    He went into spring practice as Jordan Davis' main competition for the Ragin' Cajuns' starting quarterback job, and as a relative unknown.

    Hud has always said he liked Weaver. Hud believes Weaver has some intangible qualities not all quarterbacks possess. It will be interesting to see what ultimately happens to Dion Ray. Gotta love a quarterback who was also an honorable mention all-state linebacker.

    Just what we need. No clear cut starting qb race that goes all the way to week 1

    It's too early for him to say publicly that there is no competition at the QB position. Davis was on the only QB that wore a yellow jersey in the scrimmage yesterday. The defense was allowed to hit all other QB's during the scrimmage.

    HUD knows exactly who his QB is going to be. He is just trying to create competition at practice.

    Yeah... we were saying that last year. By the end of the spring, I want HUD to give us a name. A QB starter going into the fall.

    Well, just like last year....I'm going to be watching Offensive linemen.....whoever is taking the snap is a moot point if we, don't have the players to protect up front.

    Completely agree with that. OL is the reason we had four straight 9-win seasons, and for much of that, also a DL that could stop the run.

    Agree but I want one quarterback.

    Hopefully the OL is more agile this year. That was a complaint I heard last season.

    The kid throws a beautiful pass a long way with no effort. He has a build like Ben Roethlisberger really thick and muscular. I'm thinking it will take more than one person to take him down. Don't know too much about his speed though.

    Spring game is on the 16th (I think) so we ought to see more of him there.

    I think Hud knows better than to repeat anything close to last year. But I want a competition to keep everyone learning at a fast clip and pushing each other. JD shouldn't be crowned early. And Weaver and Ray need to be ready if JD goes down. As a fan, I'm pumped to know we've got a guy like Weaver in the mix. That's all I took from the article.

    Obviously I understand the impact a QB has on the offense... but I still maintain that MUCH more than the QB, offensively, created the failures of last year. Any of the top 3 NFL QBs would have had a losing record at UL last year.

    I hope one wins a very close competition. Means both are performing well (well, hopefully) and we have someone capable if the starter goes down. We haven't had a guy play an entire season at QB in quite a while so we need to have 2 capable guys.

    And I really hope we plan on using Dion Ray somewhere. That kid is too much of a threat to be signaling in plays from the sideline.

    I'm pretty sure Cam Newton would have gotten us at least 6-6. Don't fool yourself into thinking we didn't have terrible QB play to go along with the bad o line play.

    I never fool myself. And if you think the OL wasn't spectacular compared to the coaching job, you must be married to a coach. It doesn't take 5 poor coaching decisions to wreck an offense. But our coaching staff made 10. And no, Haack wasn't even close to bad... much less terrible. It's the most convenient place to lay the blame... because it always is when it comes to the offense. Cheerleaders blame it on the QB... he had the ball first... he scrambled and didn't pick up the yardage... he threw it and "missed"... he must have been to blame. Football for dummies.

    Well, I can assure you as clear as the sun is hot, that if any entity should be saddled with the blame for our offense last year... it was the grown men called coaches. Most get to come back and get do-overs, while past players they recruited take the blame.

    That farce last year was Hud and company... Nixon QB'ing, slamming Eli into a wall, WRs in horrific routes, dumb plays, worse play sequences, power football with an out of shape OL, no rhythm created between a passing QB and his receivers... it didn't take but one dumb decision to lose half the contests... but our staff deployed them all.

    I'll try and forget what I know... and root for Hud to return to his glory years. But I know exactly what failed last year. Injuries? Granted. APC distraction? BS. Lockeroom problems? BS. Horrific coaching? Check mate.

    I'm concerned nonetheless. We still enter this upcoming season with little to no starting experience and that should concern everyone regardless of what their talent levels are. There is nothing that can ready them for leading their team on gameday into tough venues except just getting out there and doing it. The problem is that we are likely to experience some losses while we get these youngsters battle tested. It could be a fairly rough year.

    Davis has all he needs in experience to be successful. If he isn't blame everything but experience, a vastly over rated thing. I've seen hundreds of young quarterbacks play lights out. More so than mediocre ones become a lot better with more years.

    He could be great. That would mean everything around him improved. He could be awful. That could be anything except not enough experience. Third year sophomore with several starts.
