Texas A&M sure suffered...

Meanwhile, O'Connor is laughing his ass off right now.
Johnny Football enrolled early in January 2011 and then redshirted. He had experienced 2 spring practices and 2 preseason camps before stepping on the field.
Johnny Manziel Biography
Last time we went to the Rose Bowl, it was with a dual-threat QB. Just say'n...
at all of you anti-Maxwell boners.
I think Coach D is just showing some confidence in Maxwell. He did improve over the year and also played through some injuries.
If Terry comes in and blows the coaches away during camp, he'll end up as the starter.
Frankly I wouldn't be too surprised to see a situation similar to Notre Dame where you have Terry getting a decent # of snaps and Maxwell coming in as a reliever to close out games. It seems like we could be a mirror image if Sims comes back as the big tight end target, and the defense comes back with solid senior leader and talent everywhere.
Whoops, this was the other "tidbit"
"Still got to look into it with my school and my coach, but I'd love to enroll early," Terry said. "They want me to learn the playbook real quick, stuff like that. I want to enroll as early as I can."
Except Golson is a RS Freshman, not a true Freshman
True. Do you know how many passes Bobby threw in that game?
pretty much agree with this....oline and roushar were a helluva lot more of the problem than AM but he was VERY bad at times too: especially against Nwestern and Minnesota
. The ONE thing Maxwell doesn't get credit for is the toughness he showed overall this year: he took a tremendous beating. If you isolated the hits he took, you'd be amazed he made it through the whole year. Fucking oline........
Really? I didn't see much improvement.
In fact, his performance in the Minnesota game was unbelievably bad.
He had an injured throwing shoulder
AS I said above, he played VERY poorly vs. Nwestern and Minny....which is when Coach D' came out and said he was beat up pretty bad. I started to think about some of the crushing hits he took and they were.........plentiful throughout the year. Not an excuse, just a fact.
QB's that get beat up like that early in their career go one of two ways: they either suck it up and play through it or wither away. I sincerely hope he can get through it for obvious reasons. We'll start to see if he can against TCU. They have some formidable Def. Ends that will give our very avg. tackles all they can handle. (understatement)

I just hope the OL comes out strong next year. Can't risk Maxwell getting David Carr Syndrome...in college the clock is always ticking and Maxwell only has a year left.
If the OL is shit, it won't matter who the QB is
At least someone like O'Connor or Terry could provide some mobility. We all talked about how much more mobile Maxwell would be, but Terry is a pass-first dual threat and O'Connor is the same (recruited as a Dan Persa type player for Northwestern).
The Chicago Bears offensive line is shit.
The last 16 games Cutler has started and finished: 14-2
The other 8 games he was out during that span: 1-7
It always matters who the QB is.
As I stated on a thread a few weeks ago the QB competition should be wide open. It's heathy and good for the team. I think Terry will get a shot along with O'Conner. If Terry can get enrolled early that would be huge for his chances.
The moment is eternal

In 07, Todd Beockman was a Heismans hopeful and led osu to the national championship game. In 08, he struggled early, and they replaced him with true freshman Pryor, and still managed to go to the fiesta bowl.. I would prefer to have an experienced Maxwell as our leader next year, but if he struggles early, O'Connor/Terry.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
I think Super Max will have a good season!
As many as he needed to?
Dominate oline and RB, something I wouldn't count on MSU having next year.

8 passes. Do you think this will get it done in 2013?
Do we get the 87' line and Lo White?
