Ketch has more subscribers than all the other sites combined. Maybe the other guys should think about doing that.

In all seriousness, Anwar Richardson is better at his job than Charlie Strong is, so I know where I'm leaning on this.

All the other sites don't eat all meals at Pluckers.

Those combos are expensive.

Guys, after that press conference, the odds that Swoopes is the starter for Notre Dame went up considerably. But maybe Charlie was just click baiting.

:lol:

On getting closer to announcing the starting quarterback: Today wasn't a fair evaluation from either one, so really we haven't even sat down and thought about it. I think that even when we decide, we'll give it to the team. I can't let Notre Dame know it.

Look I'm as against the Swoopes idea as you are here, but come on. This is so far from what he said today.

I agree that if he lets Swoopes take the field in anything more than the 18 wheeler package he should be fired immediately, but let's wait until he actually makes that mistake.

Y'all really want to fire him "immediately" if he starts Swoopes over the true Freshman ?

I don't know what I think, really. But I've been surprised how fired up this has gotten a lot of people.

Mine is a litter sarcastic, but we know what Swoopes is so no I don't want him starting over a true freshman.

I called Jeremy crazy when he told me that we might start a freshman. No chance Charlie would do that.

The few things that I've read say it's going to happen.

You'd be 10X crazier to trot Swoopes out there again

Agree. I would think Heard would be the choice.

I have to win this year to keep my job. I don't think Heard can get us there either but I would think it would give him the best shot.

I'm personally rooting for the freshman to try and improve our chances in the next few years.

I think moving Heard to WR is a pretty clear signal he won't play QB in the opener, or any other game.

I understand that coach Strong has moved Heard to WR. I'm just saying that if I were in his position and needed to win 8 or 9 games to keep my job, breaking in a freshman QB wouldn't be my first choice.

Out of a lot of really shitty options, I would think Heard would give us the best chance to win as many games as possible this year.

Don't get me wrong, as a fan I prefer to play the freshman because it sets us up for longer term success with the new HC.

IT is now also on the Swoopes is most likely to start train. Saying they're both pretty much even and both will play, but that Strong feels more comfortable putting Swoopes out there. In other words, we're fucked. Sounds like double booking this hunting trip may have been a blessing in disguise.

Horns 247 also now reporting they expect Swoopes to start despite all teports they have received saying Boo is worse case even but in most cases ahead of Swoopes in practice. So pretty much like originally stated in the first post of this thread.......WE'RE FUCKED!

I posed this question on IT the other day......so you're starting Swoopes because you're worried about Boo in that pressure situation? Well what happens when you get typical Swoopes? What happens when he comes out and the lights are too bright and he leads you to 2-3 drives of 3 and out, or worse yet turns the ball over? What happens if as a result your defense gets gassed in the 1st quarter and its 14-0 or 10-0 Notre Dame? You'll have all of DKR turned against you, and then you want to put Boo in? Isn't that a 10X more pressure packed situation being down 2 scores and having to be the "hero"?

OB quadrupled down on the contrary, but then now appears to be waffling.... Ketchum explains how they got the story right and if Buechele starts its because the starter changed but they were right all along regardless.
