This is the first time,
A question for discussion: Who gives UW a better chance at winning, on the road, AH or Jack Coan?
It's really hard to tell right now as Coan was 21-30 passing and showed he could make some throws that AH can't make,
but he also didn't wow anyone. Also fumbled twice.
However, I feel that if PC is bold enough to call some read-options ala Bart Houston that we could rush for more yards than we are expected to. The key is converting 3rd downs.
elsmith, that I'm going to take you to task on a totally ridiculous comment re: Hornibrook. I've disagreed with you in the past re: AH, but his time you're over the edge. There isn't a throw Jack Coan can make, that Hornibrook can't. That is 100% fabrication on your part. You tell me which throws Coan makes that AH can't. Hornibrook has decision-making challenges and his lack of athleticism hinders him in the pocket. But I can assure you, he can pretty much make all the throws. Jack Coan cannot ... which is part of the reason Coan is the back-up QB. Keep in mind, AH won the college QB completion at the Manning QB Academy this past summer. A camp & competition which included some pretty big-name college QB's ... Perhaps you need to watch video of AH's performances vs BYU and Miami in 2017 , and the 4th qtr vs Iowa in 2018, just for starters, to jolt your memory as to what AH is capable of. Anxiously awaiting waiting your reply ... BTW, elsmith, here's a repost of , before you completely lost your perspective on the Badger QB situation: a post from you, dated 11/26/17
Graham Mertz led his team to a state championship yesterday. Here is his statline:
24-30 for 462 yards and 4 td. Also ran had a scramble for 15 yards with 49 secondsn left for the game-winning td.
Future for qb looks good at UW with Hornbrook still having 1-2 more years and then a experienced Coan should take over before Mertz settles in.
