    The spring game changed my vote from Barnett to Jantz.

    Tiller!!!! Serious, I want the best QB on the field and I'm sure that's what will be there.

    (Safe play)



    Edit: I didn't vote.

    Barnett just can run the zone read soo much better. I wasnt able to see the spring game, but Barnett just seems like the better natural fit for this offense.

    The only thing better about Barnett this season appears to be his number change from #16 to #7.

    This is true, but I think we can get enough variety on the ground by using our 4-5 running backs in different formations, positions, and personnel groups. Steele Jantz, though willing to take huge risks, has the better arm with which to make deeper passes. To spread the opposition out, we need to be able to stretch the field vertically as well as horizontally, and Jantz gives us the best chance to do just that.

    Barnett, however, is capable of running an efficient offense, and I would not be disappointed to see him win the job by any stretch of the imagination.

    Seriously, I don't care who starts as long as they take care of the ball and keep the D out of short field situations.

    JB looked god awful on Saturday, with Jantz a close second. Sam doesn't look like he could run that spread option too many times, seems like a pocket passer to me.

    Steele and barnett may have reached their ceiling. It doesn't appear to be very high for either.

    Figured an off season would help Jared's accuracy/arm strength

    Guess not.

    Is it just me or does any body else think we need to get away from the Danny Mac zone read.

    I want the QB who demonstrates in fall practices that they give the team the best chance to win. Since we don't know who that will be, I want to vote for Derp-ech Mode again.

    As CPR predicted before spring ball, we really aren't any closer to an answer than we were before.

    The offseason is only half over. There are still 3 months left of the offseason for all of the QB's to improve on their strengths and weaknesses.

    Were there any two back sets in the spring game?

    The qb should be whoever manages the game best, makes the best decisions and fewest mistakes. That's been JB in the past.

    Can't be too hard on 2 QBs playing in mobile sets where they aren't a running threat (due to green jerseys). Both Steele and Barnett had several plays where they could've broke big runs but the whistle was blown due to incidental contact (including what would've clearly been a rushing TD for Steele). Add that to the defense knowing they don't have to do much to contain the QB and you have what we saw on Saturday.

    I really have no idea what to expect out of this offense come Fall.

    honestly, whomever the coaches pick, that's the guy I want. I think it's going to be a fun year though with a decisively divided camp on here. If we don't win in Iowa City this year, it's going to be an interesting meltdown on here bashing that QB. I hope it isn't, but I have a feeling it's going to be a season of people posting reasons why another guy should be starting.

    What sucks is we will have a qb controversy the next two years after this because of Barnet v. Richardson. I don't know why Rhoads doesn't go out and get a 5 star quarterback to end the controversy.
