Roberson starts against Indiana State

Friday, August 30, 2013 01:06 am
BLOOMINTON — Tre Roberson won Indiana's starting quarterback job.Or did he?

Roberson started during Thursday night's 73-35 win over Indiana State. He played a quarter and was 3-for-6 for 71 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 19 yards. It was his first action since breaking his leg in the second game of last season.

Roberson bruised some ribs in the first quarter and coach Kevin Wilson decided to rest him the rest of the game. Nate Sudfeld and Cam Coffman rotated while replacing him.

Afterward, Wilson wouldn't commit to who would start IU's next game against Navy. In other words, the game is still on.

Here are Roberson's thoughts:"I took a shot. I'll get treatment all week and be ready by the next game.""I got told this morning when we were in a walk through. I felt good about it. I felt I could make plays for the team.""I feel I played pretty well for the snaps that I got.""Not really. I felt a lot of excitement. I was ready to play. I got my first hit and it felt good.""We could have scored another touchdown, but we wanted to play smart and not make them look bad. They're a great team.""I liked how we adapted. We didn't prepare for the look that they gave us, so we came out, saw what they were doing and started to make plays.""Oh, yes. If I needed to play more, I could have.""The competition is open. That's what I want. Cam and Nate are good players. Them pushing me, us pushing each other, will make us even better."
