How good is Jaren Lewis?
« on: September 14, 2021, 11:31:54 AM »
I don’t know a thing about the guy besides looking up his HS Senior stats (throwing for 2,900 and running for 700 with 36 total TD’s). Will he ever see the field? Or is he destined to be the next Sammy Lamur? Does he look good in warmups?

I bet he wouldn’t turn the ball over at least….

He's so good the K-State SIDs called him Jared Lewis in their notes this week. They only misspell the names of the really good ones.

Looks mobile and loves the deep ball. We're going to run all day anyways. Might as well let this kid rip it on 3rd and 8 which is going to be a likely down and distance come Saturday.

On a scale from Jason Smargisso to Matt Miller i think he can be a Grant Gregory after a review of his sr season highlights on hudl

At this point, I would give him a shot. Why not? I am sorry but Will does not have it.

Unlikely. Will Howard had a QBR of 9.6 last game and showed he had only regressed from last year and we were playing against a cupcake squad.

I'm willing to take a risk here even if it's just run, run, 50-yard bomb. At this point, if you can take a snap and not turn the ball over, you're a good candidate to be our starting QB.

My brain is having a difficult time envisioning a QB worse than Will.

I think it is almost statistically impossible to be worse than Will and his QBR of 9.

I think our coaching staff is enamored with the physical stature of Will Howard.  In Kleinman's comments about him today he noted how much he weighed (240).  So the eff what?  Todd Reesing probably weighed 160.  Now, I can't be too harsh on them, because they did sign Deuce, who does not "look the part."

Yea I imagine they can’t run the ball with the QB the way they want with Jaren like they can Will.

It's entirely possible. He's had worse games without a doubt!

Worth noting that Dr. Daris was the leader of the "Will Howard isn't great" train. He's not a sunshine pumper, he's just a straight shooter.

A- source that Rubley's physical stature is one of the reasons he's been deemed not ready although he's more experienced in the program than Will was last year.

that seems like something that could improve without in-game reps!

Roids and gym reps.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

You're right, it can! Guessing if he was Teddy Bridgewater the coaches could overlook Rubley being so damn skinny.

After 1.5 quarters of playing time we know absolutely nothing more than prior to him stepping foot on the field.

Personally I’m glad he’s in the game. I’ll be a bit upset if Howard steps back in.
