Junior quarterback Connor Frazier started in Towson's 54-0 loss to West Virginia on Saturday night, but he eventually gave way to redshirt senior Joe Brennan in the second half. Nonetheless, there is no quarterback controversy. Tigers coach Rob Ambrose said barring something surprising, Frazier will open Saturday's game at Delaware State. “It's definitely Connor's job - period,” Ambrose said Monday during his weekly conference call organized by the Colonial Athletic Association.

Joppatowne quarterback C.J. Townes took the snap, moved left, faked a pitchout and cut sharply to his right before running for an 18-yard touchdown in the first quarter against Fallston last month. That play gave the Mariners an early lead in an eventual 21-0 victory and became a turning point in their season. Townes said that touchdown showed his teammates that they could trust him as their starting quarterback. Coach Bill Waibel had given him the job a few days before that game, the team's sixth, after making several quarterback changes while Joppatowne struggled to a 3-2 start.

As the former wide receivers coach at Maryland, first-year head coach Lee Hull is intent on adding a passing element to Morgan State's offense. But tailback Lamont Brown III hopes Hull won't overlook what has been the unit's traditional strength: running the football. “I look at myself and Herb [Walker Jr.] as two of the top running backs in the [Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference],” said Brown, a redshirt sophomore. “Whether [Hull] wants to run the ball or we have to get involved with the passing game, we're still going to be there, and he has two of the best running backs in the league and can't forget about us.” Brown, redshirt sophomore Walker and senior Tracy Martin make up a formidable partnership in the offensive backfield.

When the Towson football team captured a share of last year's Colonial Athletic Association title, the offense was helmed by dual-threat quarterback Grant Enders. This fall, the program - ranked No. 3 in the latest Football Championship Subdivision poll by The Sports Network - is off to a 5-0 start and a 1-0 record in the conference with an offense guided by Peter Athens, who is more of a traditional pocket passer. To Sean McDonnell, the difference between Enders in 2012 and Athens in 2013 is only stylistic.

SAN FRANCISCO -- In promising Joe Montana that he will be the starting quarterback if he returns to the NFL team, the San Francisco 49ers are committing suicide.All you have to do is look at what has happened the last two seasons.Two years ago Montana was unquestionably the starting quarterback going into training camp. Midway through, he developed a twinge in his elbow. When Montana was sidelined, Steve Young became the starting quarterback, for which the 49ers were totally unprepared.The offense was geared to Montana's abilities, not Young's; it took the 49ers weeks before they even changed their offensive thinking to accommodate Young throwing with his left arm. That was a big factor in the 49ers' stumbling start, which eventually cost them a spot in the playoffs.

This is not what Tom Bill envisioned when he showed up at Penn State five years ago.Not his second-team role as a senior quarterback. Not his suspension from the football team as a junior. And certainly not his ensuing 30-day stay in a rehabilitation center last January for alcohol abuse.Bill, a high school All-American, had expected better."I definitely hoped for more," he said yesterday. "Two years ago when I got to start and I started so well against Virginia, I thought things might really go well for me. They didn't.

ATLANTA -- Week 2 of the Stone Age. Time for the Ravens to get primitive.Primitive, as in smash-mouth football. Primitive, as in getting Errict Rhett 30 carries. Primitive, as in taking away Stoney Case's slingshot.The Ravens are 5-20 on the road. The Atlanta Falcons are the defending NFC champions. But if you think the Ravens can't win today at the Georgia Dome, you haven't been paying attention to the 1999 NFL season.The 0-3 Falcons are ripe to be 0-4, if Ravens coach Brian Billick employs a ground-based offensive attack rather than the snazzy passing game that worked so well for him in Minnesota.

Scott Mitchell is not coming to Baltimore with any grand illusions of turning around the struggling Ravens in just one season, but he feels he is at the peak of his career and ready to take a major step to the next level.Mitchell, 31, agreed to a one-year contract with the Ravens worth $3 million Tuesday after he was traded from the Detroit Lions. He spoke about his new deal for the first time yesterday as well as his nine-year career, his new team and future.Mitchell has a tough assignment with the Ravens, a team that has the fifth-best running back in the AFC Central, a suspect offensive line, and no clutch receiver consistently in the lineup.

CARLISLE, Pa. -- In Broadway musicals, when the understudy gets a chance to replace the leading performer, a star is born.It even happens that way in pro football on occasion. Jeff Hostetler, who stepped in for injured quarterback Phil Simms and won a Super Bowl for the New York Giants, is the latest example.These tales don't always have a happy ending, though.When Stan Humphries of the Washington Redskins got a chance to step in after starting quarterback Mark Rypien hurt his knee last year, he didn't become a star.

