    Richardson Should Be QB

    With all the trouble throwing a QB battle into the mix doesn't seem like the answer. It's the wrong focal point and it bothers me. Sam Richardson has proven that he has the talent. Benching him won't save the season and wastes experience building opportunity. Unless we land some incredible JUCO QB you know he will be QB next year. Unless he is taking a break to get healthy, which doesn't seem like the case, I think they should stick with Richardson.

    Re: Richardson Should Be QB

    I agree that Richardson is most likely the answer, but if he is not healthy we should not be throwing him out there.

    Re: Richardson Should Be QB

    I'll bite. How has he proven that he has the talent?

    He just might, but how is it proven?

    2013 Big 12 College Football Individual Statistics Leaders for Passing - ESPN

    6th in total yards and tied for 3rd in TD's while being sacked 2-3 times more than any other QB in league play. All of this playing hurt. Everyone has their own definition of talent but I think he does have some.

    Re: Richardson Should Be QB

    Why, is he not playing QB anymore?!?

    Maybe he will move to the O-line ... I hear we are pretty weak there ...

    While I do agree there is more talent than some acknowledge, those stats need to be analyzed a little more. 6th in total yards while 2nd in attempts. At the bottom for yards/attempt and completion percentage. I feel he could be 4-5 in rating in the conference (8th now) with a consistent line and without the injury. Being able to say that our QB could be 4-5 in the conference as a sophomore is good in my book.

    Re: Richardson Should Be QB

    I like Sam except for his 3rd down decision making. Takes off and runs too much in situations he has no chance to pick up the yardage and seems too willing to take sacks instead of trying to make a play. I understand you want to take care of the ball and avoid turnovers but you also need to make plays. Hard to judge him too harshly given our O-Line injuries but he's got plenty of room for improvement. Truth is, he probably shouldn't be starting right now as a RS Sophomore but after recruiting misses at the position he's the best we've got.

    Not sure he's the problem or solution @ QB.

    Given this team, he is far from the biggest problem that we have. I like Sam and I think that, if he gets healthy and continues to develop, he can make a solid starter for us in 2014 and 2015.

    I think he showed much better decision making earlier in the season.
