How could you have a good feeling about Todd after watching him screw up passes that my 14 year old niece can make. yeah yeah blah blah bad shoulder....we shall see soon enough if he has what it takes.

And my money says he doesnt and neither does kodi.

Blogger Nooj4AU(qualify tyrick!) said...

I just dont see why some of you want Todd to start, the kid cant get it done.

We are most likely gonna suck this year anyway so why not give caudle(a jr) or Rollison the reigns and get them experience for the future instead of letting Tony Todd throw ducks all year and then be right back where we are know next season?

4:29 PM  
Blogger Nooj4AU(qualify tyrick!) said...

now not know...sorry

4:30 PM  
Blogger Nooj4AU(qualify tyrick!) said...

True we have a different teacher but......

Why not prepare for the future test now rather than drag it out to next year?

Todd will be gone,Rollison would still not have game experience and we will be right back in the same boat.

And Todd sucks(lets not forget this valid point)

4:33 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Nooj ...

I'll say this ... if Caudle were Mr. Thing ... he would have played more by now.

I partially agree with you ... let's see how Tyrik does because I have a suspicion he's our more talented QB on campus.

But dismissing Todd without seeing how his shoulder is, just to give Caudle a chance, well, that's where you and I depart on this one.

4:34 PM  
Blogger weagle83 said...

I kind of lean toward Caudle but everyone seems to say Todd's arm strength is back. He did make some decent decisions last year but he tended to hold the ball too long.

4:35 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Hmmm, Nooj...where you around when everyone said Jason Campbell sucked and couldn't get it done? I was. I'm not cheering for anyone in particular to win the job this year. I just don't know how you know with such certainty that Rollison or Caudle is the answer.

4:35 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Nooj Tyrik qualified.

4:38 PM  
Blogger Nooj4AU(qualify tyrick!) said...

Good point Jet. But my thing is this.

None of them are Mr. Anything and they have proved this time and again.

Im no expert but I do know that Rollison is in a whole other league as far as upside and talent than all the rest combined.

So.....I expect to see Neil or Rollison play most of our games.

Why play Todd....he certainly has not seperated himself from the rest like you say about neil and at least neil has 2 more years. Caudle or Rollison=prepare for the future.

The future is now!

4:38 PM  
Blogger Nooj4AU(qualify tyrick!) said...

Yes I was living in AU during the Cambell thing.Im not saying I wont support whomever the coaches choose.

Just saying that why not play someone that is going to be here for a while if they are all equal in talent?

Tyrick qualified??? This is GREAT news Monica....thank you for that!

4:40 PM  
Blogger weagle83 said...

The exciting thing is, no matter who is QB, the OL has beefed up and experienced and we have some receivers that look to be capable.
That's a big + from last yr.

4:41 PM  
Blogger Nooj4AU(qualify tyrick!) said...

Not to mention I could go the rest of my life without seeing TOdd run the QB option handoff thingy with a straight face and act like he is a threat to keep the ball! That was painful.

"Im no expert but I do know that Rollison is in a whole other league as far as upside"

Rewind 365 days, replace Rollison with Burns. Same story, different name.

Your comments on Todd are based on a guy who had shoulder issues last year. Are they fixed? Who knows? However while you are saying you are no expert, you are posting as if you know how everything will play out.

Until proven wrong, I'll trust that this staff knows who the right guy will be and that person will get a chance to prove it on the field. Right now we don't know what we have with any QB except for maybe Burns since we've seen him play while he was healthy and that's not too impressive.

4:49 PM

Rollinson will not start a game this year.

5:03 PM  
Blogger Aeronaut said...

Nooj.

If this coaching staff thinks that Rollison is ready ( age : 17 ) and strong enough ( height 6 ft 2, weight 185 lbs ) to face SEC defenses behind our OL, they will put him in play.

If they think it might be like throwing him to wolves, they won't. I am sure coaches would keep that in consideration, lest he hurts himself because he tries too hard and is not ready for it.

I think JGT is referring to misspellings (Rollinson vs. Rollison), not who is starting. If so, JGT, just be glad Blake Field(s) is not around to be one of the contenders.

5:17 PM

I think JGT was telling someone the spelling of the word / name, and not who the starting QB is going to be.

It's either that, or wishful thinking on my part.

Blogger AUBigCat said...

I say start Rollison is we plan to run an 80/20 run/pass offense. Otherwise, we run the risk of getting the young fella hurt physically and crushing his confidence early. Ease him into his role. Give these coaches time to build up depth at OL to give him the tools to succeed.

5:55 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

They brought him in at QB a lot early on ('81 or so) and I believe that's what he was considered at the time. Regardless of that, if he did come in, you always knew he was going to run around right or left end.

i find it comical how some are saying rollison is clearly the best or most talented. Im sorry, but have you guys been able to see video that to date no one else but the coaches have seen? pure speculation based on no factual evidence.

5:58 PM

Spongeworthy speaks the truth.

