The jsonline guy said that Stave was on the sideline throwing hard yesterday. First do people believe it and second, if it is true and if he is ready, does he start the Rose Bowl?
Azanni has also mentioned that his WR group has talked about how great Bart Houston is throwing in practice as well. Look, there is NO way Barry will bench Curt Phillips for Stave. Stave's last game was Mich. St and that was his 2nd test of the year counting the Nebraska game. With the aggressive style that Stanford plays (blitzing) it would be a nightmare situation for him. Everyone keeps talking about the deep ball threat that Stave brings but people seem to forget he wasn't that great with short-medium throws. Curt seems to have brought some leadership to the huddle and has the utmost respect from the players in the locker room.
Next year will be interesting if Curt gets granted his 6th year and you have Stave coming back and Bart Houston......Wisconsin will have a QB controversy and it will be a positive one.....holy hell did i just say that???
I tend to agree agree. Phillips has improved enough in the leadership category that I can't see him benched. I can't see Stave being totally healed either. Phillip's been decent passing (lately) and is pretty clutch. Hope Houston's the future next year...

Broblak, yes you did put that down and now its in writing. I don't know if UW will get a QB this year, but if they can hold on to Stewart, I like UW chances of having a QB that at worst be above average for years to come.
For Stave to play for me, he has to be 100% healthy. I think it will come down to which one will be better in practice and the one that the team rallies around.
Correct me if I am wrong. Wasn't the injury to his non-throwing arm??
It was his left collarbone. Throwing hard would mean that he was going through the whole throwing motion (lead arm, rotating upper body, etc) which I imagine would be painful if the collarbone wasn't in good shape.
As someone who has broken both collarbones, I can tell you that although it is mostly a pain management thing, your mechanically not right for a while. Your shoulder just rotates differently for a while until your muscles balance out again.
It's easy to control when you're concentrating on it i.e. 'make a straight through, smooth and follow through, etc' but in the heat of the moment being chased by a LB, not thinking directly about it means your mechanics are just a smidge off, and that's all it takes to get picked off.
