You have no favorite boards.
Let's assume that Tommy keeps developing, cuts down on his turnovers and ND keeps winning. Tommy would be our qb for the next two years.
You have to admit that this leads to an interesting scenario whereby Kelly won't be able to have his kind of qb until three seasons from now !
Even if we are winnig, it would have to drive Kelly crazy not being able to utilize this part of his offense for years. He could put one of the mobile qb's in from time to time in a game, but that is not the same as having a mobile qb in all the time. He will no doubt have open competition during the spring, but how do you bench a successful starter and start an inexperienced though mobile qb ?
How would you handle this situation ? ( or, how should Kelly handle this situation should it occur ) ?

IMO Golsen right now is probably too green. He pobably needs to watch from the sidelines a little bit longer. Hendix on the other hand plays only under three scenarios. Injury, ND flounders or ND flourishes and he picks up mop up duty. I only like one of those scenarios.
Good post, good commentary. Let's be thankful that we have depth in the position and enjoy the next chapter as it unfolds.
At some point; however, I'd like to see a positive transition start to emerge. We're starting to get all of his pieces together and we're all going to be screaming for the high-octane offense soon.
My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!
At some level I got to believe CW is talking to DC
