    My 2 cents. I think they will all get an equal opportunity to compete. I trust the coaching staff in determining who the starting QB will be. If the backups can't handle that decision then they probably need to move on.

    ETA: Air Force jumps out to an early 6 point lead over Baylor in frigid Ft Worth where it's 10 degrees. That's warm. It's -7 here.

    I’m glad Daniels is coming back. I really wish Roy has stayed another year…

    Agree. With him, Smith, and Wingo, healthy, one could take a breather and there would have been no drop off in the middle.

    Of course, but...
    For that to happen he would need a legitimate shot to do so. I'm not sure he will get that. Neither he or Nuss and that in my opinion is the problem. Will it be a true competition or has the decision already been made???

    I've never understood this and I don't think I ever will. This whole "sitting behind someone" is hogwash to me. You get better on the field not with a clipboard in your hand.

    Yep, exactly this.

    Daniels returning is huge. You cannot overstate the importance of having experience at the QB position. Just look at the first years versus the second years of all the guys that have come through here. Mauck, Russell, Mettenberger, Burrow. They all had decent to good first seasons and then exploded in year 2. No way this is anything but a positive for LSU, even if it means losing Nuss, which I figured would happen at some point, anyway. This makes him a Heisman candidate and LSU a title contender in 2023. I might even say it makes LSU the favorite to win the west.

    So are they gonna spend off season teaching JD how to throw past 15yds? Asking for friend.

    DCs have figured JD out. Spy the QB run and bring safetys up to mid field. That is a big reason prod began dropping off later in what is still an over performing season TBF.
