I was wondering if there is a chance that E.J. Manuel gets a shot at the starting job over Weatherford this fall? If Weatherford becomes the starter, how short of a leash will Bowden have on him? Do you guys expect to see a good amount of playing time for Manuel as a freshmen?

In all likelyhood, EJ Manuel will redshirt. The QB race is between Weatherford and Christian Ponder. Now unless Manuel looks like Chris Weinke from the moment he steps on campus, he will redshirt.

Pretty much no chance, Ponder is an excellent backup and has a decent chance to unseat Weatherford, especially with Weatherford out in the spring. E.J. Manuel is almost guarenteed to redshirt as D'Vontrey Richardson is pretty set in third string. Manuel is also pretty raw coming out, Fisher needs to work with his accuracy a bit before he's ready.
