“We don’t know what we’re getting,” Hunt said. For Hunt, the redshirt sophomore, and Allen, the graduate transfer from Oklahoma, it leaves them in a unique position. On Monday, ESPN reported that the Orange is one of four teams that is not expected to name a starting quarterback until the day of its first game. When Syracuse arrives at MetLife Stadium on Aug. 31 to face Penn State its quarterback will be a mystery to all outside the program. Scott Shafer doesn’t plan on revealing his starter until that day. “I wouldn’t care if it was Saturday morning or today because you work so hard and you prepare like you’re the starter no matter what position you are,” Hunt said. “If you’re second string, first string, you just prepare and when your time comes, you’re ready.” So why let Penn State know what Syracuse has to show? — That’s Shafer’s thinking. Shafer said on Monday that there is a bit of separation, but even when he and the coaching staff reach a verdict, he won’t make it public. He wouldn’t even say when he hopes to have that decision made. Allen and Hunt will likely know before that Saturday, but neither quarterback was concerned about when he’d find out. “Why give anybody an advantage?” Shafer said, pounding his fist on the podium. “To me I just wouldn’t understand it. It’s just me. If it gives them one more practice to play against something they think one kid can do compared to the other, why give them that advantage?” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Every practice makes a difference, so Shafer will hold tight to as much information as he can for as long as he can. “I approached every day as if I was a starter,” Allen said. “I prepared every day in the film room and I prepared every day on the practice field in order to be ready because there could’ve been an injury, a sudden change of plans. Somehow I needed to be ready.” PSU was not reported as one of the teams that will wait until opening day to make a decision, but it’s hosting a tight quarterback competition, too. Allen spent four years with the Oklahoma Sooners learning how to handle a situation like this. He was likely never going to pass Sam Bradford or Landry Jones for the starting job, but he was always there in case something happened. The quarterback competition, which is down to Drew Allen and Terrel Hunt, has run neck-and-neck through the entirety of training camp with both signal callers splitting reps with the first team almost completely evenly.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text While a potentially frustrating position for the quarterbacks, it is one that makes sense: There’s no need to give the Nittany Lions an extra advantage. “We don’t have to play until the 31st, so the final decision won’t truly be made until we step on that field,” the head coach said. Of course, at OU he was an injury away. At SU it’s a 50-50 competition.

West Ham striker Andy Carroll is facing up to six weeks on the sidelines, Hammers boss Sam Allardyce has revealed.The 26-year-old suffered a knee injury during the midweek draw with Southampton and scans have since shown he suffered a medial ligament tear.It is the latest setback in the career of the former Newcastle and Liverpool hitman.Carroll has been beset by injury problems since moving to Upton Park for a club record £15million fee in June 2013 after a year-long loan spell. A serious heel injury meant he made just 16 appearances for the Hammers last season, while he missed the first four months of this campaign with ankle trouble.Allarydce is yet to discover the full extent of the latest problem, but expects the giant hitman to be sidelined for at least a month.“I think a full diagnosis is yet to come, it will probably be by the end of the day,” he said.“It is likely to be a few weeks, the medial ligament on the side of his knee has a tear in it from a fairly innocuous collision.“Hopefully (he will only miss) four to six weeks if we are lucky, depending on Andy’s recovery rate. It is a big blow for his and a big blow for us but it is one we have to cope with.“It is traumatic when someone is going through a period when in a short time they overcome one injury and another occurs.”Whilst Carroll will be missing for the FA Cup fifth-round clash at West Brom on Saturday, Allardyce will welcome Mark Noble and captain Kevin Nolan back into his squad for the fixture at the Hawthorns. 1 Andy Carroll
