Pyne is a very good QB.
I think he could be the one to get squeezed out though.
Book in 2020. Clark then Pyne in 2021 while Buchner runs the scout team. Buchner in 2022 and beyond.
Pyne may be good enough to transfer and be successful somewhere else.

Pyne is a solid prospect but heís no Trevor Lawrence. I doubt Jurkovec felt squeezed by a borderline 4* who hasnít even been in a college practice.

Youíre not supposed to do that here when thereís a Ďreal dealí four star quarterback on the roster or in the pipeline.
Kids just got something about him that I like. Kind of like Favre did, just looks to enjoy playing the game, true competitor. And like I said, his arm will surprise a few.

This is even more moronic. Even the slight mishap with Golson, Rees was already warming up on the sideline. Donít act like Golson was ever the clear cut favorite every game.
Really? Really? McDaniel and his glamour shot took over playing time from anybody that was a running back on that team that year. His random three yards really led the charge that year. Let me ask you this? No, wait..Iíll come back to my question.
Let me get this straight...Schmidt was the only guy who could understand a defense that was towards the bottom every year Van Gorder was here. A guy that your boy BK kept on his staff and wouldnít fire. A defense I wrote about during the Fiesta bowl bashing where our corners played 22 yards off the line and our line got blown up on every play. Maybe it wasnít that the other guys couldnít understand his defense, but rather it was that Van Gorder was a poor talent evaluator and play-caller. Maybe thatís why Schmidt played.
Iíll get to my question but I already know my answer. What benefit did it do for anyone when McDaniel got those three yards. When Finke dropped those passes against Georgia for a pick-6? Joe Schmidt constantly missing tackles, too weak to shed blocks, or even get into position. Or how many wins did Rees and company give us to stick our chests out about? Because playing all these ďveteran moxiesĒ as you see as given us a ton of 8-5 records. Maybe Bryant is in the NFL right now with a strong career because he successfully ran great at ND given the opportunities instead of dead in Florida somewhere. Maybe ND has some more wins earlier in BKís years because he played the more talented players?
But Iím done ranting, I need to go catch ride to softball. Whereís John Goodman when you need him.

I still dont get why people hate on Finke. He was a reliable WR. It is almost like you hate guys like Wes Welker and Julian Edelman. Yes I am comparing them because none of them are burners. Finke did at the college level what those two did/do at the NFL level. No, I do not think Finke could do anything at the NFL level. But it's not an issue to have a good hands receiver who plays very smart. Finke earned his spot and I was rarely disappointed in him...

Them playing Clarke against New Mexico made it clear who the staff really sees as the successor to Book. Phil may turn out or he may be a bust, but I know Iíve never seen a great qb who couldnít throw a spiral. Heís got an Andrew Hendrix awkwardness to him but not nearly as bad.

Iím high on Buchner but I wonít be shocked if Clarke takes the reigns once Book leaves. ND is in a good spot at qb moving forward.

I was saying the same thing about Book when he first arrived at ND. He just wins. Nothing fancy about his game.

That article said he's 6-2 and 185? That's not bad size. That means he could potentially be 6-2 200 or 205. That's a step up physically.

You got to think that Phil probably saw this too in practice. Phil might had felt he was one mistake away from being 3rd string. You never know.....

I still prefer a transfer with experience for Ď21.

Clark is very good and supposedly passed Phil at practice. He has a strong arm and is accurate in long passes but his touch on short plays needs work.
He is a good runner. I have not heard how he compared to Phil but he is suppose to be a tough guy type.
Pyne is a good player also.
Tyler Buchner, best QB since Brady Quinn per Irish Sports Daily, plus others. Watch his videos, there a lot to watch and I think you will enjoy it.

Phil might have been much better if he didn`t have a QB coach.
