This is why the question is so interesting (to me).

Who has the meaningful experience? Munchie
Who has the athleticism? Munchie
Who has performed under pressure? Munchie
Who has won big games? Munchie
Who is the #1 QB? Butch won't say.

The easiest thing to do would be to say "the Job is Munchie's to lose" or "Munchie enters the spring as the #1, but he will face competition".

But that's not what is being said...

What we are hearing is that the competition is "wide open" and he continues to praise Munchie, Kay (who he refers to as "1A') and Coyne.

Which gets back to my original post...

Is he trying to motivate one of the back-up's? Is he trying to motivate Munchie? Is this his preferred way of evaluation? Does he really not know at this time? Has there really not been anyone to grab the "lead" yet? Is the battle really as wide-open as he claims?

Whoever our QB is, the O linemen better be working on tackling drills! Could be a frustrating season.

After throwing that way for so long, it is just instinct to go back to it under the stress of a game.
I don't know why Munchie would scare anyone. He is a good athlete. If we can't correct his throwing motion, then he needs to work on playing smaller. He needs to get in position to throw in a passing lane and avoid throwing over the top of the line. We can't afford to give away a ton of downs from balls being batted down.

Yes we do. It is Munchie.

Remember when Butch came in? He wouldnt name Zach the starter. He was going to have to earn it over Chazz Anderson?

You werent one of those guys who thought we didnt have a started then too were you?

Bank on Munchie. He is the starter. I am always a little nervous about QB's moving from backup to starter but I do not have any doubt that Muchems is our guy.

This isn't true.


Butch had his guy coming in (Lefevour) at CMU, and he had his guy (Collaros) at UC too.

DF @ CMU helped lead the team to a MAC title his freshman year under Kelly.

ZC handled himself very well in his 2009 Sophomore season - including appearing in all 13 games (4 starts) and contributed to the undefeated regular season under BK.

When Butch took over at UC, Collaros was the guy going into the season. For perspective... http://www.gobearcats.com/sports/m-f...071410aaa.html

Obviously he had to continue to earn his spot on top, but he was getting national attention as a QB to watch going into the 2010 season.

This year, the vibe is very different. The competition may very well be won by Munchie...but I continue to think it's somewhat telling that Butch has yet to dub someone as the #1 guy.

I don't think its telling, except that spring practices haven't concluded, and the summer camps haven't started. I am sure Jones has a plan, and not naming a starter this early will help the competition between the players as the practices progress.

A starter won't be named until after they break camp at Higher Ground this summer. Maybe, not even then.
