I hope you're right, but I think Bentley's past record indicates that he doesn't exactly thrive under pressure.

It will be interesting to see if WM rotates them at any point to see how they both do vs. the same D.

Whoa correct resident tatagata! However I doubt we see it the staff has proven that they are not willing to take the step forward on the QB situation.

Am I the only one that feels like Jake was guaranteed to be "the guy" for all 4 years when he & his dad signed on? Watching his presser he acts like "yep, things are back to normal, I'm here & in charge again" and while he technically says the right stuff about supporting Scar & whatnot, all of the pauses and expressions make me believe his ego got stung a bit last week and he's trying to reassure everyone it's still his job.

Not opposed to this proposition there is certainly things that have gone on that support your theory.

Careful...careful! I'd advise you to quickly pump some sunshine after suggesting such a thing.

Scar is a fifth year senior who has watched from the sidelines his whole career until last week. He came in and played great with no interceptions so now Bentley is healthy. Coach Muschamp looks right past Scar after his great performance and says Bentley is starting.

Suppose he started Scar instead of Bentley and he had another great game? How would that make the coaching staff look if theyíve had Scar all this time and they didnít let him play until they didnít have a choice?

They shut down our run game and pressured Scar more than Bentley has been pressured all year. And Scar was still dropping dimes under that pressure.

Going into that final drive with 1 minute to go, I found myself confident that our offense was going to move the ball. Against Kentucky or UGA, there were multiple opportunities Jake had to lead our offense to tie the game, shift momentum, or even take the lead, and I only saw bad incompletions and interceptions from him in those moments.

We were constantly fighting in this game, and every time that Mizzou had us on our heels, I saw Scar step up when he needed to throw a pass. Nothing he could've done about us running the ball so much and the drops, but he was incredibly consistent, especially when it was clutch time.
Great post.

I hate to disagree, but Iíd hardly call the Missouri game average. Missouri has an NFL quarterback with tons of experience and that kind of leadership makes a mediocre team much better if the opponent is about equal talent wise. Factor in the weather and then Missouri taking the lead with a 57 yard FG with a minute left and that put Scarnecchia under heavy pressure. Scar moved the team, like a seasoned veteran, into FG position to win the game.

I don't think Will would put his two comma job on the line for Bentley's feelings. He said they would go with whoever they felt would give them the best chance to win. Bentley could be yanked. Keep in mind that now other teams have tape on Scar. He may not be able to replicate his performance now.

All I'll say is that it's a lot easier to play in a game where a team has no tape on your strengths, weaknesses and tendencies. Bentley isn't anything great, but he's definitely a better option than Scar.

Human nature is human nature so nothing would surprise me. But I have to believe there is no prejudice or bias and the staff has agreed that Bentley has the most ability of the two and that is why he has started the last 2 years. What cannot be accounted for is how guys will play under pressure. Game day is a lot different than practice. The only way to know is to see them in action.

If both QBs play today and Scar outperforms Bentley then I think Bentley sits for the rest of the year. The staff would face a firestorm of criticism if they continued to start Bentley when Scar plays better.

It's a tough decision for sure. I believe Muschamp knows Scar is a better gamer. But he has to show support for Bentley and give him a chance to prove he can be the guy. If he starts to make mistakes I think Scar comes in and that will be the end of the debate.
