Will Cyler Miles See Action Against BYU?
(1090 The Fan) — One game remains for the Washington Huskies this season, one final chance to accomplish the goals the team set for itself entering the season and for each player to show scouts, as well as their new coach, what they are capable of.
With senior quarterback Keith Price graduating after the bowl game, new head coach Chris Petersen inherits Miles, Jeff Lindquist and true freshman Troy Williams as his quarterbacks. Only Miles has started a game in the NCAA, a 69-27 win over Oregon State.
In that sense, it could be important for interim head coach Marques Tuiasosopo to get redshirt sophomore quarterback Cyler Miles some significant playing time, i.e. not just mop-up duty late in the fourth quarter.
“I’m not sure,” Tuiasosopo said in regards to whether that could happen. “Obviously, Keith and Cyler are both very capable of doing whatever it is we plan to do. But we are going to prepare like we always have and if that is something that we decide to do, then it is.”
Whether Miles plays or doesn’t, likely doesn’t matter much. At the end of the day, Petersen will have plenty of opportunity to see his quarterbacks in action when spring practice gets under way.
However, getting the likely 2014 starter some more significant game action does seem to also make a lot of sense. I guess we’ll see.
