Pac-10 Position Breakdown: Quarterback – Cal Bears

By Sam Saig, June 12, 2009 9:18 am

With the departure of long time quarterback Nate Longshore, Cal will now look to turn the page on last season’s awkward two quarterback system that many observers believe affected the chemistry of the Bears offense in 2008. Junior Kevin Riley was part of that two-QB system (along with Longshore), and he went as far as admitting that he did not feel comfortable on the field knowing he could be pulled at any time.

By the numbers, Riley actually played much of last season, starting nine of 11 games, but throughout the season it didn’t ever feel like head coach Jeff Tedford was ready to commit to one guy. Riley finished last year with 1,360 yards passing, throwing 14 TDs and six INTs but had a less than impressive 50.7% completion rate.

Although Riley has faced his fair share of criticism, his talent is undeniable. Most importantly, he has true Pac-10 experience; and looking around the conference, that is a rarity at QB. So far in 2009, all signs point towards Riley being more poised, relaxed and efficient. He has also become a positive presence in the locker room, knowing he no longer has to share the huddle with another experienced QB.
