For the time being. The latest Utah depth chart — in something of a surprise, given Kyle Whittingham’s comment Saturday that his starting quarterback would likely remain a secret — shows Wilson’s name in bold atop that of junior Kendal Thompson. “I just wanted less questions for me during the week,” Whittingham explained at Monday’s news conference. “I kind of played that strategy game last week by not announcing, but we figured that this...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

So what, then, are we supposed to call this? Against UCLA, Travis Wilson started, stalled and stepped aside for Kendal Thompson. Against Oregon State, the roles were reversed, with Wilson retaking the reins at halftime.
