I disagree with you and agree with DCS. Tevin would have been an improvement over Vad Lee for the 2013 season. But DCS will not agree with me going foreward because I feel that Vad Lee digressed from 2012 thru 2013, and then out the door. He was definitely "coached down". I believe in his own mind, Vad saw himself and his talents degrading the longer he was in our program. But just the fact that this debate is taking place is scary. That it is open for discussion that Tevin was actually a better fit than the "Savior Vad Lee" is sobering. And here is the kicker: Justin Thomas could not beat out Vad Lee. Are we going to be discussing the games we wished we had Vad back for at the end of the 2014 season?Come on cheese! You tell me what games Tevin wins in 2013 if he is the starting QB.
VT - nope. Tevin lost to them for two years. He lost last season when our D held them to 17 points.
Miami - nope. We got beat soundly even with Miami's 5 turnovers.
BYU - nope. Russel Wilson couldn't have won that game for us.
UGA - nope. The only reason we had the big lead was because we surprised them in the passing game. Tevin couldn't have made those throws.
Clemson - nope. They were out of our league.
Ole Miss - maybe. I doubt it though. Once Nkemdiche (sp?) entered the game he shut our offense down.
With Tevin, we were a 7 win team for 2.5 seasons. I just can't understand the logic that says we would have been better with him.
I know it is popular know to lay all the blame at the feet of Vad now that he is gone, but the truth is our vaunted offensive line let defenders pour through this season like a screen door on a submarine. Vad was indecisive because he generally was trying to read 2 or 3 D lineman moments after the snap - instead of just reading the one. Granted - we had injuries and they were hurt. But they would have been hurt if Tevin played as well. We would have still finished 7-6, and we would still be saying "wait till next year"!
