    However...we were having a record-breaking season in 2011 with two (mediocre) senior quarterbacks. There was not a reason for breaking in a sophomore QB when you are undefeated.

    The championship game was a train wreck; we all know that. It sucked to levels of sucking that I try not to think about.

    But after watching Mett play in '12, I don't think he'd have been very good (under Stud) in '11, so we went with the experience under center. For that matter, many here were bemoaning that Rivers left because he was a senior, leaving us with an inexperienced sophomore and freshman as our 1 and 2 QBs. Mett was the inexperienced sophomore in '11--so we went with the seniors (both of whom had glaring, but different deficiencies; put together, they almost made an average QB.)

    Please note: QB play, though shitty, was not the only thing that went wrong on 1/9/12. The offensive line got owned.

    That 2011 bama team returned 10 of their 11 on defense that year, from Phil Steele's book, they had 18 players listed in his SEC teams, LSU had a third, 6. The part wasn't how we could have lost on 1/9, its how did we win at bama?

    can fly and catch, my uncle watched him in high school and said he was the real deal, could play in the league if he worked at it.

    Quinn, I think he plays early. at 3rd receiver has to emerge, he has the tools.

    Either Quinn or Peterson. Those two behind Dural and Mal Dupre give us a very good 4 receiver set, I think. I'm more concerned about a QB's ability to consistently put the ball in their hands than I am about these guys catching it.

    They say Quinn's going to be a natural slot receiver. Great hands, good routes, smart decisions. Not a burner perhaps but he catches the friggin' ball and they say he's very quick off the snap. We have some faster young receivers, but most have to prove that they can get open and catch the ball. You don't get to be the all-time high school receiving leader without hands.
