re: Danny Etling vs Arkansas (every throw)
That's not exactly true. I remember Dupree, Dural and others getting heat for drops when Harris was QB. We even ran a WR out of town because of it. Harris was given a lot of heat, but also a lot of latitude because he was considered a physically talented QB. The INT thrown directly to the Badger defender to end the game was the final straw for fans and coaches.

The overthrow of the tight end was one of the worst throws i’ve seen.


Worse than the one Mett threw into the turf that lost the Clemson game? That was to a receiver who was even closer, and Mett had his feet set, not rolling out like Etling.

Was it worse than the bomb Mett threw to the Ole Miss guy?

Was it worse than all the receiver screens Harris threw over 6'-3" Dupree's outstretched arms?

No, man, you've seen much worse. And you've seen them during games in which the QB could not reach 50% and threw interceptions.

Still not sure how that Arkansas DB missed that INT,


Really? Wow! Very obvious to me. That particular DB only has two hands. One of them never came close to touching the ball, and the other one barely touched it. But I guess that doesn't fit your narrative very well. You know, facts!

Just so you know, Mett was/is overrated, just better the we've had since Ryan P. Juice and OBJ made had to make spectacular catch after spectacular catch to save a lot of those ducks thrown.

The point was that he was in perfect position to do so

But you know that

several throws should have been picked off if arkansas wasn't so terrible


Okay, I think "several" implies at least three. Can you point them out, because I watched them all and I counted zero. The out to #11 should have been defensed, but no way the guy intercepts it. He could not get both hands in contact with the ball.

The only balls dropped were dropped by Dillon and Sullivan. Both blatant drops of beautifully thrown balls. One would have been a 38 yard TD.

Worse than Brandon Harris's game ending pick against Wisconsin last year?

1st half. I forgot, who won the Louisville game again? Who cost us the Wisconsin game?

I can't believe some of you are still allowed to post here.

People always try and skew shite to make their argument look more valid.

Etling is better and its not even close.

Harris played in 12 games in 2015. Danny Etling only played in 11 games last year. He had 2,123 yards. After 10 games this year he has 1806 yards. He will have to pass for 318 yards Saturday to surpass his 11 game total pass yard mark from last year. He had 11 td's in 11 games last year. He has 11 td's in 10 games this year. If your projected numbers even come to fruition, do you think that's any good at all? Over 13 games? Harris has played in 3 games this season.

And wtf does that have to do with comparing qb's stats while playing for lsu? You guys so omg he's so much better than Harris was at LSU. Then list Harris' stats for 3 total games while playing for another school. Makes sense.

See if you can follow this

Posters say
-He's not atrocious. Atrocious is what we had when Jennings and Harris were starters.
-Harris couldn't read defenses to save his life
-It really is ridiculous. I suppose all the Etling haters would rather have Brandon Harris back as the starter.

I list Harris stats' while he was at LSU. Which are nearly identical to Etling's stats last year and will be again this year. WTF does Harris' stats from 3 games at UNC have to do what he did at LSU? Please explain how this is logical. "Harris was awful at LSU!" Here are his stats from UNC that prove he was awful at LSU. How does that prove that argument whatsoever?

My point is if you think Harris's production was "atrocious" then you either also think Etling's was atrocious or you are bad at comparing numbers. They are statistically the same. Neither are good at the qb position.

re: Danny Etling vs Arkansas (every throw)
Its better than Harris. Thats the whole point of what you posted right? You are trying to say he = Harris. He Im not worried about "10 game" or "11 game" totals. Im looking at the full body of work. Compare Harris's 2015 season to Etling this year. Its not even a debate. Harris cannot hold Etling's jock strap.

Harris has played in 6 games this season. He is shite so he got pulled in those games or was used as a gimmick.

Harris's rating in the 4 games he had meaningfull snaps in.

Game 1 - 50.3
Game 2 - 167.1
Game 3 - 27.0
Game 4 - 18.3

Etling :

Game 1 : 166.8
Game 2 : 216.9
Game 3 : 84.5
Game 4 : 190.5
Game 5 : 152.9
Game 6 : 142.5
Game 7 : 140.0
Game 8 : 249.2
Game 9 : 82.7
Game 10 : 223.9

Honestly? Is there any comparison?

re: Danny Etling vs Arkansas (every throw)
You are one remedial fricking dude.

Did you EVER specify in your post with the stats that you were comparing JUST LSU stats? Im sorry. I must be blind or fail at reading comprehension as I don't see it... anywhere.

And identical? You need to go look up the definition, even a loosely interpreted one.

How does 13 tds 6 ints = 13 tds 3 ints?
How does 2165 yards = 2350 yards?
How does a 130.6 rating = 152.3
How does a completion percentage of 53.8 = 58.9
How does a ypa of 7.82 = 9.17

I guess you came up with a new math system. You need a nobel bro.

Danny Etling vs Arkansas (every throw


He will overthrow every pass down field and then throw a few wasteful screen passes.

Then he will connect 2 out rout passes to Chark

He will go 8/18

Jesus Christ you can't even follow a simple comparison. I listed 11 game totals because Etling played in 11 games total last year. I listed 10 game totals because, so far, Etling has played in 10 games this year. I didn't want you to think I was comparing Etling for 10 games vs Harris for 12 games.

For the second time, WHAT THE frick DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH HIS STATS WHILE HE WAS AT LSU?

Posters say "Harris was awful at LSU, Etling is much better." I list stats showing Harris was nearly identical statistically to Etling WHILE BOTH WERE AT LSU. I didn't list Etling's putrid stats that got him benched at Purdue did I? No I didn't, because that would be stupid when comparing the play of 2 qb's WHILE AT LSU.
