Neither does Hilinski, and I don’t think he will if given a fair shot.

Probably big game fake himself is the reason he feels this way.

I donít know that he will, but I think he could.

Jake hasnít played well enough to not be de-throned. Dabo showed a champions mentality by benching Bryant in favor of Lawrence. It seemed cruel to unceremoniously demote a guy whoíd been in the program all that time, but they wouldnít have won the title with Bryant. He was good but Lawrence was better. Dabo made a hard decision he knew had to be made if they wanted to win a title.

At the moment, I donít think Champ has that mentality.

A few posts ago you asserted Hilinski would be running as starter because he would be throwing to Edwards. Now you say that's not likely. Regarding Clemson, we have NO idea what the practice battles were like between Byrant and Lawrence. In the end yes Lawrence won the job and won a Natty. But that didn't happen day 1. It took time to play out. For Hilinski to start day one would require him to be phenomenal, not only in picking up the playbook, and developing relationships with receivers but also translating his HS talent to college. Just because Hilinski has the talent doesn't mean it translates right away.

The initial post you reference was tongue in cheek. But I never said itís not likely that Hilinski would be the starter. I said I donít KNOW it, because it canít be known. Iím not God.

My gut says he could earn the starting position if given a fair shot.

My gut also says he wonít be given a fair shot.

Agreed, but Papa Bryant wasn't on the coaching staff. I am not saying Jake's dad has influenced the decision about who is starting QB, but, it will be significantly harder for an entrenched SR QB to lose the job due to the turmoil it would cause in the locker room.

Either way, Bryan should have a pretty decent QB throwing balls his way next season. Given the quality of opponents next season, he will have an excellent opportunity to showcase his skills.
