    QB's: Arnaud hurt, Bates doesn't know plays..

    Who are you going to play? Chizik said today that Arnaud can't scramble. Do you put him in against either Texas or Oklahoma? And Bates just started this year and doesn't know the system. When he's in it's a reduced playbook. He'll know it by next year. So the question is, who do you play? Meyer is our guy. Might as well cheer him on, he's out there giving it his all. And Meyer is a classy guy who is a good representative for Iowa State.

    Arnaud can't scramble? He said that?

    I think he meant because of the injury.

    Re: QB's: Arnaud hurt, Bates doesn't know plays..

    It's true that Arnaud is limited right now and it would probably cause issues against Oklahoma. Bates is having a harder time with the system since he hasn't been as focused on just the QB position. I understand the predicament we're in and agree that Meyer will probably have to handle most of the plays. I do think we'll see AA and PB playing some quality minutes though.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    I agree, but I see the logic on not putting Arnaud in to get killed against Texas and probably Oklahoma. There is still time to get him reps this season when his ankle is 100%. And Bates has to feel a bit overwhelmed with everything. BUT,he did help win the Iowa game. I want to see them both play, but not at the risk of their future.

    Wow, we go from 3 qb's ready to fight it out to 0 qualified to run the team with only 1 injury. That can only happen at ISU.

    Chizik said the ankle injury is limiting what he can do. I would assume than means his ability to scramble or move in the pocket. Makes sense to me.

    Man this is tough. I wish we had a group of people set aside to work these problems out for us so we didn't miss sleep over it. Just kidding guys. Looks like Meyer has some more time.

    i say throw Bates in there, what do we have to lose? he wants to play and he has the mentality to take on the task... Arnaud told me before the texas game that he was good to go, he only wore the boot for a day but the coaches must be concerned about re injury.

    What about Bass? Did he lose his job, or is his playing time due to his injury?

    Re: QB's: Arnaud hurt, Bates doesn't know plays..

    If this game gets ugly...fans will want Arnaud. I'll back Chizik with whatever he does, but if Arnaud can't play because of this injury and 90% of the fans there won't know about it and it'll get even uglier. I hope it doesn't get to that point and Bret can find a grove and give us a chance. But if not, gotta throw Bates out there.



    And yeah J.J. is still hurt.

    Maybe we need to go back to 1/3 sections for Meyer ;) JJ is having a couple of nagging injuries right now... I wish him a speedy recovery

    Chizik basically said Bates doesn't know many plays yet, and Bass is still hurt. It could get real ugly fast for Bates. He's too good of a talent to get hurt. I see him as a Reggie Bush type talent.
