In baseball when the starting pitcher struggles you don't have him out there throwing ball after ball well with a starting quarterback when he can't hit get the ball to our receivers maybe its time to go to the bullpen.
I was all for arnaud getting his shot to prove he can throw like we hoped but it just doesn't seem like he's got that capability.
Its also week four of the season. There is plenty of time to salvage those stats.
It would be very, very rare for a RS senior quarterback to improve dramatically during the games of his last season. At this point, generally one either has what it takes, or he doesn't.
Ben Bruns said it very well in his article today. ISU's offense has to lead the team in order for ISU to have hope to win. The status quo will not cut it. The QB play is just one aspect of the problem, yet it is a key aspect.
Some people are good in practice, but drop off in games. Some people who don't look that great in practice can turn it on in games. And for many, what you see in practice is what you get in the games.
3-4 games down the road, if it appears that AA's play is not where it needs to be for ISU to win, there is no point to continue on with him starting without at least seeing what Tiller or whoever is next in line can do under game conditions. Tiller is now a sophomore. Since there is often improvement from freshman to sophomore year, it doesn't seem reasonable to characterize Tiller's abilities by what he did last year, as many here are doing.
