We had a terrific win last night, but it made me anxious for season year that neither Mike nor Brandon had that big of a game last night. Having Pharoh in the wildcat gives the HBC a better short yardage package to complement a more traditional dropback QB like Dylan. It will be fun to watch the QB battle in the Spring.
Nosovitch is a bigger Connor Shaw. His mobility will be utilized next year and I will go as far to say it would not surprise me to see him win the job after Thompson.

Anybody remember who was QB last year when USC beat Clemson in Clemson? Dylan must have POd Spurrier for him to play Pharoah and not him. Does Spurrier think Dylan is too religious?

That last TD was a great decision by Coop but it was Spurrier using the Wildcat to set it all up. He used it just at the right time. He got all thier heads thinking pass to Shaw which set up the play and BOOM. Coop to Wilds and turn out the lghts.

Probably right. And if they'd been able to defend the "Shaw Draw". Cooper provided the only other semblance of a running game other than Shaw. Very smart of Spurrier to stick with that since it was clearly working and great heads up play by Cooper all night. He's going to be a great one here.

You mean you see nothing odd about not playing DT after he beat Clemson last year? Not only did he not play DT he played Pharoah at QB ahead of DT.
Straight out DT is the best backup QB in all of college football and he sits on the bench while Pharoah plays.

Why is this not incredibly odd to everyone? We could have beaten Tennessee this year and won the East. Why give away a title? There has to be a reason DT sat on the bench when he clearly had the talent to play. ahead of Pharoah.

If you'd rather not think and give a logical answer don't bother flaming me because the question is too hard for you. I'm not calling your mother names. It's just a football question.

DT wasn't going to manufacture any rush offense.

Ontop of that Spurrier wasn't going to take out a senior that was playing well in his last home game. A guy who was his best weapon of the night to put in someone ice cold off the bench.

IMHO, the Cooper to Wilds, was on of the best play calls HBC and others have made since they have been here. Definitely an FU!

You think DT should have ran the Wildcat instead of Pharaoh?

DT played against Tenn. We failed to manufacture a first down while he was playing QB.

Default Re: Pharaoh Cooper

SOS said that that pass play by Cooper had been put in late in the practices and based on how the game situation worked out, they decided to go ahead and use it.

Thompson would have been put in if our passing game was not working, but that was not the case. Look how many 3rd and long situations Shaw converted.

With Clempson selling out to stop Davis, we needed to turn to any running threat we could. Passing every down seldom works. Aside from the surprise QB draw last year on third and eighteen by Thompson, he is generally not a running threat.

Thompson will have his chance next year to be the starter, but he will have to have a better offseason than Noso and Mitch. I doubt we have seen the last of the QB draw as a weapon we use.

Used it too much? LOL

He ran 4 times for an average of 4.5 yards and threw it twice. One was a TD and the other should have been a catch at the 2. I'm ok with with Cooper running the wildcat and hope he gets 4-6 plays a game with it.
