So, he waited until Brown was gone to decide that he had run and shoot personnel. Not really a ringing endorsement on his throwing ability.

Success in football is heavily dictated by the QB. If he would have had good RBs, heavy linemen, and a good throwing QB then he would have switched sooner.

They had already decided on the run and shoot prior to spring ball and Brown leaving... if you want the facts

Does it really matter who starts at Oregon State? Both Dru and Spencer will play this year. I think both will play in the first six games and a decision will be made then who starts the final six games. With our schedule we should be 5-1 or 6-0 after six games.

So, Brown decided to leave then after they chose to switch offenses and he knew he was going to get beat out by the better thrower.

True, but he saw the writing on the wall, and took summer classes so he could transfer and not have to sit a year. He was never going to be the starter last year at Hawaii. He was a stop-gap there just like Corndog was here, just not nearly as talented...
Dude you are flat wrong. Period. You’ve been corrected already. Go do some homework and come back when you are either smarter or more truthful. Then we can have a good discussion about QB play..... maybe

you've got an excuse for everything don't you?

none of that is entirely true. Brown transferred... 7 guys transferred from that team, they likely got beat out in the summer too... right?

the backup QB (behind Brown) McDonald, did not win the starting job until the first game... it had nothing to do with "summer". Let's see.... he could not beat out Brown one season, but the next season he's the stud... OMG. Alert the Hawaii coach!!!
https://www.washingtonpost.com/spor...daaa5b2a57f_story.html?utm_term=.b3630df8e0a9

Brown was the team captain and starter, he transferred for personal and family reasons. The Hawaii coach had to change the entire offense in the off-season for the 2nd string QB.

He transferred in the summer because he was trying to compete coursework to GRADUATE, as a Junior. (with 2 years left).

2017 (Junior): Recipient of the Coach Tom Kaulukukui Offensive Captain Award…named one of four team captains prior to the season…started all 12 games at quarterback…one of four players on offense to start every game of the season...finished the year with 2,785 yards passing with 18 touchdowns and eight interceptions…averaged 232.1 yards per game, while completing 61.7 percent of his passes…ranked third in the Mountain West in passing yards per game and in total offense (232.7 ypg)

Brown’s return to the mainland was brought about in part because of his desire to be a little closer to family as he wraps up his football career in college.

“This decision has nothing to do with football,” Brown told the Star Advertiser. “My family comes before this game.”
Alas.... some truth

I have heard Spencer will be the starter. The only hesitation from coaches is when he tries too hard to improvise and breaks off the play trying to extend it. He gets over anxious to make the big play instead of the safe play. It will take a lot of learning and experience but with his legs and cannon of an arm it’ll just take some time for him to develop.

I honestly think we will use Drew with packages like JW. Have a RS Sr in the red zone that you can trust, has less nerves and has been there before. Spencer will get trigger and feet happy for a few months so the safe bet is Drew in the red zone. It’ll open up the RPO stuff, QB runs, slants, the roll out quick throw to the 6’8” Jelani etc. Drew has a good dependable arm. I just think Spencer opens the field up more on those 40+ ya bombs
Heard he will be the starter from??Please enlighten us

McDonald was a freshman when he didn’t win the starting job at Hawaii in 2017. AMAZING

In reference to your first paragraph:
Gundy-what are you trying to do?
Spencer-win!
Gundy-we play not to lose, never to win.

History is littered with highly recruited QBs that turned out to be busts.
History is littered with first-round QBs that turned out to be busts.
History is littered with lightly recruited QBs that turned out to be superstars.

Anyone definitively stating which QB on our roster should start and why just might be a moron.

What do statistics tell us about highly rated prospects vs lower rated prospects? History is littered with all types of outliers.

It was a question posed to the board that required opinions. If someone has a strong opinion and gives their reason why, it doesn’t make them a possible moron. Not realizing this seems to have more moronic potential.

Who’s gonna start? (The OPs question) or Who should start? (Answers to which I commented) That’s two different questions. One answer requires only a guess and is answerable by almost anyone. One answer requires a significant understanding of the players’ grasp and ability to execute the offense and is reasonably answerable by maybe two people.

Nope, two questions same requirements. No matter which question you want to make it, it will always be speculation/opinion on the responders part.
