He is a winner, plain and simple.

I don't believe Coach Riley will use the pure West Coast offense. He has commented and the virtue of multiple set pass- run options. The offense will be similar to what we have seen the last three years.

Riley has said quite often he will adapt what his system with what the players can do. I know he recruited Stanton but he was a cali kid in pac 12 country.

Tommy is this best QB we have regardless of the system. Coach Riley will coach him up.

1 1/2 years starting is a lot of experience. If the new coach plays to this teams strength it will be hard not to. If he's looking for a pocket passer he may be out. Remember when he sits in the pocket he can't remember which way his receivers are going.

No, because Riley will install the offense he used at Oregon State which will primarily be a West Coast System. It will be Stanton at QB next year. You heard it first right here.

Actually, I've heard that hundreds of times from other sources already...

Average thrower at best. Johnny Stanton will be the guy.

Stanton has the best arm of the lot. It was shown this year that the difference between 9-4 and 12-1 or 13-0 was the fact that we couldn't consistently pass when it really counted. If we have a quality QB that can make those throws we might have been in the Playoff this year and Riley knows it.

Stanton was recruited by Riley, plus I believe he can complete check down passes to the running back, a problem we've had the last 2 years.

Great option QB, but those days are over. Too many bad throws (lucky for the USC drops) ; likely it's Stanton.

Mike Riley is a huge Stanton fan. And let's face it . Every time Armstrong drops back to pass , we have to hold our breath and hope he throws it to the right team.

Johnny Stanton will win the job because he is a more complete QB

Unless he can consistently make the throws in the short and medium range, he will sit. He needs to be consistent. Throwing a 65 yard strike is nice, but it also helps to make the throws to just move the chains.

Tommy is inconsistent

I hope he isn't because if he is the best we have for 2015, then you can expect 3-4 losses next year as well. Sub par throwing, can't read routes and not a pocket passer.

two years of 50% passing... I don't think we need a third.

The guy is wildly inconsistent. Very indecisive. Locks in on one receiver. We need a better passer. My money is on Stanton, but I think Darlington is a possibility along with Bush. I also wonder if a junior college kid is a possibility.

Hasn't mastered progressions, patience in the pocket and most importantly, self confidence. Thought he might have what it takes but he does not!!

It's at home and I think we will be understanding our new system and coaches by then.

Purdue is deeper into the first season of a new staff. And it is at home where the crowd is more of a factor.

Later in the season. The mini game is #1 and we'll have some kinks to work out. BUT I think we win both. With good coaching we'll finally put Mini in our rear view mirror.

I thought we did really well with the defensive and offensive line, plus the most in-state recruits since 98!

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.
