I really think that it's just that Thompson and Spurrier see the field the same way. Thompson is a Spurrier style quarterback. It's easier for Spurrier to call the plays quickly when Thompson is in. That's why the game moves so much faster. With Shaw, it seems that two or three coaches are trying to decide which play to call next. I think that's why Connor is always stepping back before he calls a play and looking at the sidelines.

I'm sure that there is more than can be done to play to the strengths of both of them now that they are both recognized as being good. I have never denied that Shaw is good, and I don't think I've ever said that Thompson is better than he is. I have felt that Thompson was underrated, and that was what I was reacting to.
There are a couple of reasons for this.....One we call in our audibles from the sideline like most teams do b/c our coaches are not confident enough to allow Shaw or whoever is taking the snap to do it themselves. And two, the reason why it takes longer is because we have more options with Shaw meaning more plays available to run with him because the offense is designed around him running it more then DT b/c Shaw gets first team reps almost the entire week.

Now I just would like to point out something that I don't think alot of people have mentioned and thats the play clock. How many times could you count in a single game when Garcia was here that we would get a delay of game or end up having to waste 2 timeouts before we even got into the second quarter. Every time after Garcia did this Spurrier would either just shake his head or throw his visor in frustration. Its so relieving to know that we have two QB's capable of getting an offense lined up and snapping the ball in time even after an audible may or may not be called in.

It's going to be a long offseason listening to the speculation.

Look at it this way...we're fortunate enough to have at least TWO quality starting caliber QB's at this present time. I can remember just a couple of years ago having no other real option at QB. Then add in Noso and Mitch to the mix.

Combine the two guy's stats, and at QB this is what we wound up with this season...220-355 for 2,983 yards, with 28 TD's and 9 INT's.

I'll take that combined total from our two headed monster any day of the week.

This years spring game should be fun to watch.
Shaq Roland with experience, Thompson/Shaw battle, Noso, Mitch, Kwinton Smith and Jody Fuller, etc
Plenty of story lines to watch

An offseason question, since we have plenty of time on our hands - does anyone think that Thompson is better now than Garcia was when he was here?
Garcia in what year? Senior? Hell yea, Dylan is better than senior Garcia who couldn't hit a slant or a hb screen.

Well Dylan Thompson sure has thrown a wrench in the assumed Gamecock QB succession plan.
It's a great time to be a Gamecock and I really am happy both Dylan and Connor were a big part of our 2nd consecutive 11 win season.

Here is my two cents. I think a whole bunch of people on here are reading way too much into this. Everyone needs to stop and think about who said this, HBC thinks before he speaks and does and says alot of things to motivate. Now we know Shaw is having surgery and it's going to be mainly DT for spring/Summer so I think the reason he said what he did was to try and get the most out of DT during the off season. He knows how to get in one's head for positive and negative and I feel this is why he stated what he did.

Shane Matthews had a long NFL career. He may not have always been a starter but he hung around a lot of teams mentoring younger QBs. There's also a QB up in Boston that has a number of Superbowl rings and was a back-up his entire college career.

It's also probably a good idea for people to actually listen to the conversation and the related series of questions leading up to this statement and the comments afterwards as well. The context of statements is just as important ad the statement itself in most cases.

Yea so next year you get a Redshirt on Mitch, Shaw is a senior and Dylan a Junior being our #1 & #2......Now Nosovitch could sneak in there but being a Redshirt that gives us great options. So the year after that we have DT as a senior, Nosovitch as a RS Sophomore and Mitch as a RS Freshmen.......Not gonna lie but I like the way we look for QB's for the next 3-4 years.......Now could Mitch and Nosovitch pan out to be not so good? Maybe but at least we have DT for two more years.

Cover Two, you are my favorite poster but...this is BS, especially for Byrd. Watch the replay and the shadows. The sun was shining directly in Dylans face when he threw to Nick. The next play, Byrd was facing Dylan when it hit him in a bad place, the helmet.

Its also BS because "no excuses" is the HBCs motto. I know Spurrier well enough to be sure that he won't tolerate dropped TDs that are catchable, sun-in-my-eyes or not.
