Vito’s Guess: McNulty to Start

UPDATE: Mini-Mac will start.

I haven’t really seen much beyond rumors so this is as good of a guess as any, I suppose.

This is just a gut feeling, but I think there is a very good chance Andrew McNulty starts on Saturday against Southern Miss.

That just seems to be the way this is headed.

McNulty sat behind Derek Thompson and for years and hasn’t really gotten much of a crack at the starting job.

Personally, I think it is a mistake to pull Dajon, the most talented QB on the roster (By Mac’s own admission). He’s made some poor decisions recently, especially against UAB. He also has looked really good when he makes the right decisions. I don’t know about McNulty not ever getting a “crack” at the starting job. He should have been the clear number one coming into this year based on his knowledge of the system and his years in it. The play in practice is how you earn game time repetitions. Apparently he wasn’t doing enough there to win the gig.

I hope he does well today if he is indeed the signal caller.
