    Why Barnet is the better option

    Each qb won 3 games last year, Barnet won games against big 12 teams and jantz well it takes miracles to win games with him. Jantz didn't even show up to the press conference last night he just left after the game and that makes me mad. Our only offense is the zone read, and Barnet runs it well. Barnet had a fumble problem last year but he's clearly a better leader and players responded to him better, it was obvious. The O-line didn't play well but my god, jantz threw a floater straight into the TT secondary with no cyclone within 10 yards, that's not on the o-line that's a terrible qb at work. Barnet beat two ranked teams as starter, I'm pretty sure jantz would throw 2 interceptions in a high school game. At this point if our only offense is the zone read, let Barnet run it

    Because he's not Jantz.

    Re: Why Barnet is the better option

    *Barnett is not a better option.

    If he was there wouldn't be any reason why he's splitting time now with the 2's now with Richardson if he was still a better option.

    Jantz was not made available to the media last night, and that was CPR's call, and probably a good one. JB may be the better option, but ISU's play calling, offensive line, and receivers did absolutely NOTHING to help Jantz last night. I'm not convinced JB would of had more success then Jantz did last night.

    I think this is not necessarily true. SJ is CPR's man. He seems to want to make him be successful even if at his own peril. JB has at least won B12 games; SJ has not and will not.

    This over and over again. Jantz wasn't exactly put into a situation to succeed last night. Barnett wouldn't have been successful last night either.

    Who started the rumor about Richardson and Barnett splitting reps?

    Re: Why Barnet is the better option

    Richardson is the better option. Hodge and Lanning are going to be better QB's than Barnett, so it's up to Richardson to see what he can do. Barnett is great on his feet, but no one can trust him throwing the ball.

    SJ does seem to be CPR's man. I'm worried he's not objective when it comes to SJ's performance.

    Re: Why Barnet is the better option

    Steele is the best QB ISU has. If he wasn't, he wouldn't be starting. So as bad as you all think he is, he is still not as bad as Jared Barnett.

    Perhaps, but it's hard to imagine the O performing any worse with Barnett at the helm. Something new needs to be tried...

    Or just holding onto it in general. That fumble was atrocious.

    if this is true, this is really disturbing. Not what our QB should do after any game no matter how ****** he played.
