I disagree with you, respectfully. Your rating will take a hit if you insinuate that David could not have accomplished the things Case did last year. You're entirely wrong if you think Case won the A&M game for us. Carrington Byndom and the defensive backs won that game for us.
Are we just a bit full of ourselves? Just like the world isn't a static place, neither are people static. In case you haven't been paying attention, Case has decided to shoot folks like you the finger and fight for the QB job. I for one will be tickled if he wins the job.
"I've heard some of our fans say, 'We were always an SEC school. We just didn't know it," athletic director Bill Byrne said.
Whomever the coaches pick, their jobs rest on that decision. If they pick the wrong ones often enough their jobs will be on the balance. We will go back to our jobs Monday mornings fussing. I believe the reason most of us want Ash is because we think he is the better option. If Mack or Harsin plays McCoy it is because they think he is better suited for that particular situation.
I keeping hoping that's the case (no pun intended), but the OP hasn't come back to defend it. I'm at the point that I don't even care who is leading the team, just as long as they're piling up W's.
"I don't hate you, I'm just not necessarily excited about your existence."
This, as I said in another thread, I don't give a damn who's the QB as long as he gives us the best chance to win. If they flip every week and for some reason Alex Okafor gives us the best chance to win, I'll take it.
Agree 100%. I don't care who it is (full disclosure: I expect it to be Ash), but I just want a QB who will control the ball (low interceptions) and hit deep passes off of play-action to keep the defense honest and open up the running game.
If Case can prove that he can hit on the intermediate-to-deep passes without just throwing balls up for grabs, I'm all for him as QB1. He seems to have a bit more of a leadership quality to him than Ash has shown (so far). But I think most people agree that Ash has shown better tools to be successful in our offense. He has the arm to hit on deep passes, the legs to escape the pocket, and needs to continue to improve his ball control, which it appears he has done based on the scrimmage reports.
