Thread: 2019 QB starter

    I think the emergence of our running game this season takes a little pressure off of next year's starting QB. They need to make good decisions and distribute the ball well, but we can win a lot of games next year relying on running the ball. Especially if that starting QB has some wheels too.

    Outside of Drake and UM, what's our non conference schedule look like next season? Starting your career and QB on the road in a Big 10 stadium isn't ideal, but it's the gophers, so maybe it doesn't matter.

    There was a picture somewhere on Twitter in the last week or two of all the freshmen who are redshirting. Many of them were in shorts and sleeveless shirts. To say that Gibbs looks impressive would be an understatement. Someone commented that he looks like a "grown-ass man" which is an accurate description. If he has any kind of speed, he is going to be a real threat as a running QB. Hopefully he also can throw the ball well.

    Sell said on a pregame show a few weeks ago that Southern Utah was coming in and another school would also be coming to Brookings but didn’t say which one as they were still finalizing details.

    Everything I’ve heard about Gibbs is that he has a long ways to go. Hopefully Gibbs and Nelson can have big springs to get ready for next fall.

    2019 qb will be a big key. Will Gibbs be ready mentally next year? It seemed odd he got no game reps this year with the new redshirt rule. I don’t see next years team “loaded” on defense. The secondary will struggle with or without defensive line pressure next year and besides #9 and #27 they didn’t have a great year in the secondary. Losing two LBs #53 and #31 will need replacement as well.

    I've heard this sentiment as well. One statement regarding Gibbs was directly from one of our current starting defensive players. "he isn't very good" was the comment made.

    Just because he looks the part doesn't make him a good QB. Let the guys we have on the roster earn their keep. If we add a transfer to the mix, I'm all for it. Especially at that position.

    Seven Wilson and Jaden Snyder can help replace Cox and Kleinschmidt. It'd be awesome to see Williams make strides at safety.

    Did I break a board rule that I'm unaware of?

    Any chance the surprise will be revealed soon? I could really use a Festivus Miracle after this week of Vikes and Jacks football.
