Tommy Rees Starting Quarterback: My First Reaction

Ladies and gentlemen, this week’s game against Michigan has

the potential to be a make or break BCS chance. To make the game even more intense than it already is not only will be it be the first night game ever at the Big House, it will be Tommy Rees under center, at least to start out.

Tommy will be starting over quarterback Dayne Crist, who might have been pulled out of the game earlier then he should have. But, Rees stepped up when he was called upon and proved himself worthy yet again. not only does he have the 296 yard passing and the 2 touchdown throws, he has last years 4-0 record as a starter. This made it an obvious choice for head coach Brian Kelly.

The only down side to this move was the team chemistry in the locker room was with Dayne Crist. Dayne was well respected by the players, and now that he is a number two they’ll have to restart their season with Tommy as their number one. So far, I’d say they were responding well and their might not be any sort of downside.

Either way, the players be better ready to fight this weekend. A game you can’t miss!
