    I stand corrected

    I was wrong. Once JT went in, it eliminated
    1. penalties
    2. KOs penalties in the red zone
    3. poor throws
    4. poor OL play
    5. misreads by the RBs
    6. poor downfield blocks
    7. no separation
    The offense looked great last night once AA went down. WE were able to throw the ball all over the FCS's 79th ranked (after last night before that they were ranked 106th) passing defense

    On a good note, I don't remember a drop last night

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: I stand corrected

    Of those, JT could be responsible for #3. To day he didn't have bad throws is a little much. He was 11 of 22 after all. He can't control mental mistakes of others and I highly doubt the OL blocks better depending on who's behind center.

    I'll support JT when he's playing, but to think that he's the answer to our questions is a little much.

    Everybody is in love w/ JT right now. People tend to look at last night and remember Nebraska last year. Nobody mentions the week after Nebraska. Let's say that he plays next week. Who's to say that he's going to be successful against TT? Then what?

    Re: I stand corrected

    Tiller didn't turn the ball over, but that was about the only positive. Time after time, he missed wide open receivers (Darks and Sed looked frustrated). I would say more than a couple of his completions were still bad throws where the receiver had to adjust to catch it, then got tackled immediately thereafter because of it. I realize being a QB for a BCS team is a tough task, but we really need someone to fill that role.

    Our defense outscored our offense.

    I noticed that as well. Their body language just showed that they were upset.

    Was it Whitver that said JT knows what receiver he's thowing it to right away. If he's covered then he just takes off running? That seems to be about right. I'm not sure how much he's working through the progressions.

    Good call. I didn't mention that because we had no INTs against KSU though. I remeber TIller fumbling when hit from behind lat night but he fell on it but I could be wrong

    If your responding to me...note the JIMLAD sarcasm pirate. Our QB is not the only thing wrong with our offense. There are many other things

    I'm positive that those weren't there when I originally posted.

    I believe the original poster was being sarcastic (thus the profuse use of Jimlad). They were pointing out that many fans think that all of the offensive woes are/were the fault of Arnaud and would magically disappear with the insertion of Tiller at QB. Last night illustrated that, while Arnaud does have issues, Tiller isn't the cure-all many were thinking/hoping he would be.
