Got our first glimpse into the Bison quarterback situation heading into the FCS national title game against Jacksonville State and, as expected, it wasn’t much in the line of solid information. Easton Stick may be a redshirt freshman, but he handles himself rather well in the “Who’s it Going to Be?” situation.
Asked if a decision between he and Carson Wentz was made, he as you would expected said no. Hey, ya gotta ask.
But in a moment of unselfishness, he did say he would like to see the Bison senior quarterback on the field one last time.
“One of the personal goals I’ve had is to do everything I can that if he had one more opportunity to play, he would get that opportunity,” Stick said, “and to get on the field and play one more time. We’re just trying to win the next one and that’s what it comes down to as a team.”
Practice is closed to everybody and their mother and we probably won’t know until 11 a.m. on Jan. 9 if Wentz will play or not. His original healing time was expected to be six to eight weeks and the title game would be 13 weeks after the injury. Head coach Chris Klieman won’t be available until next Monday, so any official word, if there will be one, will have to wait until then.
