If you include ND, seven of 15 ACC teams have either an injured starting QB or a QB controversy over who should start right now.— David Hale (@DavidHaleESPN) September 19, 2015
Look around at the teams on our schedule:
Notre Dame -- Lost Zaire for the year with a broken ankle. (Addazio kept compairing Wade to Zaire in the preseason since they have similar skill sets and are both lefties. They proved to have similar seasons in an unexpected way.)
Syracuse -- Lost Hunt for the year and backup Eric Dungey suffered a head injury last week. His status is unknown.
Wake Forest -- John Wofford left the Army game with an unspecified injury and remains under wraps.
Virginia Tech -- Brewer broke his collarbone in the opener against Ohio State. Even if he recovers in time to start our game on Halloween (unlikely), he will still be less than 100%.
And this is only where things stand now. Other teams will see serious injuries between now and when we play them.
Losing Wade hurts, but I am not resetting my expectations until I see what we really have in Smith and Flutie.
