Colorado Football 2012: Nick Hirschman Plans To Stick With Buffs

Despite being told that he will not be the starting quarterback of the Colorado Buffaloes for the 2012 season, sophomore Nick Hirschman told BuffZone.com that he has no plans to transfer and instead plans on continuing to compete for the job that now belongs to Jordan Webb.

"I'm not really thinking about (leaving)," he said. "I'm in camp right now competing. That thought hasn't even crossed my mind."

Webb, the former starting quarterback of the Kansas Jayhawks, has two years of eligibility remaining following his transfer to Colorado, while Hirschman and the third quarterback in the mix, Connor Wood, each have three years left.

Buffaloes offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy still expects Hirschman to compete for playing time, telling BuffZone.com that the battle for time will continue.

"That's not his MO," Bieniemy said when asked if he thought Hirschman might transfer. "Nick is a true and true Buff. One thing about Nick, he's a competitor. I love his personality; I love the spirit about the kid. Although he's not the starter, Nick is going to continue to work his tail off to find a way to get himself on the field."
