Why Prince?

Here’s what Rick Neuheisel said initially on this morning’s conference call in which he named freshman Kevin Prince his starting quarterback.
“We’ve decided Kevin Prince is going to be our starting quarterback,” Neuheisel said. “It’s no secret he was getting the lion’s share of the reps with the first team. I felt he had the requisite skills to be given that opportunity, and we wanted to see what he can do with it. While there were growing pains, I still believe he showed the necessary poise and understanding of what Norm (Chow) is trying to get taught, not only at the position but also managing the game. There’s a huge upside for Kevin. We’ll give him the chance to be our starting quarterback.”
