    Nobody KNOWS that
    I can think of one person who may have an idea of where AJ's mind is heading...and they have scholarships to use if they believe they need an additional QB

    Terrible is a very strong word that probably overstates the situation, but admittedly we cannot run our base offense with our current back-up, so it's a concern area.

    Not sure Waters ends up at 'Bama, and frankly I imagine he signs elsewhere. Still, though, I could see the reasoning for our interest. No one really knows about McCarron, I suppose -- no he shouldn't leave early, but you never really know what will go through someone's head -- and there has been some mention of Ely being a potential transfer candidate.

    Again, doubt it happens, but if the staff believes he legitimately has the talent then I can see the appeal. Whoever mentioned it above is probably right, though, in that McLeod would probably greyshirt if that came to pass (which is something he may or may not be willing to do).

    uh...you usually have to use some scholarships for other position players too; linemen, defensive players, rb's etc...

    just cant give out schollys to every QB who shows interest.

    AJ said today that he's staying another year.

    I disagree. WE haven't seen enough of them to make that decision. There's a reason why CNS recuited them.

    You missed my point, which is, if you have a lot of players at one position (say wide receiver) and a player like Julio Jones wants to sign as a JC transfer...do you sign him? For that once in a decade player, yes I do. This QB may or may not be that type of talent but if he were, my argment is, then yes, I can see signing him. That's all...not trying to be smarter than anyone else.

    BTW, very glad to see AJ saying he will be back next year. RTR!!!

    I apologize, my response may have seemed a little smirky (rereading it, it seemed like it to me), and I didnt intend it that way at all...

    I was estatic to see McCarron returning too, and It would seem if we take another JUCO QB, there would be transfers forthcoming for the QB position, especially with McCarron coming back for another season...

    its the only position where one guy takes the majority of the playing time, and most dont want to wait in a crowd for the chance.

    That makes it sound like he was leaning towards us until AJ said he's coming back. Any thoughts?

    I still cringed at the idea of him making a 6th scholarship QB on the roster next year with AJ leaving. 7 scholly QBs is even scarier to think about.

    AJ, Ely, Alec Morris, Sims, and the 2 in this class.
