Here's what I want (and no, it will not happen)

Everyone to sip a big cup of STFU and congratulate two courageous, tough young men on winning the game.

Great, clutch game by both of them.

Yet, somehow, Connor Shaw was still the starter going into the game today and Spurrier said it was "his game." Somehow, Spurrier said after the game that Connor played SUPER and gave him a game ball.

Interesting that a coach like Spurrier would give a game ball to a player that horribly underthrows balls and can't throw very accurately. Interesting that he stuck with Connor Shaw in the fourth quarter today until Shaw was injured.

I wonder why that is?
Getting snippy in your inability to articulate or rebut points. Okay. I guess this answers my "who do you think is better" since you won't do so directly. Do you want to specifically state what, if any, aspects of his game shaw needs to improve on? Or maybe you want to start that "questioning Clowney's play " thread.

I think whoever Spurrier says is better is better. I think I have made that abundantly clear by now.

Should I be banned? I'm asking sincerely; I took strides to not personalize it. I'm specifically speaking to gameplay in the game today and this season and also give Connor all kinds of credit. My issues are more w/ one poster taking issues that make no logical sense and attacking me personally.

Given adequate pre-game preparation, Dylan Thompson is the best QB in the country

Yes, yes you have.

But I think the bigger issue is... we have a few last word warriors in this camp.

I'm fairly certain we all understand each others opinions.

I believe we could probably all argue each others opinions for each other at this point.

Not sure what female underwear has to do with anything, but you might want to keep that in CockyBabes.

I wouldn't have asked the question if it had been clear. But if you say that you don't have a preference ill take you at your word. We should all be enjoying this day and great game. Somehow this devolved into how awful a person I am, but I thought discussing this in a QB thread would be in bounds. I'm not starting new threads or thread hopping to make my point.

South Carolina is the first team this season to throw for more than 200 yards against Michigan's defense.

But you want to jump all over me for my description of the passes and use of "many"? You broke it down to mean "2 incomplete passes". I saw several completions that were. So maybe we have a different idea of what an on target throw looks like. But your accusations are flaming. Specifically speaking to the passes in a descriptive manner is not player bashing, regardless of what you infer my "intent" to be.
Whatever your "intent" is the things you are saying are absolutely ridiculous! Connor Shaw had just as much to do with Carolina winning today as Dylan Thompson did and vice versa. Connor doesn't make "on target" throws all the time but neither does Dylan. The QB talk right now should be how both guys played really well today and were a big reason why Carolina won(and have back to back 11 win seasons for the first time ever). Not the negative garbage you're posting here tonight about Connor Shaw(who is 17-3, 1-0 vs clemtech, and VERY instrumental in the ONLY 2 11 win seasons in Carolina history, by the way)!

Default Re: the qb questions will continue...

One thing to keep in mind about the game was the OL. When Michigan was blitzing they were getting home no matter who the QB was but after Shaw burned them on the ground they started rushing just 2, 3, or 4 the majority of the time. I think that played a big factor in keeping Shaw in the game and Thompson on the bench until the end because our OL just couldn't handle them. When Thompson was in he made some great throws but was a human pinata because Michigan wasn't afraid of his running ability. So I believe that played a role in the PT. Both QBs played great games and we scorched a great pass defense.

I just knew where this was headed.

Why the hell can't we enjoy success or just respect the game our guys just played?

I mean... fuck.

I think the biggest issue on both sides is too many people taking their opinions as absolute truths. Debate and questions can be interesting until the close mindedness kicks in.

Being married for as long as I have has clearly eroded my knowledge of female underwear.

I have no idea what you're talking about.

I agree that Shaw's mobility kept him in the game but sadly it was because the oline couldn't effectively block even when Michigan only rushed 3. I wonder what either QB could do with a half way consistent oline.
