    Sounds like they have three guys, one of whom is a former Elite 11 invite who transferred from Wyoming. Frankly if they have anyone better than JB then they are really good for 1-AA, IMO. His accuracy probably won't be any better but he is a gifted runner, gifted leader, and has a gifted mind that should stand out at that level, especially if they run any form of an option offense.

    Sam no doubt, JB transfered because he knew it. Jantz had his chance

    All I know is it really scares me that we are starting a QB that was behind both JB and SJ until Steele got KOd in the KU game.

    I was hoping we'd have someone talented enough to clearly beat them out, even as a RS Fresh. IM still not sure we have one of the top 12 QBs in the Big 12 on our roster yet.

    Hopefully it's clearly obvious that Sam is going to be an amazing QB for us once the season starts.

    Re: Would Steele Jantz start this year if he had eligibility left?

    Even if Steele did win the starting job this year, which I don't think he would, he would pee it down his leg a few games in and become wildly inconsistent again.

    Steele had talent but could never harness it for an extended period. He would make an amazing pass and then blow a hand off or scramble wildly and lose 10 yards, followed by a pick.

    JB tried really effing hard but never had the pure talent. If he was on, he could lead the team to victory. But if he was off, he didn't have the pure passing talent to overcome many mistakes. Look at the KSU game. If we have any kind of consistency at QB would could have beaten a TOUGH KSU team.

    SR has some pure talent and also has shown some consistency. Time will tell if he can do it over a full season. I think he will be better at making the core plays than either SJ or JB were which means he wont have to make a spectacular play like Steele could at times. I think if he can be that guy all season we will see him also develop his playmaking side. Do the basic things great and then expand and push the envelope.

    Steele could do some of the spectacular and exciting plays but he never did the basic things well and that cost us.
    JB could do some of the basics well but not consistently enough and he struggled when we needed him to step up and do more.

    Lets just hope Richardson doesn't catch the flu this year, otherwise we can cross that game off our schedule.
