    I believe that we showed last year that we know what to do about those linemen.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

Again if both play a lot this year they made the right call with who to start first I think. (That will probably annoy some otehr peeps too since they will expect whoever is named starter to win the Heisman...)


    I feel better about hammering the NDSU game for big money with Richardson hes been good against bad teams. Think I'll parlay that with Ohio State since Braxton Miller being out is addition by subtraction he blows and the line is way lower with a better QB.

    Wow where to start.... how about just a unified and resounding no. This entire fiasco was about making whichever qb that won the job more mentally tough. Mangino demands mental toughness. Sam's was suspect. So they dumped him on the depth chart and made him hit bottom to bring him back up. A tactic Mangino even brought up on his own in an interview.

    Sam is miles better than Grant when he's healthy. If you can't see that from the tape then maybe you should sit the qb conversation out?

    Re: Starting QB

    Wow noone talks football all weird gifs and obnoxious comments. Would have liked someone to smack down my post with reasoning rather than just condescending BS.

    Richardson should be solid. This isn't a good team. They needed a ton of luck and KSU being brutal to beat them. I guess Richardson is the safe bet to look better than Waters did that first game last year but I'd rather take the high ceiling guy.

    ISU wants this game in the high 30s or 40s. If its lower scoring you are just letting an inferior opponent hang around and have a chance to beat you.

    This is a game where ISU wants short drives and lots of scoring. If it was a Big 12 game you would want to run and milk the clock on offense. Not this game get in the end zone and send the D back out there Richardson is the better guy to win time of possession but thats irrelevant against a 1AA.

    Re: Starting QB

    Grant might finish as a little better of a passer overall, but Sam isn't far behind him at all in the arm category, and his legs add a whole new dimension that Grant can't. Overall Sam has the higher ceiling. Lee-Campbell has the highest ceiling in both talent, and time to get better.

    I'm watching the Texas game from last season. Seems to me that Sam is a good QB for our situation ... he just needs to stay healthy.

    Yeah. Realized that way too many people have too much free time on their hands and refresh these forums constantly looking for a post they can jump on and call stupid so they feel smart.

    See the connection?


    Whatever I thought WVU game was enough to give the younger guy the job to start after he played that well and led the team to a tough road win. Guess to most they don't think Richardson played any part in some bad close losses where a couple more QB plays win the game.

    I don't even think he stinks its just the T Tech, UNI, and Tulsa bowl game losses were due to him not playing well and straight up sucking. That to me is enough to stick with the guy who ended the season outgunning WVU on the road.


    But again at least I talk football in my posts not just post a gif or call someone stupid.


    I'll concede that I am less knowledgable than everyone because I question dumping the guy who won a couple games late in the year for a guy who has bucked badly under adversity. Guess Im stupid. At least I was smart enough to grab an extra 40 tickets to the Kansas State game on stubhub during the summer when they were only 20 bucks. Bet the folks smarter than me will be butthurt when they have to buy those tickets off stubhub from me for 5x that.


    Im taking a break from this forum until basketball season take care everyone and go Clones lets bring that money home against NDSU very easy and soft line try and bet it before it jumps to -4 which it will!

    OK, I'll take the bait.

    This is what you should have said:

    "I think Grant would have been the better choice. He has a better arm, that would be better for games like our first three where the goal is to score quickly."

    Now, everything is open to mockery on this site (you just have to accept that), so there still may have been dumb comments. However, if you had said that, it would have been a lot better than something that sounded all conspiracy theory, like the coaches sending Sam out knowing he will likely get hurt just to move in the "real" better QB 4 games in. Plus the comment about Baylor having a "porous defense."

    Out of the blue, wild-*** theories and statements that are just factually wrong draw the big-time mockery, FYI.

    (For the record, I think Sam was a fine choice and I trust Mangino to make the right choice.)
