Coach Cut | by Jay

Nice write-up on Coach Cutcliffe from the South Bend Trib yesterday. Brady's obviously his starting QB going into spring practice, but Cutcliffe has some choice words that should stoke the competitive fires a bit:

"(Quinn) is in a new system with new coaches," Cutcliffe said. "He's got to reprove himself ... the competition is there. What we can do with the young players at quarterback, how far we can bring them, I don't know.

"But I want them to compete to be starters and if they don't then they are not the right kind of people to be quarterbacks in our system.

"Brady is the starter. There is no secret behind that because he has the experience and he has the time," he continued. "But he is also in a position where he is having to reprove himself so he's starting all over again. I think if he uses that to his advantage, he will gain great ground."
