Talk of Hurts to FAU
d-owl saidI wish as he would run all over C USA like there was no tomorrow; however - the big question is could he fend off CRob's arm, because you know – CROB has a strong arm and it's hard to bench him because he can throw the football really, really far! I'm just playing lol.Posted On: Jan 11th 2019, 12:33 PM
MANY times TOO FAR! He hits a wide open Durante early 2nd half of the UNCC game it was game over!!! He overthrew badly, still gotta learn more touch!
We should remember, however, the jumps that QBs tend to make between their first and second years as starters.
I give you, for reference, Mason Fine and Mckenzie Milton, who are two of the top passers in the G5 and possibly CFB.

What you really should be looking at are (1) rating and (2) TD-Int ratio, both of which dramatically improve from a freshman to sophomore season.
Chris Robison: https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/chris-robison-1.html
A look at Chris reveals a bad TD-Int ratio but more than respectable rating. He still has a ton of potential and I would not be opposed to giving him the keys to our future. He certainly has the ability to take us to the next level.
So ask yourself this: would you want a grad transfer to come in this year and make us good this year but along the way kill Chris' confidence and possibly force him to transfer? Not to mention the fact that Jalen is most liekly following Enos to Miami, I would say stick with Chris.
Chris had an offer, and enrolled at, Oklahoma for a reason: the kid can throw footballs and read defenses. Last year we endured growing pains. This coming year we reap the rewards.

Absolutely - to me it's a no brainer. Hurts comes here, he plays - and Chris will have to be mature and deal with it. I am not exactly sold on Chris. I understand he was a frosh and there are examples of shaky freshman years leading to great careers down the road. I didn't see enough this year to make me feel confident it will be a given with him. Hopefully he takes the next step. With that said, it's a non-issue since Jalen isn't coming here.
jgf2017 saidIím not completely sure about Robison either but I do know one thing. Our receivers were terrible and heís got a good enough arm and head on his shoulders to throw for a lot of yards and win a lot of games in the process if we have good receivers. Remember another thing. Our running backs in 2018 were not good pass catchers, most evidenced by Motorís drop that cost us the MTSU game. The numbers Robison put up weíre expected given those shortcomings. Durante canít catch remember that. If Kyle Davis is great Robison should throw for a lot of yards and weíll win a lot of games. There is Tronti too!Posted On: Jan 11th 2019, 6:17 PM
I hear you: Durante was not perfect, but arguably as good a deep threat as we have ever had. Willie Wright regressed for whatever reason, but we know what he is capable of. We still had the best TE in the conference - so to me there were weapons. I'll give you the WRs greatly underperformed, but too often Chris didn't show to me he had a good head on his shoulders with some ridiculous decision making (e.g., throwing balls out of bounds on 4th down smh) and made countless throws (overthrows, lofting the ball) that made me shake my head. He just seems like Parr to me, the difference being he received an OU offer and likes to dance (sorry, had to do it lol).
