You can't go with only 2 scholarship QBs, so have at it
I mean for next year.

ZooCougar said:Best case, Boyle can play well for us, we get one of those graduate senior transfers AND a JUCO type to give us a solid three deep.
businesslawyer said:You do what you can. If Boyle is competent this year, with Sherrill becoming eligible as well you won't get a top JUCO here, because they want to go somewhere with a depth chart opening. But if you can get a competent #3, fine.
Otherwise, you take another frosh. Frankly, you may do that anyway in case something else happens to our depth here. (And why wouldn't it)
Wow, you read my mind on this one. He Abrams was a decent dual threat QB in HS. They should give this some serious thought.More importantly than "next year," you have to decide if your walk on is your #3 QB, or if Kamal Abrams needs to be moved from WR to QB.

I think we need to get Boyle some snaps in case CW has an issue. Bye bye RS put him in the shotgun and let's have at it boys. Line better get their sheet together right now.
I'm done with the 2 QB systems. D-U-N done. I might poke my eye out if I see QB's getting shuttled in and out again. Boyle as a true #2, will get enough reps in a practice, and prep time with game plans, to be ready to play. That's the god damn job of a #2 QB. To make use of practice reps, and prep time, to be ready, because you're always one snap away. This concept that a QB needs game time reps to be ready to play? that. I'm tired of it. Maybe I'm old school, and I don't get it, but you pick your starters and you go, and given things otherwise equal talent and skill ,etc wise - which they are, experience, and seniority wins out. You jack around too long with players and systems, and the football Gods pick your starters for you.
The gods have spoken, and Whitmer is our starter - better get in line and start playing.
Will Rishell was not a great quarterback at RHAM, the high school that has had all of one winning seasons, much less at UConn. Sorry, but it is the truth. He is a good kicker thoughFrom the official roster...

10Chandler Whitmer6-0/192QuarterbackRS SRNewnan, Ga. (Butler CC)
Anyone have thought on Will Rishell? He's the 3rd string now... I believe a walk on, would they consider him in case of emergency? Build him a small package of plays and get him a few snaps?
Obviously the huge concern is if Boyle is ready. He has a cannon of an arm but he was having trouble with accuracy and reading coverages.
