Back That Alex Up (And Other News Hits)

Sounds like Bud Martin got Fredo-ed.

Asked about his backup quarterback situation today, FIU coach Ron Turner said "We have two No. 2s. It'll be Christian or Trey."

That's true freshman Christian Alexander and fifth-year graduate senior transfer Trey Anderson. Much of camp, redshirt freshman Martin got second team reps. No surprise that Anderson's in the running. He's the only guy besides McGough who has seen a college defense from behind center. Alexander's ascension surprises a bit after Martin had a good camp (so I heard) and a good semi-public scrimmage. But Turner loves Alexander's maturity. Being 6-3 with an arm doesn't hurt, either.

The offensive line's still a Jumble in progress, which will be the subject of the story that'll be going online later today and in print tomorrow.

Turner said the secondary's down pat with rotation possibly only with the safeties. I'm wondering if something's up with senior cornerback Jeremiah McKinnon. Don't be surprised if junior Deonte Wilson sees a lot of time opposite Richard Leonard this week. Turner said there would be some rotation among the safeties. I'm betting we'll see freshman Tyree Johnson out of Miami Gardens Carol City if that happens.

The line is down to UCF by 14 from 17. Many somebodies thinking UCF won't score enough to cover.
