    Does Arnaud short-arm the football ?

    I watched Arnad both with the naked eye and binoculars, and it looks like he short-arms his throwns. He can certainly throw the ball a long ways, but his accuracy wasn't very good either in warm-ups or in the "game." There are other college players that throw that way, but it is a small minority and none in the pros that I know of. Anyone else notice?

    From the throws I saw (just in the game), I thought Arnaud throws a good tight spiral. He actually has a better release than Meyer IMO. Meyer throws a little more sidearm 3/4 motion. For a RS Frosh Arnaud has a lot of upside.

    I thought Arnaud threw short and medium passes pretty darn well. His deep balls were way off. I am looking forward to seeing what Arnaud can do in the future.

    Arnaud seems to me like an exact replica of Meyer circa 2 years ago. The touch on the deep ball is one of those things that comes with more experience and I think he's farther along than Bret was at the same point. With some work Austen should get it down but it was never his strong point in high school.

    "I think he's farther along than Bret was at the same point"

    Agree 100%
