Is this kid that great? Even though the Red Faders have lost two QBs, why does KK need this guy? There are tons of QBs and WRs that want to play at Tech.

Tech's needs are on the other side of the ball.

"great" probably not, but I was surprised to see Leidner beat him out at Minny. He was the better of the two IMO but Leidner had better foot skills so by game 3 they made switch.

TT could do better. Never hurts to have comp. This guy has started 14 games at least so he can keep the spot warm until KK finds his guy.

Fixed it. He got the starting spot midway last yr, but has appeared in parts of 18 games or so

You old dinosaur. It's not about the team's needs. That's so 1990's! This is the new millennium and millennials think it's all about them.

Nelson said to be a blue-chip QB that MN regrets losing. Potential there it seems. Needs a new system though.
