    Re: Why SR has to be able to run vs. Tulsa, or a change could be made

    I still don't get why the coaching staff didn't either play Rohach or call a lot less zone reads vs. Iowa. It's one thing to try to establish an identity, but a team can't run options when the QB has a bad ankle, just like an air raid offense would have to adjust if the QB couldn't throw.

    Any Offense that runs an Offense that is based in a large part by a Running QB should have a backup that gets snaps every game. No running QB makes it through a year entirely healthy.

    I hope so. Because a non-running SR is a bad deal

    I agree. It's strange to say all of that after you just tried doing what you said wouldn't work last game knowing it wouldn't work

    Re: Why SR has to be able to run vs. Tulsa, or a change could be made

    It would be interesting to see what would happen if Rohach is put in against a bad Tulsa Defense and hangs 50 pts (similar to SRQB hanging 50 on a bad KU team).

    Re: Why SR has to be able to run vs. Tulsa, or a change could be made

    Rohach is the better QB--he was recruited by Tom Herman.....Messingham recruited Richardson......that is why Richardson is playing.....end of story----if you want the best chance to win games...you play Rohach--end of story. A decision on this change needs to be made soon.

    “It is a lingering type of ankle injury that may bother him throughout the course of the season,” Rhoads said.

    Don't like to hear that! I feel bad for Sam, he just can't stay healthy (flu, ankle, groin).

    Re: Why SR has to be able to run vs. Tulsa, or a change could be made

    I'll never understand why they are so out in the open on injury information. Are all college programs this way?? Now we read that Sam had a groin injury as well. I'm not knocking you for writing it Chris since they told you but I would think they would want keep injury info from the opponents.

    it's double secret reverse psychology. I think we have the upper hand here.

    I really don't think that makes a difference.

    No kidding. They need lessons from Bill Snyder regarding injury reports.
