Pantagraph article on QB depth including Jackson WaringQB is good, at least the first team. Rittenhouse looked okay against YSU (still have not watched the SDSU game) and where is Waring? He started a bunch of games last season out of need and was not great but was not terrible. My guess would be Waring will look at the portal. When you are number 2 and get passed by a younger guy in this day and age the trend is to not fight for a position but to move on to supposed greener pastures.
So the QB they recruited and started a bunch of games last year is now the third-team QB behind a walkon and slated to play wide receiver. Yep, that sounds about the way they go about the QB position. Spack loves nothing more than to recruit a QB that he has no intention of playing at QB. Rittenhouse will be a DB by next season just watch!Pantagraph article on QB depth including Jackson Waring
We’re too strong of a program, or we think we’re too strong of a program. I’ll go with the latter.Defense was all over the field most of the 1st half. Though SDSU got smart and took us deep to open things up in Q2, and then the rout was on. but it was a very dominant performance for a while defensively.
SDSU is a very good team in all phases of the game, so the outcome is not surprising considering our offensive personnel. I have to wonder if Wright is still nursing his injuries or not, because he's nto looked himself since he was pulled for the injuries after 1 carry against NDSU. But he did very little against YSU, and SDSU was certaily going to be tougher to get space. But still, Wright doesn't seem like himself.
But my gripe is unchanged .. we have a 3rd or 4th string RS FR QB playing 2nd string. He plays with a lot of heart, but there was only so much he could do out there. So without QB Annexstad and RB Mueller, nor a fully productive RB Wright .. we had no chance. I don't watch enough of every game to really say much more.
So I sincerely hope there is a plan this offseason to let OC Peterson do most of the QB recruitment and start building up our QB room. We are too strong a program to be so sporadic and with no depth at the most important position in the game. Spack needs to recognize his weakness and give the keys to OC Peterson.
The AD ought to help ensure this happens.
Obviously our roster was too thin to absorb many inuries on offense. But my point is we would be going to final 8 more than 4 times in 12 years if we could get some amount of consistency and depth ... not greatness, just pretty goodness ... at the QB position. Some here thinking our #1s have been better overall than I give Spack credit for ... that is debatable, though I maintain my point there regard no HS QB recruit has ever worked out under Spack. But i don't there is any debating we've never had a #2 ready to come in and be ready. What always happens is we are forced to shut down most of the pass play book and be strictly a game manager.We’re too strong of a program, or we think we’re too strong of a program. I’ll go with the latter.
