BK, QB Guru


Recommended Posts

So, as Hansen mentioned in his column on Sunday, BK has benched EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HIS STARTING QB'S at ND.

 

That is incredible. Everyone on this board in summer was going on that FINALLY BK got "his" QB and look out! But again, a QB under BK gets WORSE as the season goes on and he gets benched. This one fact speaks volume about where this program is at currently. It is also is indicative of BK blaming the player rather then his own inability to coach 'em up. There is no reason to believe that this will change. Expect QB carousel central to continue. Which means we will be mediocre unless our D has a year like 2012, somehow.

 

I love this Winbush kid currently committed to ND but man, I also can't help but think BK is gonna mess him up too...

Kelly is far from being a QB Guru at ND! Why has all of his QB's turn the ball over at an alarming rate? Does he even know how to teach fundamentals?

 

How would you teach a kid to hold the ball high and tight?

 

It seems easy to me, I'm sure the same to you. BK has been coaching forever. You'd think he knows how to coach that. I'm sure it has more to do with the player at this point. Seriously, how do you fumble a spike?

ND needs a RUNNING GAME to help take the pressure off the QB, otherwise your asking them to carry the entire load on offense. having a strong running game imo would solve a lot of the offensive problems particularly in the redzone.

That's a nice thought but Kelly only runs to set up the pass.

 

That is not going to ever change.

Forget next season then. Golson is not a leader.

 

Golson had a crap season, we can all agree on that. Golson singlehandedly lost the team games in a way we haven't seen since...last year with Tommy Rees, we can all agree on that. But explain this please "not a leader" thing to me. What is a "leader?" What has/hasn't Golson done to prove that he is a "leader?"

I think we also have to remember that Golson was hurt going into the usc game....just sayin....

I actually do still think Golson is the man moving forward. He needed to sit, and it actually needed to happen earlier, but he still has great potential moving forward. Now the leash needs to be tightened, and he needs to mature, but hopefully his performance in the bowl game is a positive step forward.

Not a fair question. Golson was the first QB that he recruited to run his offense and his first year was unbelievable. Or did you forget that year?

This year Golson was coached by a private coach while being suspended before reporting to ND.

The first half of the season he played very well, while being coached by Kelly. The int at the end of the FSU game seemed to affect him more than the rest of the players. He was pressured to make plays while being pressured by the opponent`s defense. He tried to force some balls also some of the balls were picked after bouncing off of the receivers hands.

Also, he was stripped in the backfield trying to avoid the sack that poured through the O line.

Most of the time he was trying to win the game but on a couple picks, he didn`t see a defender and threw it right to him.

The pressure mounted and so did the turn overs.

 

What fundamentals are you talking about.

Throwing with the fingers on the seam is not a fundamental. It is a choice.

You do know 2012 was the lowest scoring of Kelly's 5 seasons right?
