Poll says it all.
Still very much puzzled. How in the heck, did Michael Box allow himself to feel like he saw the hand writing on the wall at the UConn QB position. Heck, this position will have more "shift changes" than a hockey line. Box may have become a fixture as early as Friday night. Was he intimidated? Did he feel like he didn't have the tools to compete with this stable of QB studs? Wow!!!!
By all reports, he was told that all of the other three were at a level to compete for the position and he wasn't. There is no reason to think that Box misread the situation.
Did the coaches send the wrong message to Box? Or make a poor judgment on him? There is no point speculating on that because we'll never know. And, frankly, to be fair to the coaches, have no reason to think that they got it wrong.
By all reports Spurrier wanted Box as well. Since I know Spurrier passes your test as to understanding passing offenses, I think sometimes you have to accept that good decisions don't always work out. Heck, every major program east of the Mississippi offered Frazer. You don't know in recruiting. You try to get it right enough to win games (which, by the way, we've been doing) but you just don't know.
I vote Nebrich. Hell, he can't feel any pressure given last games performance. Go out there and have fun.
Maybe its my imagination but it seemed that JM didn't have any mustard on his throws, and that's an ongoing problem. Frazer threw too heavy a ball, JM too light, how bout MN just right.
