    May have earned more playing time? WTH does it take to earn playing time after that performance?

    And considering he had zero before the game it's an interesting perspective

    Hudspeth: "I believe you don't lose your job to injury."

    Gautier: Say What?

    Turbine: See, Hud can change.

    Up until the injury Davis was every bit as good of a passer and more of a run threat.

    Nunez makes quicker decisions than Davis as far as when he should run once pocket breaks down. I noticed that in the spring game and a scrimmage I attended. I do not know nearly as much about football as CajunT, Man About Town, or BasinBear. However, I do know that how quickly a QB makes decisions is a prime factor in how much success they have. I remember Bobby Hebert saying something interesting when he played for the Saints. His main prayer the night before a game was a request for the Lord to keep him safe and to make quick decisions. Even if you make the wrong decision it is better if made quickly. Of course that is easy to say here when in the heat of battle, half a second is the difference between making a decision quick enough or too late.

    Brutal CajunJeaux, but definitely funny. Just for the record, I haven't proclaimed Nunez better than Davis at this point. I did say Nunez has a big set on him and showed it Saturday night.

    I watched Davis limp off the field after the second series, so I had no problem with him coming out of the game. I'm still confused as to why Hudspeth threw him under the bus saying he was "like a deer in the headlights", at halftime.

    Hud can't get out of his own way. Dude is a moron. He also pretty much proved not putting Nunez in against Tx A&M in the 2nd half was a bone heade move.

    He threw Joe Dillon under the bus as well. He's a moron.

    When I watched the game back over I really wasn't impressed with Nunez. Put himself in danger in the pocket too many times with nervous footwork, missed basic passes, and didn't do anything special. Hoping Davis is healthy to go for Idaho game

    It took davis 4 years to look competent. It was the guys first action in FBS. What do you want from a backup transfer from FCS?

    He racked up stats playing against prevent defense. It's easy to look good when DBs start 15 yards off ball. It basically looked like the Cajuns normal defensive alignment.

    And thus the vaunted signature Mark Hudspeth two quarterback system lives yet again. I still don't understand how a quarterback is supposed to get into a rhythm when he's got a series and then is pulled, or perhaps when he does in fact get into a rhythm of completing say two passes in a row and dion "definitely gonna run" ray is inserted. Let Davis keep his job if he's hurt go to Nunez. Don't play mix and match.

    It's worse.

    It's now a tri-QB system with Drive Killer and his "package"

    Why does Smedium do this? High school coach gonna high school it.

    I've had this take with everyone I've discussed the situation with.
    I'm not taking anything away from Nunez, because there is certainly something to be said about being clutch. He did make some big time throws.

    However, its one thing to play free and have the ability to just throw the ball around the yard against a prevent defense, who was gassed and already bad; and an entirely different thing to execute a game plan, prep for a defense that is prepping for you, and run a team from the first snap.
