    I didnt watch Jurgens much. Obviously noticed the bad snaps. But hes a RS frosh. We'll see.

    For my admittedly very untrained eyes, I more-so noticed Farniok at RT. BRUTAL.

    Great, getting pushed around like a rag doll continues.

    It definitely was Frost's reasoning for him not playing the second half...

    It should have been obvious that moving a TE recruit to the Center position is a project no matter how athletic the player. The only question is whether Jurgens will progress fast enough to not be a liability during conference play.

    I agree. It seems like they're expecting too much from Cam right now. He needs more time to develop his overall game before being thrown into a starting job. Those bad snaps really had a trickle down effect on the offense today. Having said that, Martinez played awful today. Maybe there's something wrong? He looked slow and held onto the ball way too long. Really weird and unexpected. CU has a terrible defense so if we see an offensive performance like this next week it could be a long season. I don't think the Buff's will turn it over 5 times.

    Understatement. One of those horrific snaps could be enough to cost us a game against a decent opponent.

    Look, I know he struggled today but lets not forget that he was playing in his 1st game in almost 2 years at a position he’s never played before. Cam is gonna be a great player in time, but probably won’t be an all- american this season. Goodness, it took 7 weeks to get a W last season and we are already 1-0 alter week 1.

    I'm not picking on Cam for he cant insert himself in to the game. He wasnt ready and we all knew it. Shouldve been eased in during the second qrt for a few series. This was a coaching error.

    I think part of this is people really don’t blame him, just question why he was out there already

    Is that on the coaches or the guys competing for the position?

    I dont understand the question? The only ones that make the call are the coaches. How did you think Farniok performed? Better or worse?

    The question is, “can we afford to have him start while he learns how to play center?”

    You bring up a good point he has not.been in a game for 2 years. Maybe he needs a little more time in practice to learn the position and get used to the contact. He look lost out there and abused.

    I’m sure Colorado will take it easy on him considering it will only be his second career game at center.

    The question was pretty direct. It’s not a black and white scenario when we are playing South Alabama to open the season either. Who is going to be better long term?

    Snaps obviously are a fundamental job requirement for center.

    But so are making line calls and completing blocks.

    Re calls and blocks, did anyone see enough to draw a contrast?

    He will be fine. I have faith in him being as dominant once he is a veteran OL in the big10. He is a pup still. Do I want to win every game yes....but we are a very young team.

    Better. Actually moved his feet. And the snaps were good. Cam is not ready. The guards did not play well either

    I will assume Cam BUT, a new position, a project, nothing is guaranteed. They named him starter before Spring started. I didn't understand that. Long term doesnt matter. This week matters. Just reiterating he shouldn't have started this ballgame.

    Wasn't Cam almost a 5 star athlete? He did not look like it today. Why all the high snaps?

    Calls no. Blocks, to my untrained eye, go to Farniok...

    This is coming from someone that is pulling hard for Cam.

    Both players are the same age and Will proved he is stronger at blocking and a better snapper. Don't understand all the praise heaped on CJ and throwing little willy under the bus. Willy proved today he was the right choice.

    CJs performance reminded me of Gates in the bowl game, just humiliated

    Snaps by Farniok were far better. Timing of the whole play starts there. Want to watch replay and see if the snaps on our first TD were all good. Bad snaps set the tone of making Martinez uncomfortable all day.

    Well it took all of one game to find a new whipping boy. A Freshman in his first game is now a bust.

    Just might need more data to reach any conclusions but not on RSS. The over reaction on here is legendary.

    He snapped it better for sure. As far as how he played i cant really say. If im being honest we sucked both halves running the ball so im not sure if he was better or not.

    If he snapped it better, then he should start. Need to get the snap perfect before you can block

    Seems like given a choice between potential in the future and the player someone is currently, the staff is going to go with developing potential more often than not.

    I do think it’s good he got this game action going forward for depth purposes. He’s gonna have to take some lumps at some point getting used to meaningful O-line game action so might as well be now

    Nothing I was impressed with. I actually thought we were getting better push with Farniok.

    For those of you talking potential I hope you realize 2 bad snaps can easily lose the ballgame next week.

    You could tell that Will has been playing O-line for years and not months.

    Tough to grade without the coach's video. I guess I thought it was tough to see all that much when the whole O line appeared to be getting pushed backwards. Hopefully IF it's fairly obvious when they look at the film they adjust the plan. It took half the year and a season ending injury last year to move Farmer to center, so I'm not optimistic.
