Let’s get right to it.
If the season started tomorrow (which would be not soon enough for Texas State football fans and too soon for Bobcat coaches), senior Tyler Arndt would be the starting quarterback. Arndt worked hard in the offseason to get to this stage and he’s easily the most consistent quarterback of the lot.
Even though Arndt doesn’t look 100 percent comfortable running the option, his ability to move the ball through the air and not turn the ball over separates him from the pack. Out of the quarterbacks left standing, Arndt is the best passer and has yet to be intercepted in fall camp.
Behind Arndt (in order) are redshirt freshman Jordan Moore and senior Duke DeLancellotti.
When it comes down to it, DeLancellotti is closer to Moore than Moore is to Arndt and turnovers have a lot to do with that. Moore can’t shake the turnover bug or as the coaches like to call them, ‘glitches.’ DeLancellotti is making the most of each opportunity he’s given and that’s keeping him in contention.
Look for true freshman Tyler Jones and redshirt freshman Fred Nixon to split time with the scout team. Jones appears to be a bit overwhelmed by the college game and Nixon is just “there” (best way to put it).
