    What exactly did you expect Cam Thomas, true freshman, to do? .
    Not look like he had never been on a football field before. His throwing ability is abysmal at this point.

    I expected the kid to struggle...not outright suck.

    What did you think about him getting positive yardage on first and second down and then being replaced by George? Nothing good happens on the pass and they settle for a FG That was telegraphed by the OC. I understand what you are saying. He threw a couple of INT and on a rollout couldn't even bounce a throw into a receiver. At least Juice could hit a receiver in the feet. I would like to see both George and especially Cam get time on the field without getting replaced mid-series as some trick of the OC.

    That both of these guys can't throw.

    Isn't this OC that you're bagging on supposed to be some amazing Smith hire when he got the job?

    Jeez.

    That doesn't answer my question at all. Good job.

    Cam and George can't throw the ball effectively.

    McGee should have left Cam in.

    It doesn't change the evaluation of Cam in any way.

    Your question was pointless.

    FYI, your comments on the McGee hire:

    Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer
    Illinois is hiring Louisville's Garrick McGee as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, a source told ESPN. McGee held the same title at Louisville the past two seasons. Although the move is lateral in title, it gives McGee the chance to operate his own offense under a defensive-minded head coach. New Illini coach Lovie Smith helped recruit McGee to Arizona State as a quarterback when Smith was an ASU assistant in the early 1990s. McGee has experience both in the league and in the state after serving as Northwestern's offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach from 2006-07. It will be interesting to see how Bobby Petrino replaces McGee at such a late date, but Petrino's own ability to to call and operate the offense is a big plus.

    Now, this is a fantastic hire. Great recruiter. Also what Rittenberg doesn't say is that McGee eventually transferred and graduated from Oklahoma. Stoops/OK tried to lure McGee away last season and couldn't do it. Lovie just got a job done that Stoops couldn't. I guess Lovie has been out of the college game too long. Whoops!

    Thank you. I know being honest is really difficult for you.

    I know what my comments were. He's a top recruiter, who was highly sought and has brought in some good, young talent. I'm hearing he is terrific with the QB's in practice. Petrino called the plays in UL. We will see how he does with a more mature OL next season and likely one of the two incoming freshman QB starting.

    Was McGee scouting Quincy Patterson or Ben Bryant?

    Why would they want Bryant? They offered Patterson. Coran Taylor committed. He has a very strong and accurate arm. The other 2018 dual threat they have committed (Rivers) is having an outstanding year.

    I can tell you that in 10 years of varsity officiating in Illinois, Patterson and Bryant are two of the best QBs I've seen play. Perhaps landing one of those two might have helped you get a guy like Deondre Hall, who instead is going to a directional school instead of the flagship school.

    Perhaps you should have worked a Peoria High game and watched Coran Taylor.

    Bryant is going to Cincinnati, right? My brother taught him in jr high and said he's a great kid.
