Doeren names Brisett starter, before the first bowl game is played

It's not stated explicitly in the blog this thread links to, but it would appear that Doeren was responding to questions by a reporter during an exclusive interview. It's not as if he called a press conference to make an announcement. Given the poor play at the QB position this year, it's not surprising the subject of who will lead the Pack next year came up.
I doubt what he said comes as a surprise to returning players. First, it's probably obvious to them, and second he likely told them before talking to Dinich. While the team isn't allowed to hold formal practices until spring, there is surely an expectation that receivers will work out with QBs on their own before that. And if you are trying to work on timing and chemistry, it sure helps to know who is going to be throwing the ball to you the most in spring practice. Doeren just made sure there was no ambiguity on that score.

Yes, but, according to sportsack that's the worst thing that a college coach could ever do! Clearing up ambiguity is a bad thing!

Back on topic.
evidently, there's a significant dropoff in talent there (below Brisket)...
else the competition would be communicated as 'wide-open' entering spring practice.

Poor renner.... Once a starter (and purported savior), now barely an afterthought.

he isn't just an afterthought to markie, markie says they would've beaten Duke if Renner wasn't injured...

Hey you've got to have that backup QB on the sidelines to win, right? I think TJ Yates has proven this as a fact.

just a thought...
wonder whhere would dook be without Connette?

Poor, poor, renner.. He was supposed to be "their savior".. And 2nd NFL QB!
LOL @ tDelusional

It was very clear that the best QB on the State roster after last Spring Practice was Brissett so it is no surprise that he is currently the best QB on the roster.
The reason Doeren went out and got Mitchell for this year was because he recognized tha tnone of the current eligible QBs were suited to run his offense. Brissett is and has been in the system for a full year. He should clearly show why he was named starter at Spring Practice...don't you worry.
PS: State's season is officially over, so what difference does it matter that this announcement was made before any bowl games were played? You seem to be stretching to find stuff to complain about...
