He did as well as a QB could do with this receiving core.

He’s got an All Big 12 RB that had over 100 yards receiving tho
So did Howard.

Sky is legitimately a good QB. He’s clearly hampered by not being able to run and having a weak receiving corps.

NYCcat nailed this earlier, he ain’t great but damn is he way better than William Howard

Skylar was awesome today. He did many things that young Skylar or any of our current young QBs didn't do. With the exception of the pass he threw to the safety that he dropped, he stepped into every single pass. He was fantastic in going through his progressions. You all say he wasn't a threat to run but the Oklahoma linebackers sure in the hell thought so. Every time he stepped up in the pocket they reacted to him and it opened up passing windows. I'm not going to go back and watch but if that's your thing keep track of his passing percentage when he stepped up in the pocket. This is actually better for him if he can continue to find open players when he does this because he can run less.

His line was 29/41 320 yards 3TDs 0INTs, that's fantastic, by any standard. Anyone saying he was just okay is either unaware or disingenuous.

I think we beat Oklahoma State with him on the field.

We desperately need a transfer QB, the delta between Skylar and what we have is so big.    I would say Rattler and UT’s Thompson are a cut above what Sky can do and Bohanan and Purdy maybe slightly better but he’s at worst the 5th best QB in the league.  Our offense looks pretty darn good with even a league average QB.

I agree with all of this, but especially this. Once our defense put the clamps down on OSU we didn't have a chance with Howard and a slightly better chance with Lewis but it was still basically hapless trying to score, we'd have done more than enough to win. Also we wouldn't have given up that dumb ass fumble TD.

Purdy is way too turnover prone, I couldn't imagine how awful that offense would look without that threat of Hall. Bohannon's even remotely good passing games have only been against Texas Southern and KU, the other three games they have played his numbers have been very similar to Will Howard.

what in the world happened with doge. Isn't he like a 7th year senior?

(also not sure if TT beating WVU has me more worried about Tech or less worried about WVU. Probably a combo of both.)

Average.
Mediocre.
Serviceable at best.
Evidence Kli/Klein can’t develop QBs.
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.

We have the best QB in the league and Deuce Vaughn , we should easily go 6-3. 9 wins here we come!

A Messingham offense can be successful with Howard at the helm, but only if they're willing to run Will 12-15 times a game.

Doege has always been butt at WVU and they don't like him. He's legitimately has had 4 good games, unfortunately for us, two of them have been against K-State.

We're going to lose to tech and beat WVU. Both streaks have been fluky and both will end this year.

It's time to put Collin Klein on the chopping block.

He’s a great guy! Slightly above average college QB.

I like him a lot. he’s a below average starting college quarterback but an above average overall college quarterback. he’s also by far our best quarterback which isn’t great for us.
