Adam Froman named Louisville's starting quarterback

Charlie Strong has named senior Adam Froman as the starting quarterback for Louisville's Sept. 4th opener against arch-rival Kentucky.

Though it was billed throughout the offseason as a three-horse race, Froman - pictured on the cover of the 2010 media guide and front and center on the official team poster - was the guy most people thought was the clear favorite to win the job heading into fall camp. 

Often praised for his leadership abilities, Froman started seven games in his first year as Cardinal and went 2-5. He threw for 1,354 yards and six touchdowns while completing 60% of this passes.

This was the logical choice, although it does worry me a bit that it wasn't made sooner.

Although Froman will start and undoubtedly take the vast majority of snaps, I've heard for the past week or so that it has become very likely that freshman Dominique Brown will see the field at least once or twice against Kentucky. Not sure what his role would/will entail, but apparently the staff thinks he's too much of a weapon not to utilize.

Get it done, Adam.
