    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.
    I'd say it was obvious from watching and comparing Richardson's games vs Rohach's games. I cant remember a single play from Grant last year that stuck with me or wowed me. Richardson has wowed me several times, like the 50+ yard run he had. Does that mean anything? No. But this team needs playmakers wherever they can get them, especially QB, and Sam has always been the bigger play-making threat because of his ability to run or throw.

    Re: Randy Pete: Starter will be Richardson

    If both QB's are similar in terms of ability and results, I'd go with the one who has the most upside. Personally, I think Rohach has more upside. But until Mangino proves otherwise, I'm going with his decision and will support it.

    Re: Randy Pete: Starter will be Richardson

    You guys realize one bad game...one bad SPRING game, means nothing, right? He may have been just fine then, just had a bad game.

    Did you guys see how Eli Manning did his last preseason game? Pretty similar. ****** games happen, might as well get them out of the way before it matters.

    Does anyone know if Sam has been looking really good? Or is he just being named because its time to name a starter.

    They aren't similar. Sam throws it just as hard as Grant, throws less interceptions than Grant, and runs better than Grant.

    Really, unless Sam just makes horrible decisions, it seems like a no brainer after Rhoads said Sam and Grant are equal in terms of passing game.

    Re: Randy Pete: Starter will be Richardson

    If it is Sam, I am happy for him. I thought they played him injured way too much last year.

    I think having Sturdy as a dedicated QB Coach will really pay off for these guys. Also, Mangino's knowledge and credibility is just a bit higher than our last OC/QB Coach.

    Staying healthy is key. But if something happens, I have confidence Grant will do fine.

    What is pete going to write about after the choice is made? My guess is that he will criticize regardless of who it is.

    It will be good for Sam to get two solid weeks of all the practice time with the ones.

    Also, Travis Hines recently predicted that it would be Rohach. Hines is outstanding for ISU basketball coverage, but he must not have the connections in the football program that CW has or even Trey Scott.

    Probably a little bit of both.

    Reading between a lot of different lines, it kind of sounds like the 2 of them were very close throughout the spring (remember that Sam played with the 2's in the spring game) and the first week or so of practice. I think it sounds like Sam had a really good week last week.

    Can you explain or support how "upside" is measured? "Upside" seems to only be peoples opinions of players from the limited exposure they have to their play and ability. There doesn't appear to be anything measurable or accurate on ones "upside".

    Guys, what if Sam starts all year and we don't have a QB controversy heading into the next season?
