NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

In his first career start at Tulane Glen Cuiellette threw for a 134 yards, but no touchdowns. The Wave came close to victory, losing to Wake Forest 7-3. Looking back on the tape, Cuiellette thought he looked strong, but still has so much to work on.

"The big thing with me is accuracy, even under duress. People would say I had duress on me, pressure, but I've been doing that ever since I was playing. Making throws under duress, off-balance. I just got to get better with accuracy. That will come over time with reps and seeing defenses, and timing too. I'm not going to kill myself about it, but it still something I need to work on," said Glen Cuiellette.

"He's like everybody on the team. There's some really good things he did, and somethings we need to correct. The deal with the quarterback, you're in charge of every play. For the play to get started properly we need a good snap, and the quarterback needs to know where he's going. We have to be a 100 percent on that, so every play has value. You make four or five mistakes between the center and quarterback, that's five less plays we have in the game. We can't afford to do that," said Tulane Head Coach Willie Fritz.

Coach Fritz will go with a two-quarterback system again this week. Last week it was Cuiellette and Darius Bradwell, this week Johnathan Brantley could get some work.
