Football Roundtable: Is a “Two-Quarterback” System Right For Kansas?


Michael Cummings got the start for the Kansas Jayhawks this week in their game against Oklahoma. This was his first start of the season, but he has played in KU’s previous two games against Kansas State and Oklahoma State.

Cummings went 10-for-21 with 111 yards and two interceptions. He had no touchdowns as Kansas’ only score was a rushing touchdown. That rushing score came from James Sims.

Last week, Charlie Weis discussed a “two-quarterback” system for the Jayhawks.This system would consist of both Dayne Crist and Michael Cummings.

Would this be a good thing for Kansas or should Weis just stick with Michael Cummings as the starter for the Jayhawks?

George: Cummings deserves the chance after his showing against Oklahoma State. With Crist’s struggles, Cummings deserves a chance to get Kansas a win.

Ricky: I hated the idea of a “two-quarterback” system when I heard Charlie Weis mention it last week. Why punish Cummings for the short comings of Dayne Crist? Cummings should be the starting quarterback and Crist should be a “mentor.” Even though Crist has not shown that he can lead this Kansas team, I believe he can still help Cummings understand what is happening in the game and mentor him for his future at KU.
