    Are we recruiting a Juco Quarterback

    I like Arnaud the guy. He just can't pass to save his life. I hope they don't do the same thing Mac used to do and stay loyal to a guy even though he is not pulling his weight. It does not seem like Tiller is any better. I think if we bring in a Juco QB that can play right away we could have a pretty good season next year.
    Herman can't call a good game because he has not faith in Arnaud throwing a good pass. So right now we basically have to run the ball and while we run good the other team has if figured out by the 3rd quarter that we can't pass at all.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    We do still have Tiller. But AA is the guy, he has the experience, he is a leader.

    I doubt it, what would you gain. He would have to learn the system. AA would be worlds ahead of him.

    Bull ****.

    Do you just make a point of illustrating the aptness of your username?

    This is the same guy who threw for 440 yards a year ago. It's not like his arm fell off.

    The best QB option we have on this roster for this offense might just be James Capello? I don't know if AA or Tiller are good enough passers?

    Has anyone noticed every year that AA throws all of his passes to one or two guys? This year it's Jake and Marquis. Sed and Darks haven't even sniffed a pass thrown their way. The coaches talk all week how they need to get other guys the ball, in particular Darks. But AA still stares down the same one or two guys. I don't get it?

    You're hoping there is a Seneca Wallace out there, which there is not. Unless our season completely goes down the drain, I'm willing to bet you won't really see Tiller much at all.

    hamilton-15 catches
    williams-9 catches
    money-13 catches
    arob-6 catches
    catlett-4 catches
    franklin-3 catches
    darks/sed-2 catches
    lenz/zitek/schwarz-1 catch

    i would say that the #1 and #2 receiver should probably be catching more ball then the rest of the team. marquis and money were 1&2 and now i would say marquis and jake are 1&2. those are the guys getting the first and second looks. i would like to see the other guys a little more involved as much as anyone else, but i think you're reading way to much into it.

    It's possible it did. We'll see where he is after Week 3 of Big 12 play. And last year means absolutely nothing today.

    Would you throw the ball to Johnson and Darks with the number of balls they've dropped this year? Jake and Hamilton have caught most everything thrown to them. For example, yesterday on the 4th down play in the last drive, would Darks have made the catch that Hamilton made? I think not.

    I'd say quarerback is the least of our worries.

    Need to continue to recruit recievers and lineman..

    Except for that pass that Sed dropped yesterday. Had his hands on it and dropped it.

    Perhaps Jake and Marquis have shown in practice that they can catch the ball more often than they drop it, or maybe they're the ones running their routes correctly.

    Re: Are we recruiting a Juco Quarterback

    I just re-watched the game yesterday on the DVR. I counted 4 passes that were completely on Arnaud for short hopping them, 3 where the receiver fell down (when the hell will they learn you can't stop in 1 step!! ), 3 where they were dropped (didn't count one of Darks'...he got lit up), and 3 passes he REALLY got away with (the TD pass, the 4th and 5 pass, and the one he nearly took a sack and overthrew Franklin to no one in particular). I would like to club him and the receivers over the head though. DON'T RUN A 4 YARD ROUTE ON 3RD AND 7!
