How does Cincinnati take Collaros off the field?

CINCINNATI -- Tony Pike will likely be back to start next week against West Virginia. He's not going to get Wally Pipp-ed by Zach Collaros.

But I can't think of an instance in recent Big East history where a player will be replaced for non-health reasons after being this good. Collaros just continues to do it all, and you could make a strong case that he belongs on the All-Big East team. He has basically won four Big East games at quarterback since the South Florida game was in doubt when he entered it.

Collaros ran 28 yards for a touchdown on a zone-read play. He's got over 400 yards of total offense. Surely, Brian Kelly will find a way to utilize his skills even when Pike comes back.
