Default Next year an the QB Situation....

I thought of waiting, but I cant.
When Connor "THE DAMN LEGEND" Shaw leaves our program we will be left with only one QB who can say he has played any games. THat is Dylan Thompson. Don't worry I am not looking ahead, as I am a fan and not a member of the football team.

My question is, who do we go with, and does it really all rest on spring ball? Is it going to be Dylan Thompson, Brenden Nosovitch, or Connor Mitch?

Connor Mitch may I remind you was one very highly touted freshman coming in. Spurrier said something along the lines of as long as you wear the garnet and black I will be here. I wonder what he meant by that, and if he seriously considered sticking around 5 more years to watch this guy grow as a QB.

Who knows.. may be speculations, maybe a QB getting ready to ring the SEC in on offense. I just want your opinions.

I would be thrilled if Connor Mitch was good enough by next year to be a better option than Dylan Thompson. But I think its all 17 next year, and could be a pretty picture

Spurrier will be here through Connor Mitch. He shoots straight from the hip even if it hurts.

Default Re: Next year an the QB Situation....

Nosovich is more a shaw like guy...but we don't know about his toughness. Mitch is supposed to be Spurrier's first superstar Qb that he thought Garcia was going to be.

If I had to bet...Mitch. I think Dylan is good but he does tend to be a gunslinger and not take the best care of his passes. He's been lucky on as many as he's had picked off...

Default Re: Next year an the QB Situation....

Dylan will be a 5th year Sr with multiple game/winning experience. Mitch won't take the starting spot as long as Dylan is consistent. Nos and Mitch will battle for the back-up role early. We will probably rotate QB's throughout the season b/c of injury or performance, just like we've done the past 9 years.

It's going to be a good battle next year for PT.

I just hope it's treated as an open competition and the person who starts game 1 is doing so because he outperformed the others.

This is the case for a lot of programs not just South Carolina. South Carolina is also lucky because in a lot of other cases, the backup qb doesnt see tons of time. Dylan has a couple starts under his belt already which is hug for confidence.

Default Re: Next year an the QB Situation....

A proper evaluation of Dylan will be possible once shaw isn't our guy anymore and Dylan is the focus at practice and the guy we build most of the plays around. My bet is he looks much better if sos is calling plays with a pocket passer in mind from the get go. I expect a little wildcat against lesser teams too with cooper.

Default Re: Next year an the QB Situation....

Its going to be interesting to see how we go from a qb with running skills to a qb without those running skills. The thing I hope DT works on during the off season is the intermediate passing game. Lately it seems like all his passes are either dump offs or long balls, and he does seem to throw into coverage a lot. This could just be from the bench play calling though. Either way, I think we will be changing our offensive scheme somewhat due to the difference in our qb abilities.

Default Re: Next year an the QB Situation....

Shaw was a great and much needed QB when the OL plays struggled. He kept drives alive with his legs. Dylan can move a little, but not nearly as good as Shaw.

Whoever replaces Shaw will go as far as the OL takes them. If 4 of the 5 starters come back, it could be a tremendous season. If a 2 guys leave early, it could be awful for a pocket passer.

Default Re: Next year an the QB Situation....

With Connor, we've become tri-dimensional...run/throw/RB. I just hope we don't box ourselves into something like we saw before Connor became our starter and the end result is we become predictable and easy to defend.

IMO, the only way we keep having 10-11 win seasons is our QB is either a legit dual threat guy or he's a very good pocket passer who can pick apart a defense like we saw Connor do last Sat. night.

For now, if our next pocket guy cannot play on the level that we've seen the past few years, then I hope we bring in a dual threat if that's what it takes to win games.

Whoever starts next season will be the best option and most consistent QB we have on roster at a time we are so deep in Qb talent we will be just fine.

Dylan is 3-0 as a starter. Doesn't that count for a lot around here? Seriously though, I think it's okay to lean toward the experienced guy as the supposed starter next year, but I honestly hope there ends up being a legitimate competition and not just something the coaches claim is happening.

DT will get better this off season. He'll be a terrific QB for us next year with stable backups in Noso and Mitch. Matter of fact, they all will get better.

Shaw will be missed, but we'll be fine.

Dylan Thompson, with a nice group to compete behind him, learn as he did with the attitude that his chance could come at any snap and be ready because in the SEC the back up will almost always get to see the field. I think Mitch wins the back up job...
