Gebbia might need to put on another 15 

 

He's already bigger than Milton was at UCF last year.

I'd hardly consider 30 attempts at the college level, with most of those in one game against Minnesota, game experience of any significance that would give him a leg up.

 

It's 30 more attempts, 1 game and 1 more year in the system than Gebbia.

I always thought POB was the better runner, but Gebbia is exactly the type of guy you want running a new offense.  He’s smart, works very hard, is accurate, and makes good decisions.  Considering it’s the first year, and Frost has lots of potential weapons in this offense, I think a guy that can distribute the ball well is big.  I also think Martinez will get some playing time early and may become situational if he performs well.  You need heat on Gebbia (from Martinez), and having him not redshirt gives him valuable experience for next year.  Also, considering the size issue with Gebbia, having at least two good back ups is essential.

Good decisions may be the key. Frost has emphasized turnovers in several comments. I don't think Frost would tolerate 3 ints in a game by any QB.

POB was blackballed by his teammates when he got here. He came in acting like the savior and was immediately shot down. He also didn't take the weight room seriously at all in his first two years. You know who didn't start off this way? Tristan. Langs hinted at Gebbia being second string after spring but that it was in the best interest to redshirting him. That's impressive. If you watch the football come out of each's hand, Gebbia's has more zip. Gebbia is more accurate and there is enough tape to see that. Gebbia's release is elite. Based on what I saw in the UAA game, paired with a year and a half of not throwing the ball, Adrian will not have enough to unseat the other two. If for some reason, the staff elects to go with AM, I would imagine it has everything to do with his legs and the belief that eventually he will come through. I just do not see how he can come in and out-quarterback the other two. To me, its up to Gebbia. If he wants it, he will get the nod.

Definitely have to love the way Gebbia throws the football that's for sure.  Also I'll take accuracy over arm strength any day of the week.

 

I'm not going to worry too much about who our QB is next season though as crazy as it sounds.  I think with Frost and co if one guy isn't really helping NU put points on the board I think unlike previous staff's you will see a change at the position instead of just sticking with the same guy game in game out no matter how average the results are.

where did you get all the bad press on POB? source?.......blackballed by his teammates is a pretty strong statement, seemed to me Lee was Riley's boy.

If there actually is a clean slate POB can be a starter but it's up to him.  Overall, passing and running ability seems to suit him but it depends on his physical status after Duval gets done with him.  His attention to detail with the weight program will help him.  Gebbie too, but his durability may come into play.  Not sure how Coach Frost wants to evaluate the qb's with just his O scheme or overall talent.  Can't wait for the spring game to whet the appetite.

Gebbia is 190+lbs from the sounds of it.  Milton was 170 this last year.  Can we please stop with the durability stuff.

Huskers.com has him listed at 185 but you also have to remember that Gebbia is 6'3.  He's definitely a lot more lean than Milton who's only 5'11.  2 totally different frames.

Hearsay is fun. 

 

facts are better though.  I can make up a 'story I heard' about Gebbia too.  Until it's verified, 2 sources or in print....please stop posting that stuff in a thread like this and post it in the rumor forum.

You think I’m making that up? I personally know former players, Mike Rose being one of them. I live in so cal, worked for a community college football program, have extensive connections in the local coaching community. I have seen those two QBs camp at our school multiple times. Brandon Reilly even went on record saying similar things. So no, I’ll keep that info where it belongs.

YES.

 

and I think you should stop posting it here...there is a forum for it called Rumors.

 

Name dropping on the internet gets you two things, jack and crap...and jack left town.

 

 

See how easy that was?

Name dropping? Get out of here. You sound like a punk. Is it name dropping that Quincy Enunwa goes by “BOBO” and I know that because he’s a family friend? But because you don’t know that, it can’t be true right? None of what I said is a rumor. None of it. What exactly do you want me to give you in terms of proof? I’m the only one who actually has his real name on this board. You could trace me easily. I don’t hide behind much. Want to Dm me on Twitter, IG, Facebook, etc? We can. Should I start a thread in the rumor section just to explain that piece I left? Hell, see if you can find the Brandon Reilly segment with 1620 and you will hear most of it.
