    Dion has an ego issue.. He has been told he is a legit QB back to his High School days.. He believes.. He wont play any other position as he has told everyone within an ear shot. Problem is is the space between his ears and not his arms or legs. He is truly a gifted athlete who can play many positions. Qb just isn't the one

    That was the only reason he didn't go to ole miss if I'm not mistaken. But know you've got to pitch the idea that him at QB is not good for our brand and his as well

    JD
    Lewis
    Nunez
    Go on HUDL and find each of our QBs HS highlights. Harrison clearly had the most up side as a complete qb than any other. His position will remain at QB.

    There will be no other QBs on the squad. Ray either moves positions or transfers (but honestly, I don't see him as a slot receiver or tail back, and he doesn't have the hips or instincts to play DB). Arceneaux may stay on the team, but he will not retain scholarship.
    And where do you see Lewis? I don't think there is any way that we don't have 4 QB's on the roster. One significant injury and that depth chart is all of a sudden real thin. I agree that Arceneaux likely gets taken off of scholarship and no idea what happens with Ray.

    At least every once in a while. you can run playaction and bootlegs as well as short yardage plays much easier from under center IMO.

    Well, one thing for certain. Having your head coach call the plays and teach QB's the results will be better no matter who Naps chooses.

    Part of the reason for burning his shirt was that he has no intention of being here 5 years. I doubt he redshirts and will likely be the #2 behind Davis.

    He talked Hud out of his redshirt last year, I can't tell if the quote below is for Lewis, Ray, or some other salesman.

    "We're gonna let these young men compete, let them prove themselves. And obviously there's not a lot of talking that needs to be done from their perspective.

    "It's gonna be more about showing us they can get the job done," Napier added, "and not necessarily about telling us."

    No offense, but we don't have anyone on our roster who is getting drafted early. I'm not sure we have anyone talented enough to graduate early and transfer to a much better program.

    Lewis meant his academics were on track to graduate early and he intended to do that.

    Yep...and Lewis made that case after being on campus for 3 months. Everyone's on track to graduate in 4 years during their first semester.

    What i meant was, Lewis wasn't suggesting he would leave early for the nfl draft..he was talking about graduating. You know maybe the kid has his priorities straight and a good head on his shoulders and will use football to ge an education, the way it's intended. He also may intend to take extra hours to graduate early like Kevin fouquier

    Half the improvement will be Napier knowing the right QB to pick, picking him, then tailoring his offense to work with what he has. Then sticking with the man unless events force his hand.

    We have plenty of skill position talent to do what we need on offense. We needed an instruction upgrade.

    His son played for us recently and graduated in 3 years and didn't finish his eligibility to pursue his career.

    Give him a reasonable scheme and a smart coach, and he'll sail through the Sun Belt. So will Lewis, and perhaps the others.

    Our problem was not at quarterback. It was at play-calling, scheming, and developing a game plan.
    At some point, a player's development has to include their actual growth from hard work, preparation and training. Based on reports we've heard for years, I don't think his lack of progression is all on the coaches. I'm sure Hud's staff would have loved having him step up and be the next Broadway. While I think the kid has some tools and I really anticipate him having a solid senior year and being our starter, I just think there have been things that he's done on his own that have kept him from being the player he could be.
