SHOCKING NEWS: KIRK COUSINS NAMED STARTER


After 12 games, today Mark Dantonio finally -- grudgingly, perhaps -- removed the "OR" designation that has vexed us all season long: your starting quarterback for the Alamo Bowl is shockingly not Kirk Cousins OR Keith Nichol.  As reported first by Rexrode and later confirmed on the official site, it's Kirk Cousins.  Period.

There's probably no need to rehash the arguments and incredulity about this topic; that can all be found here.  This decision is the right one, and although it should have been made a long time ago, I'm glad it's finally happened.  The number of distractions and level of drama is already far too high heading into an important game; thankfully, we apparently won't be bringing this particular controversy/saga/facepalm to San Antonio as well.

Once more, with feeling:

NAME CMP ATT YDS CMP% YDS/A TD INT RAT
Kirk Cousins 185 301 2460 61.5 8.17 18 7 145.2
Keith Nichol 49 91 764 53.8 8.40 7 3 143.2

Nichol has been good, Cousins has been better.  This is the correct choice.
