      Well, Clausen just came in, so I'll be interested to see what he can do as the starting QB. I don't expect him to do much considering his arm is pretty sore, but it's still interesting.

      Between Jones and Evans, I'm not sure which I would choose as a starting QB. If the offensive line continues to be dominated like they were today I would expect Jones to start. Evans doesn't seem to go through his progressions very well, and Jones has escapability.

      After seeing Clausen play, I would have to say he would be the best option at starting QB. He makes quick decisions and for a true freshman looks pretty in control. His mechanics are pretty smooth and most importantly he's got a very quick release.

        Here are my thoughts on it after watching the game:

        Demetrius Jones - Future wide receiver. Looked extremely uncomfortable as a passer and looked to run at all times. Questionable arm.

        Evan Sharpley - Looked better than Jones, although that isn't saying much. Throws a nice ball but was indecisive and held onto it too long.

        Jimmy Clausen - Appeared to be on an entirely different level than Jones. Granted it was late in the game and against backups but he showed a strong arm, poise in the pocket and made good decisions.

        I'm not so sure I don't start the next game with Sharpley but it's only a matter of time until it's the Jimmy Clausen show.

          Jones looked alot like he was still in high school. Held onto the ball way too long and danced too much back there, and Georgia's DE's lit him up.

          Sharpley looked good but he doesn't have the zip to be an elite QB. His accuracy was ok but he missed a wide open post route that was an easy 6. Overthrew his receiver by at least two feet. On the out pass he was late and the receiver shoudl have caught it but on that pass you could see he just doesn't have the arm to quite zip it out there.

          Clausen looked the best out there today in my opinion. He throws such a tight spiral and his accuracy was the best today. His mechanics were also terrific and he was the one that was the most calm in the pocket. Clausen will most likely get the nod next week.

            Clausen looked good in this game. Good pocket prescence, strong arm even with the surgery and those rumors, good accuracy. The OL needs to get much better, I think this unit is even worse than last years...

              Oh my God. The O-line was so pitiful, it wasn't even funny. The defense gave up tons of big plays. Demetrius looked awful, and I'm not sure he knows how to throw. Clausen was the only positive this game. He threw the ball well, and while I have no idea how he'll work as a field general, he can throw it with the best of them.

                I might just start Clausen next game.Sharpley telegraphs to much.

                  Im a huge ND fan, but honestly does it even matter who is going to start next week? We are in some big $hit this year. Jones was a mess, Evan was getting pressured way to much, and Claussen.... Well just start Claussen. WTF do we have to lose?

                    Aw, Scott copied my analysis, heh - just kidding.

                    I think if Clausen's arm isn't sore he ends up getting the start.

                    Michigan State might actually be a tough game for ND. MS had a killer run game the other night.

                        I'd start Clausen. Your team is going to suck anyway this year, why not let Clausen play? Get some experience, take his shots, and gain a rapport with the young receivers. You're looking at 3 wins tops in the first 8 either way, take the freshman.

                          yeah clausen should start. i didnt even know he was fit enough to play but my friend told me played at the end of the game. i missed that. ND might as well let him get adjusted

                            After watching Saturday's game, Clausen should definitely start because Jones and Sharpley suck. I was really high on Jones because dual threat quarterbacks are so valuable on this level, but its obvious from Weis' playcalling that Jones is not a dual threat and Sharpley is the reincarnation of Pat Dillingham.

                            Might as well let Clausen take his lumps against USC and PSU, hopefully get 6 wins and lead us to a minor bowl victory (I know its a stretch).
