2022 Fall Camp: Drippin'


DFW Horn

Recommended Posts

Mock was great, he deserved his shot. And he lost it to Young at the right time I thought. And he did that awesome drive against Texas Tech.

Anyway that was 20 years ago. Neither Chance Mock nor Vince Young are walking through that door.

I never believe the hype and always wait to see how the team does when they actually start playing. I guess this year I need to not believe the doomerism.

Yeah almost no QBs are ready day 1. I can't name one week 1 true freshman starting QB in the last 10 years, for any school. Lawrence was the closest because he split playing time early on but he didn't actually start until week 5. 

But lol, Arch isn't reclassifying this late and he'd have to graduate HS so it's not like he can just wake up and do it.

Yeah I was joking about Arch reclassifying.  I’m just talking gibberish until they announce Card as the starter.  I kid, I kid.

 

 

Hopefully

Spoiler

Inside Texas believes if Hudson Card has a good scrimmage on Saturday he’ll be named the starter for the opener. That does not mean the quarterback battle will be over, but it will mean the ball is once again in Card’s court.

One source confidently stated each quarterback would beat Louisiana-Monroe and UTSA, but the real test of Card’s growth will be versus Alabama. This source mentioned Bama again by saying, the best example might end up being Jalen Hurts versus Tua Tagovailoa. Hurts gave way to Tua due to Tua’s ability to hit the deep ball. That’s neither here nor there but it is instructive to how short Card’s leash might once again be.

One thing is for sure, Card has had the more consistent camp. With that being the case, it’s hard to name anyone but the better performer. It’s not a runaway, however, and they’ll need both quarterbacks this season.

We’ll see how Saturday goes but as of now, Card is the favorite to be named starter and he had another solid practice on Thursday. Others who were mentioned were Xavier Worthy, Tarique Milton, and Jahleel Billingsley.

Most 1’s and 2’s are decided but Saturday’s scrimmage will further solidify the depth chart. 

Something to watch closely early in the season is the defensive line. Reports are positive about their overall play, but those were the reports last year. I don’t think we’ll know what Texas has until a few games into the season, but there is talent especially in the interior which gives the reports some credibility. 

*Roschon Johnson and Alfred Collins are still out. Offensive guard Cole Hutson has been cleared to return but we don’t expect him to scrimmage on Saturday. Jahdae Barron could return in next few days. He’ll be good to go for the first game.

*The team will only be in helmets today ahead of the scrimmage tomorrow morning.

 Anyway, I was getting psyched about this season, finally having a legitemate quarterback on the roster. Until this week. I just don't like what I am hearing from this team and coaching staff.


I admit that I've been buried this week. What, specifically, have you heard from this team and coaching staff that makes you so down-hearted?

I always felt Chance Mock didn't deserve to lose the QB1 job. If VY wasn't a generational talent, NO WAY would Mock have been benched.

Deserves got nothin to do with it/Eastwood

You obviously play the general talent and don’t look back

This is a whole bunch of words to describe how fucking retarded you are 

Or perhaps it's speculating on a scenario that you're not ready to accept.  If you read the post closely, which I know is asking a lot of the Twitter era 44-character short-attention span age that the internet has so very unfortunately arrived at, it draws no conclusions on what Quinn Ewers will or will not be and leaves the door wide open for all possibilities.

Dear god.

He skipped his senior year of high school and enrolled two weeks before camp at Ohio State.  The guy he was "unable to beat" was a Heisman finalist.  Are you surprised?  Vince Young, Trevor Lawerence, Jesus Christ himself would not have been "able" to win that starting job.  

And here we are today.  He is effectively an early enrollee, true freshman QB who didn't play his senior year of high school.  I don't know if you know this but that profile very fucking rarely comes in and starts day 1.  And when they do, they almost always fucking suck.

It should not surprise anyone that he hasn't yet been heads and shoulders above another highly ranked QB who has 1) two years on campus, 2) an extra year in the current offensive system with actual meaningful playing time (shit on performance all you want).

Quinn not being day 1 starter is not part of some meaningful "pattern."  The only pattern is stupid lazy takes in this fucking thread.

 

 

I must have missed the part in my post where I drew any definitive conclusions of what Quinn Ewers will and will not end up being.  Thought I left the door open for a number of possible outcomes.  If anything, my post was asking for patience.

You generally light a cigarette after you’ve been fucked good, but in this case if we trot out card it means we’re already fucked and we should go ahead and smoke it now. 

I thought it was you give a guy a cigarette before you put him in front of a firing squad.

Can we maybe not scrimmage and then just play our starters the first quarter of ULM??

