Without the two fumbles by Davis in the first half Dylan would have had Mizzou put away early.
Connor had games like UT/MSU/UF in 2011 where he barely passed over 100 yards but he made some clutch plays (90+ yard drive and TD run vs UT, late 4th quarter fade to Alshon vs State, late 4th quarter throw to Ace vs UF) that won those football games.

I would've liked to have seen Dylan step up in the 2nd half of Missouri and battle back. But by the 3rd or 4th drive in the 2nd half, he just hit the wall. Adversity is bound to happen and I hope Dylan is able to play better through it next time. UCF's 2nd half wasn't bad but the staff pretty much took the ball out of his hands. I'm hoping this year if things don't go his way for a half that he regroups and comes back to make some clutch plays in the 2nd half to win football games.

That's exactly the opposite really. Dylan can throw the ball and be accurate. But when he misses, he really misses. Which makes you step back and say "Whoa!". He misses either 5 yards over their head, or bounces 5 yards in front of them. Which points to the mechanical flaw as mentioned by CoverTwo.

Thompson wasn't doing that bad. Mike Davis fumbled away two TDs inside the three yard line.

Default Re: D.Thompson vs mizz u.

He just missed that TD in first half to Nick Jones in that Mizzou game. Jones had his foot on the line. And there was an obvious pass interference on Anderson in the second half in the endzone that wasn't called. He threw one INT and that pass that floated out of bounds on him when Byrd had beat the entire defense was what got him pulled. But he some tough breaks and it's not like Shaw always hits his man either. If Dylan had played more regularly he would probably hit more of those passes.

If Dylan make another jump in completion % like he did from 2012 to 2013, he will be fine. He went from 52% to 58.4%

Default Re: D.Thompson vs mizz u.

The Mizzou game was Connor's most amazing game no doubt but it was Mike Davis' worst game. Those two fumbles totally deflated all our MO. Only a complete change of face could have restored MO. Enter Connor.
But those two fumbles were all Davis. If Connor had started those fumbles would have hurt his game too.

I honestly think spurrier prefers winning the game by running the ball, playing keep away, letting his defense rest, and limiting turnovers now. The Fun n Gun days are over in my opinion. Time to accept it.

Which is completely opposite of what has happened when Dylan is in the game.

Davis was handing the game to the Tigers on a silver platter. He never explained where his head was that game. Davis had a fumble issue in 2012 but he got lucky because the offense recovered his drops. Davis has fumblitus at times no doubt.

Default Re: D.Thompson vs mizz u.

Either way I hope D Thompson doesn't read this crap, it is pretty negative giving how he didn't play bad in that game. Dropped passes, fumbles near the line. Maybe the team didn't respect him as much as they did Shaw, if so that needs to change this year. Remember clutch performances? I remember a bowl game in 2012 that without Dylan Thompson, we lose that game.

He ran the table in Death Valley too. DT has a Clemson victory under his belt. Does Taj Boyd have a USC victory?

This is the same kid that we sent up to start and play the entire Clemson game in front of a hostile crowd as a sophomore.

This is the same sophomore that came through in a clutch for us in the Outback Bowl and sent Bruce Ellington into the end zone with seconds left on the clock.

This is the same kid that as a rising senior, Spurrier said was his best player on the team.

Will he make mistakes? Absolutely. I also think with his faith, his leadership, and his O-line, in that order, he'll be a joy to watch this year.

Default Re: D.Thompson vs mizz u.

I like Dylan and think he can be good. I just have that little bit of doubt, because of games like UCF, Vanderbilt, and Missouri where he really ran into some hard times for whatever reason.

That UCF game where Shaw got hurt was horrendous. If it wasn't for Davis' 3 TDs we would have looked really bad. That's the game where Spurrier quit throwing all together and just ran and ran and ran.

The Vanderbilt game is where we had them down and he was doing so good but then throws that INT that started their comeback. They almost got us too.

People harp on Davis for the fumbles at Missouri, but don't forget about the INT Dylan threw when he was all over the place. Davis was HUGE in that final drive for us. He overcame his mistakes, but it appeared as if Dylan couldn't.

Well. One thing I do like that you pointed out is that Thompson doesn't get hurt, because Shaw was getting hurt all the time. Give Thompson the reigns a I think he will shine.
