Bielema coy about Badgers’ QB situation

SHARE Bielema coy about Badgers’ QB situation

Bret Bielema (BEE'-leh-mah) seems to have a pretty good idea of how he'll handle Wisconsin's murky quarterback situation this week.

He's just not sharing it for now.

After replacing starter Danny O'Brien with redshirt freshman Joel Stave in the second half of a narrow victory over Utah State, Bielema said Monday that he already has discussed the situation with his quarterbacks going into Saturday's game against UTEP.

The two were listed as co-starters on a depth chart released by the program Monday and Bielema wasn't willing to go into details of how he'll handle the week.

Bielema's decision to replace O'Brien was intended to send the Maryland transfer a message about turnovers.
