Beaty says the coaches want one more good look at all the quarterbacks in this coming Saturday’s scrimmage before choosing a starting QB, but they could choose one now if they had to.

Tom Keegan says that this QB decision is like a 4th-and-1 and Beaty is punting again. Beaty indicated that coaches have a leader for the race in mind, but Keegan asks the obvious rhetorical question: If that player has a bad scrimmage, are we back to square one?

Jesse Newell wonders if Beaty is holding back because of the “competitive advantage” he’s claimed over the past two fall camps when refusing to name a starter.

Doug Meacham talks about not having “buyer’s remorse” when it comes to naming a starting QB.

Beaty says one thing he has learned from Bill Self that he is stressing to his team this year is valuing every possession, something that the Jayhawks didn’t do well last year.

That emphasis is already being reflected in how Carter Stanley and Miles Kendrick answered some questions from reporters.
