-- Washington State Cougars football coach Mike Leach
It may not be a complicated issue for Leach and the Cougars, but the decision to start junior Connor Halliday or redshirt freshman Austin Apodaca is a critical one.
"Starting out they'll be 50-50 [in number of reps]," Leach tells ESPN.com Pac-12 blogger Kevin Gemmell. "I do want to get them a lot of reps. The more the better. One guys is a redshirt freshman and then Connor has either started or been involved in a handful of games. I do want somebody to secure and lock down the position. I am going to give them as many reps as possible. It will be 50-50 for a period -- I would anticipate half or more of spring. I do have quite a bit of reps because I don't have a third guy working in. If I have three, then it's a little more tangled. Then it's harder. I'm in pretty good shape rep-wise this year."
Gemmell says the third QB, touted recruit Tyler Bruggman, will join the team in the fall.
