loving these threads Bagga, keep doing them please.

Hogan is going to be a stud. Same with Winston. And same with Bridgewater.

For you guys talk down about Bridgewater, you have to remember that this is Louisville not a SEC team. Bridgewater is playing with no NFL talent whatsoever. You are talking about a 20 year old QB who started playing the position two years ago.
He's by far better then any other 20-year-old QB even Andrew Luck who came out at 22 years old.
Go and compare Bridgewaters skill set now with Andrew Lucks sophomore skill set at Stanford then talk.


He started playing quarterback two years ago? That's news to me considering the fact that he was a three year starter at quarterback for one of the best high school football programs in America. How do you come up with stuff like this?

Bridgewater doesn't even compare to Andrew Luck as a player or as a prospect. Luck dominated playing in one of the best football conferences in the country while Bridgewater literally plays nobodies on a week to week basis.

You would like to have your QB play in a good conference but it doesn't make or break that QB its not the end of the world.

There are plenty of QBs who came from poor conferences and have had a ton of success. Teddy cant control who they put on the schedule he can only go out there and play that's the only thing he can control.

Exactly and he's looked good against really poor competition and he's looked average against average competition in comparison to what other top guys are facing on a weekly basis. If you watch the Kentucky and Rutgers tape he doesn't really look that much better than the next tier of quarterbacks in this years draft and isn't even close to guys like Luck or Griffin III as a prospect.

Louisville switched him to WR then they moved him back to QB halfway through his freshman year.
Luck did NOT dominate anybody at 20 years old. It was his first year starting and Stanford was a run oriented offense.
You have to compare players during their same stages of development not a 22 year old vs a 20 year old.
Two more years of college development is a huge deal.
Now is Bridgwater going to be as good as Luck probably not but the potential is there that's what matters when your drafting players.

No they didn't, do you just make this stuff up bitty? Bridgewater had a passing attempt in Louisville's first three games before taking over as the starting quarterback in the fourth game and he's been their starting quarterback ever since. He's never played any other position other than quarterback.

Why would I make that up?
They were talking about it on ESPN.

He was the starter by his 4th game in his Freshman year and threw passes in the other three he also didn't catch a ball in any of those games. Even if they did occasionally split him out wide it really is a negligible difference.

Bridgewater was throwing passes as a receiver for the first three games of his freshman year? He's always been a quarterback Bitty. Laughing

Iirc, I was watching a game where they were talking about how Florida was recruiting TB as a WR and TB went to their youth camp as a WR and almost committed to Florida as a WR. (or something like that . . . ..it's hazy)

upset alert! As usual, just when you start to believe in Clemson they are about to wet the bed vs. Boston College. BC HC is a trip. A fiery character.

I figured some may want to talk about Bridgewater vs. Rutgers. TB is not having the best game. A couple of errand throws and an INT. Rutgers is gaining confidence.

Also WR Brandon Coleman should be playing in this game but he has been quiet.


Bridgewater looked awful last night at home against an average team. I know not everyone will be on their best but these are the games you want to really solidify yourself as a top QB. He failed to do that miserably. He's had a above average year.

EDIT: Oh yeah and

Nb4someonepostshisstatsliketheymeansomething

Fact is, he should be posting those stats b/c they're not playing anyone. He should be much better in those stats actually. If you've watched him, you'd see it.


Yesterday was the first time Teddy went up against a solid team all season and he looked average. I don't understand the hype around a guy that literally doesn't have to play against anyone.

after seeing him vrs cuse' last year I learned a lot about him
