    Next year's QB?

    Who is in the pipeline to start at QB next year?

    Almost certainly Harris. I guess Homlberg is the dark horse but I'd guess he plays backup one more year.

    It will be interesting to see if Duke pursues any of the grad-student-transfer options.

    Cut's history at Duke suggests not. But Cut has never had to replace a QB of Jones' stature, not at Duke.

    Crossed my mind too. Who is on your radar as far as grad transfer QBs?

    Also, I'd also like to see what QH can do with a steady gig. He does a few things really well....things you can't coach like speed and long ball...while his erratic throws on short and medium throws seems coachable. I've no idea what kind of decision maker he is.

    I've wondered the same thing. This is a unique situation which could make for some unique opportunities.

    Harris impressed me with his play against Baylor once he actually practiced with the starters. Cut's MO is usually to put the QB heir apparent into a limited play package rather than having 2 seniors. You could make a persuasive argument for free agent seniors in several other positions before QB.

    I am comfortable with Harris, he showed poise and great leadership. He has stepped in to difficult circumstances and performed admirably,

    If someone can beat him out, well — go for it. But I doubt we will see a first-time starter against Alabama.

    Offensive tackle and wide receiver immediately come to mind.

    Agree 100% with this. Harris did a fine job for the most part, and unless we get a great transfer, I don't see anyone better to start.

    My money is on Harris with someone in the Connette package.

    Agreed, though I wish that "package" would get lost in the mail....

    Go out there and play this spring and see who's the best quarterback on the team. The contenders:

    Code:
    NO	Name	POS	HT	WT	Class	Hometown
    18	Quentin Harris	QB	6' 1"	195 lbs	JR	Wilton, CT
    12	Gunnar Holmberg	QB	6' 3"	190 lbs	FR	Wake Forest, NC
    15	Chris Katrenick	QB	6' 3"	215 lbs	FR	Algonquin, IL
    Sage Grouse

    With a heavy dose of my personal favorite: the bubble screen!

    Bryant or Hurts , please lure of these guys. I think Cut could help those guys become ready for the next level.

    I'm with you, but I hope the "package" is more accurately called the Jones Package. Q running more, the Package Guy passing more.
