    Default Projected WT Quarterback?

    Any thoughts?

    I can't imagine them going with Houghtaling again after his dismal performance last year.

    My guess is Mitch Hood, transfer from Mississippi State gets the nod.

    I agree. I posted the same a few days ago. Actually, he played Cali juco and spent a RS year at Missy State.

    I'd agree with Hood, but I think Lemon-Rodriguez will be in the mix. He was apparently injured in the spring and wasnt at full potential. Bonneau is gone, so only Houghtaling comes back from last years qbs. If they start him, I may lose my mind

    At 6’4 240 and athletic, I was told Lemon-Rodriguez will be on the field somewhere.

    He was referring to Skyler Bonneau, who'd been on the roster for 2 years. Or were you just punning Sonny Bono?

    It appears that WT has some quality & depth at the QB position this fall. With the addition of the Gerber kid who transferred from Tech, our Buffs should light up the scoreboard this coming season.

    Did Bonneau take Cher with him when departed WT?

    Why, you have provided the Buff fans a wonderful opportunity to post some meaningful quips. So take a bow for your insight!

    The last interview I saw with Hughes he stated that the competition between Nick Gerber, Justin Houghtaling, and Mitch Hood was still wide open; no one QB distanced himself from the others.. He sounded like it would be fall camp before the QB is chosen.

    I wonder. Gerber got the Dustin Vaughn QB award for spring practice.

    The other QB, Davin I think looked just as good as houghtaling and Hood

    I say that because I wonder why he is never really mentioned. An article in the AGN didn't mention him last week either

    It has been over 20 years since Cher's Sonny Bono died tragically in a skiing accident at Lake Tahoe ski area. RIP.

    Now that’s funny. Correct if I’m wrong but aren’t y’all talking about the same two QBs who stunk it up last year.

    If you continue to do the same thing and expect different results.....

    Better hope someone else beats them out

    I think all WT fans are hoping to have a great new QB comparable to the ones we had in the Carthel era. However, remember that Houghtaling has beaten out Brinkley, Arbuckle, Skyler, and last year's can't miss guy Hood. Hood's arm was going to solve all our problems. I couldn't wait for it to happen.

    Now that we have a new OC, Gerber may be the guy but the fact is Hughes likes Houghtaling. Remember his comment that he didn't need Justin to win games for him? How many Pueblo QBs are memorable? Hughes wants to win with defense and ball control, like they did in Pueblo.

    Houghtaling is a smart guy, and that's a good thing. He impressed me at times last year. Do I want him to start? Preferably not, but I won't be surprised. With an improved offense and 3 hopefully healthy backs he might be better.

    By the way, whatever happened to Lemon-Rodriguez?

    Wish I knew, that's the Davin I was referring to above. He's in camp on getting reps but nobody ever talks about him...coaches, local media etc
