Offense “looking at everything right now”

Offensive coordinator Tim Lappano met with us a little while ago and left the impression that the quarterback job is a little more open than it was portrayed Monday by Tyrone Willingham.
Lappano said Carl Bonnell and Johnny DuRocher will split reps evenly in practice this week with a starter to be named later in the week.
Lappano said that Bonnell enters the week as the starter, but that everything about the offense will be evaluated.
“We’re looking at everything right now,” Lappano said.
That includes the running back spot, where he said it’s likely that Kenny James will start. Lappano said James is close to 100 percent physically.
But Lappano also said that Johnie Kirton will get an increased look at running back this week and not just in short-yaradage situations.
Lappano also said the offensive line will be evaluated this week, with the most competitive spot at left tackle where Ben Ossai has been starting ahead of Erik Berglund. He also said there is a chance that Casey Bulyca will have to start this week ahead of Clay Walker, though Walker said he is fine after spraining his ankle Saturday against Oregon.
Lappano said opening up jobs in practice this week will hopefully energize the team for Saturday’s game.
“We need to spark things up a little bit,” he said.
