    The most popular guy in town is the backup quarterback. Or so the saying goes. Kyle Orton and Mark Sanchez can certainly attest to that notion.

    Schrock is going to eventually earn a scholarship.

    The guy is a legacy coming from the Detmer family. Unless he leaves willingly he isn't going anywhere.

    Kudos to JS for working his butt off and trying to make a dent in the 2-deep.

    So we're now looking at the possibility of having six scholarship quarterbacks. One junior, two sophmores, two redshirt freshmen, and one true freshman. Something has got to give.

    Something about a 6' 4" 215 qb sounds great to me. I have said before and it is evident here. THere is nothing more impressive on the gridiron than a kid who is determined to prove something. Would not mind seeing schrock out there on the field if he truly earns it

    So CU is running a charity instead of winning football games?

    I agree with you on the idea that everyone on scholly should have to earn their spot.

    At the same time Sonny Detmer is a very well connected coach who is highly respected in his part of Texas. He not only puts out a number of D1 players but has connections to other coaches who do as well. Not a good idea to get on his wrong side.

    It will be an interesting test for the coaches. Carrying six non-senior QBs is overkill and it will prevent us from recruiting the position effectively for at least 2013.

    Not only that, but the guys on the team won't get any meaningful reps

    Yeah, I have no idea what the 5th and 6th string QBs would do.

    Scholarships are one year, but it's pretty bush league to take one away if he practices and knows the plays just isn't good enough. Combined with what Mtn said it probably won't get taken away and I wonder if it was a way for us to help get back into Texas as well as "stay in the family." If he wasn't a scholarship type of player in the first place then he never should have been given one. That falls on Embree, not Dorman. They knew he was a project coming in.

    College football is a business an if you're not contributing, why should you be on a scholarship? Dorman shouldn't have been offered but I think that was the result of the staff scrambling to get some QB depth.

    Then they must suffer for it. If it was a Hawk player then I could maybe see it. They made their own bed, now they have to lie in it.

    And you don't contribute to society, but we let you still live in it.

    Uh yes I do but that's beside the point.

    If scholarships are year to year then why shouldn't you face the consequences if you don't perform? Academic scholarships can be revoked for not getting goo enough grades, is that different than football and performance? It's a touchy subject and I can see both sides of the argument but idk just seems like someone shouldn't get a free pass for 4-5.

    Who says he's really getting a free pass though? If he's skipping workouts, not brushing up on his playbook and practicing his timing with the 4th stringers then I would also say he needs to be shown the door. There's no indication that it isn't the case. If it is, it's ok. Embree let go a lot of people that weren't doing what they were supposed to in the classroom and on the field. Accountability needs to be held for and Embree's culture is a lot different than the former regime's. He can discuss with Dorman his options at the end of the spring. If he leaves then good luck to him, but if he doesn't that's fine. He's still a Buff until proven otherwise.

    At some point though, hardwork isn't enough. You need results and I haven't read a thing about him progressing any since he got to campus. Maybe he's a late bloomer, but it may be too late with who we're getting at QB, I don't know but I'd like to use that scholarship on someone who can come in and contribute. I would love to be wrong about him saying that.
