The Better of Two Evils

After the Nebraska game, I read various articles from the media that state Rusty Smith's chances of being drafted into the NFL have significantly decreased, and if FAU's all-time leading passer cannot prove himself against a tough BCS opponent (South Carolina), he will likely not be drafted.

So would fans rather get a BCS win with horrible #s from Smith….or….. great #s from Smith, but with another BCS loss????

So you would rather get a meaningless OOC win (granted against BCS team), than increase FAU's chances of getting their first player ever drafted?

Re: The Better of Two Evils

This might be the most intriguing poll ever.


I know this is all hypothetical, but I don't think FAU could win without Rusty putting up spectacular numbers. Since we are discussing something completely hypothetical I say an FAU win is more important than Rusty's personal numbers. We all know that you don't have to get drafted to be a success in the NFL.

Yes,

I would rather have the win then Rusty having a huge day and losing.

A WIN over a SEC team would do wonders for the program and the confrence, which leads to more exposure, better recruits, which would lead to more Draft picks.

I like Rusty a lot. I hope he does well and makes the Draft and the NFL.

But the team and the program are MUCH bigger then one person.

If you ask Rusty Ill bet he'd rather win then have great personal stats.

Re: The Better of Two Evils

yeah it is a team, think of the positives, beside the win to a SEC team, how about the defense, if we keep USC to only seven, that is remarkable, so Smith has bad numbers, the other positives out weigh the 1 negative.

I have to believe that if Rusty cannot engineer a win South Carolina, he will go as a FA. He's been our best QB in the program's short history so we believe he's NFL material but compared to other QB's nationally, especially since they're only going to draft a handful of QBs at best, he's likely not a priority for teams.

If the poll was to either take a win, or guarantee rusty gets drafted, I would go with rusty.  But simply putting up good numbers won't guarantee that.  While he can be successful whether drafted or FA, I think FAU needs to get someone drafted to show good recruits you can go to FAU and get drafted.  So, for me, it's not as much about rusty getting drafted as it is about having FAU getting someone drafted…and rusty is our best shot.
