Doman, of course, was on the bench his first couple of seasons with the Cougars before getting his opportunity to start at quarterback the last two games of his junior year. As a senior, he started every game and helped the Cougars to a 12-2 record in 2001, passing for 33 touchdowns and 3,542 yards.
“I have never been benched,” Doman said. “Heaps feels like he’s been benched. I have certainly been a backup before, and I certainly had to overcome some of those adversities. I know if you don’t prepare for [adversity] then you are going to have some hard times.”
