Future Depth - Quarterbacks

It's never too early to start talking about next season is it?

Many people think this is may be a break out season for the Buffalo Bulls. After three years of lack luster results UB coach Jeff Quinn has a roster which should be able to compete in most if not all conference games and might even have the fire power to take two or so out of conference contests.

It's also a year where the team is stacked with senior stars. Johnson, Neutz, Oliver, and Mack are going to be the players who need to put on a show for UB to contend for their second division title. So what happens after this season and into the future?

Quarterback looks to be one of the more stable positions going forward. Our starter and the third string quarterbacks are just sophomores and behind them are two freshman.

Joe Licata was thrown into the fire last season after Alexi Zordich was injured against Toledo. The redshirt freshman played well enough to win three of his four starts leading UB to the it's first three game win streak since 2008. Going into the spring Licata, a pocket passer, was expected to win the role from Alex Zordich who is more of a dual threat.

When the dust settled Licata emerged as the starter and Zordich, a Senior, became his backup.

Alex Zordich was UB's starter for a span in 2010, then behind Senior transfer Zach Anderson in 2011 only to resume at the starting job last season. Half way though the season he was injured against Toledo. When Zordich is in the Bulls offense relies heavily on the read option playing to his strengths.

Tony Daniel spent last season on place holding duties where he played a huge role in UB's win over Miami. Daniel is a similar style Quarterback to Zordich.

Collin Michael was offered a scholarship after an injury in high school chased away several power five team that had been showing interest. The knee injury was enough to give some scouts pause but Michael's frame and arm strength are worth the investment.

Craig Slowik is a walk on from Joliet Catholic, the same school that gave UB Jake Stockman. Slowik got some attention back in 2011 when he set school records with a single-game school record with 366 yards and three touchdowns. At 6'4" he has a good natural build but was unable to get any other FBS offers.
