  1. Having two capable QBs is a good problem.
    Bryant obviously feels he can win the position. Would not make sense transferring to be QB2. Unless it was more about the environment and education. 😂 I just think his chances of being QB1 were better at a few other schools. I like the fact he’s in blue and white and not afraid of the battle ahead. 

  2. I’m a little surprised the Bryant kid didn’t transfer to North. They need a solid QB and he passes North driving down 41.  I don’t see Fisher getting knocked from QB1. Especially if Fisher is “all-in” this offseason. 
    Is Bryant capable of playing other positions or is he set on competing for QB1? Does Hurly implement a 2- QB system. Bryant looked like a solid running QB in limited time last season.

    This is right.

    I once talked to Mike Neu about the Colts finding Danny Pinter.  They came by, as they often do, and asked about anybody Neu thought they should look at.  Pinter had just made the move to IOL that season.  They looked at his tape and saw a lineman with unusually good downfield blocking.

    They asked Neu if that was typical for him, Neu said it was.  And the Colts took a Ball State lineman in the 5th round.

    NFL scouts rarely miss on finding kids that should be drafted or at minimum invited to camp with chance to earn a contract. All FCS, G5, and P5 schools host pro days leading up to the draft.


    IMO regardless of where Brady ends up I’m sure NFL talent scouts know him and will follow his progress over the next few seasons. 

  4. NFL draft scouts and NFL team reps visit colleges daily during the fall season. FCS, G5, and P5 teams have reps at practices watching players. They know where possible draftees are and they follow them religiously throughout the year.

    Right but getting coached up by Nick Saban is a little different than going to New Mexico and playing for the lobos.


    you can go sit for 2 years with saban and become an incredible player….or you can go play right away for the lobos and depend on the ole “if you’re good they’ll find ya” 

    I’m assuming you never played college sports?  You can be incredible at any college athletic program.

    It’s more of a fantasy football debate. I play some leagues that are devy and use college players.  

    the debate is circled around what transfers should do.


    do you transfer to a lower level school in hopes of an easier path to playing time….where ideally as a top prospect you would show out and perform above expectations…..or do you go to another P5 school where you get better facilities, coaches, and competition that improves the development of the player….but that comes at the cost of playing time for the majority of players. 

    it’s not always non P5 schools either….sometimes it’s just the powerhouses…like players who play for Georgia, Bama, Ohio State, Clemson….they might choose to leave in hopes of more opportunities at another P5 school. 

    maybe debate isn’t the right word for expressing the thought, but it is often a discussion had about players who enter the transfer portal

    Not sure. I think a player has to find the right fit with coaching. Great coaches and great position coaches from D3 to FBS.  I think players get a pretty good idea how things are going to shake out and what their chances are of being QB1.  

    Ultimately, most probably want a chance to play asap regardless of level. NFL scouts go to a lot of college practices from FCS, G5 and obviously P5.  If you can play they will notice.

  7. I know USI has offered and I’m thinking UE has offered. Can’t imagine any kid giving up Friday night lights but it wouldn’t shock me in todays era of softness. Lots of good QBs from 6th grade up at Memorial. The 7th grade QB is the best I’ve seen at Memorial for that age.  If the Bryant kid comes in focused he could win the spot. IMO. His competition will be busy playing baseball.

    Where is Mason going to school next season and is he planning on playing football?  That kid can sling the rock and his size alone should put him on the radar for college programs.  Bowen is a beast also.  I love to see the small schools get some love in this Mr. Football award.  Those guys could be stars at any level in HS.


    I think he has a couple NAIA opportunities but maybe more will come with this recognition.

    I think it will be Bowen. 

    Here are some stats:

    1. 220/336 (65.6% completion) - 2,911 yards, 29 TDs, 11 INTs. State runner-up, state champ Jr/ Sr year

    2. 247/386 (64% completion) - 3,868 yards, 51 TDs, 7 INTs. State champ, State Runner-up Jr/Sr year

    If Michael Lindauer (stat line #2) didn't win Mr. Football, Wunderlich (#1) probably won't either. 

    And if it wasn't for some Karlaftis guy currently running around KC, Lindauer would have been 2 time state champ.   

    Not a bad final 3 that season 

    1 Kiser 

    2 Bell 

    3 Lindauer 

    also in the mix Romeir Elliot.

    Memorial will probably do what memorial does. Turn it on when it matters most. That coaching staff has the ability like no other to get everything clicking come tournament time. 

    While Memorial has certainly been a really good tournament team, I think sometimes people overlook the Tigers regular season successes. Only 12 regular season loses dating back to 2016 season.  Averaging less than 2 losses per regular season over last 7 years. But I do agree about the coaches. They find a way to elevate the kids to a different mode come tournament time. 

  11. I don’t think any Memorial fan I associate with thinks they walk through 3A.  GS is perfect example.  I think several GS fans thought they would win 3 straight sectional titles with Allen. Just speaks to the competition level in 3A.  A team/program of GS caliber only winning 1 since 2016 is proof enough it’s not easy down here.

    Why do we still do "All City"?  Not putting it down in any way....I just have never had anyone who could really explain it to me.  What's the point, I mean your conference is your conference?  Wasn't Castle the only team excluded for years....that just seems weird to me.  They might be a great reason, I just haven't heard it.

    I think it’s more to do with the tradition of the Downtown QB Club. It’s also voted on by players only.  I think.

    SIAC absolutely crushes the PAC

    I think it would be fair to say SIAC could have a deeper team, like numbers 3’s and 4’s on the depth chart.   I’ve watched enough of both conferences to say the 1’s & 2’s would be some damn good matchups.  Not sure all 4 teams on depth chart wouldn’t make for damn good matchups.  Last time I checked it’s 11 vs 11.  Can’t see SIAC being much better.

    Oh, my bad. Let me rephrase. I'd love to see the trophy anyone actually cares about from the week 4 and 9 wins.

    I care. Sometimes when a team is struggling to win important post season games, like Memorial, it’s nice to know Tiger fans can celebrate the Cake-eater trophy in the off-season.

    Congrats to both teams but as someone who still has Enlow PTSD was I mistaken in thinking there wasn’t a literal ocean of people in the Enlow stands like year’s past.

    I, perhaps mistakenly, recall those stands as being full to the brim during the various whoopings my beloved Trojans were bestowed there.

    I can recall some recent Memorial regional and semi state games where it was standing room only. Disappointing crowd for the Tigers.
