Over the past month, UCONN has had to deal with the loss of several players on both offense and defense.
Backup QB Cody Endres and offfensive guard Erik Kuraczea have been suspended indefinitely for undisclosed reasons, the Kuraczea suspension having less of an effect upon the 2 deep of the team.
But last year, when Zach Frazer went down, it was Endres that had to step in and step up. He performed well and even kept the starting position after Frazer was cleared to come back.
If Frazer goes down during the Michigan game (he has had a tendency to get injured), the UCONN offense is almost sure to stall as they are digging deep to see who will be able to step up to the backup QB position. Currently, 2-star recruit and RS Freshman Michael Box is the front runner for that job.
While they only have 11 Seniors on the team this year, they do have 8 offensive starters returning, and 8 defensive starters returning. Outside of the starting lineup, the Husky two deep is filled with mostly RS Freshmen and Sophomores.
