Are we allowed to point out inaccuracies in the book, or will that get us sent to Bolivia?

The term for ND is Subway Alumni.

a troubling amount of red and gray Brian is wearing...
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed.||
Even if Malzahn's reasons for initially blocking the transfer were dubious at best, it's good to see that he is doing the right thing now by allowing it.
So here is a gif of Gus, just 'cuz.

this was a dong punch of a newsbreak. What the f are we, Ohio State now?
Which one looks better? I'd say the first one. That one is badass.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||When will people get it??||
It's TOO EARLY!
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Curse of Borges||
This is admittedly a really good point, but is a kid really doomed to fail just because Borges recruited him? Seems a little memeish and distanced from reality. Speight is only a RS freshman at this point and could potentially have four years of being tutored by Harbaugh rather than Borges.
How is this a knock against Speight? Lots of QBs train with a private QB coach to get better and get more exposure. And that happens in high school, college, and the NFL. Also, lots of parents who see potential in their kid pay for private lessons or put together highlight reels. I feel like your assessment of Speight is a little unfair.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||This is about as well-reasoned as anything||
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Hey, I'm 6'2"||
Sure, I think it's tall enough, but I'm not an NFL scout, and apparently people knock on 6'2" guys because it's not "prototypical" height (which is what, 6'4"? bfd). Of those four QBs you mentioned, only really two are franchise QBs in the NFL. If Malzone is the next Brees, then I say hell yeah. But what if Speight or Gentry is the next Luck?
|19 weeks 2 days ago||I just figure people haven't||
I just figure people haven't had their coffee yet.
Look, we're not talking about who the actual starter is... at least, I'm not. Obviously, in that sense, it's way too early to know. Okay, yeah, I'll grant that we haven't seen much of Malzone or Speight beyond high school highlight tape, but to be fair, we haven't seen much of Peppers beyond high school highlight tape either (he wasn't exactly Mr. Impact last season), and everyone seems to think he'll start for sure based on that.
Really, I was hoping the discussion would go this way naturally, but I guess I'll just come out and say it: Which would you rather have as the starter: a 6'2" accurate guy who has the potential to be the next Drew Brees or Tom Brady, or a 6'6" beast who looks like Harbaugh could make him into the next Andrew Luck?
I'm really torn on it. I want to give the nod to Speight since he's had the benefit of redshirting and getting through a year of physical training. I don't feel too great about throwing Malzone to the wolves as true freshman, either. But if Malzone is really Mr Accurate and he's ready to play then hell fuck yeah I want that guy as the starter.
Obviously whoever gets chosen will be OK because of Harbaugh. No one is questioning that. (At least, again, I'm not.) If anything strikes me as pointless, it's the "Whoever Harbaugh" and the "Too Early for My Brain to Even Think about this" responses. Those things don't contribute anything to the discussion other than to hurr hurr mgosnark. Excuse me for wanting to talk about football and there being barely anything to talk about.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||David Brandon was the OC all along||
The offenses were "handcuffed by David Brandon"? Now there's a hot take
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Hi Magnus!||
Thanks for the comment.
I think it's at least based on some information. After all, even Brian had mentioned it on a blog post recently:
|19 weeks 2 days ago||sigh||
Hoping for some actual football discussion on Monday, but I see it's going to be one of "those" threads instead. Carry on
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Too early?||
What's wrong with at least broaching the subject?
I realize the season is a long ways away, and we will probably add 10 more QBs before then. But I mean hypothetically, if it came down to Malzone or Speight, who would you choose? I think that's not a too OT topic for the Mgoboard.
