I'm not here to defend or criticize anyone, but if you watched the game tonight and came away with "they're about equal," you've got a bias toward Ramsey that's really clouding your judgement.

Or you don’t make snap judgments based on one game.

If Penix was so far ahead of him, his numbers for the year would show it.  They don’t.

Someone on Hoosier Sports Nation said they heard a rumor Penix might have a broken collarbone, anyone heard anything similar? I’m really hoping not and haven’t seen that anywhere but I’m worried.

They probably got it from here. Someone here said it during the game.  :)

Exactly. Theirs numbers are about even and Penix has overall played easier competition.

Its the same argument week after week. Nothing changes with the opponent. Its besn said by mant that if you have 2 QBs, then you do not have 1. Its bedn proven by our Hoisiers that fir this season we have and need 2. I am happy we have them both available!

When both are healthy, why does the coaching staff prefer Penix over Ramsey??? They see these guys play and practice every day so you must think our coaching staff is absolutely incompetent and should probably go talk to Glass for the job. Allen has said it time and time again that Penix is a special talent and this is his team when healthy...I just don’t see why you don’t see it like the rest of us and the coaching staff do. Just go back and rewatch that game and watch the releases on both QBs throws and how quick the ball is in the receivers hands once Penix throws compared to Ramsey. Ramsey’s arm strength isn’t even close. Our receivers weren’t having to wait/come back to the ball like they do with Ramsey. I love Ramsey and the toughness he brings and the fact that he can manage the offense when Penix goes out, but to keep saying that he’s better is a little ridiculous. This will be the last post from me about the QB situation because it’s so old and tired and not worth trying to make someone comprehend what the rest of us (and the coaches) do.

The "if you have two quarterbacks then you have none" quote refers to when you rotate the two quarterbacks in throughout the game. Doing that makes it hard for them to get into a rhythm, hence why people say that. It doesn't apply to our situation because we have a starter and we have a backup, and they don't rotate in and out when both are healthy.

How could Penix break his collarbone, when his last play was a hand off to Stevie Scott? If he broke his collarbone, he would have been carted off or at least helped off. That kind of thing puts a guy down on the field on pain alone.

I have broken both collar bones and i think it would be hard to run another play after breaking one but you don’t need to be carted off the field. Adrenaline could have kept you going. I broke my first one playing hide and seek but still got home safe lol

Funchess of the Colts broke his the first game against the Chargers.  I saw him run to the sideline after making a catch...

Spurrier tried it at Florida, it was disaster rotating them.

The difference in the two is not on paper.   

Agreed. The zip on Penix’s throw makes the defense have to play that much quicker and allows the receivers to catch the ball in stride and make get more YAC. It also stretches the field more for our running game and underneath routes.  His grasp on the offense is very promising for a RS Freshman.

Just hope the guy can figure out how to stay in the game.
