    JUCO QB #1 Priority

    Richardson and Rohach aren't the answers. Nothing against them...I'm sure they're great students and teammates. Bring in a JUCO QB for the next couple of years and hope that Hodge is as good as advertised.

    This ISU team reminds me of the Chiefs last year. Poor QB play, terrible offensive coordinator, and lack of basic fundamentals destroyed their season. This can be fixed. Rhoads won't let this go on without making major changes this winter. I have total faith in him.

    Re: JUCO QB #1 Priority

    Disagree with OP, we need juco LB's and DL before we need a QB. An overhaul of the offensive play calling and coaching would help with QB play.

    The ability of this staff to evaluate QB talent has simply been laughable to this point.

    Far from a #1 priority.

    well, always great to wake up to a stupid post. You could put Joe Montana in this offense and things would still be ugly.

    I'll bet a healthy sum of money Lanning starts next season if a Juco is not brought in.

    I think you are correct. QB is by FAR the most important position on the field. I think Sam could have been a good one, but once again, we destroyed him. I'm not sure he can recover from all of this?

    But there's no reason to bring in a JUCO QB if the entire offensive scheme and coach doesn't change IMO. Otherwise, we will just ruin another QB IMO.

    But I too don't think we have enough competition in this QB group right now. We have competition, but not at a high enough level IMO.

    Re: JUCO QB #1 Priority

    No way. It starts with the QB. Most important position on the field. I think we have B12-level depth at those positions you mention, although I would take JUCO help there as well. We will not win with either Rohach or Richardson regardless of the defense, IMO.

    Re: JUCO QB #1 Priority

    The QB position has not been great but we have seen what SBR can do when he is protected. He's not been perfect but it's not all his fault. He's been running for his life most of time and/or receivers are failing to get open. I still think he can be a decent Big XII QB if the proper pieces are in place around him.

    The more laughable thing is fans continue to think just fix the QB and the offense is good. Ignoring the fact the line has been terrible (even when healthy) and the receiver group has been the biggest issue with this program for 6 years.


    But yeah, just replace the QB and it's all bunnies-n-sunshine!

    Yikes. You are right. Ok. Scratch the idea of bringing in a JUCO QB then.

    Maybe we get this Darius Lee-Campbell kid and start him as a true freshman? I'm not sure that's the answer either though.

    I guess Lanning just running the read option might be better than what we're doing now though?

    I didn't say no other changes were needed. I said attempting to find a QB who can come in and start... or at least provide competition with what we have now is the first priority. The OL will be better next year. They're young and still developing. Obviously, every position should be reviewed after this train wreck.

    All this **** is so silly. Shut up and enjoy the day. Root for ISU next week, win or lose. Next season will be better. If it isn't, then you can start to worry.

    Better line play and improved receivers - our QB position looks completely different and these simpleton posts don't exist.
