    Horrible decision. Barnett earned the right to play that whole game.

    Agreed. Don't understand the decision at all.

    Worst job by CPR I have seen. JB has a right to be furious.

    Strongly disagree. Neither QB earned the right to be "the guy" at QB. Do not forget that Steele got half of the six wins and Barnett has not been playing well the last two games.

    How is it any different than when Jantz was pulled earlier this year? It's not.

    Kinda think you need to defer to CPR and the coaching staff who commented on his superior preparation leading up to the game.

    It is different because Steele was a turnover machine for all 7 and now 8 games that he played in this year. But the minute Barnett started to have a bad game he got pulled. The kid had a fumble maybe he was injured I don't know and clearly he was not on top of his game but I do think Jantz had a much longer leash during the first 7 games of the season.

    It's not different. Jantz had some good games in his early starts, than struggled for some games and than was pulled early in a game. Exact same as Barnett. Had some good games in early starts, but had been bad for 2 games and than was bad today and got pulled. No different

    I wouldnt necessarily call them good games. Good finishes? yes. But he had to engineer comebacks from situations that were self-created.

    Barnett? Definitely not perfect, but has shown a lot more than Jantz. His 'bad 2 games' were against 2 of the top 3 teams in the conference.

    I figured Barnett had to be injured to be out. Definitely dont think it was the right call to pull him as quickly as they did.

    How is that different than Barnett? 3 turnovers against OSU and we had to come back. It's the same thing!

    OSU is just a little bit better than UNI\Uconn\Iowa.

    Jantz has played 1 good game and that was against Iowa's shotty defense.

    I was fine with Steele getting a series or two but I don't think he should have played the rest of the game. The entire game seemed to be littered with questionable decisions so it doesn't surprise me. Just one of those games, I guess. I don't think it would have mattered who we had at QB today the way the team played collectively.

    Not on defense.

    Barnett also had critical TO's against KSU, OU, and KU.

    Makes me wonder what happened at the practices.. if JB wasn't giving 100% maybe got an Ego that coach didnt like... who knows he maybe was sending a message to JB... no one will really know

    Terrible, terrible decision by CPR. The first time he has really disappointed me in his tenure.

    Steel Jantz should never see the field as the QB again.

    Jantz has had one game where he wasn't a total liability at some point, and that was Iowa. He looked terrible against Rutgers and is a worse ballcarrier than Barnett. I agree I don't get it. If we're pulling people for performance, we should have put Barnett back in after Jantz sailed what looked like his first five passes 10 feet over the receivers hands.

    Jared was really out of sync and couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. I can't blame coach for wanting to go with Jantz.

    But OMG Jantz was a terrible decision maker again last night. If he is our starter next year we will see pressure defense with tons of blitzes every week.

    Have any of you idiots been watching these games. How many fumbles has Barnett lost this year? Do those not count as turnovers now? How are they any different than interceptions?

    CPR knows more than you. Deal with it. Barnett looks like the worst passer in college half his games. So limit this praise.
