    This is a good problem to have.

    I agree stick with one QB unless he is imploding.

    Don't swap out QBs just to swap out.

    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.
    They had no film on him either.

    Things can change when a good DC has a chance to study tendencies.

    It's a good problem to have if your coach knows how to handle it.
    From your own comments, historical perspective tells us otherwise.

    Don't try to worm out. I got you.

    I've seen our QB's prep all spring summer and fall look much much worse than Nunez. Not crowning him as the starter or the savior, he did his job which is more that can be said for others. He gave us a chance to win the game.

    Once again, not even close to the same thing.

    ULM had no film on Nunez, didn't plan for him.

    The next game test will be a better indicator once a DC has a chance to study tendencies.

    IF Davis is healthy he should start and stay in.

    They're literally the same qb thought turbine. They're interchangeable and the gameplan is the same against him as JD

    The game plan is irrelevant when the game has gotten out of hand. ULM defense was in a prevent cover 2. That is literally throwing the game plan out and saying "don't let them get behind you".

    This is getting stupid.

    Then my point is the same. Nunez did not face a defense that was as focused on his abilities as he would if he were the consistent starter.

    ULM didn't know that (literally the same qb) which makes everything from their play calling to execution a little more tentative.

    Nunez faced a defense that was prepared for the same plays Davis was trying to execute. They ran the same playbook.

    In Turbine's defense...the defense that faced Nunez was up by 3 scores.

    Some were arguing ULM was in a prevent mode.

    They weren't in prevent mode in the first half.

    When Davis was in right?

    I was just looking at Nunez.

    I hope Davis gets healthy and returns to form, and that Nunez continues to do well if the opportunity arises.

    This.... He was playing with a lot of freedom because of the scoreboard.
