Anyone think this might be Steele's chance to get back on the field?
JB ran Franklin's system in High School.
So to answer your question: not as the starting QB.
JB will be the QB for some time and will only get better.
I'm sure she'll be back on the sidelines to report next year's victory over #1 - ranked Texas.
Backups see the field on occasion. It sucks for Steele but that's his position IMO.
Because Franklin will remove the interceptions on first plays?
There will always be a Jantz.
I hope so
Seems like Steele could get back on the field today if he just talks to the maintenence guys at Jack Trice. They'd probably open the gate for him.
The last thing I want is Barnett, Steele, or Richardson (who ever wins the job) to be playing passively because they think one mistake will get them pulled.
We will have a delicate situation next year because of this. I expect Barnett to win the job but also expect the Jantz lovers to be calling for his head when he throws his first pick or vice versa.
I don't have anything against Steele, I just want to see the player who does less to hurt the team's chances of winning play. Steele so far hasn't been that guy. Hopefully he can grow to where we have a 1 and 1a option.
This is where Im at as well. I want the guy to succeed and surprise me, but right now he is a liability.
Can we find another position on the field for him?
Put Steele back there at safety. Course I think lil Knott may just step into Bentons position next year.
We still need a #2 QB and despite the hype we don't know how SR will perform in Big 12 or even Div 1 play. Remember, Steele had lots of hype, too.
Besides, we also don't know if with more practice, weight training and film work (not to mention being healthy again) he won't cut the turnovers down. Without the TO's he is competitive for the job.
EDIT: Frankly in the Big 12, especially when your QB runs, you really should have 3 QB's who can step in and play.
I just want the guy that gives us the best chance of winning. If that is JB or Steele, I don't care.
Not saying JB isn't better but Steele had more yards per game, better TD to INT ratio and a higher pass effficency rating. JB did win games though, but he got to play the two worse teams in the conference and A&M as their season was tanking.
Steele is like Brett Favre, you will get high highs and low lows. I think Steel's best is better than JB's best but ISU just isn't good enough to weather the low lows which makes a steady QB probably a better choice.
Great post, totally agree
I would love to see Jantz cut down on his TO's and improve on the zone-read, but I do not think that will happen just because Hermn is gone.
Steele could have been a pretty good QB if in a pro-set offense for a few years.
JB also got to play the 3 best teams in the conference. He beat the top team and went head to head with the 3rd best team. If it wasn't for the turnovers against OU (not all on him) we could have had a chance to hang in there, as well.
I love the results that Jantz had before he got hurt and we wouldn't be bowling without him, but right now, JB gives us the best chance to win.
