NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies football blogger Chris Hall breaks down who could start at quarterback for UW in 2013. Keith Price is coming off a subpar season, begging the question, is there a better fit under center? Cyler Miles, Troy Williams, and Jeff Lindquist all saw time in the Spring Game, but Miles is the only one who had much of a positive impact.
