    They probably cheer for him to fail, so they can say "I told you."

    The reality is he hasn’t shown anything that shows he’s a SEC caliber starter

    Same with Miller

    But I’m rooting for them and I hope one of them makes a huge leap

    Has he taken a snap for an SEC team yet? Again, I will reserve judgment till I see how he performs with our players and with our coaches. Players can improve and grow with the right scheme and development.
    I, like you, hope he does well and will support him and our team/coaches..Go Gators!

    He has years of starting experience. The book is pretty much written. He has AR passing with Tom Brady running.

    His running won’t change but hopefully he dramatically improves as a passer

    Well buddy, “rooting for them” includes not posting about all their flaws and even occasionally saying something positive about them

    This is your idea of “rooting for him”?

    So the book is written on Mertz but AR is going to thrive in the NFL? I mean you're adamant we got AR all wrong and that it was Napier who held him back with his offense but Mertz is just Mertz? And I realize that example is flawed since you're not a fan of Napiers offense but regardless of how you feel Wisconsins offense was horrific by all accounts.

    This board would have died laughing at the notion driskel would throw for 4000 yards, 27 TDs and 8 picks. Don't care that it was at LA Tech. He made it in the league for a decade now

    So what you are saying is that no one can improve? Or develop with different coaches...

    I agree. I put these in a Swamp Gas thread discussing next season and Mertz.

    There is a disconnect between where he was coming out of high school and the many schools offering him and what he has shown so far at Wisconsin with different OCs and QB coaches every year. I think he has a high ceiling.

    I think Oregon fans were happy with Bo Nix this past year and who in the SEC would have gave him a chance?

    Maybe if we don’t ask him to carry our offense, he can “manage” it.
