    Ghost, i see whaere you're coming from nt you take a kid from the sidelines, even if he's good, and you put him in the pressure cooker that is tuscaloosa with a coach that's a control freak. the first time that kid throws an interception, it will be run all day. i agree with you about the september matchup though.

    Yeah...nothing like the same marginal guys back making the same mistakes all over again for another 4 and 8 season.

    Exactly. It isn't like all these guys were going to make all-SEC 1st, 2nd or 3rd team (particularly on offense)..Heck, even honorable mention would be a stretch for a majority of them.

    Yes, because he has great experience in starting games, as opposed to any other QB on the team that doesn't. Returning starters are valuable because they play together as a unit, and get most of the snaps.

    The good thing about our team is that most of the team started games at one time or another. We paid heavily for that experience with the 4-8 season. We have an experienced team returning.

    Well, uh, he started for a full year before that, so yeah.
