One of the Louisiana teams used this last year, then had a lefty and a righty back there at the same time and ran some zone reads with passes coming off of it.
You mean like we did literally all last year? Okay, just checking.
Since we're talking about QBs in this thread and I know you aren't just railing without a point, it must be your argument that we should take our first year starter out of the game as quickly as possible so we can give valuable game reps to the second and third string QBs. Can you name other successful programs that do this with their QBs regularly? So that we can clue Jimbo in to this new theory.

Selective memory is selective.
You mean we didn't play the backups in the games that were close? Why not, I wonder?
In all games we played backups regularly at most every spot other than QB and OL. In all games that were blowouts, we played both second and third teamers. People often complained that we rotated too much at WR, RB, DE, etc. We were thin at corner and safety, and still rotated them a decent amount.
Some people just have a hard on for Jimbo hating. I can't really do much with that. Not saying that's the case with WillyDees, necessarily.
I read the post as emphasizing that we should score more, early, so that more games are blowouts. The "don't take your foot off the gas" theory.
And In the 4th quarter of all those games, EJ is still in. 5th year senior, up 40 points...still in the game.
I wont compare apples to oranges, because many top programs are SEC programs, and dont get to play two FCS teams and a pretty pathetic conference schedule featuring teams like Duke, BC, and Maryland.
2 examples that immediately come to mind are Cole Stoudt of Clemson and Bryan Bennett of Oregon. Hell, I think I rember Kiffin, as dumb as he is, played Whittek in the opener.
Playing in a terrible conference gives us a distinct advantage to get our backup QBs pt. The schedule next year is more than managable, and I hope to see more game reps for the mon starters than we saw from Clint in 2012.
Nope. Im far from a Jimbo hater, but I do think he wasted a ton of opportunity in 2012.
I remember being at a party at my cousins house 3 or 4 years ago w Thad Busby and he said something like he used to root for The offense to drop 35 in one half so he could het out there and screw it up in the second (or something like that).
Ok...here's the deal...what we need is for the Nole QB to exhibit the following mentality and step forward and take charge:
Russell Wilson stated when he took over as Seahawks QB, "I'm gonna fight, every opportunity I get. All I ask for is the ball with two minutes left. I love playing with the game on the line..." As you recall, that same mentality beat us twice when he was with NCSU.
Clearly we can all agree that EJ remained inconsistent all year and needed as many reps in games as possible.
Now that I do agree with. However, I cant understand what a couple of extra snaps doo doo teams is going to accomplish after a 5 yr stint.
I fully expect Clint to start in 2013, and have no issues with that. I just dont want to be up on Wake Forest 38-0 in the fourth Q and seeing valuable game exp go down the drain with Clint handing the ball off to Devonte for 3 straight drives
