Tre Roberson to start at QB for Hoosiers
By Brian Bennett
The mystery of Indiana's three-man quarterback derby has been solved, at least for the start of tonight's Indiana State game: Tre Roberson will get the nod, according to the school's official Twitter feed.
Coach Kevin Wilson decided on Roberson over Cameron Coffman and Nate Sudfeld after saying that all three had played very well in practice and that there was little separation between them. Starting Roberson makes sense, as he was the team's starter last year before breaking his leg in Week 2, and he has more running ability than either Coffman or Sudfeld. However, Sudfeld and Coffman are viewed as more accurate passers.
So Roberson will take the first snaps of the season for the Hoosiers, but that might not be the end of the story. Wilson was noncomittal on whether he will play more than one quarterback tonight or in the future.
