I don't think Herman played Arnaud out of any sense of loyalty. He was inarguably the best option we had the past 2 years.Quote:
And this is why Tiller is not going to be the starter. Herman was kind of stuck playing Arnaud. He inherited a player that not only was a returning starter, but also a team leader and local boy. No way does Herman sit AA. But after two years, Herman has lost his "wonderkind/genius" image and honestly, his seat is starting to warm up. You can't win with an offense that's the worst in the conference 3-4 straight years. So, does anyone really believe that if Herman is going down, he's going down with a QB that doesn't fit his offense? He might have been stuck starting Arnaud (not that there was anyone better on the roster), but should he have any loyalty to Tiller? I think that after two years, he's going to go to war with HIS guy in there, not Chizik's.
For WRs, I think that they've been well below the average for a Big 12 group. The WR group has steadily went downhill since Blythe and Davis graduated. Worse every year. My concern is that this staff does not do a good job of evaluating WRs. No CPR-recruited WR has caught a single pass at ISU! And this is a position that was not only lacking in talent, but one where true freshmen that are talented can see the field right away. Still, they can't recruit over what is an average at best group. The projected starters at WR and TE this season? Four Chizik recruits. On top of that, either Wells did a bad job of coaching the WRs on the roster or couldn't get through to them. So, I'll apologize to "The City", but it's time to quit the hype with this group and actually do something on the field.
