JT Daniels out for rest of season.

Post by cruiser » Sun Sep 01, 2019 2:26 pm

ACL and torn Meniscus, bad luck for Daniels,
will be interesting to see if Sears resurfaces
into the mix...

Jack Sears and company were watching the USC game with a USC group at a dinner house in San Clemente.
The minute JT goes down they get up and leave, interesting no?

Hmm, if the performance by Slovis continues the rest of the season and he doesn't get
injured, looks like JT will be the backup next season unless he transfers out - that's what
happens when you have an equally competitive and talented player waiting in the wings,
ironic that the injury to Matt McDonald gave Daniels the opportunity to take over as the MD
starter in his freshman year at MD...

it looks like USC has finally found their QB. Kedon Slovis may have saved Helton's job. Slovis has the ability to move in the pocket to avoid the rush. No more excuses about a weak offensive line. Joe Dirt will be the next guy to put his name in the transfer portal.

Well, like I said, it's only one game. The season is long, let's see what happens...
I'm thinking Slovis got a scholee because Kurt Warner was his QB coach at his
high school and vouched for him that he could do the job, carries a lot of weight
with college recruiters, apparently Slovis had a three star rating at best coming
out of high school. You just never know until you get on the field for real...

Slovis was not surrounded by talent in high school. His team finished 3 - 7 his senior year. He had to learn to compete as an underdog every game. His team started the season by losing their first five games. Players can do a lot of learning and developing when facing adversity every week.

Well, looks like JT is not getting his job back, does he stay at USC as the backup or transfer out?
I can't see him staying at USC now for next season, thoughts?
I'm sure there is a ton of schools that would want him for next season, would he
have to sit out another season or would he be eligible immediately?

So you're just saying? I thought there was some sort of announcement...

Next season is a looooong ways away...looked at all that's gone down @ SC just since this summer...

...apparently per reports, JT Daniels states he is staying at USC next season, will be interesting to see
who will be the apparent starter...

JT was the starter last year but Helton held a QB competition this summer anyway

Why wouldn't he do the same thing again?

He should, and he probably will. But barring something significant happening, how do you think Daniels would win that job back? The numbers the two put up aren't even close to being in the same universe as comparable.

i agree about having the QB competition again but as joefutbol said, I just can't see why
Slovis would not retain the job with everything being equal at the end of the competition?

If it's so pointless, then why would he?


But barring something significant happening,

I'm not saying it's likely, but significant happens all the time...it's a long time till next September

Because it's the fair thing to do and he deserves the opportunity. And because significant things happen sometimes.

Who would of thought, Slovis gets the PAC12 freshman offensive player of the year, no way in
hell - Daniels gets his job back, be interesting to see how it plays out next season, can't see
Daniels wanting a back up roll...

Btw - Jack Sears signed with San Diego State.

Interesting...didn't Sears leave because JT had the starting job locked up?

Sears pretty much left because he was last on the depth chart. I expect him to be the starter for
San Diego State for the next two seasons barring injury. Whose to say with the offense USC now
runs that Daniels would have put up the same numbers or more if he had not gotten injured, he was
throwing at a 70+% completion rate in the first half when he got hurt - in any case, just me; but
I just can't see him staying around next season,barring injury, of course to Slovis, will be interesting
to see what Daniels does, will be a ton of programs that want him if he decides to enter the transfer
portal...

On a side note, I see Jack Sears ended up at Boise State for the upcoming season,
good luck to him.
