Coan suffered a non-contact foot injury in practice, and Graham Mertz is now the starting quarterback of the Badgers.

This is great news for Jack, and we’re all hoping like hell he’s able to get healthy as soon as possible.
Yet, life has a funny way of working out sometimes.
Now, it’s the Graham Mertz show until further notice as Coan heals up. It doesn’t sound like anyone has any idea when he’ll be back.
Obviously, we’re going to have an immediate QB controversy if Coan returns in the middle of the season. If the Badgers are undefeated would Chryst dare pull Mertz for Coan?
I have no idea, but people will be talking. Welcome to the world of college football! Embrace the chaos.
Get better, Jack. We can figure out the rest after that’s done.
