Make a decision, avoid playing 2 quarterbacks

The quarterback position has been the most turbulent area on this Warhawk team.

Despite Jiya Wright starting all but one game this season, ULM has fielded three different quarterbacks. Terry Bowden surprisingly debuted Blake Murphy, a true freshman, early in Saturday’s eventual loss to Georgia Southern. Coming off the opening drive that resulted in a touchdown, no one except the ULM sideline expected Bowden to do anything except keep feeding the hot hand.

Bowden’s experiment produced results — the two combined for over 400 yards passing — but it’s concerning to have no true answer at the offense’s most essential position.
