Spring Practice 2021


Recommended Posts

Saw an article and it said exclusively on NBC streaming service peacock.

 

That’s pretty idiotic, but Peacock is free. They’re scummy and had the better content under Peacock+ but I doubt that covers live sports.

Pyne looks pretty good to me in this video.  I know a lot of people here don't like his height and supposed lack of arm strength, but winners just win.  Coan seems to have the inside track to the starting job, but in these videos it seems like he throws into traffic a lot.  Clearly it's just the second spring practice.  A lot of time to sort it out.  I'll be happy with whoever the staff thinks will give ND the best chance to win.  I hope that ND has plenty of opportunities to bring in the backup during games this year so he can get meaningful playing time, and not just to hand off the ball.

Unfortunately, Kelly does not seem to like giving backup QBs any significant snaps. Clemson had 4 players attempt double digit passes last year. Their punter had the same or more completions (two) and attempts (three) as either one of ND's back-up QBs. 

There is a reason that Jurkovec transferred. Given that ND's back-up QBs collectively attempted a total of six passes last year, I do not blame him.

If Coan starts, it appears unlikely that any other QB will get to throw many passes in game situations. Hopefully, that is not an issue in 2022. I guess that Kelly can always find another transfer QB with game experience to start that season.
