Sportsline glog about VanCamp

"Though this [Texas] game was decided long ago, Jeff Van Camp has looked rusty in mop-up duty for FAU, going 2 for 8 for 2 yards. It's probably a good decision by Schnellenberger to get his backup QB some reps here. In this game, he threw the ball worse than a can of Van Camp's Baked Beans would have."

ouch.

If it's the truth…speak it! The guy looked terrible. I'll give him the benefit of doubt in that he's never taken a snap with 90+K fans around, or less by that time, so the nerves could have been there. We need to go up 40 on UAB this weekend to give him some more reps.

He took snaps at Florida…no excuses play like a champion.  Nice kid but I'm looking to the future with Wilbert/Kooi

Totally agree…

One could say it was because he was throwing to the first team, but the fact was he wasn't…he was throwing to the guys he used to throwing to - 2nd team…

All the more reason to at least move the ball…

On a positive note, he's got some wheels for his size…

But we don't need another Clayton…we need a solid back up to Rusty…

He was 2-for-5 against UF but I don't remember if he earned a first down.

Fact is, VanCamp just doesn't have enough experience. I do think he'll do fine against some of the weaker SBC teams though.

Re: Sportsline glog about VanCamp

Do you really want to waste a Red-Shirt on Kooi or Wibert to play back-up this year - I think VanCamp will do fine as a back-up and has proven it during both spring & fall camps.

The guys doesn't much playing experience, but look at the demeanor at that period of the game - kind of a tough situation and it can be tough to get ready on a wimps in those conditions (he should always be prepared, but when you have Rusty in there, you expect him to be there for the long haul).

The kid has a good arm & is very good on his feet, still need a bit move maturing, there are times he doesn't make the best decisions, but heck we said that about Rusty once upon a time.

Re: Sportsline glog about VanCamp

He was thrown into a very difficult position against Texas. He can rebound and have a good showing the next time he sees the field.


Look at the QB for UCLA against Tennessee. Was the third string QB, but got the start due to injuries. 4 picks in the first half and the kid turns it around and plays a virtually flawless second hlaf to lead UCLA to the upset win.


I am not saying that Van Camp can do something quite as dramatic, but I definitely think we will see some strong improvement from him.

GO OWLS!!!

You can run kitties, but you can't hide!!!

Well, that is a good question…it depends on who you were asking at the time…….

Us after the 6-0 loss on National TV:

He sucks x 10,000 on crack.

Howard:

He has great potential.

So, now, on Vancamp:

Us:

Um, er…well, *sigh*…doh!

Howard:

He hasn't shown me he is ready to play in a game. (basically to that effect)

:-\

Re: Sportsline glog about VanCamp

I believe Jeff Van Camp will do just fine. If you watched the game he played when the second string was in and Texas kept there 1st string in the game. Lets give him a chance the only way any one will et better is to have reps, Rusty got his now give to Jeff.  Go owls, beat UAB
