Ball State head coach Stan Parrish does not know whether he will field Kelly Page or true freshman Keith Wenning at quarterback when the Cardinals take on Purdue this weekend. Page was pulled out of the game last week against Liberty, and Wenning played really well in his place.
Last year Kelly Page was statistically nightmarish for the Ball State Cardinals, but according to head coach Stan Parrish, "He's much, much improved in directing our team. He's a lot more confident and a better player now. I'm really pleased with the way he's played so far."

True freshman quarterback for the Ball State Cardinals, Kelly Page, struggled once more today in taking on the Army Black Knights on the road, finishing the 24-17 loss 12 of 24 passing for 154 yards, a touchdown, and three interceptions.
"Kelly Page has earned the right to be our No. 1 quarterback heading into fall camp," new head coach Stan Parrish said as Ball State completed spring workouts on Saturday.
Ball State head coach Stan Parrish says Kelly Page will head into spring practice as the heir apparent to Nate Davis. "I repped him like he was the second all year even though I redshirted him. And then to get the bowl practice... He's got an awful lot of talent, and going into spring I'd say Page is the front-runner for the job," Parrish told ESPN.com.
