  • Schiano Holding Off on Naming QB

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano says he won’t release his depth chart until his Monday press conference.

    Even then, we may not know whether Dom Natale (pictured) or Tom Savage will start the Sept. 7 opener against Cincinnati because Schiano could choose to list both of them.

    ”Well, neither of them are captains so I don’t have to tell them until they’re in the tunnel, ‘Hey, you’re the guy.’ ” Schiano told reporters after Saturday’s final practice of camp, according to Keith Sargeant of the Home News Tribune. “I’m only kidding. The guy’s going to know who’s starting. I probably won’t tell you guys. That’s why I probably won’t make it public.”

    Schiano has repeatedly said he may use three QBs in the opener — Natale, the fifth-year redshirt senior; Savage, the true freshman; and fifth-year senior Jabu Lovelace, who will operate in the gun-run package that maximizes his running abilities.

    “They’ll know soon enough,” Schiano said, referring to Cincinnati’s coaching staff. “The [quarterback] will come trotting out first series – that’s who they got.”
