    Arnaud to start?

    When will Arnaud be moved into a starting role?

    Re: Arnaud to start?

    hopefully soon. if ISU is going to continue to loose, at least get the freshman as much experience as possible. I would like to see Bates play too, make this season as a trial for the starting job for the 08 season. I think a lot of frustrations would go away if we knew that GC was playing a freshman QB.

    Why not? It might be unfair to Bret's legacy as a "hall of famer" at ISU but Bret is no longer qualified to run this offense. I don't see how someone can study the game daily and get worse but he has. I think you start Arnaud and get a year under his belt. Why waste a year of his elgibility sitting on the bench watching Meyer throw interceptions?

    Don't forget that Bates is using a year of eligibility up too. Make it a competition for the starting job. Don't hand the job to Arnaud, make him beat out Bates. The looser plays Safety or WR.

    I think Bret will start the Iowa game, but Arnaud will see considerable playing time, then he will start against Toledo.

    Re: Arnaud to start?

    Brett might just have to become a victim of change. It is unfortunate, but Brett wasn't brought here to play in Chizik's scheme. Then again neither was Arnaud, but there is more time to mold him then Meyer.

    I know nothing of Bates' abililty but my choice would be Arnaud at this point and put Bates at another position. If Arnaud isn't working out, either go back to Bret to finish the season or switch Bates back to QB. This thing can be very fluid. I think this season is great for experimenting with positions. We have nothing more to lose at this point. You might as well do some "what ifs" with the players.

    You either have to start him now, or let Meyer start until after the gauntlet of death comes.

    I don't think we see him starting until after the TX/OU games. He'd probably get his head taken off over the next stretch of 7 games.

    Yeah, Hall of Famer, he holds every major passing record for ISU.

    Well, are we playing for Hall of Fame pride or for ISU future. We need to get these young players more experience so that we won't have that to whine about next year.
    Sorry seniors , but the future is not with you, Any of you.
