I can't believe that Muschamp has any ill will toward Nunez and would approve any school that he chooses.

Agree. He still has to sit out '17 if he goes to a D-1 school, right? That's assuming he can find a spot somewhere. So he'll be left with 2 years to play 2....basically missing 2 full seasons.

His size and athleticism. Plus the fact that our offensive coaches felt he'd be a good WR.

Default Re: Any chance Nunez comes back?

The wise thing to do would've been to move him back to QB when the WR thing didn't work. Even if you didn't think he would start, let him compete at QB like he wanted. You never know and at worst he could've been a good scout team QB for teams with running QBs. I sincerely hope he returns even if he never plays a down in a game he can help us. Things really changed with the QB depth in a hurry. We sold a number of different QBs on the idea of being the face of a new rebuilding up and coming SEC school. How do you sell a kid on becoming a backup? You don't. You go recruit a guy who is good enough to challenge Bentley at the position so that He doesn't transfer. When you hand the reigns to a true freshman who is good, it doesn't bode well trying to convince the next guy that he will play. Then add the fact that bentleys dad is on staff. It may be a struggle to bring in really good QBs the next couple years, and even more of a struggle to keep them here in some capacity. Not a bad problem to have but not a good one either in the event that Bentley gets hurt. We need to get a Dylan Thompson type of player. A dedicated underrated/under recruited athlete out of highschool. Particularly an instate QB who bleeds garnet and won't transfer.

Its rare to have a QB last an entire season in the SEC.


Any rumors in Columbia concerning this??
After the way he was treated? No and I don't blame him.

With Bentley's past knee issues, once wrong hit and we'd wish Nunez was back at QB. Especially with Tennessee's reputation of taking out knees.

I know it's a pipe dream for Nunez to return, but I think it would be great. No disrespect to McIlwain, but I thought Nunez was better. It's hard to compare them since they competed in two different system and a year apart. Having said that my opinion is the "on the field results" favored Lorenzo.

What would Nunez gain from staying here?

He will be behind Bentley this year and next.

He could possibly be behind Joyner or Ulric in his final year here.

His playing time here at USC will come at another position.

If he wants to get on the field as a QB, he is better served going somewhere else.

I say this because McIlwain staying or leaving should not have had any real bearing on his roster depth positioning. He probably should some skill as a dual QB in 2015 and even looked better than Brandon comparing to two's times under center. However, it is clear that Muschamp, Roper and staff wants to place him at a different position and only use him as an emergency QB if at all. He does not want that. He wants to be a QB.

He should see that if he stays, he would only be listed on the depth chart at number three and be a place holder for Ulric, Scar, or another QB.

That's the question! Not sure if there's any value for a slash type guy in our offense, but he might be the guy for something like that.

No and why.
Is a liability in the passing game and could not pick up the WR position.

Move on.

Wildly speculative.

Even so, should Muschamp be obligated to start an inferior QB to the detriment of the team if a better option is available, just because the other QB was here first?

The only thing I would say about comments like this is that when other QB from prominent schools have announced they were transferring you have schools who begin actively recruiting them. I haven't read anywhere about schools beating down the door to get Nunez or Mcllwain.
