Huskers looking to add grad transfer at QB?

Recommended Posts

LSU is interesting. They produce a lot of nfl talent at the skill positions yet they always suck on offense. Maybe burrow and an offensive coordinator that puts them in space would work.

I haven't seen Burrow explicitly demand a guaranteed starting spot. However, I think some casual reading between the lines of what he has said helps paint the picture of what he's trying to do.

 

Quote

Although coach Urban Meyer didn't declare a front-runner for the job, both he and Burrow admitted decisions would need to be made. After passing for 238 yards and two touchdowns in the spring game, Burrow made it clear he wanted a chance to play significantly this fall.

"I didn't come here to sit on the bench for four years," he told reporters in Columbus, "and I know I'm a pretty darn good quarterback. I want to play somewhere."

If he wanted to compete for a starting job somewhere then he would stay at tOSU. Leaving makes no sense for him unless he's going to go somewhere where he's all but assured significant playing time.

From all accounts Burrow is very well liked at OSU by the coaches and players. He just wants to play and he doesn't see a path at OSU. He graduated and has the opportunity to go somewhere else to go to school and play and I don't think anyone blames him. I am sure that OSU would love to have him in the QB room but it didn't work out that way. I don't see anyone blaming OSU or Burrow in this whole thing other than some fans that wanted him to start. Some people just like to make a story bigger than what it actually is and read into something that just isn't there.

Wanting to start doesn't make him a prima donna. And just because he wants to start doesn't mean he's going to demand that a coach promise him the starting job.

If you weren't around for it, people on this very board were pretty disappointed when we whiffed on Burrow back in the day. Basically a legacy guy (Dad played here) out of Ohio that committed to tOSU because we didn't offer, as we preferred another Dual Threat QB that year named Kevin Dillman, who was at one point a five star. Ultimately, injuries among other things dictated his future was not at QB so we listed him as a TE, but Riley & co yanked his scholly when they came in anyway.

 

Now he's at North Texas where he apparently hasn't played.

 

Burrow wanted an offer here that never came because we had Dillman.

 

Thank goodness we don't have Tim Beck evaluating QBs anymore. It would be awesome if Burrow transferred here.

it would also be awesome if we had a QB room that the coaches and players were happy with and we decided to add 1 or 2 new members next season - oh wait, we have that.

Oh man, I forgot about him!  Now he is a D-End and never plays...that is crazy.

Such an easy thing to say in May.

They had an offensive coordinator that could do just that, and they fired him after one year. The administration there is a total joke right now. So happy it seems like we finally fixed that problem here.

Yep.

I trust Frost's judgment on this (if Burrow is even interested), but I don't think any of us know if what we have is good enough to not look into transfer QBs. We only have our suspicions.

I like what we have.

 

 

And they’ll add more in the next couple years. No rush.

LSU is one of the great 'what ifs' in CFB to me.  They consistently churn out elite level talent and have one of the most fertile recruiting grounds to choose from that they have a near monopoly on due to the lack of other big time colleges in the state.  How they were able to never, ever, ever land a QB is absolutely befuddling to me.  If Saban had stayed at LSU (not likely due to the absolute clown shoe administration that another poster mentioned) he could've put together a run equal if not better than what he's done at 'Bama.

Ya, Joe Alleva is dumbass. Who hires the guy behind the Duke Lacrosse scandal? F King Alexander does. 

 

I know a bunch of LSU fans aren't happy with O. I'm just happy that we don't suck, the tides can turn almost instantly in college football, you can become irrelevant in like one season.

 

F King and Joe Alleva need to go.

 

As far as getting and developing a QB. Miles had a great plan that went to crap with Ryan Perrilloux. 5 star #1 dual threat qb looked to be the next great one in his limited time. Miles kicked him off the team because he was an idiot. Ever since then it seemed our QB development was always playing catch up having to play young guys before they were ready.

Actually under the current circumstances this would be easy to say all 12 months of the year. Do you see something in what i said changing over the next several months - maybe you know something that the rest of us don't?

Huh?

 

He's saying it's easy to say in May that your QBs are good. They're not actually playing actual games. We heard all spring and summer that Lee was going to be really good. It was easy for people to say it then. Much harder when he was throwing pick sixes.

 

Obviously something could change in what you're saying, as soon as September, if our QBs play horribly. Then I'd wager the coaches and players wouldn't be happy with the QB room. Much harder to say you're happy with the QBs when they're playing badly in games.

Had our QBs played poorly in the spring game, our fan base would likely be singing a different tune. However, we had three that had solid games -- hopefully not because our defense is poor. LSU's QBs, on the other hand, all played poorly in their spring game... then again, their defense is much better than ours. Orgeron also knows that he has to win NOW -- the fans are already calling for his head. He can't afford to have a lackluster season. Frost has as much time as he needs.

Hear what you are saying - and it is possible that all three QB's tank.  I didn't say anything about the QB play being good or bad.  This is a team sport and we will not live and die by one player.

Wonder how Ohio State feels about him playing for another team in Ohio? Cincinnati isn't in the same conference, though, so maybe no big deal.

Kevin Dillman is still one of the weirdest recruiting stories I can remember at DONU.

I am pretty sure that Ohio State coaches, players, and fans don't care one iota about Cincinnati.

They will in 2019. But yes, in general, Ohio State doesn't care if one of their ex players goes to UC. I think Urban has a good relationship with Fickell and there have been a couple players that left OSU and transferred to UC.

Well, Luke Fickell coaches there, so they might have some feelings about Cincinnati.

At least they got a QB from Ohio State this time and not Purdue.
