    Uh... Matt Baldwin isn't some spare. He was a bad *** at a high school that churns out rock star QBs.

    Context matters. 14-17 against 2'a and 3's is completely different than 14-17 against the 1's.

    But Brock is saying Haener has been the better QB all Spring, not just in that practice.

    From what he is "hearing".

    Are they splitting first team reps or has Eason consistently been with the ones all spring? If it's the latter then Haener looking good against 2's and 3's doesn't mean much of anything.

    Aren't scrimmages usually set up like 1s vs. 2s and 3s and 2s and 3s vs. 1s?

    It's that way during the fall, but I think spring you usually get more 1's against 1's because depth charts aren't solidified.

    Productive HS career earns the first round talent label now lol. Let's see if he can win this job before we go there. Will be two P5 programs that he was beat out at.

    Lots of people who do this for a living have said Eason is a first round talent. There aren't too many guys that have his size and arm strength. The only thing holding him back is himself. I guess you're the cool guy for trashing him though lol. Do you, homeboy.

    Eason may have first round talent but he's gotta prove it, I know he's had some interruptions, at some point you gotta put it all together if you are indeed that guy.

    There’s a difference between coach speak that tells you nothing, as was just pointed out above in regards to Justin Fields, and CFB writers covering a team’s practice and analyzing what they see.

    ^Yeah, I agree there...Context is different, though I don't put a large amount of weight into some of these things in the Spring.

    No hate. Just been years of hype with nothing to back it up at this point. My argument is more that first round talent is beyond a HS kid being 6'5 with a big arm. I'm interested in seeing what he puts on film this year 4 years removed from HS.

    Now I'm trashing him because I'm not sure if he's a first round talent. :lol: :smh:

    To put things in perspective Eason isn't a similar situation or Kyler Murray. Both were4 years post high School going into the season, both played the freshman year (although Jake Eason played a lot more and played pretty well) both transferred and spent a year behind established starter. A year ago, who would have thought that Kyler Murray would be a first-round pick yet alone the likely first overall pick?

    Am I predicting Jake Eason is going to be the top pick in the draft? Of course not but the talent and potential is there.

    Also, just stop being a hater man:lol:

    This Notre Dame spring game is pretty wild. 47-45 at the end of the third quarter. The spring games are always tough for me to assess, I'm not sure if their offense is amazing or if their defense is just horrendous.

    Kyler is a dual threat super athlete (although undersized) in a high power offense with the top playcaller in college football.

    Eason is a statue with a strong arm in an underperforming offense with a 2nd year playcaller who did a pretty meh job last season.

    I surfed the UW boards a little and it seems there’s even people calling for the 3rd string guy (Jake Colson?) to get more reps with a zone read scheme because the traditional offense has been so underwhelming this spring.

    I was about to respond, but just had to move on when he started comparing this to Kyler :lol:.

    Anyways, Tathan really might be at UNLV by the fall.
