Congratulations to Wilson. Now let's see how he does against some real teams this year.

I'll believe that Mike Glennon is good when I see it though.

Ask VaTech fans about their OC and I'm sure they would tell you that under a different OC, Glennon probably could have succeeded.

god no sean wouldnt have. i remember the georgia game. wasnt the lines fault, wasnt OC, he constantly stares down wrs, or throws it to a spot regardless if a lb is standing right there. the best qb the 1st half was eddie royal. sean singlehandedly lost us the bowl game against georgia. he was worse than delhomme against zona and philly combined, as he took a 17 point lead and gave them 3 turnovers in 4 possesions (i think the other was a fuble by rb), and we were down after that poo head was done. that little bitch sucked hard 2 games a year, but was gold against slow defenses. give him a defense that put a hand up and he got scared and threw ints out the ass (his last 2 seasons started with an INT to ECU on the very first pass attempt). could not see or avoid pressure that came right at his face. but he is missed as he was better than what vt has as backups now.

i would love to have his bro here. cant be worse than juju clayton or marcus davis (now at wr). plus he is a frign giant with a good arm (accuracy and decision making idk).

the OC wont stick to what works thats my problem with the idiot. we run the ball well up the gut, he stops and goes to the edges. he continues to try the edge until it works. i swear he wont stick to what works, and when something doesnt he continues to try it until it works or the games over. kansas game, ore runs rampent in the 3rd quarter not heard from again in the 4th WTF! bama, williams runs well against them, goes to the passing game time and time again in the 2nd half. hell husker game, 3 attempts in the 4th q i believe, 3 in the 3rd as well. yet williams had 80+ in the 1st half, and 107 on the game. fool wont stick to what works and wont get away from plays that arnt.

rant over.

as for wilson imo 2nd best qb in the acc atm. harris has taken the lead, as his wr are catching the ball, and he is hitting them in space, not forcing it (gt game). yeah wilson isnt doing any thing different, but harris has that O clicking, the qb has been da Us missing cog for some time now, and with him there they can do what they will on offense so far. he does have a running game unlike wilson though, but cant take anything away for his amazing start thus far against ranked opponents.

IMO these 2 FCS games is what State, and our offense in particular, needed to really start to get in a rhythm. I expect Russell to be able to move the ball down the field against Pitt this weekend. Also, the last 2 games we've seen Russell take off and run, which is something he seemed hesitant to do in the SC game.

Another big factor that you have to take into account about Russell's low completion percentage is that he threw the ball away a lot, instead of trying to force the ball down field.

With the little bit that I've seen Glennon play this year, it's obvious that he still has a ways to go before he can be a legitimate starter. However, he's still a hell of a lot better than the backups we had last year.

I understand your opinion on Glennon. We will see how Mike does he could be taking over this team as soon as next year. Right now TOB said he is ahead of where Matt Ryan was at the same point in his career. TOB recruited both and coached both of them so I trust his opinion.

Wilson's biggest problem is not anything he does as much as it is what his WRs don't do. They drop the ball in big moments and it needs to stop. If his receivers caught half the balls that they drop then his stats would be a lot more inflated. Harris is a really good QB but he is playing with a supporting cast that is better than any other cast in the ACC...That has to count for something.

I mean I'm not expecting him to do any worse than what he did against "real" teams last year. 17 TDs and 1 INT...

The problem is that now most of these ACC opponents have faced him before and the teams that didn't will have plenty of tape to pick up on his tendencies. He may still do well, but it won't be quite as easy for him this year, IMO.

We will see what happens. I am by no means guaranteeing that he will be First team QB this year. The thing about Wilson is that it doesn't really matter if you pick up on his tendencies because he isn't going to force anything. He will simply go through his progressions and find the open guy, throw it away, or run. He's not going to force it to a receiver and risk a pick. He was also a freshmen last year and admits that he knew very little of the offensive playbook at the time. So they might have picked up on his tendencies from last year but this year there is a whole new side of the playbook that he knows.

I know one thing for sure...there is no way in hell that Glennon is gonna make plays out of nothing like Russell Wilson does. That Pitt defense had him dead to rights in the backfield a couple of times and he still found a way to keep the play alive.

Your team won't be nearly as good when Wilson leaves.

He does make plays out of nothing at all.

I do think RW is a good example of why recruiting rankings sometimes don't mean squat. Did you hear that Mike Paulus?

What a game this kid had. I may have to get on the bandwagon soon.

My god, just got back a little while ago. That game was f*cking awesome... I was proud of our fans in the last minutes of the game, was actually really loud. Tony Baker was having a field day and Russell Wilson was moving around great and didn't really force any balls, while making some great throws. Our D was struggling throughout the game, but they really stepped up in the fourth quarter. Our special teams needs some work, though. 1 missed Fg, blocked fg, and Pitt was getting great field position off kick returns. I don't really have room to complain though, we got the W, really happy with our overall performance.
