    Ok, I'm going to jump in here real quick. The updated keyboard function on iPads is trash. It is HORRIBLE trying to type on it. A lot of times you can't see what you're typing. Just saying, that makes sense. Sorry to jump in and extend this convo.

    I wish nothing but the best for Hudson...unless he ends up on a team we play. Then worst of luck for that game.

    You can expect Casey Cain and Jaden Alexis to enter soon, I am hearing.
    I asked my buddy if there was reason for concern. He said he thinks this is a fat-trimming measure for us and a chance to get meaningful playing time for those transfers. He said nobody we're seeing go are players who put in significant playing time. I asked about Johnson (who did have PT this year) and he said there was a reason Brooks was playing while Johnson was not at the end of the season.

    He beat out heir apparent Snead as a redshirt freshman - if memory serves.

    Correct but Snead was a true freshman whereas Colt was a RS freshman.

    Can't argue with anything you stated, but would like to say that I don't think wins and losses are put on one person's shoulders. It's a team effort. The Defenses holds top 5 teams to 20 points or under and we lose, it is the Offense's fault? Offense scores 34 points and we lose, is it the Defense's fault? If you blame the OSU loss on Ewers then you have to blame Card for the TTech loss. Ewers had a bad game and Card had a good game but both lead the team to 34 points and lost.
    We can analyze this to death and use stats to support our sides, but in the end, we are still 8-4 with 2 QBs that have about a year's worth of game time experience each. It's up to them to take the next step and see who improves the most. In my book it's not just them. It's the whole team. I believe Offenses win games but Defenses win championships. We seem to be taking the step in the right direction these last 3 games. I'm looking forward to next year but we ain't back yet.

    And we will never know that Card was a better option than Ewers.  We do know Card struggles with reading beyond his first option, we know he can’t throw the long ball accurately, and we do know he’s accurate on intermediate routes and hits the WRs right on the chest but never leads the receivers.   We know he can run but Sark’s offense is not geared for that?  He also has a much slower reaction time so does his mobility actually help if the oline can’t pass protect in general?  We also know outside of Bama, he didn’t play against the the best defenses in the big 12 and we know he played hurt in all games that he did start.  Lots of unknowns in how he would’ve fared against the tougher defenses and lots of hope he gets better.  Not sure he would’ve won us more games but I can understand if you think he maybe wins the same amount and maybe one more.   We definitely hand off more with him at QB so that could translate to a win.  
     
    What do we have with Ewers?  He was supposed to be accurate with the long ball but isn’t.  He leads receivers on their routes and tries to throw where only they can catch it so if they get bumped or run off route he will look very inaccurate.  This happened.  He can’t read beyond the first read.  While faster at reading plays, he is prone to stupid Brett Favre like mistakes.   He can run but will be rarely asked to.   The upside is probably higher than Card’s but everything has to be working for him to be successful (he’s not one to improvise and make a play out of nothing which Card probably can do better).  The risk in starting him is the larger upside which didn’t play out due to poor pass protection, a QB that looked sluggish if he struggled and seemed like he didn’t care.
    so does Card help us win more games?  It’s a big maybe.  If Ewers had played up to expectations he probably would’ve won us more games.   Will playing Ewers this season likely pay off next season if he goes?  You can also be sure that it will.  
     
    Nothing is certain but seems like it was massive upside and limited downside by playing Ewers and limited upside and limited downside by playing Card with much more upside for next season by riding Ewers and getting him experience.   Yes we are 8-4 and could’ve won more but doubtful we would’ve won more than one more game if Card was there.  And that’s not a given.
    In my opinion, Sark made the right call even though in some of the games I just wanted us to throw a decent pass (mainly Oklahoma State).
