"Devil" is the hybrid OLB/DE.
"Eagle" is the hybrid OLB/S.

Thanks!

I can’t imagine that Faulkner would be an option at Devil (or any DB type). Honestly I hope Faulkner isn’t an option anywhere. He was overmatched at Eagle and at safety. Good kid and worked hard but just a step too slow for this level.

Shouldn’t we be adding the new Nebraska transfer WR to the projected starting lineups?  

We may as the season rolls on but he'll have to earn his spurs in a pretty talented receiver room.

I think we need to stop making it seem like Ruder failed because he was “rushed.” He didn’t have to be lights out by the SMU game. He was given time and by game 4 he started 3-10 for 13 yards, more than 4 months after he got to Denton. 

We’re talking about guys in their 4th year of college like Ruder was last year and Gunnell will be this year. 4 months of learning an offense that doesn’t have a ton of plays or read progressions, and 4 games under their belt, if they are still struggling and not showing signs of progress, that says more about the player than them being rushed IMO. 
 

 

if you only knew how things went down. Jace got to Denton in June. No contact with coaches cause they were recruiting.  Coaches are on vacation in July. Still no contact with coaches.  First contact with coaches fall camp. So you really don’t know shit.

This isn't disproving Billy.  You simply raised more questions, like

Did he have contact with players? Was there no one to get him started on our playbook?
Maybe our playbook is really hard?
Are you saying we shouldn't read too much into Jace's first 3 years?

...my position is, I've been a big supporter of Ruder.  Not sure why, but I still really hope he is the guy.  I would love any and all reasons for optimism.

Was he not given a playbook the whole time they were gone? I didn’t say anything about coaches working with him over the summer, because I know those interaction times between players and coaches are limited. So not sure that’s the big “gotcha” to my points that you are acting like it is.

Either way, it’s semantics that don’t detract from my actual point. His last start was his worst start, statistically. Rushed or not, the situation wasn’t improving. Older QBs across the country come in over the summer and start. My point is it’s really not exceptionally rushed by today’s standards (or even 4 years ago’s standards with the grad transfer rush). Transfer QBs have to improve week to week, even if it takes a little to get over the learning curve. 

It’s obviously a personal situation for you, hence why you feel it’s okay to take a somewhat personal shot at me. And I’m fine with that. But Littrell is the one who made the switch, not me. You keep telling us how we don’t know all the details, as posters close to players often do on here. Even if “how things went down” really is the reason things didn’t go as well as they could have for Jace, we didn’t see it. It’s only reasonable people are going to be in wait and see mode until then. Not like we’re actively rooting against a player on our favorite team.

See true freshman Mason Fine for evidence that it can be done.
