Under what circumstances would someone who started every game at quarterback last season (Cody Kessler) lose his job to someone who has yet to take a college snap (Max Browne)?
I’m not saying it cannot happen. But I do wonder if Steve Sarkisian thinks the quarterback position is essentially settled unless Kessler struggles during the actual season. Coaches tend to be conservative making changes at quarterback and Sarkisian probably doesn’t want to start his USC career by going out on limb.
Does all of this make spring practice a little less dramatic? Would Sarkisian want to face Fresno State with an inexperience quarterback and have someone who started every game on the bench. Seems highly unlikely.