When Card inevitably struggles to move the ball against Bama, I hope our fans don’t boo him off the field like they did to Gilbert against BYU. The backup QB is always the fan favorite, but it will be even more so with 5 ⭐️ Ewers on the sideline. 

So you're assuming he won't struggle to move the ball against ULM?

These reports crack me up, how they have to print whatever the random person they're using as a source says. "This source began a long rant about woodworking and the price of tea in China. Honestly, I couldn't really follow but they have insider access so I just stood there slowly blinking and nodding my head."

This football board is a complete asswhipping right now. 

Wait until the losses to inferior opponents start. As the Washington Husky board said when we hired Sark. "We will get tired of Sark's WTF losses". I hope in the long run they are wrong but so far Kansas proves them right.

This board will lose it's mind during the Bama game and we all know what is coming!

I've reached the point to where I hope Card gets the nod.  Reasoning:

  • I want to see CTJ lose his bet and resulting righteous anger.
  • I haven't wrote off Card.  (Redshirt) Freshman QB's often suck.  He sucked.  After a few glimpses into Fall camp, Surly consensus is that he is a head case / damaged goods.  I don't know that he's NOT damaged goods, but Surly also doesn't KNOW that he is.  There is a pile of historical data that suggests he could be very much improved.
  • Speaking of head cases / damaged goods... what's a good way to really mentally fuck a young QB?  How about throwing Quinn out to Will Anderson and co in his second game in... 20 months?  After having only had 6 months within a completely new, complex offensive system.  Say we do run him out there and it goes poorly... good thing we have such an even-keeled, non-toxic fanbase that will definitely not immediately dial up the pressure to 1000.  Oh wait...

Card should starts.  Quinn gets ~half of game against ULM.  Feed Card to the wolves.  Quinn isn't beating Bama you fucking idiots.  If Card shits down his leg (possible if not likely), bring Quinn in against the 2nd team defense and hopefully there's a spark.  I have little doubt Quinn wins the job outright before the season is over.  Let's stop being reactionary, unrealistic, retarded pussies and acting like the world is ending if It's not 100% Quinn day 1.

I don't remember the backup being a fan favorite when Peter the Great, Vince and Colt were playing. Now Peter sucked but he won games that mattered to us. So when the starter does not have it then that is when the backup is a fan favorite.

LOL these reports are such horseshit. 

 

"If Card has a better final scrimmage he will be named the starter"..... no shit

"but that doesn't mean a change can't happen once he shits the bed in an actual game".... no shit

Being that the $9.95 are all full of shit it doesn't matter - but everyone seems to be on the same page saying Ewers is better with the deep ball (and potentially during the true "Team" periods but when you factor in individual and 7 on 7 (which matter significantly less)), Card has been more "consistent."  It is definitely not a ringing endorsement.

 

I will go out on a limb and say if Ewers has the better scrimmage tomorrow, he will be named the starter.  /dramaticgophergif

 

We will know the answer tomorrow, and if the answer is Card so be it... it will more than likely change to Ewers early in the season.  If we don't switch, that means we are wrecking shop on offense, and I don't give a fuck.

Two things I'm going to trust Sark on: Offensive scheme and QB. 

I'm good with whoever he goes with as I think we can win with either given the upgrade in talent around them.  Card's resume can't be fully judged by last season given what he was surrounded by which was basically Worthy and Bijan.  And Bijan struggled in pass protection as much as the o-line did.  With an improved o-line, better Bijan, more WR targets it's going to be much easier for Sark to scheme to whichever QB he's going with.

This talk of if "X" starts we'll suck but if "Y" starts we might or might not suck, etc is ridiculous even for Surly (bar is really.... really low)

You know this is precisely how it will go down if Card starts the season. He'll light up ULM. Some will think he's much improved and praise Sark the QB whisperer. Our offense will seem unstoppable and our defense improved. Kool aid will be had once again. By the second quarter of the Bama game, Card already will have thrown two picks and we'll be down 24-3. The crowd, growing increasingly restless, will start the Ewers chant. The TV crew will pan to the student section with four hundred drunk mother fuckers wearing Joe Dirt wigs. They'll tell the story about Ewers's recruitment and transfer from Ohio State twelve times. Just before half, Bama will bring the heat again. Card will pirouette around the pocket before having his helmet ripped off and nose bloodied by Will Anderson. He'll cough up the rock for a Bama scoop and score to end the half. TV  crew pans to Sark squatting on 40-yard line, head in hands. Halftime alcohol sales will hit an all-time high. 

They'll trot Ewers out in the second half. The crowd will go wild. He'll light it up for a few series, then throw a couple picks to seal the loss. 50-21 Bama. QB play will be up and down for the rest of the year. The controversy will continue through the season. How do I know all this? Because #We'reTexas
