Thoughts on QB

Post by laxwyo » Wed May 08, 2019 7:33 am

Nobody has thoughts on Chambers being named starter? Was it a foregone conclusion? I figured he’d be the man.

He was named starter last year as well. Bohl doesn't seem to take away starting spots due to injuries. That said, he clearly is the QB that is likely to keep the chains moving and fits this offense really well.

Additionally, TVW seems to be a great competitor as well because all indications are that he is sticking with the program. In this 'me first' world, not many QBs at other programs have been doing that when a freshman was named the starter.

I feel good about the QB situation. Chambers has to be the guy and Vanderwaal is a capable backup that will probably get a lot of PT in his career with the way Chambers runs and inevitable injuries that follow.

Did anyone hear anything about Levi Williams?? He was here for spring football, correct?

Yes. Davis Potter had a nice write up:

I believe he was, but between Chambers and Vanderwaal's experience there's almost zero chance that he doesn't redshirt this year. I'm pretty sure Bohl likes to shirt his QBs whenever possible. If Vanderwaal had been able to win games last year I'm sure we wouldn't have seen Chambers until this season.

I chuckle whenever I read stuff like this.

A freshman can redshirt and still play in 4 games. Chambers was going to play some (perhaps in decided games) regardless as to how well TVW performed. I actually expect that we may see Williams on the field a bit this upcoming season.

As fans we tend to just see plays as "up the middle", "play action", "sweep", etc -- I do actually think the blocking schemes are pretty complicated. Maybe that's the problem.

That is the problem. We don't have Nebraska type lineman to run these Osborne style blocking schemes. Strong, quick, and athletic lineman are hard to come by. I appreciate the uniqueness of a power offense in college football but I figured by this point we would have the type of lineman to run it.
I'm good for 3!

I agree with this. TVW is gonna still be a pretty important piece of this team. I hope sean Never gets injured again but its football so it will probably happen. I am really happy that TVW has stuck it out and understands he is one play away from playing. His attitude he has shown during last season and the off-season has made him one of my favorite players. I also think hhas more talent than we saw in the first stretch of games he played last year.

From the pictures I've seen with Levi standing next to Chambers... He needs a redshirt. He is skinny, needs to eat and lift.

That's one thing I appreciate about Chambers. He's build well and is rugged.

If he doesn't get significant playing time this season TVW will be gone. No reason for him to wait around forever if he can transfer and find PT. He's wasn't good but he's no Nick Smith, at least not yet. I have to think that's why Bohl went after Williams.

Bohl has been quoted often as wanting to sign a QB with every recruiting class.

2015 - Josh Allen
2016 - Chandler Garrett, Isaac Leppke
2017 - Tyler Vander Waal
2018 - Sean Chambers
2019 - Levi Williams

I can all but guarantee we'll sign another this year

Agree except the redshirt rule changes. I think they'd like to get any player 4 games experience during redshirt year when/if possible. If one of the 2qbs was down you hope #3 gets a bit of time?


I really like having 2 qb's. What they really need is a QB coach. I know they could bring one in but I don't think they will.

Vigen is the QB coach. Has been since they were at NDSU. While most may not like him calling the offense, I think his biggest contribution is as the QB coach. He was the QB coach of 2 guys currently starting in the NFL, not very many people that can claim that...hell, he might be the only one.
