SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis has decided on a starting quarterback, he's just not telling anyone who it is - including the player he's picked.
Weis has said repeatedly since the team began practicing this month he would not announce whether Evan Sharpley, Demetrius Jones or Jimmy Clausen would start at quarterback until it was time to take the field Sept. 1 for the opener against Georgia Tech.
Thursday night following practice, Weis said for the first time he had made his choice.
``I'm absolutely sure who the starting quarterback is,'' he said.
Weis became agitated when asked further about his choice.
``Do you think I'm going to be so fickle that I won't know who the quarterback is going to be?'' he asked.
Pressed further, Weis said he has known for a week or two who would start. But he said he still hasn't told the player.
``I'm not positive if he knows. Because if I told him, then he'd have to lie to you if you asked him the question,'' Weis said.
Although Weis knows the starter, all three are continuing to work with the first team offense. Weis said he hasn't told the team who will start, but he thinks they know.
``I think if they haven't figured it out by now then they're not very smart,'' Weis said.
