Wow. That didn't take long. We are just seven days away and it looks like KD's coaching staff is already f*cking up this communication thingy re. their quarterbacks. Drew Olson is tired of the delay about the naming of a starting quarterback and is venting his frustrations (at the coaching staff)openly :
It's unclear why an announcement has been delayed, but what's known is frustrations are mounting. Senior quarterback Drew Olson, the incumbent, has had a solid training camp, is taking all the snaps with the first team and is seemingly the favorite.
If that is the case, it doesn't explain why fans are still in the dark about who will be directing the offense when the Bruins take on San Diego State on Sept. 3.
Freshman Ben Olson (Thousand Oaks High) has played well, but hasn't been able to unseat Drew Olson. Ben Olson's chances to start also seemed to diminish after he hit his throwing hand on a helmet Tuesday. He hasn't thrown in practice since injuring the hand.
"I think both of us are tired of it, real tired of it," Drew Olson said Friday of the delay. "It's ongoing. You're kind of living in a shadow wondering, 'What if? What's going on?' "
As for when he'll make a decision, Dorrell was noncommittal.
"There's no timeline, but it will happen sometime soon," Dorrell said. "I don't think it's a huge issue."
Sounds like the same old sh!t. Doesn't it? Well a Bruin alum who went to the scrimmage last weekend thought the same thing too. Here is his letter to the LA Times this morning:
* Will Ben Olson be the quarterback and throw to the end zone rather than the sidelines?
* Why does the team look similar to last year's, with anemic running, sideways passes and unnecessary penalties?
* Who is our game-breaker?
* Why did a burly usher grab my arm, push me and tell me to "use the gate" as I tried to step around her?
* Why was she blocking the aisle?
* What "gate"?
* Why was our alumni cheerleader wearing his sweater?
