  Whittingham got out in front of the elephant in the room, Bentley, long perceived as the eventual starter for the Nov. 7 opener, being voted a captain. "The first thing I'll say is don't read anything into Jake Bentley being a captain as far as winning the job," Whittingham said. "That's just what his peers think of him. Don't get me wrong, that's a positive thing, but that does not factor into our decision as far as who's going to be the guy." In Whittingham's defense, a quarterback being named a captain does not always indicate who the starter will be. Utah's recent history at the position is proof.

In 2016, Troy Williams was a captain. He started all 13 games at quarterback for Utah, throwing for 2,757 yards and 15 touchdowns as part of a 9-4 season. Late in training camp ahead of the 2017 season, Williams was again voted as a captain. Days later, sophomore Tyler Huntley was named the starting quarterback. Huntley went on to win 23 games as a starter, was named All-Pac-12 first team as a senior in 2019, and is currently on the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. Even if Bentley's captaincy is not a sure sign of who the starting quarterback will be, it is a clear sign of how much progress he has made in a short time. - Salt Lake Tribune
