Any info on the Samoan brother? Looks like they picked up offers from LSU. Sure would like to have them in the burnt orange!
Texas has too many options to run the Wild to cost Swoopes a year of development and have a true freshman backup QB on the field making mistakes again.
REDSHIRT SWOOPES and use your HEADS!!!
Swoopes is not the present of the program, he's the future. In order to play in 2013, Swoopes will have to convince the staff that he adds a whole lot of value to the offense right now. Ash can run, which makes Swoopes value-added questionable. Why waste a year of eligibility for non-meaningful snaps?
If we really are expecting to make runs in 2014 and 2015, wouldn't redshirting Swoopes this season deprive him of valuable controlled game action experience going into next season?
I really think it depends on his particular learning style. If he's hands on, you play him. If he can learn from film study and practice bullets, you redshirt.
