Any player ever: "I feel confident in my own abilities such that I have a personal inclination whereby I may be the best at my position right now." Media/everyone in the world: "He/she is calling everyone out and said they're better than everyone ever; what an arrogant person!"

It is fairly important to get the context right to avoid making a polarizing, arrogant sounding sound bite. Harris said "I really do feel like I have the best arm in college football, and I feel like I have the best team in college football." This was said in emphasizing that you have to believe in yourself, regardless of detractors, in order to play the most important position on the field, and be a leader. Tom Herman the first year HC at lowly Houston who finished 13-1, 7th in the AP poll says a quiet QB is a problem: "At that position, leading by example is not enough. You’ve got to be vocal, you’ve got to be heard.” He won an NC as OSU OC by dismantling ALA's defense. Greg Ward, his QB is 19-3 and threw for 2,827 yards, with 17 touchdowns, six interception and 67 percent completions. That went with 1,114 rushing yards and 21 rushing touchdowns. Tom Herman's HUNH, spread the field offense, with QB in the shotgun, make the defense defend the inside power run and the run-pass option and don't give them time to rest or adjust. Hallmarks of the top teams since 2013 with OSU/ORE, and Clem/ALA a preview of the future. ______________________________________________________________________ So what do the experts say about Harris's arm talent? They concur. Miles: Jamarcus Russell hand talent, and a strong, fast runner. Whitfield: 2014: reminds me of Jameis, not a QB in 2014 class with more arm talent. Whitfield 2015: One of the biggest NFL arms in CFB. Malzahn: Class Guy, NFL arm, why we started recruiting him in 2012 (Soph), could throw from hash to hash on a rope (@160 lbs). Cameron: Bionic Arm, makes all the throws. Bradshaw: a Cannon, lack of growth due run-oriented scheme. Booger McFarland: Harris is a rare talent. Les needs to get Harris a QB coach, open the offense, quit playing in a phone booth, turn Harris and the receivers loose. Harris is now 220 and has his QB coach and a stable of receivers, a better O-line, defensive guru, and a head coach in bad need of an offensive makeover ala Clemson, ALA, TCU, Houston, Baylor, OSU. Craig as the receivers/QB coach is some much needed change agent. He is not the game planning OC like a Kiffin, a Chad Morris, or a Tom Herman? Miles and Cam are 14-10 in SEC last 3 yrs, 58%, Cam's NFL avg. Can the BoBo twins change their style? McFarland bets not even if you held a gun to their head.

Until you do something tangible on the field, stick a sock in it. Learn the offense, learn how to throw and then you can yap.

Loving the confidence. Not so shy and timid like he was his first few years, finally getting that swag. We definitely have the best or tied for best team this year.

Now all of that needs to translate on the field. Talk is just that, talk.

There is no denying Harris' arm talent. It's the touch and pace that need work.

He does have a sick arm. Just needs to control it a little better.
