Yeah it was just a joke the whole we're fucked deal. I really hope they don't fall for his bit again this year though. He seems to be good in practice but freaks out in games.

Is anybody other than me a little concerned that Chris Warren is 255?!? 255?!?!?

Yeah I'm not sure how a RB is supposed to be 255. I guess we'll see.

Apparently Collin Johnson stole the show yesterday.

It's not a joke. Either one of the issues.

Watching Jerrod Heard makes my eyes hurt too though.

Honestly if I was in the unenviable position of having to bet my future on one of those kids, I'd have to pick Swoopes. And y'all know I'm not a Swoopes fan.

Herman and Buechele are going to live a luxurious life together. Their championship wall just got ten feet higher.

Humidor saying coaches feel Swoopes in the clear front runner after week one, the players feel like it's Heard. New coaches are impressed with Buechele, but he's not ready.

God help us all if they really fall for this Swoopes looks good in practice bit again. If they do I will provide the booze, bullets, and gun for one of y'all to put me out of my misery the day before football season starts.

Practice reports still have Swoopes as the starter. Can't believe they're falling for this again. Guy must be an all American in practice. Unfortunately we all know what happens when the lights come on, just wish this coaching staff had a better memory.

To be fair, it might just be that he's still terrible - just the best of terrible options.

Possibly, but this feels just like last year where all we heard was about Swoopes looking good in practice only to see it all scraped after week one.

Why didn't we find another QB this off season? (Serious question)

For what it's worth the practice report yesterday was that the defense threw the kitchen sink of blitzes and Buechele looked the best throwing the ball.

To answer your question Robbi that's a great mystery. There were certainly a few good options out there. You'd think even just a decent option would have been worthwhile.

I believe Buechele has said that if they brought anyone else in (Kyler Murray), he would have looked elsewhere.

Ehlinger probably would have, too.

I guess the risk/reward of finding anyone appreciably better than what we have was greater than the prospect of losing one or both of those.

I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of programs out there took 1 qb a class.

That's because the majority of programs have at least one other living, breathing QB on the roster besides the incoming freshman. We don't.

Charlie is going to win six games again, and he will be fired (assuming Boo isn't the outlier freshman impact QB). There is a lesson to be learned here kids ... don't hire a JV staff and then pay zero fucks to the offensive side of the ball for two years.

touche on both points.

That being said, we do have 5 QBs on schollies (trying to keep straight face)... with more help on the way.

If they start Swoopes now they deserve to be fired the day they announce it.

Nobody panic.

But OB just reported a source inside athletic department says Swoopes is viewed as runaway starter at QB.

Okay, maybe panic a little.

Completely confirms Strong's cluelessness though. Stalemate.
