With Wisconsin's season opener barely more than two weeks away, the race for the No. 1 quarterback position remains taut and entertaining. Will the winner be junior transfer Allan Evridge, who has yet to play a game at UW, or senior Tyler Donovan, who went 2-0 as a starter last season filling in for the injured John Stocco? The call here, albeit a close one with 11 scheduled practices left in camp, is that Evridge will emerge as the starter.
It will be interesting to see who comes out on top....

The word I have heard about Clay is that he is eligible and now practicing with the team. I also believe all the stuff with Lance Smith was dropped down to misdemeanors, so hopefully he won't be missing any time. Looks like we will have the depth at RB that it looked like we would have after all!
One thing that should help whichever QB that is selected is that the rest of our offense should be able to support him. The O-line should be solid even with the loss of Thomas, we will always have the strong UW running game, and we have experienced people catching balls in Beckum, Swan, and Hubbard. Someone I would like to see emerge as a receiver is Lance Kendricks. He's got Hubbard's size but I think he is a little more athletic and hopefully he won't have Hubbard's problems with the dropsies.
MADISON, Wis. -- Tyler Donovan will begin the season as the starting quarterback for No. 7 Wisconsin.
With 10 days remaining until Wisconsin's Sept. 1 season opener against Washington State, coach Bret Bielema listed Donovan, a fifth-year senior, ahead of junior Allan Evridge on the team's updated depth chart.
Earlier this month, Bielema said he wanted to decide on a starting quarterback in time to give whomever won the job 10 days to prepare for the opener.
Donovan led the Badgers to victories at Iowa and against Buffalo when starter John Stocco was injured last season. But Evridge, a transfer from Kansas State, might have more long-term potential than Donovan.
The Badgers also listed freshman Gabe Carimi as the starter at left tackle, making him the apparent replacement for Joe Thomas, who was drafted No. 3 overall by the Cleveland Browns in April.
Any word on how sophomore Scott Tolzien looks, or where he'll end up on the depth chart. Went to High School with him, he was really cool guy.
I hate to say it, but it doesn't look like he'll ever get on the field for UW. He seems like a really bright guy and a type of guy you like on your team, but he has an uphill battle right now. Evridge is all but guaranteed the starting job next year. So his chance will come as a RS Jr. Unless there is a transfer he will have to prove himself over Dustin Sherer who has shown promise and will be a RS SR. then (most likely to transfer), James Stallons will be a RS So. (a Sorgi replica), and a highly touted incoming QB Curt Phillips (assuming he signs he'll be a RS FR or So.) who has already put up insane numbers in HS.
