Know Your Bulls: #16 Joe Licata

Know your Bulls is a countdown to the kick off. If will look at every single UB football player on the roster. When the players number matches the number of days remaining then it's his turn in the spotlight.

Position: Quarterback

From: Wiliamsville, New York

Used A Redshirt

Say hello to this years Quarterback controversy waiting to happen. Joe Licata seems entrenched as the second line quarterback behind Junior Alex Zordich. The problem is that the media, and UB coaching staff, keep telling us just how tight the competition is between the two.

If I were a betting man I would say the competition is not all that tight. Zordich looked far better in the spring game and has been the guy getting the most first team reps this summer. "It's close" makes for good print but barring some unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances Zordich takes the field against Georgia.

Then what?

The Georgia game can go very badly and we return home for Morgan State, a school UB should take behind the woodshed. Say Licata plays in the second half and looks good. Then the seeds are planted.

Licata is mister everything in Western New York Football. During his final season at Williamsville south he completed 64% of his passes for 2,573 yards and 34 touchdowns. He set school records for passing yards in a game (492), season (2,573) and career (6,671).

Unless this is the year Quinn finishes his rebuilding task the Bulls could have a rough go of it and at some point Licata may get his shot.
