    He wouldn't be losing his spot to injury. He'd be losing his spot to a more productive player. This exact thing happened in 2014 when Laskey went out. And teh coach has to be willing to sit a starter if someone is better than them. You can't just play TM because it's his spot.

    I agree, that's what I was trying to say too. I may be disagreed with, but I think a healthy TM is the best QB. Whether or not TO starts or how much he plays won't have anything to do with TM having been injured past tense. It will be how TM is playing and/or if he is injured present tense.

    I understand that TM knows the entire playbook but what good does it do if he turns the ball over or doesn't make the right reads? If our blocking and execution is a lot better and more focused with a smaller playbook, then why don't we just run a smaller playbook?

    Not just that game. They were alternating in the games at the beginning of the season. Fridge would be coaching one on the sideline, and the one on the field would start to falter, and he’d swap quarterbacks. Then he’d coach the other guy on the sidelines and eventually send him back in, playing better.
    I think both Goose and Crenshaw played better that way. They pushed each other, and Fridge had time to coach up the other player and adapt to the game.
    Crenshaw stopped appearing after a few games. I remember it as wanting to go somewhere else and have the job to himself, but I could be wrong. I think Godsey was better during the first part of the season when there was a platoon, and the offense was better.

    Yeah I just don't remember. I only remember the bigger games from that season, and I don't recall Crenshaw playing against NC State, Clemson, or Georgia. But I was at BDS for FSU and I absolutely remember him rotating in and out for that game. It was probably the earlier games like you say. We almost lost to UCF that year but I didn't get to see or listen to that game.

    You bring TQM back to start, but that doesn't mean he's not on a short leash. If he flounders, bring in TO. We're both right.

    CPJ can solve for all this with first play TM at AB throwback to TO for the score. It is almost certainly in the playbook.

    Can’t crown Tobias starter when he slips on only pass attempt. Thats literally ringing dinner bell for UNC. We ran maybe 5-6 plays against VT, UNC won’t flinch in the Tight Formation with Tobias under Center, I think Tobias is the better QB but Johnson doesn’t need to name him starter it would hurt GT, hope Paul Lets him start without saying a word to media.

    Long time lurker first time poster... just wanted to point out that CPJ said something very similar before the VT game -- and yet Tobias started.

    From AJC prior to VT:
    Asked if Marshall would start, Johnson replied, “I don’t know. Why wouldn’t he?”

    From AJC prior to UNC:
    “Yeah,” Johnson said. “I don’t see why he wouldn’t. We’ll work through that, but (Marshall) was the starter.”

    I would take anything Coach says on this matter with a big grain of salt.

    When you average 8 yards per play you don't need to pass, ever. Just keep cramming it down their throats.
