Default Roper challenges Scar to compete for starting job

Obviously a slim chance he actually earns the starting job, but it's nice to see the coaches pushing him to get his head in the right place (not that it wasn't already there). And, you never know. The backup is only ever one play away from becoming the starter.

Scar HAS to be ready! One injury. That is all it will take. We also need to actually roll up a lead on a team or two where we can get him some game time experience. (Wouldn't that be nice for a change?) Maybe Mizzou, but first likelihood of that is LaTech.

Default Re: Roper challenges Scar to compete for starting job

I can tell you one thing you will see game one. Carolina will be running the ball a lot. We are going to have to slow down pass rushes so we can keep Bentz upright. Our Oline may be a little better this year, but it is not going to be fantastic, so we are going to have to run the ball effectively to keep defenders from getting clean shots at Bentz.
I do believe our RBs will block better this year so that will help out a lot. Everything comes back to how well the Oline performs this year. There is a lot of pressure on Coach Wolfz and his fat guys...I wish them well..

So you are saying the first play of 2017 for Carolina is going to be a run up the middle?

Yeah, but will it will be power run instead of a zone read?

Scar's got a big arm, hope he comes along. It's hard for a QB to make it through an SEC season without getting banged-up somewhere along the way.

He has nice touch on his passes but I wouldn't say he has a "big" arm.

I always loved his HS tape.

Who was the great WR he played with in HS? I think he went to UF.

Would not surprise me if we get a QB grad transfer this summer or convert one of our players to QB especially someone who played high school QB.

So you're assuming Scar will be so bad that we'd be better off converting someone to QB? That's awfully pessimistic.

I know it was just high school, but he played at the top HS level in Florida and had a good completion percentage and Connor Shaw senior numbers with TD's to picks, it was like 20-1.

He's a good backup, just needs some experience.

He wasn't raring back to throw, he was throwing 40 yards off his back foot, when he did throw correctly it went far and quick. Nice arm and touch.

All he needs to do is get the ball to our skill players and not turn the ball over. He has to stay vertical and get the ball out quickly. He needs some PT this year and not lip service.

Seriously though, I like his tape. I think Fleming Island High School must be a smaller school. Some of those fields they were playing on looked like it would be difficult to figure out if they had a first down. (no chalk lines)

When I took it in 05 it was out of 2400. 3 sections, reading, writing, math, each worth 800 points.

Don't know if it changed again or not.
