    Randy Pete: Starter will be Richardson

    I personally hope he is correct. I didn't see a thread on this story, sorry if it is already posted buried somewhere...
    Peterson: Richardson is perfect for Mangino's Cyclone offense

    Randy Peterson, randypeterson@dmreg.com


    AMES, Ia. It was obvious right from the start, the identity of Iowa State's starting quarterback come Aug. 30 against North Dakota State. Some of us just overthought it.
    We tried to make a logical case for both. We gave it our best shot, while, in fact, it was as plain as the No. 12 on Sam Richardson's uniform.
    That's who I still expect Paul Rhoads to reveal Monday during his almost-daily post-practice session with reporters that for the second season in a row, it's Richardson.

    FWIW, I think everyone with a connection to the football team would say the same based on what I have heard. I will be shocked if they announce that it is Grant tomorrow.

    Yeah...I have not a single inside source, but everyone, sans Travis Hines, has felt it will be Richardson for the last few weeks. I would be shocked if come tomorrow, Grant is practicing with the ones.

    Re: Randy Pete: Starter will be Richardson

    I think we all agree with Randy, however, I'm not sure why we "should" have known this all along?

    I don't think the coaches even knew until about a week or so ago who was going to start?

    Re: Randy Pete: Starter will be Richardson

    People say Grant had more power behind his passes but failed to realize that Rhoads said this summer, Richardsons workout helped him have the same power behind his passes as Grant.

    So if he throws better and moves better, how difficult of a decision is it

    Re: Randy Pete: Starter will be Richardson

    The funny thing about it is that I bet you could go back several weeks or a few months ago in articles or chats and Randy would say that it is obvious that Grant would be the starter. I don't mind the article, but Randy writes likes he's the only one to come up with the theory.

    I agree Sam appears to be the guy. But I don't see how that was obvious all along. Up until the end of this week it sure seemed like it could go either way

    Ya, RP was saying before to look for Rohach to be the starter. Trey Scott and CW both wrote that they expected Sam to be the guy a couple days ago. RP just catching up.

    I can't pretend to know the intricacies of mangino's system but Sam reminds me mostly of reesing out of our 3 qbs

    Randy must Not Been at ISU gamesbil

    I haven't read the article, but don't know how anyone could say this decision was obvious unless they have been attending the fall practices. As fans the last time we saw Richardson on the field during the spring game he looked like a QB that had lost his confidence and very nervous in the pocket.

    IMO its a great story if Sam has transformed his game both physically and mentally since mid April. If Sam is the guy, his running ability is an added dimension to ISU's offense that Grant doesn't possess. I just hope his running isn't out of necessity. It will be:critical for the coaching:staff to continue Grant's development, because Sam has been unlucky from an injury standpoint.

    Re: Randy Pete: Starter will be Richardson

    If he can stay health and win us games I'm fine with him being our QB

    Re: Randy Pete: Starter will be Richardson

    I think it will be Sam and I'm excited about it. I think we have yet to see him at 100% and I'm anxious to see what he can do with a bigger, stronger frame and an OC that doesn't try to get him killed.

    I am excited to see what SR can do with a competent playcaller on the sidelines.
