Thankfully the Case McCoy era is officially over. In fact, it ended better than I'd hoped... Case was the clear reason why our offense sucked, and he was outplayed by Tyrone Swoopes.

I don't see Swopes as the answer at QB ; but that question is yet to be determined. Judging talent at the college level is far different than those in high school. There have been shining examples of kids being misjudged for the QB position. R G III, Andrew Luck,,Johnny Manzeil, Trevor Knight and the list goes on.Perhaps the problem lies with those doing the recruiting(Rival & Others)and the coaches doing the judging. I think we need to focus on kids that have the will and potential to become better. We need to look for kids with desire and talent and not for another Vince Young or Colt McCoy. Rare birds are once in LIFETIME.

Im excited to see what Charlie Strong can do with Swopes due to what I saw with Bridgewater. Now whether he goes with him or another qb is a different story but his main focus right now should be recruiting and not passing up recruits like Jameis and Johnny, both who wanted to attend UT.

It's 2015 , and I have now a timeline. Well ,Jerrod herd will be our q.b. And we now have Kai Locksley and a too young "grey shirt" that I wont mention . Not for lack of talent though. This job will be open to competition and encouraged in the"strong " system . They are still in distress over the q.b situation and it is proven because they are in a street brawl with other D-1 schools for juco q.b talent . NOT GOOD ! We will in the end have Heard under center and if Swoopes gets the work in and rounds the confidence corner we will be better for it. My take The eyes of TEXAS . Hookem !
