    My Philosophy on QB Start

    I am a high school football coach who understands the mental side of making athletes great. I honestly believe that the coaching staff knew all along that Tiller was not going to be eligible for this season. Honestly do you think the coaches were all of a sudden shocked that this happened. No, it was a build up of bad grades and they saw it coming all along. So with this said, I think they kept it from the team, so that Tiller could push Jantz all summer long. Making Jantz "earn" the position the way any coach would want a leader to have to do. Competition for a position is absolutely ideal, and on the other hand walking right into a starting spot is weak. College programs these days have academic advisors, fulltime salary positions on staff that are in place to foster the success of their athletes, there is no way this was unforeseen by the coaching staff, and I am now very excited to know we have a starting Qb named, and excited to know he has been fully prepared to take on the role.

    I agree, Herman said he'd had many man to man conversations with Tiller, so that says to me that stuff was not going well for him. Jantz earned the position the right way by hard work, and apparently winning over his teammates at the same time. Looking forward to his first start in 2 weeks.

    I can't see bringing a juco all the way from Cali without thinking probable starter under any scenario.

    Re: My Philosophy on QB Start

    I don't know if they knew that Tiller was going to tank his grades over the summer when they brought Steele in this winter. But, if you are saying that the signs were there that this was possible, then I see your point.

    Excellent point of view and if correct I am glad we were all not aware of Tillers academic problems. If it created a sense of urgency for Jantz to study the playbook more intensely and spend extra time in the Bergstrom indoor facility then Steele and the rest of us will all benefit.

    Re: My Philosophy on QB Start

    I don't agree with your analysis. They would have done everything they can to keep JT eligible for this season, and while they knew he was having problems, did not know until the final grades came out. Your story sounds good, but I don't believe it happened that way.

    Re: My Philosophy on QB Start

    That would just be stupid if that's the case, they would be wasting valuable snaps with the first team in practice by letting tiller practice with the first team, as much as they did. No way...

    Re: My Philosophy on QB Start

    However the coaches did it, it worked out right. In the spring game Jantz showed he's got the tools. Yesterday he showed he can be a complete qb and a leader. He can make something good out of something bad with his feet or his arm, and he is going to be exciting to watch. I also heard the qb race really hasn't been close the last couple of weeks, and that's not to take anything away from Barnett and Tiller. Jantz just showed he's the man yesterday.
