    But whoever the coaching staff chooses, I will support 110%. Not having an offensive coordinator named Messingham should help as well. Although after the first bubble screen of the season, I will be calling for Mangino's head.
    Hope you left your jimlad at home, because Mangino does this a lot IIRC

    You mean, like that guy named Manning did Sunday?

    Re: Who's YOUR starting QB?

    I've heard a million times that Rhoads keeps his hands off the offense, and the majority of ridiculous QB carouseling has gone on since Herman left (Jantz was legitimately injured when Barnett took over for him in '11). I'm 95% sure those were Mess's calls.

    I'm picking Richardson to be the guy. He's been the better of the two when healthy, and he reminds me of Todd Reesing in a lot of ways.

    I don't really care either way though, as Rohach developed quite a bit last year and was looking sharp in the last few games. I think either guy will do just fine given some time to throw.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Do they have any eligibility left? If not, maybe Paul Blake is available. We could bring on Ed Gennero as an offensive consultant.

    Re: Who's YOUR starting QB?

    I don't think it is coincidence that Rohach suddenly looked like a Big XII QB once we played the two worst pass defenses in the league.

    That said, I don't think there's much separation between him and Richardson. I'd be fine with either.

    NOT Lanning or Hodge unless there is CLEAR separation, which I sincerely doubt.

    Re: Who's YOUR starting QB?

    1A) QBSR
    1B) Rohach

    I don't think anyone got a fair shake under Messingham, just a steady stream of people getting mind****ed. I am actually comfortable with either guy (or whoever is behind them) as I think Mangino is intelligent enough to teach them the things they need to be taught and put them in a position to succeed. Easy to say, hard to do, but he's proven he can do it with guys like Todd Reesing, so I'm not at all concerned about the QB spot. I think there is plenty of talented options there for someone smart to do with as they see fit. Mangino is that man.

    Sorry, I should have included the jimlad.

    That Kerry Meier guy for Kansas must have caught 50 of these from Todd Reesing the year they went to the Orange Bowl.

    I'm leaning towards "footsteps" Falco. I don't think Utah's knee is completely healed.

    Re: Who's YOUR starting QB?

    I dont see why everyone is still so high on Richardson. Go watch the West Virginia game replay where Rohach led us to the OT win. He threw for over 300 yards in the Kansas and WV games, (true they didnt have the best defenses in the Big 12, but I definitely wouldnt say that throwing over 300 yards in back to back games isnt impressive). He has shown steady improvement, Richardson has shown the complete opposite. Lanning completely controlled the scout team this year from what Ive heard and read, but so did Rohach the year before (scout team player of the year). It will be an interesting spring and fall camp, but I say the final competition comes down to Rohach/Lanning. Either way, excited to see how all the QB's develop under Mangino. Will be an exciting season for sure with all the new hires

    Re: Who's YOUR starting QB?

    It's worth pointing out that basing how anybody did with coach Mess calling the shots isn't really fair. Unfortunately, that is all we have to base our opinions on.

    Re: Who's YOUR starting QB?

    I wouldn't count anyone out. With new OC and QB coach each will get a shot. My guess is a healthy Sam Richardson, but would not be at all surprised if Lanning or Rohach got the call.

    Re: Who's YOUR starting QB?

    I like Sam, and think he was/could be a good QB with good playcalling and health.

    But I really like the thought of Rohach with some Mangino coaching. Kinda like the McDermott Diante Garrett vs the Fred DG

    Steamin' Willie Beaman, but I still have a soft spot for Cap Rooney, who is very SBR-esque in his ability to play through the pain.
