Fry was never shy about making qb changes, and some changes lasted

Early on, after Pete Gales had a bad game at Illinois Fry started using Bohannon some as a sub QB then Gales got nicked up but when Gales was healthy Bohannon was the starter.

Poholsky had a very good early career subbing for an injured Vlasic but a season or two later when Poholsky was the game 1 starter he didnt last the first half. Fry pulled him after Poholsky was really having trouble throwing the ball. Poholsky played in more games but maybe not as a starter.

The McGwire experiment didnt last too long as Fry saw how slow his dropback was in live action and he got the quick hook in favor of Hartlieb.

Matt Rogers also beat out Poholsky and others and Ryan Somebody lost their starting job around 1994.

Fry the old qb knew some guys just couldnt make it or elevate their play.

Petras is struggling. I would like to see Padilla in to see if he can win the job and get this win
