Quarterback Controversy Is Over For The Kansas Jayhawks

The Kansas Jayhawks had been going through a quarterback controversy recently. Here's a run down of the story:

  • Kale Pick and Jordan Webb went through camp battling for the starting job
  • Turner Gill names Pick the starter for North Dakota State
  • Pick looks bad and KU loses to North Dakota State
  • Webb is named the starter against Georgia Tech

And that brings us to today.

Webb's numbers on the day: 18/29 for 179 yards and three touchdowns. He's credited with an interception too but it was clearly not his fault.

Basically Webb secured himself the job for a while. Since Webb is just a redshirt freshman, and he's going to be around for a while, it's probably in Gill's best interests to give him the job and not yank it away even if he has a bad game.