5:59 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

The only factual evidence you have to compare is take Burns/Todd/Caudle's past performances vs well nothing, because nobody knows about Rollison yet.

That being said, it's almost even money when you look at it that way.

6:03 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

furthermore, if we are about to redshirt a few older receivers so we can play our freshmen, then we are really going to suck. after 4 days of practice, our 17 yr olds are that good? I think that says a lot about whats on the field right now more than how good our freshmen are.

6:03 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

Nooj, assuming an injured Todd plays like a healthy Todd doesn't make a lot of sense. He looked very good early. Todd's situation has definitely changed with the surgery so it is to be seen how he plays. It was clear he made good decisions last season, even when he couldn't make the throws.

I do believe a healthy Kodi would look like a healthy Kodi though.

6:04 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Burns is also highly talented. Todd was also a highly ranked recruit out of high school. Mosely is a "winner".

Picking Rollison out of the pack is a little premature.

6:05 PM

ill agree with that war. not saying what we have is great, but we dont really KNOW just yet. we better hope that we only have to play a few young guys.

i cant believe there were so many kids in the tub instead of practicing the last few day. and we werent even in the pads yet. NOT a good sign.

6:11 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

Big Cat made the best point here. I have no problem with Rollison playing, but bringing him along slowly just like Meyer did Tebow makes much better sense. Remember when Tebow was behind Leak? Who was the most talented? You go with experience.

Todd has shown good decision making ability which is more important than passing or running ability. It is what I look for in a QB. This is not just my opinion. Malzahn has said he is impressed with Todd's knowledge of the game.

Todd's shoulder is different, so you cannot judge his passing based upon last season. We will see how it goes. He is they guy that nearly beat our Graham Harrell. There was a large contingent of the Texas Tech fans that favored Todd.

If Rollison were to start the first game I would assume that Chizik is counting this as a rebuilding year. I am not ready to count this team out yet.

6:15 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

And Todd was not as highly rated coming out of high school as Caudle or Burns. Caudle and Burns just have not lived up to expectations.

6:16 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

the big negative about todd is that we start over again next year. i am ok with that, but it may be better long term to put a guy in that will at least give you two years.

6:18 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Sponge, unfortunately, the game I remember best from that year was the IB, with the Bahr getting number 315 against. All year long I had been afraid it would be against us, and d*%# if it wasn't. At least we gave them a good game. Seems like we were up at halftime and maybe even later in the game. Anyhoo, I do have decent memories of beating Florida that year. We also beat LSU, but I don't remember that very well. I guess 'cause they weren't a big rival back then.

6:18 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

recall that last year, todd wouldnt let go of the ball. held it way too long. hopefully that was because he knew he couldnt make the throws but just sayin.

6:19 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

FYI: Burns, of all people, was working as the No. 1 Wildcat guy today.

6:19 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

Sponge, I agree. It is very important this season that we get some experience for someone other than Todd. It will also help him in terms of not getting beat up. There have been too many games where we could have gotten a backup QB experience and didn't.

6:20 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

Burns as the wild cat QB wouldn't make a lot of sense unless he is going to play another position. One of the keys to the wildcat is that the QB becomes another receiver which the defense must cover and you basically have another runner as the QB.

6:22 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

scott. i dont remember a lot of those games. probably more due to the rum and coke, the standard drink of the day in 81. i believe we gave uat a good game until bear put linnie patrick in after halftime. wasnt his first touch about a 50 yard td run. anyway, i think that was the game.

6:23 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

jay can you say transfer....burns....if he doesnt start? cant see him happy as a wildcat. agree, also that we need a stronger runner in that position.

So, Burns is the #1 RB that can throw the ball :)!!!!!!!!

6:25 PM

eddie. can he throw it? if he could would be be a wildcat?

6:27 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Rollison will play this year. I know I started the Rollison Express, (Thanks Nooj for purchasing your general cabin seat Ticket), but I would really like to see him play significant snaps each and every game and ease his way into the starting roll. I do think he will start a game this fall.

6:29 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I think he will be as effective throwing the ball as Ronnie Brown is for the Dolphins. ;)

6:29 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

Unless Burns were in the offense regularly at another position, him coming into the game would be a signal that we were going to run the wildcat. It would harken back to the days of Baby Bowden when anytime we went into the shotgun meant we were going to throw. It could have been more obvious if they put it on the jumbo tron, but I think every opponent already new it, so it was pointless.

6:31 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

i hope he is that good eddie. just need to see it myself before declaring him defacto starter. If he is as talented as some say, he may very well be the best long term solution. sure wish trotter hadnt gotten hurt.

6:31 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

Eddie, I am with you on this. I would even like to see Malzahn tell whoever the starter is that Rollison will come in and lead a series or two. It doesn't mean they are changing QBs. It just means they want an experienced backup.

