Coach Jim Fenwick wasn't quite sure Monday how long injured senior quarterback Aaron Flowers, also known as the Northridge franchise, will be sidelined. But Fenwick is already in Plan B mode. "We have to ask somebody else to start carrying the flag," Fenwick said. That someone will be strong-arm sophomore Josh Fiske, Flowers' inexperienced but, Fenwick said, very capable understudy. "We won't change anything," Fenwick said.

After the last full practice before his first big start, Cal State Northridge quarterback Josh Fiske strolled off the field, personifying what he calls the three Cs: Calm, cool and collected. That's how Jeff Rio, Fiske's former youth league and high school coach, used to tell Fiske to behave during games. "He was always an inspiration to me," Fiske said of Rio, who died in a car accident last year. "I say a little prayer to him before every game. I know he'll be looking over me."

The season within the football season, the segment that counts the most, is about to start for Cal State Northridge. After balancing the books in four nonconference games, the Matadors (2-2) head for their Big Sky Conference opener at Portland State (0-4, 0-2 in the conference) on Saturday night short on proven quarterbacks and perhaps a bit rusty after an open week. "It's kind of hard sitting out a week," Coach Jim Fenwick said. "We just need to really go after Portland State."

Before Josh Fiske started for Cal State Northridge on Saturday night against Portland State, the last sophomore to start at quarterback for the Matadors was Derek Brown in the third game of the 1995 season, a 68-7 loss at Northern Arizona. Brown now plays at Cal Lutheran. Until Saturday, Northridge was 0-7 against Portland State at Civic Stadium dating to 1979. The Matadors hold a 6-3 edge at Northridge.

Jim Fenwick, Cal State Northridge's first-year football coach, is at wits end with the Matadors' showing on defense. "Right now, I'm pretty fed up with the [way opponents] run against us," Fenwick said. "We are not playing with the passion that I like defensively." The Matadors (2-3, 0-1 in Big Sky Conference play), who gave up 250 yards rushing to Portland State redshirt freshman Charles Dunn on Saturday, are allowing 210.8 yards per game on the ground, worst in the conference.

Although Coach Jim Fenwick said Monday that he won't know for sure until later this week, senior quarterback Aaron Flowers is expected to start Saturday for Cal State Northridge against Cal State Sacramento in a Big Sky Conference football game at North Campus Stadium. Flowers missed the past three games with a fractured right leg and was replaced by sophomore Josh Fiske, who sprained the small finger of his left hand on Saturday at Montana State but finished the game.

Quarterback Aaron Flowers had X-rays taken of his lower right leg Wednesday and said he hopes to return on Oct. 18 for Cal State Northridge's game at Montana State. "It's coming back together nicely," Flowers said of the hairline fracture of his right fibula. "As soon as I can run I can play." Flowers suffered the injury in the first half of Northridge's 63-21 victory over Azusa Pacific on Saturday night but played into the third quarter. He wore an air cast and walked on crutches at practice.

When Cal State Northridge quarterback Aaron Flowers fractured his right fibula playing against Azusa Pacific on Sept. 20, the target date for his return was Oct. 25 against Cal State Sacramento. But the Matadors (3-3, 1-1 in Big Sky Conference play) visit Montana State (3-2, 2-1) for a crucial game Saturday, raising the question of whether Flowers could be ready to play ahead of schedule. Flowers won't know until Wednesday, when he visits an orthopedist.

The first of two games this season against a Division I-A opponent has Cal State Northridge up and running during practice. The Matadors closed their workout Wednesday with about 10 wind sprints and a few players could be seen doubling over. Practice closed with a chant of "Beat Kansas!" The Matadors play at Kansas on Saturday. "I think we're going to win," said Jeff Kearin, Northridge interim coach. Kearin didn't say it with a straight face.
