Looks as if Gary Andersen has His Quarterback in Tanner McEvoy

Is it just me, or did it seem that Wisconsin Badgers head coach Gary Andersen was going to name Tanner McEvoy his starting quarterback all along?

On Friday a story broke via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal citing three different sources that McEvoy in fact would be named the starter when the Badgers take the field to kick off the season August 30th when they take on the LSU Tigers in Houston, TX. A shock to some as incumbent Joel Stave was thought to nab the starting spot simply due to his experience.

But McEvoy is the type of quarterback Andersen and offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig have been looking for. His mobility is something that Andersen has been looking for to add into this offense and he has not made that secret. Both him and Ludwig want to spread the field more and become less predictable, all while keeping this offense a “run-first” offense.
