    This is Davis' last stand and really a new beginning. New Offense, New position Coach. He either captures the new Coaches confidence or its over. He has the physical tools and it's up to him.

    I am pulling for the kid. I hope he can step up in spring and take control of that position.

    I'd still have a triple option package that gets Ray on the field a few possessions a game. You gonna need him as a back up so you don't want to move positions but he's to good to leave on the bench.

    If I remember correctly, the student section was chanting for Jake to be put in, and erupted when he finally ran on the field.

    The decision was made at halftime between Louie and Stokes.... we wern't gonna wait long to see if the others could get it done.... remember, our asses were on the griddle after 3 straight losing seasons.

    That was such a cool game. I wasn't living in Lafayette at the time, so I wasn't even aware of Jake Delhomme. A little kid sitting in front of me at the game says, "look dad... Jake is putting on his helmet"... I'd already heard the kid telling his dad something about Nelson saying that if Jake was wearing a red hat that he would be redshirted. Well, 5 interceptions in the first half (as I recall it) and Jake goes in. It was really cool to watch how Jake operated under center. You could tell he was all about reading the defense, barking out signals, and doing what it took to move the chains. But didn't he actually throw an interception on his first pass?

    Yes.....but Jake had "it" just as Brian did....leadership and huddle presence. Players believed in both of those guys. They always had that gut feeling that Brian and then Jake, when the chips were down, would lead them down the field. It's hard to explain but you just know when a QB has it.

    UL Football Re: New UL QBs will get opportunity to play right away

    Hayes had three years prior to Jakes freshman year. He's not listed in that year so his absence wasn't because of eligibility for years played.

    He graduated early.....Jake would have beaten him out

    I'm going to say something here.....I like both QB signees from this 2017 class....I got to see Harrison from Port Arthur memorial in person. I love his field presence and his demeanor on the sidelines.....sticking my neck out but this kid intrigues me..

    I have only seen him on hudl. I have said before he's got the most up side in the bunch including the guys already on campus. IMO

    Wasn't there a JC transfer back then by the name of Jason Sanborn who they had pinned most of their hopes on?

    Upside and potential are funny words. Most people talked just like this for JD and a lot of people said this about Dion Ray. Next best thing since sliced bread. Yet we haven't seen him complete one pass yet. And look where we are at

    You are correct. But if you take a look at all 3 of their hudl videos as Srs in high school Harrison is no doubt the best at that point in their perspective careers. Now how this bunch develops him going forward might be the million dollar question.

    Probably. That was in the middle of the frat years, so I was not fully aware of my surroundings, so to speak.
