Sell. He's no guarantee to get significant playing time (enough to win that award). At this time last year we already knew Spence would be starting for us at LB. I think Phillips will keep Armstrong off the field and Telemaque is a stud. I'll give the edge to Jacobbi McDaniel or 'Maque himself for this award.

I actually like Daryll Clark but people are definitely talking about him. The best QB that literally NO ONE (other than WVU homers) is talking about is Jarrett Brown.

Maybe no one is talking about Jarrett Brown is because he hasnt done anything. Daryll Clark led a team to a an 11-2 record and a Rose Bowl.

Sean Spence was behind Sharpton and McCarthy last year. Only reason he was able to start was because of McCarthy's injury in the UNC game. Spence was used in certain packages before then.

Ray Ray is literally in the exact same situation as Spence at this point last year. Just a different position.

Exactly why he's not the best QB no one talks about.

Your logic is flawed though. Wins do not equal good QB play.

Spence was 1st team in the spring while McCarthy was out. Armstrong isn't even here for the spring, and the guys who he's likely behind are not injured.

I don't see how that's "the exact same situation".

Armstrong has been here for the spring. He might not officially be allowed per NCAA rules but he has been in Miami and meeting with the time for awhile.

And if you wanna get technical, Ray Ray is in a better situation. McCarthy is a hell of a LB that everyone knew was gonna be the starter for the season and would have been had he not gotten injured. Randy Phillips is serviceable and only has the job based on seniority, not talent. People expect Randy Phillips to be replaced at some point.

No one though Sean Spence was gonna get a chance to replace Colin McCarthy at this time last year.

I don't see how Armstrong is in a better situation. Spence came in early and learned the defense. His competition at OLB was McCarthy and Sharpton. I'm pretty sure he would've started even if McCarthy was healthy all year.

Phillips opened the season as a starter for us the past 2 years. He doesn't just have the job because he's a Senior...he leads the DBs in weight room numbers, he knows the defense and the coaches always praise him as someone who's a leader. Armstrong will be able to contribute but I don't think he'll get to start barring injury. I expect solid play from Phillips and Maque and neither will get pulled unless otherwise.

Spence was 1st team at this time last year. Everyone was talking about how advanced he was for a Fr. I knew he was gonna start.

Sniper: A TD-INT ratio like that usually means good QB play. That has nothing to do with the irrelevant, illogical and tiresome argument of a QB's W-L record and how far they "lead" their team. Like Matt Leinart and Vince Young led USC and Texas to the NC while Jay Cutler didn't even make a bowl (I think). Or how about Drew Brees nearly breaking the yardage record this year for the NFC South bottom dwelling Saints.

Phillips opened the season as a starter for us the past 2 years. He doesn't just have the job because he's a Senior...he leads the DBs in weight room numbers, he knows the defense and the coaches always praise him as someone who's a leader. Armstrong will be able to contribute but I don't think he'll get to start barring injury. I expect solid play from Phillips and Maque and neither will get pulled unless otherwise.

Spence was 1st team at this time last year. Everyone was talking about how advanced he was for a Fr. I knew he was gonna start.

Sniper: A TD-INT ratio like that usually means good QB play. That has nothing to do with the irrelevant, illogical and tiresome argument of a QB's W-L record and how far they "lead" their team. Like Matt Leinart and Vince Young led USC and Texas to the NC while Jay Cutler didn't even make a bowl (I think). Or how about Drew Brees nearly breaking the yardage record this year for the NFC South bottom dwelling Saints.
Spence's competition last year was McCarthy. Spence wasn't gonna get moved to the other side to battle Sharpton and he wasn't passing McCarthy if not for the injury. Plus remember, Arthur got rave review in the spring as well.

Phillips does have the job because he's a SR.

Phillips would not have started for us last year. 1st of all, he was suspended the 1st game and then came back againt UF still didn't start. He played 2nd team against UF. JoJo and Reddick where the starters. After that he got hurt. He probably would have started couple games just because JoJo was so bad but he was not the clear cut starter you are making him out to be. He was severly outplayed in fall practice by JoJo. Have you forgotten how much hype was around JoJo coming into last year?

So what is in Ray Ray's way is a 6th year SR who is coming off a year long injury, struggles with coverages as evidenced by his move from CB and has yet to really play any meaningful time at S for us. And then Vaughn Telemaque who we all expect to be a stud, but he has yet to take a college snap. JoJo had the same hype of Maque going into last year.

Your telling me you don't see meaningful time in that rotation for a physical freak like Ray Ray with the potential to overtake one of those guys if things do go as planned?

And considering Randy Phillips history with the team, sucking at CB, being suspended, injuries. You don't think something will happen to give Ray Ray a shot?

Randy Phillips is the defense version of JJ. He's just not reliable. (and less talented)

Spence wouldn't have been moved to the other side. McCarthy would and Sharpton would find his *** on the bench. I don't remember Arthur getting rave reviews at all. All I remember was the talk of how he wasn't ready for the next step and lacked the fundamentals from playing weaker competition. You even said it yourself multiple times.

Who else is supposed to be starting over Phillips now? Plus if we didn't want him we would've told him not to come back like Reddick.

My bad on this. I forgot JoJo starting, and the hype train.

What is in Ray Ray's way is safety who has a good chance of being a reliable player that does well in coverage. The staff is counting on Phillips this year to be a leader and a veteran presence and I think he'll step up to the plate. His coverage struggles stemmed from his inability to play press man from the CB position....something he's never gonna have to do again.

I see potential for Ray Ray to get playing time, but I don't think he will overtake anyone for a starting job unless an injury happens or he really shows top instincts and intangibles. The physical ability isn't what matters...Spence was able to start and play well because he's a smart player. Marcus Robinson and Forston were both inconsistent and out of position at times. That's the difference between starter and contributor as a true freshman.
