No that wasn't his fault, but he got away with a couple others that could have been picked.

Do we really KNOW that for sure though? Don't get me wrong, we're obviously in a better position with him. I think we'd probably still be fine with a number of quarterbacks back there. All this "we'd be awful if it wasn't for Rudock" stems from one comment from Harbaugh, after a game in which his starting QB was being questioned for another shaky game. I think this TEAM is very good, which helps them overcome some deficiencies at the QB position, and IMO that would probably be the case with Morris or Speight too.

There have been quite a few grad transfers listed here that have been playing quite a bit better than Rudock. It's obviously a process, no doubt, but others have acclimated quite well.

Stafford hasn't really improved a whole lot either. He kind of is who he is. My main point was just that I, along with many others, were berated this week for pointing out many of the things that Brian has been pointing out in his UFR posts. From what I've seen, none of us are attacking him, and calling for the back up. Just pointing out the fact that he's struggled in some area's that he wasn't expected to.
|9 hours 49 min ago||That's exactly what I'm||
That's exactly what I'm hoping for as well, and pretty much agree with everything you said. I'm not expecting anything more than he was at Iowa, just hoping he can play at that same level for some of our big games (mainly OSU/MSU obv). To this point, he hasn't, and that's all a lot of us are pointing out.
|11 hours 16 min ago||I wasn't talking about him||
I wasn't talking about him compared to Shane. I was referring to Rudock this year compared to our expectations/Iowa Rudock. There haven't been very many people (that I've seen at least) suggesting that we have a better option. Just that Rudock needs to improve in some areas if we want to meet our new (and improved) expectations for this team as a whole.

I'm waiting for the "stop criticizing Rudock" crowd. Although I'm sure not much will be said now, because Brian is doing the criticizing.

Yea I mentioned that in one of the precious UFR posts. Even if someone with some extensive knowledge aside from Brian, wanted to do some historical games/players, that would be really cool.

At this point, we control our own destiny. We don't need MSU and OSU to falter (aside from when they play us, of course).

I agree we probably would have the same record, but I don't think very many us were expecting to look as good as we have doing it.
|1 day 5 hours ago||I absolutely agree with this.||
I absolutely agree with this. I think many of the people that are nitpicking are doing so with new expectations in mind (which is AWESOME! I can't remember the last time I really thought we looked like a ten win team after 5 games). This is definitely the case for me. It's not that we are looking for things to complain about, just noticing things that may come back to bite us in a couple games if they don't improve. I don't think there's anything wrong with that and I really don't understand why people get so bent out of shape about it.
