I am a firm believer in DJ as the starter but

When does Taisun hit the portal? If we have 2+ quarters of 3 and outs with a turnover thrown in and never give the guy a chance, why should he stay? Fine DJ is the starter, but you won't even put TP in for a series where DJ could get a different perspective on what the defense is doing. I think DJ is significantly better, but he is not playing to the point that Taisun should not be getting reps.

I think the same can be said of our WR's. I heard about Ajou Ajou more than any other receiver in the off season, but have heard nothing of him this year. Who will be the first to try elsewhere? TE's had no catches Saturday. Will we see any of them jump ship? I hope that our "brilliant" offense shows up soon or I am not sure who will run it.

would be a good way to take some pressure off of DJ without the potential blowback. It just seems to be building on top of him and he can't shake it.

With the lack of talent in the running back room since Spiller took over, the pressure will only get greater on the QB and passing game for us to move the football.

We aren't even getting the RB reps. Dabo has talked about Mikey Dukes, but I don't know if he has played outside of SC State. With Shipley hurt I wonder if we give up on red shirting Mafah. On the Oline we didn't sub at all against GT. We use to sub liberally when the game was still on the line. I understand that you want the best product on the field, but substitution allows 1 guy to rest and another to get experience. It is not always about the best product for a single play.

We really need to see Mafah on the field IMO

Also Phommachanh should definitely get some reps - some significant reps I think.

He probably will because Dabo isn't playing him. As someone said earlier, this offense should have stayed on the field longer against S.C. State because they certainly could have used the extra practice. However, we did play 90 players but that seemed to be more important.

I have a hard time thinking TP is ready.

He is just back from ACL repair and did not participate in most of fall practice.

He needs more reps in practice before we throw him to the wolves.

I thought it was his Achilles but regardless physically he is cleared. He has been in the program 3 years he should know what to do. I am not advocating for him to start but when we look like we did between scores Saturday why not stick him in for a drive? If he doesn't even get a chance when DJ is stinking it up then why stay?
