Default Backup QB competition

Spurrier was quoted saying that true Freshman Michael Scarnecchia will compete for the #2 spot behind Dylan saying "He has a better awareness of what we're trying to do than most any Freshman I've seen. He has a chance. He'll get coached all through the preseason."

I'm sure this is just another example of Spurrier lighting a fire under the other QB's butts but at 6'4" what's the chance of this kid beating out Mitch or Nos?

I'd say anything is a possibility, but I'm hoping that Mitch lives up to all the previous hype.

All I see here, though, is a very, very quality stable to highly capable backups (far beyond what we've seen in the past).

I suppose we'll start to see that shape up beginning tomorrow :)

If that happens than Mitch is not the QB I thought he was. I still think he's the future.

I was told earlier in the Spring that Mitch had some growing up to do. It was one of the reasons why he slipped down the depth chart.

as in maturity - cutting up, not putting in the work in the film room, not listening to coaches etc

OR

on the field - needs to make better decisions, not force balls, trying to learn but still struggling with the playbook or concepts

If all he needs to do is grow up, then he most definitely will be the starter at the end of the season.

He's just head and shoulders more talented than any other QB on the roster.

This is not the first time I've heard this which is what had me curious. I really liked what I saw with Mitch in the Spring games and thought he was going to be a real good QB for us. I really don't think we have any QB that will grab the #1 spot from Dylan but it would be nice to know that we have a capable backup in case Dylan gets hurt.

Hope Mitch is competitive.
It took me three years to learn how to spell "Connor" and I'd hate to waste that.

Thanks Legalman. This kids film is pretty impressive. He has good pocket awareness and looked real good when rolling to his left. His team went undefeated and won there division so how did he fly under so many peoples radar?

Default Re: Backup QB competition

Dylan made a comment about Scarnecchia a few weeks ago that his memory and understanding of the playbook was unreal. That is not just Spurrier being Spurrier. Remember how he talked about Shaw possibly starting over Garcia, and everyone said that it was to light a fire? And Shaw started game one. He just needed some experience to be a far better qb than Garcia was. Spurrier wasn't just lighting a fire under Garcia. He was calling it like he saw it. "Scarnecky" has surprised and impressed. With that said, I would hope that Mitch and Noso have elevated their game to the point that we can RS Scarnecchia. Next year, all bets are off, but I hope that Dylan is our starter every game this year, and that others only get mop up duty.

I've only seen one guy for us play in a big college game. The other 3 or 4 QBs are just names, heights, and weights to me until they see some action in front of 80000 and TV cameras.

Something to keep in mind is that Spurrier and Mangus were allowed to work with the QBs this Summer. I expect all QBs to be further ahead.

Good point. This kid very well could be a dark horse talent that nobody saw coming (except maybe Spurrier and Mangus). No way he competes for #1 and no way Spurrier burns his RS for mop up duty but if he ends up being the #3 guy and Dylan does go down or God forbid struggles along the way I could see Spurrier giving him a shot.
