  2. Not so fast.
     
  3. Glad Downing is getting a start. Good for him.

  4. Rumor or firsthand observation?

  5. he might not have blinding speed, but do think he is reasonably quick afoot
     
  6. Max has drop foot?
     
  7. I believe Patterson at his word. Having said that, I also believe Max will get his playing time as well. If Downing is playing great he will get the most reps. Brown will get his rewards as well for his work. Max might get a series or two. I would not look for Max to play much if the Frogs are in control. Go Frogs!

  9. I don’t. Not at all.
     
  10. Who ever gives us the best chance to win should play and play the entire game. We are playing a conference game, these games are important.
     
  11. There is no such thing as an unimportant game or adversary.

  12. I take this as Max probably isn't quite ready to start and take every snap. I also take it as Downing is decent and the staff trusts him. I'd like to think Max will see some time if he's able.
     
  13. Max is ready. Just a battle for the start.

  14. Keep Iowa State guessing. I bet there is not a lot of film on Downing for them to look over.

  15. In retrospect, I walked right into that one.

  16. If Downing has been "the guy" as CGP stated, then I'm glad he's getting the start. He is the one that has the timing and chemistry with the starters, and the gameplan may have been designed around Downing's strengths. That tells me some actual coaching may be going on instead just putting players in thinking things are automatically gonna be plug-n-play. The coaches shouldn't give starting positions to anyone. The players should take them.

    That being said, I hope Downing lights it up (and we win). Force Duggan to wrestle the job away from him. They'll both be better for it.
     
  17. Did we not have a KSU backup QB we could have plugged in?
     
  18. Is too much focus being given to the QB's? In this first game at least. Maybe the Frogs are focused on the run game for a change since we are loaded with talent. A change of pace thought. Go Frogs!
     
  19. I'd settle for just being focused.

  20. We just need for one QB to be the man.
