I still think Tiller will be the starter at the beginning of the season. It's rare for a JUCO to come in and completely take over a position. It seems like they need at least one half of a season to get things in order. We can win with Tiller. He had a strong showing against Missouri last year. The success of this season will depend a lot on our receivers, maybe even more so than who we have at the quarterback position.
After three weeks of fall practice, we will know the qb starter. That was the hint from CPR we heard tonight.
But I have to completely disagree about Tiller in that article. The Nebraska win was in no way attributed to him. Unless you want to say him not being able to move the ball led to the defense being on the field long enough to come away with 8 turnovers... but a lot of those were more Nebraska than they were us. Still a great win though.
I don't really think anyone is trying to discredit Tiller for Nebraska, as opposed to just giving credit where its due. He didn't lose the game, but if the defense allows anything more than a TD, we lose the game, period.
A question for those of you that are a little bit older than me:
I know hindsight is 20/20, but thinking back, what was the buzz like when Seneca came to town? Did everyone know how amazing he would be before spring ball or before the season started? Was it all alot of hype like we've had with Steele? Was he just a pleasant surprise?
I was in Ames when that happened, but too busy getting drunk in Towers to notice much...
Seneca had a little buzz and I remember watching his first game against UNI. It was pretty obvious he was athletically gifted. I was shocked at how well he threw the ball.
Granted it is a highlight video but Jantz looks so much more accurate with his throws than Arnaud did. I don't know how many times I saw wide open guys get an underthrown or overthrown ball.
Jantz definitely looks like a more accurate passer though. Tiller might be as well.
I really dont care who quarterbacks the team as long as we win eight games a year
AA missed a pretty open receiver last year against K-State at the end of the game.
