His stats last year were comparable to or better than Jake Browning who signed with Minnesota and they actually aren't that far from Justin Herbert a projected #1.

SM had a much weaker line and a rookie OC calling plays. He was instrumental in beating Nebraska in Lincoln last year and by all account he played very well over the first half of the season. I'll admit he wasn't as good the second half, but attribute that to Viska's injury, really poor line play and embarrassingly bad play calling and the absolute inability of our coaches to make any adjustments.

He's projected to be an NFL draft pick next year. He's got the size, the arm and the athleticism to play on Sundays. MT has raved about him.

I think we'll see a huge improvement with much better coaching, play calling, in-game adjustments, etc.

He's not on a "short leash" at all. The reality is this team will go as far as SM can take them. I happen to think that's going to turn out to be a good season. Already said this is the year we beat USC and we'll be bowling again. . .
