Arizona Wildcats senior quarterback B.J. Denker says he gets the same three questions these days from family, friends and strangers.
1. How is running back Ka’Deem Carey doing?
2. Are you going to be the starter?
3. Is the team going to be any good this year?
The first one is easy.
“We already know how good Ka’Deem is,” Denker said.
The other two questions are stumpers. Denker doesn’t have the answers. Coach Rich Rodriguez doesn’t have the answers. Anyone here have a crystal ball?
As for question No. 2, Denker inched closer Saturday night to being able to answer “yes.” He worked with the first-team offense in a practice/scrimmage at Arizona Stadium and ran the attack efficiently, if not with an abundance of pizzazz.
“I had a good practice,” he said.
“I didn’t force the issue. I ran the offense efficiently. Hopefully, I gave (the coaches) some confidence today. I got some confidence today, so that was good.”
