Could you elaborate on this a bit and give us some specifics? What's the word from GA?

Default Re: Starting Qb next year

I don't understand how anyone can say that this job is Thompson's to lose like he is so much more advanced than any other QB we have. There is still a spring and summer before our first game next year.


Everyone likes to point out Connor Mitch's arm strength, and how Spurrier recruited him, and all this blah blah. And everyone likes to point out Dylan Thompson's performance against Clemson, and how Dylan Thompson has been the back up for 2 years now, and how he was promised to play this year, and blah blah blah. But people forget that Nosovitch was a PARADE All-American.

And PARADE All-American isn't a joke. Most of the top college football players in the country were PARADE All-Americans.

And I'm all for heart-warming stories, but I'd prefer to win. So you put the best QB in for the job, not necessarily always the fan favorite. I love Dylan Thompson and everything he's done for the program, but if he's not the best, then oh well. If he is the best, then great.

SOS will play his best QB regardless of what the Monday quarterbacking fans have to say. Recall that early this season some fans were up in arms to have SOS play Dylan over Shaw. Shaw silenced those critics with his performances and in-turn vindicated SOS's QB pedigree. In SOS and Coach Mangus I trust, Go Cocks!!!

We can only hope that whoever starts does so because they earned the spot and not because they are someone's guy, have put in their time or was all world in HS.

If the oline can run block and a solid running game can be established it will take a lot of heat off the QB position.

Default Re: Starting Qb next year

My only concern with Dylan is how inconsistent he plays. Half the time he looks like a world beater the other half you're wondering why he made that throw. Getting the majority of the #1 reps may help alleviate that issue but if it doesn't the QB job will be up for grabs. I think it is fair to say with us returning so much on offense all things being equal we go with Thompson but if Noso or Mitch show more consistency Spurrier won't hesitate to start either of them.

haven't seen/heard those..? But if so, yea that doesn't necessarily sound good. But I know Mangus loves Noso so that doesn't make sense. I hope we see everybody a lot next year, but hopefully at least in a consistent order.

Can't spell velocity with swaggga, pantera17, or oceana.

Until you get over you obsession with the velocity BS, no one is going to give your comments any respect. But I suspect you'll get banned again as usual.

He said Noso could maybe be a RB on his show after the Arkansas game when Noso barreled in for our last TD in our blowout of the Razorbacks. I think he meant it tongue in cheek and not serious about him really playing RB.

Can we explain what "NFL Caliber Arm" is? I'm REALLY interested in knowing.


We've all seen QB's play in the NFL who struggled to throw 20 yard passes accurately, and we've seen QB's throw 70 yards in the air before. That's a huge range for "NFL Caliber" right there...

By that standard, every college quarterback has an NFL caliber arm.

My post did not call your post dumb or even disagree with anything other than the fact that you thought Todd Ellis had an nfl arm as well or so you insinuated and I questioned that. If you would have read it objectively you would realize that I said Mitch has a far better arm than Ellis. I agree that his arm looks like an NFL arm.

You attacked back as that was all you did to everyone and made inane comments like I wish everyone was as smart as me. Which is childish at best.

Smart and Swag do not go together. Wise up son.

If Jon Kitna could play in the NFL for the length of time he did, and won a starting job at one time I think, then arm strength must not be that big of a deal. If Kitna made an NFL team, Shaw can.
