Virginia quarterback decision near

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen isn't the only coach in the conference who's had three quarterbacks to choose from. Al Groh still hasn't name a starter from the trio of Peter Lalich, Scott Deke and Marc Verica, but his son, offensive coordinator Mike Groh, said a decision should come this week.

"I think it's winding down," said the younger Groh, who was available via teleconference today. "We're going to start our preparation on SC ... so certainly he'll be in place by then."

Asked if the No. 1 signal caller would be named by Wednesday, Groh said, "Yes. I would think so."

"They've all had good days and bad days, and fortunately for us more good than bad," he said. "They've all done very well. I'm pleased with their development, their progress, their command of the offense. We scrimmage today, so I'm anxious to see how they do today."

Is it clear who the No. 1 guy is?

"Do I have an opinion on it?" he asked. "Yes, I do."

Guess we'll have to wait to find out what it is.
