Petrino "probably" knows U of L starting QB

University of Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino held his game week news conference on Monday afternoon but still didn't have any update on who might be the Cardinals' starting quarterback. The Cardinals will release a two-deep chart on Tuesday.

University of Louisville coach Bobby Petrino is five days from the opener against Auburn and he still hasn't named a quarterback for the Cardinals, in fact the school doesn't even have a two-deep chart.

Petrino said he "probably" knows who his quarterback is going to be to start the game on Saturday and noted the Cardinals will release a two-deep chart on Tuesday "when Auburn releases theirs."

"But it will probably have a lot of 'Ors' on it," Petrino said, noting there's still competition going on at quarterback and several positions on the offensive line at U of L.

"Our players will know who the starter is," Petrino said, noting he likely won't announce a QB until game day.

Petrino said the competition has been great for his team and said he's ready to get the game here.

"I'm smiling about the start of the season because I'm just tired of answering the same questions," he said with a laugh. "I'm just anxious to get going and I'm very excited about this opener, it should be a terrific environment and a great game."

Reggie Bonnafon, Will Gardner, Kyle Bolina and true freshman Lamar Jackson are battling for the quarterback spot. Petrino said he wouldn't be surprised if the Cardinals used two QBs in the opener.
