David Polaski and sports editor Anthony Lombardi discuss this week's quarterback change from Ozzie Mann to Jack Milas.They also discuss what has to happen for Ball State's to beat Western Michigan in their Homecoming game on Oct. 11, 2014.
One off-season radically shifted the Ball State football team’s level of success. The Cardinals are 1-4 and looking for answers at quarterback after finishing last season 10-2 and making a second consecutive bowl game appearance. The transition from record-setting quarterback Keith Wenning to recently-benched redshirt sophomore quarterback Ozzie Mann and his redshirt freshman replacement Jack Milas isn’t smooth thus far.
The Ball State football team had one quarterback starter for the past three years. After five games, it will have two.The team announced redshirt freshman Jack Milas will start Saturday’s Homecoming game against Western Michigan, replacing redshirt sophomore Ozzie Mann.It is currently unknown how the change will affect the offensive game plan, as Milas has yet to attempt a pass in a game for Ball State.
Since 1926, the Ball State football team has gone 53-32-2 in 87 Homecoming games. In 1943, the team did not play any games, due to World War II.
Jordan Williams described the new starting quarterback for the football team as goofy, crazy, silly and having a never-ending smile. It’s just who Jack Milas is.
