    QB position battle - Chronicle Weighs in (Booth?)

    Not sure if this is a Booth (forgive me if it is). I saw this article buried on SF Gate http://www.sfgate.com/collegesports/...ck-8409357.php. There is nothing terribly enlightening or new about the article. I would, however, think it more likely that Max Gilliam will blueshirt and that Vic Viramontes will see playing time this year as the change of pace QB (mostly running the ball like Luke did his frosh season). Sonny has said that he is intrigued by Vic. He could be a real weapon in short yardage situations.

    After viewing the spring game video, I was very impressed with all our QBs.
    I was especially impressed with Kline and I'm wondering why he didn't get more love from the staff following that game.
    I don't see Webb performing any better than that.

    Heart, indeed, all QBs did well, ultimately. Kline looked exceptional. As I had said before, from reports we were supplied, his other outings in Spring ball were damn good as well. The Spring Game was not an aberration...

    The team had a chance to get Web, a QB with not only more experience, but particular experience with our offense. Going with a grad transfer QB is a big decision. Two on the roster, just doesn't make sense.

    I get the impression the staff was upfront with him; thus the decision to seek grad school opportunities elsewhere. While seemingly not official, it does look like he will land at Fresno State. A few weeks back one of their boards stated that he had been throwing with their receivers, and the feedback was very good. A recent thread regarding their first game in Nebraska has some discussion on Kline:

    Webb has had much more experience and success (both on the field and general and in our type of offense in particular) than Kline.

    All the QBs looked exceptional in the Spring Game in large part because they played a defense made up primarily of walk ons. Kline had a very up and down Spring in practices. He continued to have times where he threw the ball too often to the defense and his accuracy left him. That said, he had times when he looked great. I believe Dykes was up front with him that his chances to start were not good. Dykes and Spavital want someone who is more consistent, less interception prone and who either has no track record in college football or a good one. I'll be rooting for Kline at Fresno State and will also be confident that his departure allows us to start one of two QBs who will clearly be better for the 2016 Cal team.
