Default SOS: No QB controversy

Not sure how there could be a controversy since we haven't seen anything from any of the backups, but SOS made no bones about who our best QB is: "If he (Dylan) throws five straight interceptions, he is going to stay in the game."

The flip side of this, however: how bad are our backups???

I don't think it is necessarily how bad our backups are...more of a case they may not be ready to run the offense.

Mitch and Orth are just in their second years of the program...Scarnecchia isn't near ready and Nosovitch I still don't think will be here after this season.

But yeah, not sure how this question even came up.

First, I would almost be willing to bet Spurrier would backpedal faster than Deion Sanders if Thompson were to throw 5 straight interceptions, depending on the circumstances surrounding how the picks happened. Second, if 5 consecutive interceptions were to come from Thompson because of something Thompson did (barring fluke plays like all of them coming by deflecting off the intended receivers' hands) and Spurrier did leave him in, it would be the first time I would ever sincerely believe Spurrier should be fired, because that would demonstrate Spurrier would have clearly gone insane. That said, it does kind of make you wonder what's going on with the backups to cause Spurrier even to say such a thing.

Default Re: SOS: No QB controversy

I think it is confidence for the starter, I'm sure SOS hears and occasionally reads the idiotic opinions of a portion of our fan base that IMO is still caught up in the Shaw v Thompson from last year and just do not like Thompson, so out of habit from last year they continue to bash our starter despite his play and call for another QB.

I doubt anything. It's just youth and not enough time in the system.

Bc at that point Thompson would just be handing the ball off to either Wilds or Davis.

I absolutely agree. No matter the reason, 5 straight interceptions would mean something was terribly wrong in the passing game, so why not run the wildcat right down the other team's throat?

Tangent...

Since Nosovitch is "athletic and we need to find a way to get him on the field" was an SOS comment when the transfer talk was buzzing about.

yet, he hasn't sniffed the field. I'll bet he transfers out...unless HBC told him he was in the penalty box for a few games due to his insolence.

I think Spurrier was basically saying Dylan isn't going to throw 5 INTs. In other words, Dylan is the QB and will be the QB.

Well heres another quote from Spurrier "If a player isn't playing very well, as a coach you have an obligation to the rest of the team to put the next guy in there and see how he'll perform"

I'm honestly surprised to hear Spurrier say that. If Thompson throws 3+ INTS in a game and Spurrier doesn't give the next guy a chance.. we're all going to be wondering what's going on in his head because it wouldn't make a lick of sense. I do think Spurrier respects that Thompson waited his turn for so long, kept a positive attitude and improved as a QB. For that maybe he's giving him a little cushion. After all Thompson is packing pretty much his whole career into this one season.

We really haven't had a game where a backup qb could play yet, unless you want to count the A&M game from about halfway through the third, though I'm not sure when the staff threw in the towel on that one.

Nosovitch is definitely athletic, but we have a lot of athletic bodies at positions he could play. Hard to see where he might contribute a lot. The tight end thing puzzle me, because I'm pretty sure Anderson and Adams are faster, probably Crosby, maybe August too. Drew Owens is probably pretty close to his 40 time as well.

And all those guys are a lot bigger than he is. Not to mention working at the position full time.

Can't see a spot for him at wr or rb either. Probably a lot of schools outside the SEC and he would have a chance at playing time at those positions, but not here.

Then too, qb is his best position. At least qb in an offense that incorporates the qb running heavily, and not the minor amount we use it.

I think he would have been better served to transfer in my opinion. He won't get on the field, and I can't see him beating out the other guys we have at some other positions. So since he won't be helping us on the field, it seems a no brainer for him to transfer.

Maybe he will have his degree this fall, and he can use that graduate student rule to go somewhere where they could use his talents. Boston College, Wisconsin even.

But if he stays here, he won't see the field much and in another year posters on this board will say "I will be surprised if Nosovitch comes back for another year," or "his scholarship may not be renewed."

Whereas if he played in another offense he might have some wonderful memories for the rest of his life.

You have to focus more on the point that SOS is making at the time and not the hyperbole he is using to make it. Point is, DT is the guy this season. But we all know his history with QBs and the quote above (that was my first thought too, thanks for posting it so I could quote it and not have to type it).

My thoughts are that SOS is hoping to get some backups, some young'uns, some PT this weekend and doesn't want to be bothered with speculation crap post game.

If any of our QB's throws 5 INT's it becomes a Spurrier problem because he's calling plays. It becomes an even bigger Spurrier problem if he doesn't give the next guy a chance. I think he was exaggerating a bit, but it shows the confidence he has in Thompson no doubt.

Serously? Connor Mitch has never played a snap in a college game yet, so how can you judge if he is a bust or not?

On top of that, anyone hear what Busta Anderson had to say about last year? He referred to it like the tight ends were ignored, not sure exactly what he meant with what he said, but he didn't sound too pleased when referring to last year.

I understand its way to early to throw the word bust out but,
You had guys posting here like this guy is going to be the second coming of Tom Brady or Peyton Manning.
He has a weak arm and is a system QB
