Don’t shoot the messenger. Heard DJ has looked great

in practice which is why coaches will not bench him. They are hopeful it translates soon to the field.

Talked to someone who knows. DJ has looked very, very good. But he has looked good for 3 weeks.

My feeling on practice time being 'good' says actually the opposite. Looking good in practice now means he didn't look good in practice before when they were willing to go with him and not give another QB a chance. Either way it's showing bad #### coaching when game time reality catches up with 'practice' and the player's ability clearly doesn't look like any 5 star prospect from other top programs.

Not sure how to translate your “feelings” into actual useful info. DJ looked like a 5* in HS and in camps vs other top competition. Looked great in two games last year. He has struggled to find his way this year and the supporting cast has done him few favors. I am sure you were great at everything you attempted right out of the box and never faced periods of struggle. Must be nice to be you but the rest of us are human.

Easy to look good in the backyard playing catch with the equipment manager. Just like Monte always says his batters look great all week in the cage.

Coaches been telling us that all season. Obviously he looks better than TP, or he would have gotten a shot. Hopefully he's figured out how to read for today's game, if not, it'll be a long day and we'll see TP in the 2nd half.

tossing the ball around in your backyard.

TP is not going to play. He hasn’t played all year and isn’t randomly playing today.


I’m just telling you that DJ has looked excellent. Especially with Ngata out, I doubt it translates to field unfortunately. Our WRs suck at catching anyway.

You missed my point entirely on TP getting playing time. I said if DJ hasn't figured it out, tp will play in the 2nd half should the score get out of hand in Pitts favor.

Never said he wasn't stressed in practice. All one has to look at is Oklahoma. Lincoln ain't no dummy either. I'm sure ratler looked great in practice too, hence the starts... But Oklahoma was fortunate they didn't play anyone with a pulse until Texas or they'd be in the same shape we are.

Was a five star, number 1 QB in high school. That isn’t TP. That is essentially like having another Trevor Lawrence on the bench. If that was the case I would say go for it. Can’t even compare the two

TP was very highly rated as a duel threat QB coming into our program, so making thge comparison to Oklahoma is not the least bit stretching it.

Yes, TP was a 4 or 5 star.

I do not know or have any information
My bet there is a NO contact on him in practice
Giving him a false security
Noticed in games lot of times his foot work is like
he is either standing in concrete or on a fire pit
Does not look relaxed or under control
Also being right handed standing with his right foot towards the line
Most right handed QB put their left towards the line waiting on the snap

Actually, case in point. My bud brewski (d. brewer) looks great in BP. He can hit. But if you watched him last year, in game AB's he'd bite on the outside change almost every ab...

That said, he worked really hard here in Lexington over the summer to lay off that change and did pretty good. Hoping it will translate in the spring.

Well, he is a nice-looking young man, but I don't think that this will help him go thru his progressions in the pocket. ;)

Maybe you missed the part of Tony Elliott's comments ( after the Syracuse game) that the reason he has not been benched is because he does not want to "disrupt his rhythm" ."REALLY, WHAT RHYTHM"?
And what is your definition of "soon"? How soon is it before it's to late to replace him with a quarterback that might win this game and save the season, because if they go down today ,there is no more season to save outside of praying that we can even beat the coots.
Oh, and just a personal observation, He has not looked all that good all year long.
