Will Steven Threet Start For ASU Against Portland State?

After playing Friday's mock scrimmage with the first-team offense, it appears that Dennis' starting QB announcement on Monday is leaning towards Steven Threet.

The vagabond QB may have finally found his place in college football in his second-to-final season of eligibility. Threet started out at Georgia Tech, but lasted just one season before deciding to transfer to the Michigan Wolverines.

Threet looked like he had gained control of the starting job as Wolverine QB, but he got off to a shaky 2-7 start and was replaced by Nick Sheridan.

After the 2008-2009 season, Threet decided to shed his snow boots and winter coats for some flip flops and board shorts as he found his way to Tempe. ASU was a good fit for Threet as it gave him a chance to learn the offense while sitting out due to the transfer, and enter his senior season as the most experienced QB on the roster.

While Threet most likely picked up the ASU offense (if that is what you call it) in 2009, he has been forced to quickly erase it from memory and relearn new OC Noel Mazzonne's offense.

So far, neither Threet nor Osweiler have pulled ahead as a clear-cut choice, but Threet's big game experience may have proven to be the edge he needed to win the spot.
