07:20 PM ET 10.19 | According to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, "all signs" are "pointing to" true freshman point guard Ryan Arcidiacono starting this season after missing his senior year at Neshaminy due to surgery to remove a herniated fragment in his back. It's risky for 'Nova to start a player at the point with so little experience, especially in a conference that demands steady play. But Arcidiacono is one of those rare talents, and he is one of those even rarer point guards who plays like a more experienced player than his age shows.

You can get away with starting a freshman PG now because CFB is so watered-down. There are no experienced teams to speak of. It's advanced high school ball that's all.
