This brings up an interesting point. Why were our receivers never open today against a very poor defensive secondary. The truth is, they were open, but Shaw didn't either have enough time, (he was sacked 5 times) or it hurt to throw off his bad foot and he couldn't get enough on the throw. We did not throw at any TE today. Our OL was not good. But considering Shaw's terrible pick in the first half (receiver was wide open behind their LB) and Davis fumble on the 5 yard line, we should have been up 21-7 at half. If we play like this next week, our 3 year run will be over.

Strickland came in for Connor on the one play, so maybe DT isn't 100% either.

Shaw has a nagging injury that needs rest in order to heal. We were facing a vastly inferior opponent whom our backup QB could easily dismantle. I'm sorry if some of you can't grasp that simple logic, but you could at least concede that I've raised a valid point.
I agree. SOS sat Clowney. I guess he must think Clowney is more valuable to the team next week than Shaw.

Ummm, according to some, because Connor Mitch isn't on campus yet.

I was there, we had receivers open all day long, but CS doesn't go through his progressions and he is very, very tentative in throwing the ball. His game is to look at one receiver, think, "He's not open" and take off. That is what he has always done, and it is what he will always do.

We're betting heavily on Connor Mitch next season.

I have no idea why we could not blow out Wofford like we blew out East Carolina or UAB this year.

It seems like Carolina should have had an easy day at the park.

Default Re: Can someone explain to me the rationale behind starting Shaw today?

We have played Wofford twice before (who ran the same offense then, too) while SOS has been here and both times we played poorly and were fortunate to win. To expect this time to be much different would be foolish or hopeful, at best. SOS also knew we would likely have few offensive possessions of the ball and needed the most experienced and best QB to maximize our chances to score, especially if our "D" struggled to stop the option.

If we had gotten off to a better start, Shaw probably would have been pulled once the game was in hand.

That logic is insane. Do people really think he will start over Shaw next year? A freshman QB with a team who could easily win the entire conference next year? Don't think so. If anybody will give shaw a run for his money it's DT.

I'm pretty sure "favoritism" had nothing to do with why Bobby Wallace didn't see much playing time...

Don't think that Mitch won't be in the thick of things. He's a hell of a QB and, more importantly, the type of QB that thrives in Spurrier's type of offense.

I am hoping he is a fast learner since he gets here in January. It should be a push for the other QBs.

I saw Connor today after the game. I had to take the elevators down from Section 306 and I ended up having to wait for my husband because he walked down. I was standing across the way from the x-ray room. Connor walked out limping and didn't have a very happy look on his face. I hope he's going to be ok.

Default Re: Can someone explain to me the rationale behind starting Shaw today?

what a pointless thread.

he started because he is our STARTING QB.
he started because he is our BEST QB.
he started because you dont sit your BEST PLAYERS just to do it.
he started because HE DESERVES IT!!

why would you take a win out from under him???? thats so stupid.

its football, you get dinged up and you get hurt up some, ITS FOOTBALL. thats the chance you take.

as it turns out, shaw is fine, he gets a win, spurrier comes out to be right again.

cant wait for the next thread like this.

Spurrier is running a game on Clemson. They will prepare for Connor at QB
but DT will get the start.

2 points to consider....using your logic, why didn't Clowney play. And Shaw is not OK. We don't know what is ankle will be like next week.....we don't even know what's wrong with it.
But based on his passing today, it hurt like hell to throw because he had a hard time pushing off to get any velocity on his throws.
