|Adam Weber struggled last season for Minnesota, completing just 52 percent of his passes.|
"We thoroughly evaluated every aspect of quarterback play throughout the spring and Adam has earned the right to be the starter entering the 2010 season," head coach Tim Brewster said in making the announcement on gophersports.com. "MarQueis Gray will be our No. 2 quarterback, with Moses Alipate No. 3.
"We are fortunate to have three very talented young men who can all lead our team. In the final analysis, Adam's command of the offense, his leadership, decision-making and his overall play won out and right now we believe he provides our program with its best opportunity for success."
"Last year, my head was spinning in practice and in the meeting rooms," Gray said. "Coach Horton came in, and he did a lot of simplifying. His philosophy is getting better at what we're good at; start with little stuff and get better at it. That’s helping people out in a lot of ways."
"It’s not always another play when you come to the next practice," Weber said. "It’s getting better at the plays you’re working on in yesterday’s practice."