Spongeworthy- I'm declaring him defacto starter, i'm just saying he will play and I have it from 2 pretty good sources that indicate that, and one has done so since the Spring Practice concluded. I just hope they work him in and get him reps slowly.

disappointing loss in azteca today. really wanted that one. i would lean towards todd starting. if his shoulder hasn't improved, they should be wasting practice time on him.

My head is about to explode from wondering who will be the starter at QB
I wish the coaches would give us a riddle that, when we figured it out, would contain a clue as to who they might leaning towards

7:05 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Sponge, you may not see this, but I had to youtube that '81 IB. We were up 17-14 with about 12 minutes left in the 4th. Bendross and Patrick killed us after that.
Btw, Lionel James. George Peoples and Al Del Greco accounted for AU's points.

LOL I like your idea Snow

Just a thought, but maybe the coaches know who the starter is going to be(Todd IMO) and by playing the two freshmen, were actually looking to see how Rollison handled things for more than a few snaps in a row.

I think it is Todd and then Rollison as #2 and Rollison will play a good but by the end of the 4th game and could possibly be the starter by the end of the season. You know, just use Todd t oget you through the early part of the season and give Rollison some playing time as the season progresses and then we have someone with experience for 2010.

What do you guys think of that?

Will it be too late at about 6:15pm CT on September 5th to turn in my answer for the first games starting QB?

wtc, I made that call over a week ago. I also predicted Kodi as a situational player and Caudle moving to slot and Wildcat (least likely to happen).

7:16 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

I will give you credit then NOVA. I think that is the way it plays out.

7:20 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Are there really that many original opinions of what's going to happen?

7:22 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Naw, we're all just repeating the same opinions from spring.

7:27 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

just making sure. :-P

7:30 PM  
Blogger BinOBA said...

I still say kodi sees the field in the slot, that's about it for him. I think it's todd or caudle, if tyrik beats them out, good for him, i hope he wins em all. Destin trip sucked, rained about an hour into our water parkin so we went to the gulfarium and watched the dophins jump and stuff, kiddo had a great time, that's what it was all about.

I am really sick of QB conjecture. Some decisions will have to be made by next week, right, RIGHT?!?!

7:36 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

ehyou- We should hope so. On a non-QB note, it sounds like Onterio McCaleb is tearing it up this fall. I wonder just how big his role will be this fall.

7:40 PM  
Blogger snowhare said...

Ehyou I agree. Unless there is some sort of "surprise attack" madness going on here, it's gotta be worked out within the next week and a half.

7:40 PM  
Blogger snowhare said...

And I can't wait a week and a half.

7:44 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I think the top 2 will become apparent in the next several days.

7:46 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Some have to start getting more snaps than others.

7:47 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

And just because decisions are made doesn't necessarily mean that we'll know what they are.

7:48 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I'm hearing reports that Tyrik did look the best yesterday. This QB race is going to be darn interesting. I look forward to the year that we don't wonder who the QB will be and hopefully that year is next year!

7:48 PM

Any suggestions on getting tix to LSU game other than E-bay?

I don't want to hear anything about Rollison on the podcast.

Nothing that doesn't involve a gun.

And I've heard you need one just to attend a game in Baton Rouge.

If you're a fan of the opposition.

7:56 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Steve, the QB doesn't have to be a receiver in the wildcat...in fact the regular QB doesn't even have to be on the field.

7:56 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

ehYou- you will have to tune and see. We go live in a minute!

7:59 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I hope Tyrik looked good. He was going against the second team D, and we all know how deep the defense is this year.

8:02 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

The tale is in the numbers:

Series participated in yesterday:

Caudle- 2
Burns- 2
Todd- 2
Mosely- 1
Rollison- 6

Blogger patdyeswildturkey said...

when was the practice tonight? but growing up around my dad as a football coach i know things in football practice arent always on time, especially afterwards

8:32 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I think the coaches played the young guys more overall because that's who they needed to see and who needed to experience game conditions.

I'd be more convinced if that was the ratio of practice snaps.

Is there a worse movie than Smoky and the Bandit 3, its on one of the HBO channels and its sooo bad even Burt REynolds turned it down, he only makes a 1 minute cameo

Jay G- We are live from inside the practice and Chizik has us silenced.

Jay G.,

Blogtalkradio.com infrastructure is not 100% reliable from time to time.

Many times the live feed is "fuzzier" than the podcast.

8:38 PM  
Blogger patdyeswildturkey said...

Ok I thought of a movie worse than that, any version of Iron Eagle after the first one. Sad thing is Louis Gossett Jr was in all of them.

8:39 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Smokey 3 was awful. Bad movies are like a train wreck for me - I know I shouldn't look, yet I can't help it.

Kirk- It's a UT ring. I think maybe a 2004 ring, that is the only type championship he was there for, an Eastern Div. Championship.

9:13 PM

no way. It's a secret decoder ring.

In the video, does K Burns come off like he is defeated. It sounds like he is whining a bit with the, it's tough to get a rhythm, blah, blah stuff. It just sounds like he knows he is the odd man out.
