    When you are at MD you are playing with a huge athletic OL, top running backs and super fast receivers. And you are playing against inferior defenses every week. At SC almost the same thing but kid can’t handle pressure. Throwing up prayers all the time and afraid to run is not a good sign. With him at QB the side line chalk will get a lot of use

    Sam Darnold will soon join Ryan Leaf, Vince Young and Matt Leinart on the top NFL QB bust list.

    Playing at Glendora is not the same as playing at Mater Dei…The last two losses have nothing to do with Jt and more to do with horrible at calling and the lack of a running game.

    SC is big time college football. Money bigger than the NFL. With this atmosphere you can’t baby sit a kid hoping he turns into The Hulk. Kid had 3 pretty soft games and he looked awful, even with that silly mustache. Time to experiment. Look what Saban did when his super star QB started to not measure up. He did not wait around, ” You are outta here kid.” And he did it in the middle of the biggest of games. Big time football son.

    Matt Fink is not Sam Darnold!!!
    From T. Peterson: You sure? They thought Browne was better initially.

    You guys play a soft schedule. I would give you guys credit if you would win by 25 plus points with the soft schedule but you didn’t. Be ready for league

    It’s time to make a move and replace JT. I think it’s just a little to much too soon, for the young lad.

    Fink is not the answer. If he was he would have won the job out of camp.
    From T. Peterson: Well, not necessarily. Max Browne won the job out of camp two years ago and Sam Darnold was the better quarterback. Helton made the change and the team improved. So there’s that.

    Time to give Glendora’s Fink a start. SC needs a QB that is strong and can run a little. That is why they got him right?

    Robinson is not alluding to something, he’s coming right out and saying we should get off our spectator butts and do something real and important…you know, like hitting a ball with a bat and running around bases.

    In the world according to Jackie, we should all stop watching baseball and do something real, like actually PLAY baseball. Who knows, maybe we’ll get so good at it that we’ll make the majors, where we won’t become a legend, because all the fans took Jackie’s advice and are out doing something else.
