The biggest one is out of his control. Sixth-year senior Brendon Kay moves back into the starting quarterback job for a game against Northwestern State on Saturday night now that Munchie Legaux is gone with an injured left knee.
The Bearcats (1-1) have no concerns about Kay's ability to run the offense. Their main question is whether his shoulder holds up.
"It's 90 to 95 percent," Kay said. "By Saturday, I'll be full-go.”
Tuberville has been moving players around following a 45-17 loss at Illinois that gave him a better idea of how his new team might fit together. He'll get the first chance to test it on Saturday night against the Demons (2-0).
