At media days, star quarterbacks can be hard to find

The quarterback is usually the face of a football team. During conference media days, those faces are often difficult to find.

No Christian Hackenberg for Penn State. No Deshaun Watson for Clemson. No Anu Solomon for Arizona. Neither Cardale Jones nor J.T. Barrett for Ohio State.

Cautious coaches tend to lean toward rewarding upperclassmen with a trip to media day — even if that means leaving the quarterback behind. Part of the reason is that experienced seniors can be relied upon to stay on message.
