    It is a fair fight but to compare the two seasons last year is invalid.

    This is a glass half full year at QB. Both are better than Barnette and Jantz.
    Due to the offense chosen to run and the continual collapse of the oline, SR was forced to run more times than not. It was started in the UNI game and other opponents copied. Then we went to Grant and protected him as he did not really have a backup. The offense seemed to change from warm weather to cold weather.

    Re: Column: Don't sleep on Sam

    What seals the deal for me is that Sam and D'Vario Montgomery were high school teammates. Sam has already proven to have good chemistry with Bundrage. His familiarity with Montgomery is what puts him ahead of Rohach in my opinion.

    I want the most accurate passer. Let the big receivers get to the ball and they will make a play.

    One interesting note is the pass progressions are different. Last year, we could see one Mess read and then spend your wheels to make a run as oline crumpled. Maybe Mangino brings a better pass progression read system to us. This makes it easier for both qbs.

    Re: Column: Don't sleep on Sam

    It's interesting that it's been almost two full years since Richardson made his debut against KU and we still don't really know what we have with him at QB. Since then, he's either been injured, sick, and/or handicapped by poor o line play, extreme weather, and lousy play calling. I admired his toughness last year and I hope he gets a fair shake at earning the starting job. But ultimately I just want whoever wins it in the next week or so to play well and keep it. I'm sick to death of the revolving door at QB.

    Pretty sure Sam would have kept the job if he hadn't gotten hurt. Grant stepped up and played well making it a tough decision.

    I still feel like Sam has more athleticism and I think we need that to be our best.

    Re: Column: Don't sleep on Sam

    Is this coming up because both (or all three) are performing well, or because none of them stand out yet again?
    It really sounds like the same old story.

    Yeah, that's my concern too. Worst case scenario is that nobody stands out from the three and one of them wins by default.

    Re: Column: Don't sleep on Sam

    Lots of folks complaining about no one standing out. I would like to know how you thought that was going to happen and why you think it is such a bad thing?

    I would rather have two guys capable of winning me a football game and them in a QB battle than one guy who can win games and one guys that just sucks beans.

    Standing out is relative to competition not of actual talent.

    Part of the question is whether either guy can win football games.
    They've had some good days against bad teams, but no real solid wins between the two of them.

    That last line is the actual question I was wondering about. Is this a case where both guys are good and that makes it difficult for them to stand out, or where both guys are mediocre, so there's no real difference?

    Although, it doesnt matter who our QB is if our O-Line cant block for them. We will need better O-Line pay this year. I dont see how it can be worse than last year, so we have that going for us.

    Last year was such a crap show on that side of the ball, just a throw-away year, imo. I don't think we really know yet what we have in either guy.

    I can't remember the last season when we didn't have a QB battle/?.Brett M?
