Clausen getting back to work

Clausen is going to do whatever it takes to become a decent NFL QB. He's more than got the passion and work ethic.

The big question is, can he become the leader he needs to be to be good or great?

Now, as much as we disagree on Clausen....i agree. I don't question his work ethic or passion for football. He is an overachiever imo.

my only question is if he has reached a level where simply working hard and wanting it aren't enough to overcome what he lacks in just raw talent and intangibles.

I know Clausen will be at Notre Dame all semester. I hope whoever he works w/ and wherever it is....it doesn't involve the people from his past.

I refuse to get excited about him ever again until he shows up and acts like a leader on the field.

Excuse me but please find the post where I said "TJ Yates is going to be a good NFL QB". I'm pretty sure I never said that. The "Thank You TJ!" above my avatar is just me being greatful for everything he did at UNC. He broke most of our passing records and was a great person on and off the field. Excuse me for being a fan and supporting one of the best QB's in UNC history.

well you gotta admit it is sad that tj is your best qb ever

He appears to just be missing the intangibles, something said about him before he came out of Notre Dame.

Hey it's not like UNC is a football powerhouse. I know what we are and that's a basketball school. Our football program is getting better under Butch Davis but no elite high school QB's are going to come to UNC. They all go to the big football schools like USC, Florida, Ohio State, Alabama and Texas. If TJ had played his whole career like he did his senior year you wouldn't think it's all that sad. Dude was amazing last year.

Good, maybe he can make an improvement from year 1 to 2 like he did at ND.

Yeah I was very excited when we got Williams. Not sure if he'll redshirt with Renner in line to start. Like I said our football program is getting better. I can't remember but I think Yates was a 2* recruit from the Bunting era. He probably had as good a career at UNC as he could've had.

Bryn Renner was also a 4 star QB in his class, should have a nice Competition between him and Williams. Really excited to see what Gio can do (hopefully he stays healthy this season)

I forgot about Gio. With Houston coming back and we might possibly land Savon Huggins we'll be stacked at RB for years to come.

I don't question his work ethic at all, but sadly, not everyone who works hard becomes great :(
