The Daily Aggie :: 10/13/10

Be sure to check out this week's interview with Aggie head football coach DeWayne Walker. The Aggies have a win under their belt and a renewed sense of confidence, especially on defense, which Coach Walker hopes will get them win a few more games this season.

Of course, the question on everybody's mind is, "Will Andrew Manley start at quarterback on Saturday?" The answer? Well, you won't get an answer until later this week. Coach Walker and his staff want to evaluate their situation throughout this week and are waiting to see if Matt Christian will be available on Saturday. Manley will definitely see time on Saturday though.

We're definitely one of those people who are on the "start Andrew Manley" bandwagon, however, we made the following comment last night in response to the Las Cruce Sun-News' Teddy Feinberg's acknowledgment that he too thinks Manley should start.

Jeff Fleming did almost exactly the same thing against UNM in last year's game that Andrew Manley did in this year's game. Trevor Walls had started the UNM game and was largely ineffective moving the offense throughout the game, particularly in the second half. Jeff Fleming was inserted into the game in the fourth quarter for two series, the last of which he moved the Aggies down the field on that epic 16-play, seven minute game-winning touchdown drive. The fans went crazy, everyone thought that Jeff Fleming should be the starting quarterback the rest of the season.

Jeff Fleming is now a quarterback at Sacramento State.

Just food for thought as we all hope the "young pup" gets the start on Saturday.
