    ISU football: Prized recruit Tiller to be Arnaud backup



    By ANDREW LOGUE • alogue@dmreg.com • October 13, 2008
    Waco, Texas — Who's the backup quarterback?

    That was the question hovering over the Iowa State football program following Phillip Bates' sudden departure last Thursday.

    This isn't exactly "news". :wink:

    In other words, Tiller probably won't play if it's an issue of a play or two. Just like we've been saying.

    I hope they don't burn his RS if we only need a series or two. Its not worth blowing his year on a 2-4 win season. If Arnaud is out for a few games then that is different, but I guess I want them to think twice about putting him in if AA gets the wind knocked out of him or something..

    The team needs to be more focused and play sixty minutes. With our non conference schedule, we should be a .500 team with all the hype from the last few years. Kent State, UNLV, and SDSU and Iowa are not overwhelming. That should keace us with 2 or 3 wins in Big 12 at home by end of year. If not, we have not progressd from the last administration. Sorry. And the because we are young card is old - you better compete some each year. Our best game is apparently a loss to KU whereby we detonated on the last series in overtime just like we have done a few times in the past. Nothing has changed yet. Looking forward to next tier improvements. It is there for the taking. NE, KSU and CU are possibilities but we do need to play better as a team than we have shown.

    Why does everyone think the KU game went to OT? Were you there??? Did you not watch it?? The game ended in regulation folks.

    It ended with four and out and was very similar to overtime. We had a great chance to win and it went poof. The same four and out (in overtime) and poof happened at UNLV. Last year we had Toledo and some might argue Oklahoma. However, we did pull out Iowa last year with PB catch and Shaggy kick and Colorado wihen they vaporized. Still waiting for signature win this year. NE?

    This is all you need to know. If AA gets the wind knocked out of him one of the ther QB's will be in there I'm sure. Significant to me means he comes out of the game and they wait until afterwards to determine who plays QB the next game.

    Did anybody notice that AA only had three carries in Waco? GC knows our QB has to be able to run and saturday he didn't let him. If he's going to be that cautious, we may not win another game this year. AA's running ability in part is what kept Bates on the sideline.

    Keep the rulers in your pockets, boys...

    Barring a season ending injury to AA, we would be better off in the long run playing Mahoney at QB than wasting Tiller's redshirt this year.

    The cannon will hopefully stay on the bench. Chizik just mentioned on the call in show that he essentially hasn't practice yet this year being #3 on the depth chart for much of it. They in no way envisioned him getting playing time. I don't care what his talent level is, if he get's in the game it will be ugly. The playbook would be alarmingly small and simple.

    I hope that AA does not get hurt this year or any year, but if that happens this season then I think the coaches will use Tiller depending upon the injury. We need some wins yet this year period and if Tiller can maybe come in and deliver I am all for it. We can always recruit another good qb right?
