North Western has a history of not preparing athletes for college. Like, a TON of them.
After watching Bailey break his leg against Akron, I don’t blame him!
Edwards stays because he has 1st round potential at 6’3” and 220lbs. He has to get faster and have a consistent year making big catches, like that kid from TAMU. If the 4th round was his ceiling (e.g. Pharoh Cooper and Bruce Ellington), then he goes to save some wear and tear on his body.
If he stays until he gets a Broyles award, which is likely coming next year, his monetary value is twice what it is today. He should go the Kirby route. So long as we’re getting the right players in (in coming QB was just named National Player of the Year by Columbus, OH Touchdown Club) and we’re getting better he should stay put and let his value continue to increase.
He makes $750K right now but that’s getting doubled up in January if Champ knows what’s good for him.
Good gawd I hope he stays put. Pay the man. First year OC doing damage like this is valuable. Pay the man.
Back to your hole in the ground troll! We’ll see you soon enough and when Champ has a 3- n 4- star squad bussin that @$$ you’ll be pissy.
The defense was terrible in all honesty... but why do you think Florida ran the ball 62 times? They weren’t trying to be balanced, they were trying to win. If they were balanced they lose that game. This is where being stubborn with the run killed us. Jake was slicing and dicing this defense all first half so we go away from it for the sake of balance. Even if we keep scoring and putting a gassed defense on the field we still score and win the game. Stop playing to be balanced. In the words of the immortal Herm Edwards... “PLAY... to WIN.. THE GAME”!!!
Defense was undermanned due to injuries. Why did we go away from the passing plays on 1st and 2nd in the 2nd half?! THATS what cost us the game. Staying stubborn with the run when it obviously wasn’t working.
It, literally, says in the article where he thinks the 9 wins will come from. You’re a terrible troll.
Kid is a baller but with all the 6’4” WR’s we keep playing he’s having to play out of position at S and Nickle.
Gamecock fans will make more of this than we should. These kids are different. You wouldn’t see anything like this during or before the early 2000’s but, again, these kids are different. This isn’t an issue. #SpursUp
We were gunning for Kirby at the time. That’s when your AD fired CMR and went after Kirby. It was a no brainer as Kirby was NOT going to take us over UGA. UGA is the best job in all of college football.
Best of luck to the young man, whenever he lands!
I said the same thing. We are way too inconsistent for a team that is loaded with Juniors.
Jake is too emotional. It’s why he’s so inconsistent and at times erratic with his play.
We had 6 drops against UGA, 6 drops against UK, and 6 or 7 yesterday. How many drops did we have against Missouri? I just don’t understand why we can’t TRY Necky again. I don’t understand it. It’s more than stats. He was calm and cooler than the other side of the pillow and it permeates to the rest of the offense. Let Bentley learn how to control his emotions under Necky, then let Bentley ball out in 2019.
He can always get an MBA from Stanford if he really wants a Stanford degree! Go Gamecocks!
I don’t get it either. People are acting like we win a Natty then Spurrier got tired of it all and just decided to quit. Is playing Bentley a head scratcher, to me it is. But that doesn’t mean Champ hasn’t figured out offense. We averaging 9 more points per game this year so far. I just wish Necky would have gotten the starting nod.
I have no idea how Champ still believes Bentley, based on his performance in 2018, gives us the best chance to beat TAMU. Sure Bentley has played some good football for us but he has played some horrible football for us to. If we're taking his entire body of work into consideration why do we overlook his 7 TD / 16 INT ratio against top 25 teams? I have no idea right now. I love Bentley and I think he can be a great QB but right now this ain't it chief. Is Necky the answer? We don't know that. But what we do know is the following about Necky: 1. He was the epitome of a poised QB last week in his first start, in a meaningful game, against an SEC foe 2. He went through his progressions on damn near EVERY pass play (Bentley has locked in to Deebo and Edwards all season long, which causes him to miss open receivers) 3. Necky lead us on a game winning drive with 1:18 left on the clock after a 1.5 hour delay Necky earned the start imho. I think Champ is starting Bentley out of loyalty. Loyalty will be the death of Champs career if he keeps this up. I hope, against everything I've seen out of Bentley in 2018, that I am wrong. I hope that Bentley comes out, throws for 350 yards, 5 TD's, and 0 INT's. But nothing I have seen out of Bentley, in 2018, leads me to believe he is capable of that.
I hope Coastal Carolina Jake Bentley shows up this weekend.
Me neither, which is why I see this as an L for us. Your run game is too good and if we happen to stop it by loading the box, I think Mond is good enough with those receivers to beat us through the are. This is a matchup nightmare for us. We’ll have to play a perfect game to win and this team hasn’t been anywhere near perfect this year.
Been saying this since Saturday. We know Big Game Bentley is likely going to under whelm. We don’t know what Necky will do. We DO know he’ll go through his progressions on damn near every pass play, throw away the ball when needed, not throw into double/triple coverage, and he hasn’t panicked yet. Jake, however, has. And this is not a knock on Jake because he’s a good QB but, all things being equal (Necky gave us just as many passing yards and TD’s as Jake does w/o the INT’s) I’d play my hot handed Senior and RS Bentley if possible. Bentley has the arm, he just needs to fix his mental issues. If he does that he could seriously be great, maybe elite, next year.
I say play Necky. From a statistical stand point he gives you what Bentley gives you by way of completion percentage and yards. From an eye-test view point he gives you a lot of what Bentley doesn’t give you in big games. He goes through his progressions, doesn’t lock in on Deebo and Edwards, doesn’t throw into double coverage, throws the ball away instead of taking sacks. It’s only 1 game but if you don’t play him again you’ll never know. We know Bentley is inconsistent in big games so why not start Necky. If it hits the fan play Bentley. If it doesn’t then ride it out with Necky and RS Bentley. Give him another year with a Warner and more opportunities for competition at the QB position.
This game may get out of hand. Scharnecchia doesn’t have the pocket awareness to win a game imho. Joyner is too green. If it gets out of hand I think we give Joyner a series or two and let Scharnecchia take the L all game. Would rather that for Joyner than him playing a game, not being an all-American, and having fans clamoring for his replacement like we did with a McIlwain. Damn near every freshman QB needs development. All indicators pointer to Joyner being one of those WB’s.
