I've always believed, and this was taught to me by Coach (Dick) MacPherson, that every year you have to earn the right for a starting position at Syracuse University. Coach Mac used to always ask me, 'Is Doug Marrone the starting right tackle at Syracuse University?" And I'd go, "Yes, I am." And he'd say, "No, the Syracuse University starting right tackle is Doug Marrone." The point he was trying to make was that it was something I needed to earn every year, and that's no different than any position on the team. As far as the quarterback position, it's not any different. The person we can win with will play, whether it's a fifth-year senior, a freshman or a sophomore or a junior. We're going to play the players we can with."
