Can't wait for a third straight state title.

Giantsfan1080 11-19-2012 10:02 AM

2 more games and we go to our first BCS!!! I can't wait since there's a small chance we can clinch it this week.

Yep. THis will be awesome.

well, not exactly the best scenario for the first start for Wittek.

I can imagine heavy run packages, screens and slants to Marqise Lee

But anyways:

HAHA that was a pretty cool story. Maybe they can pull the upset.

49erNation85 11-19-2012 05:01 PM

A slight chance Florida still plays for the tittle game if ND loses. Is there a miracle ?Also Florida has to beat FSU as well . On a plus note , Driskel is back to practice this week and I hope he starts!!Is it Sat yet ?

This isn't really a discussion for this week, but it will be interesting to see what happens with Gunner Kiel at Notre Dame. He was the top QB in his recruiting class so I doubt he sits around for three years waiting for Golson to graduate. Where might he transfer? Possibly to Indiana?

That is a pretty interesting sidenote. I think Golson is pretty much a game manager type QB and Kiel has potential as the kind of QB that can really elevate that offense. Wasn't he originally supposed to end up at Indiana?

His recruitment and the way he handled it rivaled Willie Williams or Fred Rouse. He committed to IU, seemingly out of family guilt, decommitted, committed to LSU and was supposed to enroll early, never showed up and finally enrolled at Notre Dame last minute. Add to that he was one of the most overrated prospects in a long time, at camps he looked decent, but well behind other QBs and his HS stats given the level of competition left a lot to be desired.

******* Fred Rouse. I met that guy at the first ACC Championship Game. I had such high hopes for him and he just flushed it down the toilet.

Also, Jeff Tedford got fired. Not really surprising. In the last six years, he's 39-37 and hasn't finished higher than 4th in the conference.

Im very curious to your reasoning behind this statement because i think its about as far from the truth as possible

Hmm well ND is certainly not a dynamic offense - Golson has been pulled in favor of Tommy Rees in critical times of games a couple times this year. ND is at 11-0 because Golson has limited turnovers and mistakes. Mistake free football, good defense and some luck are why ND is 11-0. Golson is a game manager type QB.

draftguru151 11-21-2012 09:27 AM

He's also a redshirt freshman.

49erNation85 11-21-2012 11:33 AM

USC better win dam it. Anythng could happen

So is Johnny Football but that doesn't seem to be slowing him down.

draftguru151 11-21-2012 01:09 PM

I believe they call that an outlier.

SolidGold 11-21-2012 01:39 PM

Mannion, Brett Smith and Bridgewater both played well as true freshman. Mariota is playing well as a true freshman. Hundley is playing well as a RS Freshman. These are all guys who are catalysts for the offense.

Golson is a nice game manager type player. He is efficient but not the focal point of the offense.

draftguru151 11-21-2012 02:40 PM

At this point I agree he isn't the focus of the offense, but saying he's a game manager type going forward doesn't really make much sense to me. He's obviously not on the level of those guys ATM, but he's a really good athlete with a great arm and some upside. I really liked Kiel coming out, but Golson could be a great player in that offense in the future.

that the staff has been holding Golson back doesnt mean he is a game manager in skillset. Also calling ND "not a dynamic offense" is flat out wrong. Its not played aggresively outside of the fourth quarter against pitt because it didnt have to but its build to attack you in a ton of different ways. Basically what im trying to say is that I disagree with about everything youve posted on the subject, Golson is a playmaker thats just been held back in an attempt to mature without hurting the team too much.