The competition to open the season as Morgan State's starting quarterback has come down to two men. With Seth Higgins still recuperating from offseason shoulder surgery, redshirt senior Robert Council and redshirt junior Moses Skillon split reps with the first offense during a scrimmage at Hughes Stadium Wednesday. First-year coach Lee Hull confirmed that Council and Skillon are battling for the right to start at Eastern Michigan on Aug. 30. “It's down to Moses and Robert,” said Hull, a former wide receivers coach at Maryland.

Connor Frazier and Joe Brennan are roommates, which might make their quest to become Towson's starting quarterback a little uncomfortable. But Frazier said both players understand that the competition is limited to the football field. “I think when you're coming into a camp situation like this, you always have to compete as if you are winning the starting job,” Frazier said. “Joe and I are doing a great job of competing against one another. So I think camp's going pretty well so far.” The battle to open the season opener against Central Connecticut on Aug. 30 under center has essentially boiled down to a two-man race between Frazier, a junior, and Brennan, a redshirt senior.

Gregg Frazier knew the Towson redshirt sophomore quarterback who struggled in the third quarter before scoring the game-winning touchdown against Eastern Washington last Saturday. As the youngest of three boys in his family, Connor Frazier - that quarterback - desperately wanted to play with his brothers, Gregg and Kyle, while growing up. They relented under one condition: no special exceptions for their brother, who is 8 years younger than Gregg and 3 years younger than Kyle. "He grew up with a football in his hand since he was just in diapers," said Gregg Frazier, a 28-year-old assistant football coach at Damascus High School in Montgomery County, where all three Frazier boys played and graduated.

The revolving door has spun around once again in Cleveland, revealing yet another quarterback change for the Browns. For Sunday's game against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, Jason Campbell steps under center to start an NFL regular-season game for the first time since 2011. The 31-year-old replaces demoted starter Brandon Weeden , who was uninspiring in his chance to reclaim his grip on the job following Bryan Hoyer 's season-ending knee injury.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland's injury situation sank to new depths Thursday with news that the team's starting quarterback, tailback and tight end would join its top two receivers in missing Saturday's homecoming game against No. 9 Clemson. Less than a week after receivers Stefon Diggs and Deon Long suffered season-ending lower leg fractures against Wake Forest, the team announced that quarterback C.J.

COLLEGE PARK  - Maryland quarterback Caleb Rowe's second career start began under circumstances similar to his first as a freshman last season. It nearly ended with similar heartbreak for the 6-foot-3, 210-pound sophomore. A year ago, after taking over for fellow freshman Perry Hills, Rowe saw his own season cut short with the same anterior cruciate ligament tear that had ended Hills' and C.J. Brown's years. It came in a three-point defeat to Boston College. With Brown ruled out because of a concussion suffered in last week's shellacking at Florida State, Rowe came out of Byrd Stadium with his knee healthy seemingly intact and his team victorious, surviving with a 27-26 win over Virginina at Byrd Stadium.

It was only recently that linebacker Terrell Suggs wondered whether the Ravens should stick with rookie Joe Flacco as the starting quarterback. After witnessing the Ravens' 29-10 pummeling of the Oakland Raiders yesterday, Suggs and the sellout crowd at M&T Bank Stadium had another question on their mind. What can't Flacco do? In what likely will go down as a unique performance by a Ravens quarterback, Flacco showed off his arm (throwing for a 70-yard touchdown), his hands (catching a 43-yard pass)

Stoney Case as the Ravens' starting quarterback? It's the popular choice, certainly. And given the way he brought the Ravens from behind Sunday in relief of Scott Mitchell, it's the only choice, really.But let's not mistake the move for anything other than what it is:A Hail Mary.One of those long-odds things that you just throw out there with your eyes closed, hoping it'll turn into something good.Sure, Case, 27, has been an exciting player with a big-play touch in his short time with the Ravens.

Junior Seth Higgins became the first quarterback this season to start and finish a game for Morgan State, going wire-to-wire in Saturday's 27-21 loss to Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference rival Norfolk State. Higgins, an Edgewood native and graduate who has accounted for the offense's last five touchdowns (three passing and two rushing), earned coach Donald Hill-Eley's vote of confidence as the starter for the remainder of the year - with a caveat. “I think he has, but you know how that thing is,” Hill-Eley said.
