    It's a good provision for stability through a coaching change. I've generally like Montez- but never more than 2016 in Eugene...

    Just gotta bring back the whole offensive staff for continuity purposes. Make sure Montez is extremely comfortable.

    Yea, he was quite hopeful that they would put him in a position to win by the time the Cal game rolled around.

    senior qb is almost always a better thing than the alternative (and has to be attractive to prospective coaching candidates....you got a guy until you get the lie of the land, feet wet, etc.). 2016 Sefo reference here somewhere....too.

    Chev is a must keep, he might be able to help get Montez drafted in the 1st round if they work on the little things

    Whiners. I guarantee you Hawk beats Montana State if Barney hadn't burned Klatt's redshirt against Baylor.

    And that he never, ever, never is required to read a defense.

    I hope he proves me wrong, but it has nothing to do with talent that is holding Montez back.

    good one.....my alternative time line is Colt Brennan keeps it in his pants whilst in Boulder and doesn't lead the nation in passing TD....at Hawaii. most points in a season, most TD's in NCAA etc....23-3 as a JR and SR starter.

    I think we'll be amazed at how much better he gets if the OL protection gets better along with the route designs & play calling improving. We know the holes in his game, but those aren't the types of holes that usually hurt a college QB & offense like we've been seeing. Hell, Tee Martin and Tim Tebow were some of the most efficient college passers in the nation and Montez doesn't have the limitations they did. There are a ton of less talented examples, too.

    Paxton Lynch was a very successful college QB. So was Johnny Football - and he wasn’t even on campus unless it was game day.

    I like to think of the possibility that Seau almost committed to Mac....Chad Brown, Alfred Williams, Ted Johnson, Kanavis McGhee, and Seau would have been insane!

    Cody redshirted that season. You seem to have forgotten Bernard "funk in the trunk" Jackson.

    Bernard Jackson was one of the best Qb's ever at CU.

    Montez was the first guy out on the field helping up teammates and checking on guys when they were hurt. First guy congratulating his teammates when they made a play. There was nothing wrong with his leadership this year.

    That depends on how you define leadership, no? Those things you mention are easy to do. When the **** hits the fan, what happened?

    If we set aside our Black/Gold glasses for a minute there's a viable argument that SM might be well served by "senior grad transferring" to any P5, G5, or FCS program with a QB need and an above average OL. Joe Flacco would not be in the NFL if he hadn't transferred from Penn State to Delaware. I'm not sure that CU's OL is going to be vastly better next year, and there are questions at RB. I'm happy he's coming back but there's as much risk for him
    in doing so than in Grad Transferring.

    He was generally on his ass the last half of the season to be honest.

    That's what I was going to respond to your last post:
    "Well, he would have been the one helping others up, if he weren't pancaked flat onto the field most plays."
