Blog matters: Tyler Harvey to ignore deadline

2: According to NCAA rules, Harvey has until today to withdraw his application for the June 25 draft.

Now entering the third week of spring football practice for Idaho, the depth chart is starting to come into focus.

At quarterback, Matt Linehan’s winter spent working out with Tony Romo seems to have paid dividends. Linehan has looked the better quarterback in the competition with Jake Luton, who displayed an ability to throw outside the pocket during his five-touchdown performance last Saturday.

That doesn’t mean it’s totally over for Luton. He’ll have the rest of spring and all summer to close the gap. Linehan has displayed the touch and command of the offense necessary to take control of the job. Luton has displayed a golden arm and good pocket presence, though needs to work on decision-making and touch on his throws. He’ll have plenty of time to do it that over the summer, which is what coaches are going to wait for before declaring a starter.

Gunnar Amos is not in the picture to be the starter, but has progressed well over the spring. His role in the offense is more as a runner and taking advantage of his athleticism.
