Good arm, really good pocket presence, average athleticism.
I'm pretty sure your stats aren't correct.
Has he really thrown for that many yards? Seems like a lot. Anyway I agree he has really good pocket presence for a true freshman, but below average arm. I was cringing at those throws across his body, they seemed to hang in the air forever and were begging to be pick 6'd. Arizona could have had like 4 or 5 pick 6s if they were half a step faster
Agreed. Whos stats are those?
Needs to make quicker reads at times and work on his precision. Other than that, I think he looks good and seems very poised for a freshman.
I was going off rivals. Fixing...

The DBs were hawking on his balls last night. He needs to add some zip.
I think we have found our qb for the next few years. Let him put on a few pounds and get in the weight room.
Next few weeks are going to be a challenge for him but lets hope he stays healthy.
Would like to see him run on the read option, even if he is a little slower than we thought, have to a least make the defense account for him.
Coach has to get him some weapons.
I'd like to see him play looser. He's a true freshman. I can live with some mistakes if he's going for too many big plays. But I think he's trying to be too much of a game manager right now. We're not good enough on offense for the OL and skill guys to carry a QB playing the way an NFL backup does. "Just don't lose the game" isn't enough from the QB position for us. I want to see more riverboat gambler from Sefo.
And can we please try throwing a pass to the TE in the seam? We don't challenge the middle of the field. That makes the job of the opposing LBs way too easy. If none of our TEs can give us that, then go 4 WRs to open up the field.
Nik is right! Sefo looks outside. Every time.
1. Throws a better ball and has better pocket presence than I expected.
2. Disappointed he doesn't run better. Running Qbs are a must, especially in the talent void that is CU.
Very good for a true freshman, I think. He minimizes the dumb mistakes, and doesn't take sacks. Great pocket presence. He needs to get the ball to the receiver more quickly. But I think his upside is tremendous.
Seems like he has a lot of poise when the pocket breaks down...also seems to mostly keep his eyes down field. Still a little unsure of the timing plays...seemed just a little late on most of those plays last night...needs to be quicker to pull the trigger. I can't get a read on his deep ball yet...the only one he didn't short arm all night was the 75 yarder to P-Rich. He needs to follow through on those better.
On another note...most of our players looked hesitant last night. It's the first game I've seen in person so maybe you all have witnessed it already but it seems like we are still overcoming some mental uncertainty. When I watched the aggressiveness and confidence of how the Arizona players cut and exploded and got in and out of routes, it blew CU out of the water. Every move the Buffs made seemed just a little slow...and it looked like more of an uncertainty thing to me than a raw speed/quicks thing.
He is an improvement from the alternative and has a lot of upside potential. I am less concerned with Sefo then I am with the plays called for him. For instance, why did we see so many short slants in his first appearance... He was successful with those... Now everything seems like a long pass or some complicated pattern where he needs to wait for a receiver to come open. I really think the staff needs to use his skills better.
I have no idea but he is definitely less athletic than expected. He throws too "soft" in the intermediate to deep patterns which is exactly why he got picked. At this point I'm just happy we have seen something. Our ever elusive next QB has actually shown something
Cerebral, calm, very poised. No hair on fire stuff. Will get the the timing down on his long passes pretty soon, but lack of arm strength (zip) on sideline routes will make pick 6s inevitable. Can't fix that, and MM must have seen it. Not great speed running, but picks his time and running routes really well for a youngster. With a good OL and a good D, can be a successful QB for a 6 or 7 win P12 team. Sub "great" for "good" and add a win or 2. Not a superstar but a guy with an definite upside.
I disagree with all the weak arm strength comments. I thought he actually had pretty good zip on the ball. The only balls that were thrown soft seemed to be thrown off the back foot, something that can definitely be addressed. Really liked his ability to stand in the pocket and make throws, though I think he stayed a little too long at times. I think there were some plays where he could have stepped up and ran for good yardage, but forced a throw instead. Agree he needs to keep on the read option if we're going to run it. Overall, I'm optimistic.
Biggest complaint is I don't know how to pronounce his last name. Or first, I guess. Is this a football player? When is November?
I have been impressed. It is hard to expect a frosh QB to take the team on his shoulders and win. He has played well. If he progresses, he will be a very good P12 QB, and by very good, I mean upper third of the conference.
Rhymes with "She-Ho Moo-Cow".
Looks to have all the makings of a very good game manager, but waiting for him to show that he's the man and I haven't seen that yet. Not worried that I haven't seen it, but at some point this season I'd like to see him find that confidence and take that next step.
Not really that great compared to several other true freshman QBs that are starting....
Is Cade mobile? I see he has some decent rushing stats. BTW this question is no knock on Sefo. Too early to really know how good he will be.
I think he's doing okay. We all need to remember that the o-line in front of him sucks. There were times yesterday where he had guys on him literally after a three-step drop.
He doesn't have that "it" factor yet. Probably because he has to think too much. I'd like to see more improvisation. I'm not seeing where he got a reputation as a good runner, but you don't have to be to be a good QB. Takes a bad sack from time to time. Real close to a couple of pick 6's last night.
Sefo is a true frosh behind a miserable O line but some talent at the skill positions. Give him time and he'll be fine. It'd be nice to have more of a playmaker there, but he's okay.
If we had an average PAC 12 o line, we'd be 4-3 right now IMO and a bowl game would be feasible. Why is this program cursed with ****ty o lines???
My biggest complaint is that he seems to throw the ball too low. Most seem to be at the receivers knees. I don't know if he's worried about int's but to hit the receiver where he can maximize yards,he needs to get the ball higher. All this is said with the caveat that our oline is incredibly horrible and beyond repair. We have nobody with a mean attitude and most seem to tolerate getting beat like the proverbial red headed stepchild. God how I miss lineman like Gurode and Naeole. Is it really that hard to find mean linemen?
