Way to go Tyler, go F yourself Hawk!
Sorry for touching your spleen and ruining your 2010 season, Tyler.
Congrats Tyler. Hold your head up!
kinda had a bad game / over and under threw at least 2 td passes... should have ran on a couple of plays for first downs, but am happy for him and always liked TH... but on the other hand I am glad to see an upgrade coming in his position!! enjoy the old 9to5 rut Tyler !
You should have said "run" instead of "ran" but otherwise a nice post if you don't like Hansen. Keep up the good work!
Hawk benched his starter to put Hansen in as a true frosh. Hawk and crew may not have coached him up properly, or used him properly, but I never bought the 'Hawk screwed Hansen' meme. Hansen never proved himself (even this year) more effective than Cody. That may not be saying much, but its true. I think Cody with this year's team would have outperformed Hansen.
I'm really looking forward to Wood and Dillon. I'm praying that one of them will be a real, honest to god talent at QB. We haven't had that at CU in a long time.
I didn't get to watch the game but watched the highlight reel. Looked like Tyler had a pretty decent game. Hit a lot of the receivers in stride and looked good rolling out. Again, didn't get to see the entire footage, but it looked like one of his best games of the season in the highlights.
They probably didn't show the throws to wide open receivers that were about 5 - 10 yard misses on the high lite reel, did they?
Totally disagree in so many ways. Hansen was way more effective than Cody over most of his career - passing, rushing, ypa, passing efficiency. Hansen was thrown into playing when he was not ready as a frosh and then was always taken out in the 2 minute drills. IMO, CH was not a QB at the BCS level or Div 1 level. The receiving corps last year was better than this year.
I will agree that CU has not had a top notch QB over the last 6 years and that has hurt. Time will tell if that has changed.
Considering that neither Cody nor Tyler really progressed as QBs over their careers at CU, could it be that Hawkins screwed up both of them?
Glad to see the Zonies keeping the grammar in line! Tyler always gave his best, but he lacked a lot of fire that he may have inherited with four years in the Embo system. Having said that, the seniors can be very proud they got over a hump Hawkins never enabled them to get over.
It seemed to me that Tyler's "football IQ" just wasn't all that great. Especially given his dad's background. I also felt like he got a case of happy feet when under duress. Finally, he seemed, to me, to get rid of the ball too quickly when he could have been more patient. Those three factors led to a less than stellar success rate. But the kid played with heart and gave it his all.
Hawk jerked him around for sure, but he had like 28 starts and came off the bench in a handful of others. That's way more live action than most QBs see and he never really got any better. I'm glad he helped end the road losing streak, but he had a huge part in keeping it alive in the first place so I'm not ready to say he went out a winner.
It would be interesting to see if he was a RS SR if he could beat out Wood/Dillon next year. Hawkins really should have brought in a Juco to backup Cody in case something happened to him. That was another poor recruiting aspect by Hawkins. Bleh!
Curious. What was Cody's winning percentage as a starer vs Tyler's?
I've always believed that Tyler's QB skills were superior to Cody's but Cody had a bigger heart and delivered more in clutch situations. I'b be interested to see who's winning percentage was higher.
Cody's has to be higher given our record this year. Obviously Tyler and Cody have very different skill sets, but I'm not sure having one or the other in makes a big difference.
Don't even get me started on grammar around here, but that was more about whatshisface being a little bitch and needing some comeuppance.
As for Tyler, I thought they took his feet from under him this year for the most part. When he did run around more, like in the Arizona game, he was pretty effective. And he's a better passer than Tebow. :smile2:
