    ... was that the McElwain/Nuss plan all along?

    He already said Franks is the starter. LDR didn't see a single snap against Michigan when we couldn't move the ball an inch. And you think he's going to start?

        I'm fine with LDR, I just don't want to see Zaire take another snap.

        No. There isn't. Not unless Franks and Zaire both break their legs in the next four days.

          ACTUALLY he said the plan was to put LDR in the last two minutes. But because the game was so far out of hand they decided not to.

          So no – it is not a ridiculous assertion.

            I dont think we will see LDR...

            He didnt see the field for the UM game for a reason; he sucks...although one could argue he is better than Zaire but thats not saying much

            By the way, I don't think there is anyway that he starts. And this is obviously a trolling thread.

            But that being said – nothing surprises me with the staff and I wouldn't find it absolutely crazy that they would pull such a stunt.

            I'd rather see Zaire start every game then ever see LDR play another down. Franks should start the remainder of the season baring injury I don't care who comes in in mop up duty or after the game gets out of hand as long as it's not Del Taco.

              Dont be surprised to see LDR if we lose to Tennessee.

              Frank starts. But I suspect as soon as he makes a turnover he'll get pulled and ldr will be in. does it really matter who's in? it hasn't in any nusschump offense for the last 6 years.

                Dude Del Taco can throw a HELL of a lot more accurately than Zimbabwe.

                I'm not really of the run first mentality at QB. Both Treon and Tyler Murphy were better QBs at that.

                    I am not sure why you think this is trolling. I will admit to trying to spur this board back to a bit of post hurricane discussion, but then again I live in the one part of the entire southeast to miss this storm.

                    I can imagine a plan to start Franks against N. Colorado, let him be ineffective and have Del Rio save the day and hoping that the fan base would demand Del Rio against UTn. As you say nothing should be shocking with this staff.

                      Send Nuss in. Let him be QB with those plays ... unless he's done CC plays.

                          So when Del Rio is sent out to start this week ... it will be with him carrying terms of surrender.
