Maybe you can help me straighten something out here.
In your chat you mention how its not a bad thing that we dont have a punter at this point because competition breeds success. And I completely agree. Ive seen it in my own life.
We also talk about how teams like NIU and the CornFuskers who still dont have QBs is definitely a bad thing. I also agree with that.
However, it appears we have a paradox here. How can I agree with both of those things?
Either fierce competition breeds success, or it doesn't?
At Nebraska, you have two QB's who they had hoped would be ready to TAKE the job by now.
ISU's punter situation shows you a walk on and a true freshman battling it out. In all reality, neither one should be ready to play, even Kuehl who is a senior. Most walk ons never see the field. The fact that this is even a conversation means that the senior has REALLY stepped up his game. He wouldn't be in the mix if he hadn't.
DOes that make any sense? I totally see your point. I just think that the two situations are very different.
