    It's not like Webb looks like the worse QB in football but he poses no, I mean virtually 0 threat for getting the ball deep. We need a spark, and we know the game is out of reach anyway.

    Webb's stats for 1st half:
    8 for 19 for 87 yards

    You are right-forgot to mention that-not just backbreaking but a stupid throw-get it out of bounds and live for another down.

    I saw him dressed but I am 100% against throwing him in this season at all. Especially against teams that are going to run over our line. Don't need him to get hurt worse. Let him take the offseason to bulk up more, keep studying film this season and come out firing in spring practice.

    He does have to be the early pick for 1st team QB by the end of spring ball.

    Why would you change QB's for the 2nd half? It's not like things are going badly.

    I am totally disappointed we are this far into a runaway blowout where the other team has already put in their 2nd string QB and we refuse to give Wood a chance to show what he's got when the game is totally out of reach and Webb has failed to engineer one TD.

    Again, no way this is all his fault, in fact at this point I think most of the fault is on GB b/c he put his Freshman in a lose-lose position by going single coverage instead of zone. But Webb is not having a great game and we have nothing to lose. VERY FRUSTRATING! :bang:

    Embree is to stuborn. If Wood shows himself to be capable then Imbree looks as clueless as he is at most other things.

    I hate to harp on it, but the WCO is complicated. QB's need reps more reps, reps and then some more reps. If you remember back to the JK/GB days, people always wondered JK stayed in when the game was out of reach, he was injured, or just plain wasn't getting it done. The answer is JK got all the reps. I would bet JWebb gets all the reps. He will play the whole game, no matter what the score is.

    That dude has had more reps than necessary, going back to his KU days, to prove that he can lead a team to victory. He is on his way from what someone else said the other day on AB, to being the losingest QB of all time in the BCS or maybe even major college football.

    Get him the **ck out. This season is over and Embree's job is potentially on the line. Put Wood in and sink or swim with him the rest of the year.

    I'm talking practice reps. There is a good chance Wood and Hirsch don't know the offense very well.

    Yup, cause webb has been in the offense for a year and took every significant snap during the spring. oh wait, that's Wood.

    And what offense? it has completely changed in the last month.

    Embree showed he is a clown tonight. Take the opportunity to give others a chance to show what they can do. Too bad EB and Brownie don't have back-ups to sub for them. They all suck.

    I totally don't get why they didn't put Wood in for all or most of the 2nd half. Game out of reach, Webb not playing well all season-and hasn't played that well his whole career. He is literally in over his head trying to be starting QB on a BCS team.

    Wood has the raw skills but not enough reps. So freaking get him some reps in a game like this in front of 90k opposing fans. See what he's got. The handful of reps he got, he actually looked pretty good.

    He probably is not our saviour-we need a saviour beyond QB, but if we have one it is either Dillon or Sefo. But he's gotta be better than Webb. And if he isn't who cares?

    And this is a perfect reason why the WCO is a horrible choice for college. The backup QB is miles behind the starter for knowledge/development/implementation, and even then, it takes the starter TONS of time to just be competent.
