    I would like to remind everyone that Gibbs didn't make the field in last years OOC schedule because he probably wasn't ready and is now the starting quarterback. I am not sure Heide is ready to run this offense yet either. It's a lot to ask of a true freshman even if they are extremely talented. I don't expect to see him again unless both J'bore and Kanin are injured.

    He also had a senior, junior and sophomore QB ahead of him on the depth chart with no injuries. The Pine Bluff game was essentially the second game of the season and even in a blowout it's difficult to play 3 QBs. I'm of the belief that if TC had gone down with an injury that would've spanned a few games we'd have seen at least a little of J'Bore.

    The situation is totally different. Injured starter, a JR and 2 true freshman at QB. I can understand somewhat trying to save his redshirt but the kid needs game time too. What happens if there are injuries and he's thrust into the Bison game mid 3rd quarter of a tight game and his previous game snaps were against a transitioning D2 team. I don't think the kid should start this week but if we get up by 2-3 scores in the 3rd I'd like to see him out there running some offense. Heck I'm also not opposed to a Tyler Duffy situation. Give him the 3rd possession or the first full possession of the 2nd quarter. He's a smart kid, give him a limited package if you're worried about overwhelming him.

    Just my 2 cents

    I think a Heide redshirt is ideal to get him a class behind Gibbs. But I would still like to see him play in these early season blowouts. Gets him ready just in case we would need him in conference play. What are the odds Gibbs gets hurt after OOC is over? Decent odds I guess. Then redshirt Heide next year. If Gibbs gets hurt next year then you redshirt Heide the next year. I think you need to prepare Heide and I would bet some major money one of the next 3 years he will be able to get a red shirt.

    Okay but we are not NDSU by any means nor do we have the resources to pay guarantees. Maybe we should load up Mt Rushmore on wheels move it to Huron or somewhere near Brookings. Then they will come. A pun intended. On a serious note fans from the east when arriving in Brookings have asked how far is to Mt. Rushmore? But I digress everyone hates the Drake.

    Great idea. Then we can finally merge the 2 Dakotas and split it into East Dakota and West Dakota.

    A better idea yet! The Black Hills Tourism groups may object to the Mt. Rushmore move however!

    I'm not down on Kanin at all.

    Yes, he missed some throws. People miss throws. He also made a couple pretty good throws.

    Doesn't matter who is taking snaps behind the line, I'll be supporting them.

    Honestly, if something else should happen to Gibbs (hopefully not, but it's Football), it was good for Nelson to have these games.

    I too, thought the game plans for both of the last 2 games were pretty vanilla. And they were just trying to keep things basic.

    I also think that Kanin will be working his butt off to be ready to go. He's not going to just roll over.

    Nelson is far from perfect, but I think he's performing pretty decent for a backup QB with two career starts.

    So far he is 18-26 (69% completion) for 267 yards and 3 TD's.

    Yeah, he's made some bad throws, had a couple bad TO's on fumbles, and made a few poor decisions.

    But he's also a backup QB making his first two starts of his career, and I think has admirably performed to those expectations.

    You have to factor in who those starts were against.
