Teel, Olsen Ready to Start at QB

The Herald News reports that Oakland's Mike Teel and Wayne's Christian Olsen are both No. 1 on the depth chart at quarterback at their respective schools, Rutgers and Virginia.

Because Rutgers qualified for its first bowl game in nearly 30 years last season, Teel said the team expects to succeed again this year:
"The mentality that we have down there now is we won, we had some success last year and guys know what it feels like," Teel said. "That's something that you want to feel every time you go out and play, so that's the mentality we've had all off-season and it's what we're working on."

Olsen, meanwhile, hasn't started a football game in five years, and is finally getting his turn in the ACC.
"I've been waiting 23 years for this," Olsen told reporters on Sunday at the ACC Football Kickoff in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

The Star-Ledger also has a story on the Rutgers summer basketball league that is heading into the playoffs next week.
