AUSTIN, Texas -- Since all the intrigue -- finally -- was sucked out of the Texas starting quarterback debate way back before the spring even started, there has been little left to argue over.

Ah, but it is college football so there is always a secondary debate to be had. And in this case Texas’ planned use of the second-string quarterback has stepped up into the forefront. Texas has four options -- Jalen Overstreet, Connor Brewer, Case McCoy and Tyrone Swoopes. Now there could be some movement (Overstreet to wide receiver) or a transfer (Texas lost two in 2011). Or there could be a change in status -- McCoy is the backup now but will not be with team for the entire summer, bringing into question his role in the program.

Texas has used more than one quarterback in each of the last two years due to ineffectiveness by the starter and injury. The backup could become critical. Ergo, so too is finding out who is best suited to fill that role.

That’s just what HornsNation will attempt to do with this week’s Question of the Week.
