First off, let me say that to the people who created and are in the facebook group F*** Kevan Smith, you are disappointments to the university. Kevan is a Panther, and while we may think he should not be starting, I don't believe we should be attacking him like that. If you want to blame someone for a major screw up, then point your fingers at the coaches. Kevan did what he was told and did it to the best best of his ability. I'll be the first to tell you that I'm hoping for a change, but I will never attack a fellow Panther the way you have.
Now with that out of the way, we can focus our attention on what should be discussed.
What should be done about our Qb situation? Well the biggest factor in all of this is Jason Pinkston. Without him it doesn't really matter because as we saw with the MSU game, every time Jason was out of the lineup, the Spartan's 4 man rush was able to create too much pressure. Even with our without Pinkston we still need to figure out what to do with the Qb's.
So Cavanaugh and Wannstedt, LISTEN UP!!!!!
You have 2 quarterbacks who can lead this team to a 9-3 record right now. They are both on your bench and have a combined 1 pass attempt between them. It doesn't matter who you put in there, Bostick and Williams can lead this team until Stull is back. We all know Pat Bostick is highly decorated, so I'll save you all of the awards and stats that Pat has accumulated over his career. We also know that for some screwed up reason, the coaches don't want him to play. So, if you don't want him to play, I don't want to waste everyone's time making my case of why he should play since you aren't listening. Instead, this is my plea for Mo Williams to be our quarterback.
Mo Williams was a starting qb in high school. He had a few offers to play qb in college, albeit not from big schools. The fact that he did have some offers should be an indication he can play at this level. He also gives you more opportunities to be creative with your running game. In the 3rd quarter you weren't even letting Kevan Smith lineup under center. If you can't trust him to do that, why not let Williams in there to run the option? Williams can run atleast a 4.4 40. He can also throw a bit too. Imagine Shady coming in motion on the wildcat offense with Williams under center. You hand it off a few times and the opponent believes you will keep doing that. But then, OOPS POW SURPRISE! Mo throws a pass, and now the defense has no idea what to expect.
To everyone on the Panthers football staff. If you want to win, you will start Mo Williams (since you won't play bostick at all).
Get Well Soon Billy Stull. We really need you.
