Dude, or dudette...
At the combine he was measured to be 6'4 (a good 4 inches taller than all-world QB Drew Brees).
But yeah, Colt is the best and would beat out Tannehill, but Luck is too short.
The DERPA DERP DERP DERP is strong to very strong in this thread.
Can anyone lend me more downvotes?
You are embarrassing yourself.
"Just my opinion, but the moon looks bigger than the sun. It must be!"
Yep, I'm with WildBill. I'm sure everyone all has their sources but I know Luck liked Texas a lot.

Keep the butthurt downvotes coming boys and girls.
The Sooner had it right in his OP... Luck would have been a Texas/Stanford battle if Texas would have offered, with Texas having the distance factor and Stanford not having the massive amount of momentum they do now after the Luck era.
Stanford would have been an upset if they won out over Texas IMO.

Too many caf-pows this morning? :)
More than likely right about 2011 although it's a tough call with no TE, Ship hurt, Davis sucking and both backs going down. Tall order for anyone. Still don't think we win the conference.....
I'll agree they have a better chance but I thought Gilbert played pretty well all things considered. It isn't like Luck would've had any more snaps to prepare.
Kates are you from around stratford? I know the lucks and think he would have been very receptive had texas shown interest
If Texas had Luck in 2010 then Texas might have gone 7-6 or 8-5 and none of the coaches that were needed to be let go would still be here.

He would have had an entire year of snaps more than Gilbert, not to mention he was just a better player overall.
Game snaps.......and with the game Davis was calling I'm not sure anybody could've pulled that out.
But which came first? The, "Don't like him, doesn't fit our system" or "I'm not considering Texas"?
Of course, if I'd had the choice of a free ride to Stanford and a free ride to Texas, I wouldn't be posting on this board.

Maybe not in 2010. In 2011, there was a pretty good chance. Look at the reason we lost a couple of those games. Running backs went down and we didn't have the quarterbacks to lead the team. With Luck, there's a chance we beat Okie State, Baylor, K-state, and Mizzou. Quarterback play was atrocious in those games. I don't see us beating OU at all.

If those coaches wouldn't have missed on talent why would we have wanted them to go? My dislike for GD is there with the best of them but had they kept pumping talent into the program who knows where we would be. I doubt we would have had 2010 and '11 repeats like you say. Just saying.
GG played in a terrible system with below UT's standard personnel. I don't fault him for that. Still, and I'll stick my neck out here since I haven't bothered to check, but I doubt Mr. Luck would have managed any 5 pick performances, wild inaccuracy, and odd ball stuck in hand moments.
On the other hand, we probably wouldn't have had any of the badly needed staff turnover.
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
I agree with you if the other coaches were pumping talent into the Texas program and Texas was winning then you don't want them to go. The problem is if Texas only gets Luck and the other coaches keep doing poor jobs at recruiting talent and the S&C program.
Yes he did... and so did his cousin, for whatever that's worth!
Since this is getting to be a bi-annual discussion, we'll never know what would have happened in 2010 or 2011 IF he was Texas' starting Qb... since he was never recruited in 2007/2008 nor did he make any visits... it's all a mute point now!

Either put the game in the hands of your turnover prone QB or run the ball with your weak running game right into the teeth of the Bama defense.
Luck was better, would have been a RS freshman with an entire year of practice snaps under his belt, and just would have done better.
Passing on a QB in '08 (think that was Luck's year) was a mistake.
Mack even says in his book, take a QB every year.
But the sooner is an idiot. For one thing, GD doesn't decide whether or not we take or don't take a QB.
GD really liked Luck (know this for a fact). GD tried to get Griffin on campus though as an Athlete.
Anything else is revisionist history.
Would Luck have come here? Heard both, ironically from people who know Luck's Dad.
Doubt we'll ever know the truth but am reminded of the haters going nuts when Chase Daniel claimed he had a TEXAS offer.
3 years later during a Cotton Bowl interview (pre Big XII game interview?), he admitted NEITHER TEXAS nor OU offered him.
Moral of the story, be careful of sources and OU SUCKS.
Moot dammit. M-O-O-T.
Well, in fairness, one could say he's speaking but you can't hear anything.
