    Re: Richardson still ready but Rohach is waiting in the wings

    Happy to hear that Rohach has been practicing better. We really need a healthy Sam. It might be better to sit him a game to let him recover. Not sure Baylor is a game you want to do that though. Guess it should depend on how Sam is doing.

    Re: Richardson still ready but Rohach is waiting in the wings

    Let me guess--Rohach comes in to start, schools Baylor all afternoon in a surprising upset, and the fanbase gets REALLY excited about a QB that played well against a team that hadn't prepped at all for him.

    Then ISU wins once the rest of the year.

    Re: Richardson still ready but Rohach is waiting in the wings

    Serious question, what happens if Rohach comes in and lights it up like Sam did against Kansas. Are we back to square 1 with a QB competition for the next 3 years, bring Sam back the following week and leave Rohach on the sideline, or give Rohach Sam's starting job?

    Re: Richardson still ready but Rohach is waiting in the wings

    Four qb injury issues:
    1. Ankle
    2. Throwing thumb
    3. Groin pull
    4. ??? (Playbook/Playcalling)


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Richardson/KU Defense vs Rohach/Baylor Defense...Not sure there's really an advantage of one over the other.

    I don't see any downside to sitting Sam in a game we won't win anyway.

    Re: Richardson still ready but Rohach is waiting in the wings

    It doesn't sounds like Rhoads is too keen on playing Rohach yet. Maybe it's just me, but it sounds like he'd rather play a half beaten up SR..Hopefully Rohach isn't complete garbage because his time will come if Sam doesn't stay injury free.

    The job would still be Sam's. Every other team in the country can handle having a competent backup once in a while. So can we. Sam is hurt, not getting pulled.

    The fact that they won't be prepped for Rohach shouldn't really matter. He's not really a different QB than Richardson and we run the same offense with both of them.

    I agree and if we were to win, it's not going to be because of the offense exploding with a QB who can't hardly walk in the second half.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Well, we really don't know what he's like compared to Sam other than coach speak.

    And the Nike ELITE camp Rohach got invited to. (Sam didn't).
    And the fact that Rohach threw for over 3,000 yards his senior year...

    With Sam hurt, time to use this the rest of this season as a live practice environment. It sucks, but better not waste this opportunity if we want to excel next year.

    Re: Richardson still ready but Rohach is waiting in the wings

    As far as breaking in new qbs:
    Bill Snyder also rode his horse Colin the qb last year. Now it has taken Waters and Sams some time to get up to speed probably just in time for us.

    Stick with Sam unless he just can't go.
