    This was interesting to paraphrase from a radio sports guy in a nutshell-
    You have all spring football and fall camp to choose your QB
    the ND coach got it wrong and finally switched to Book
    the Purdue coach got it wrong and finally switched to Balough (misspelled)

    I just thought that was an interesting comment on how good coaches can make wrong decisions sometimes.

    Purdue didn't have a choice as the other QB went down with injury. I think this shows what getting more reps with the first team can mean for a QB.

    Then, the coach admitted he was too conservative in the play calling. Those two key changes have transformed the Purdue offense into a dangerous team (ask the three top 25 teams they beat).

    They switched before the injury.

    QB play is more between the ears than any other position and it’s hard to simulate live fire in practice.

    For what it's worth, I believe Penix would have been named starter after PSU game had he not been injured, which to some people on board's chagrin, what not the coaches fault.

    Could he have played sooner, maybe, but not outlandish to think a FR takes over around game 6 in a season. Anyway, he still has his RS status and bet big $ he will be starter day 1 next season.

    Perhaps if he does not transfer.

    OK, troll much? He'll be a 4 year starter. Doubt he transfers.

    These young kids love yelling TROLL if it’s not what they want to hear. It’s what the youngsters do these days.

    Idiots predicting transfers based on nothing than senile “long time fans” drooling like they are on the inside of the program. Just keep your conspiracies to yourself.

    Joey Sindelar (sp) is their QB mentioned. I was wondering the other day if they would be able to red shirt him since Blough has it going great guns. Hopefully not because I recall him being pretty good, too.

    Nope. Already redshirted and he couldn't get the medical version.

    If DeBord "retires" or moves on, as many think will happen, Penix will have to possibly "learn" a new system that might not be to his liking. There isn't anything a lock for him to be a 4 year starter or even stick around. There could be plenty to be concerned about in the offseason. Nothing can be ruled out at this point. Nobody saw Tronti's departure coming, or even Dawkins for that matter.
