If all goes according to plan, Irish fans won't have to worry about who the backup quarterback is.
But if something were to happen and cause a struggle with Everett Golson, who would Brian Kelly turn to?
We don't know.
Kelly said Thursday there is no definite #2 quarterback between Tommy Rees and Andrew Hendrix, meaning Kelly is leaving his options open to turn to either one on Saturday against Purdue in the home opener if he needs to.
Rees is coming off a one game suspension dating back to his May arrest. He was the starter to end each of the last two seasons.
