    Well I just watched...

    Well I just watched Tommy Armstrong's senior highlights video for the first time a few moments ago and if you would like to dream of the future I suggest you take a look at it...




    There first few plays blew my mind, after a few minutes you get used to him throwing 60yrd td passes...

    This guy has all of the tools to be very succesful at the college level and would be perfect, imo, for the offense Pelini and Beck say they want to build

    Its impressive. Hope he learns that playbook quickly and gets his opportunity.

    If he isnt able to learn it quick enough maybe they can bring in Peyton Manning to teach T-Mart proper mechanics.

    Is it sac-religious or bad Karma to say Touchdown Tommy act 2?

    Texas came into the picture late, but Tommy told them he wasn't interested. Incredible athlete for sure.

    He looks like the real deal. I would hate to see him have to wait til 2014 to see the field. I just hope he does his part to learn the playbook and then is given a chance to compete.

    Me too. If he is 2nd string, lets hope we get up 40 points so he can get some PT.

    Tommy looks smooth, we kept hearing how the playbook got simpler and hopefully Tommy can get at least ready for some action. Any opinions on whether or not he red shirts?

    I think it would be incredibly difficult for Armstrong to unseat the two year starter in Carnes hasn't been able to do it yet. With that said, my vote is red shirt. I don't believe he'll be here for spring, so he'd have to pick it all up DAMN quick.

    Exactly right. He'd start the season as no better than 3rd string and would be best served redshirting. It's not like Bo would give him much of a chance (if even one play) in backup duty anyhow. Let's cross our fingers that Armstrong doesn't transfer after spending his first two seasons not getting a snap.

    I can understand a redshirt this fall, but to not get some quality snaps in 2013 would be stupid on Bo's part. If Armstrong is to start in 2014, he needs playing time and then, who knows what may happen.

    I don't disagree.
