Idea for pod. In the spirit of Bill Simmons, how about a mailbag that covers NU questions from listeners.
I’ll start: On NU QB situation: Like many, you guys still seem to be bullish on HuJo. Is there a specific reason (other than the stars?). My concern with him is going back to high school, his teams weren’t always successful despite his talent. While he throws a nice ball against air and inferior competition, he doesn’t seem to have the “it” factor when he doesn’t have great talent around him.
Obviously, McCall shares a fair amount of blame here for not getting him ready after a redshirt year, but its not like he didn’t coach a bunch of successful QBs at NU (Thomson, Kafka, Simien, etc). I think a school like NU places a premium on “gamers” at the QB position. I didn’t see “it” from anyone at the QB position last year (aside from Marty in a couple of games), so I’m personally quite excited for Peyton Ramsey. Even TJ has shown actual competence against decent competition in spots. In brief, what specifically is behind your bullishness on Hunter—what am I missing?
