    I like Stille, DThomas, The Davis Twins, Mick, Daniels, Freedom inside, Newell (can he finally contribute?) stout at the point of contact. Not so sure about our LBs. Yet...

    Whose gonna get to the QB this year?

    I ask you guys. I think it's valid. That's why I think we see a lot more traditional 4-3 with personnel

    Yes. I envision Gebbia seeing a lot of DE/LB scrapes that just keep inviting him to run the ball on those read options

    Read some article earlier where class was claimed not to be the reason.

    People will speculate though..

    If any offense demands a QB that is in the class of "one of the greatest ever" in order to function, it's a bad offense.

    I've changed my mind, I want them to name a starter tomorrow so there can stop being QB speculation threads.

    Same problems with 4-3. All those guys fit well in the 3-4, not sure we have a 4-3 DE that can get after the QB either. We will be deep and talented up the middle (DL, ILB and safety) but need to find difference makers on the outside (OLB and CB), no matter what front we are in.

    It’s a good thing his high school was in the 230lb and under division.

    This really concerns me as well. He told HCSF "90%" but then said he was already better than his junior year in HS but paraphrasing SF, amart doesn't have the same zip on the ball he had in his film. Something isn't right.

    Not according to the head coach. He clearly stated that they had 2 that were separating from the pack and were getting more reps than the others and that that started in practice 8.

    Well it wont be Dawkins from Arizona, he just committed to Indiana. So I guess for you to be correct, Burrows needs to be 2nd or 3rd best at Ohio St so he will be the one. Unless you know of another dual threat QB that is GT eligible

    We don’t really know how serious Frost was in Dawkins, I still think they have what they want out of the group that they have and this won’t be settled till the fall camp.

    My thought is if Frost was serious in Dawkins he would have offered, especially if he knew Dawkins was looking to have it wrapped up soon.

    If so, I owe @c3ntral08 a mea culpa--rumor would seem to be true and the report of class conflict would not seem to be the real reason POB wasn't available for an interview.

    Yeah, the word is that he hasn't gotten any reps the last couple of days, and that it's not related to attitude at all. Just that the 'fit' isn't really right for his abilities.

    I would look at the QB's that Oregon had when they were good and then last year the performance McKenzie gave at UCF.

    Really good Qb play

    even if POB leaves, that still leaves too many QBs on the roster who could play QB somewhere.
    why would gebbia or martinez stick around for 3 years watching the other one play?

    He and Gebbia came out of HS with about the same level of hype, and Gebbia in my opinion has lived up to that so far while POB has not. Nothing O'Brien has done on TV to date has wowed me. He's looked like a kid with all the size and a big arm who just doesn't put it all together very often.

    Mostly just throws a pretty good ball, not a great ball. Little wobbly, little behind or a little outside. I just get that feeling from him of his ceiling is being a pretty good pro-style QB. Not a total statue, but he got a lot of yards in HS by being so damn big, you put on his film and you don't go, "Wow, look how elusive he is." You got that square-peg-round-hole feeling when they brought in this offensive system.

    Gebbia came in as a true freshman and jumped off the page at you. Clearly looked like at least the second best QB already after one spring last year. You could make the case, especially in hindsight, for him taking over for Lee were it not for wanting to keep that RS year. Kid looks like he'd blow away down 14th street but can rifle a football and all you hear about him is what a film rat he is and how nobody is gonna outwork him.

    Not a weapon with his legs, either, but he's accurate and he's smart. You can be a bigger asset to an offense executing correctly and throwing accurately than you can if you're a home run threat on your feet and a liability with your arm.

    I hope we have a backup plan to bring in for depth. 3 available QBs is scary thin.

    Well I'm hearing Noah is trying to become eligible to play this year(?). I don't know if this is true or not but if true, I'm guessing it's a long shot(?).
