Web Run: Starting Evans a good idea

N.C. State football coach Chuck Amato and his offensive coordinator, Marc Trestman, pushed the "Try It" button as much as the panic button on Monday by switching from Marcus Stone to Daniel Evans at quarterback. They did so for two reasons: there's no "Easy" button in college football, but more important, why not switch?

N.C. State football coach Chuck Amato and his offensive coordinator, Marc Trestman, pushed the "Try It" button as much as the panic button on Monday by switching from Marcus Stone to Daniel Evans at quarterback. They did so for two reasons: there's no "Easy" button in college football, but more important, why not switch? A big switch -- Jay Davis to Stone -- worked reasonably well last season.
