Paul Chryst is one of the best playcallers in college football. Two-quarterback systems usually don’t work. So something’s got to give for Wisconsin now.
The Badgers coach said after a 17-9 win over Iowa that quarterbacks Alex Hornibrook and Bart Houston will continue to both see time, according to Evan Flood of Badgers247.
Sounds like #Badgers will use two quarterbacks going forward. Paul Chryst made it clear he does not care what you think about it.

Houston, a redshirt senior, began the season as the team’s starter but was replaced by Hornibrook, a redshirt freshman, in a narrow win over Georgia State on Sept. 17. Hornibrook replaced Houston for good the next week, starting against Michigan State.
Hornibrook has been pretty good as the starter, but struggled mightily against Michigan — 9 of 25 for 88 yards, 1 TD and 3 INTs. He was 11 of 19 for 197 yards against Iowa while alternating with Houston on Saturday.
Houston hadn’t played the last three weeks, but went 4 of 6 for 59 yards and a score against the Hawkeyes.
