N. Illinois Week Practice Thread: 14 Sept. Coach Rhule


I suspect HH gets the start and it isn't going to be pretty. Sims is most likely the best option we have for QB this year. Maybe sit him a game to let him get his head right. But if HH or Purdy couldn't beat him out this year, that means they aren't very good IMO.

I respectfully disagree somewhat here. Sims may very well be the best option that we have but this was the hand chosen guy that MR and MS brought in and barring unbelievable play by HH or CP I believe that he was gonna get the 1st shot. Everyone has biases including coaches and see what they want to see in a player to a point as it’s an in exact science.

Sims may throw better but HH should be able to keep up running with Sims as I don’t see him as extremely elusive or do anything special running that HH couldn’t do.

I believe the margin is small athletically speaking so if HH can make the right reads in the running game and keep from turning the ball over he should be more than serviceable for Saturday. If we need to run the 2 minute O then we’re probably n trouble regardless if it’s HH or JS.
 



Just a hunch, but wouldn’t Sims know the extent of his own injury? Or is your conspiracy that he also wants Haaberg to start? Who all would be in on this hoax? Good lord.
Ypu act as of this staff has not already sat injured players longer then they wanted. See Fidone
 





I don't know why they think they have to do that, but Satterfield's comments border on ludicrous the degree to which he is trying to make the turnovers not be Sims' fault. He could say, "Jeff screwed up but it's my fault he was't ready for thd crowd noise." But instead he talks almost like there was no QB involved. Seems pretty weird.

WOW....fragile coaching staff seems like. Ya know, if HH is so bad that he cant equal the turnover count on Sims, maybe they should play him to see if they cant get something going like went on between Mantle and Maris. Having said that, the guys on the team know whats what. If a guy is hurt and you play him anyway, that tells the back ups to hit the transfer portal if they want to play.
 

I went and listened to the pc. This apparently meaningless tweet is just McKewon screwing up and not giving the context.

Sam asked Satterfield about starting on the road against decent teams instead of against patsies at home. Satterfield replied right now it sucks but it will pay off down the road.

Simple as that. Satt was fine.

After listening to the pc, Satt was that way at the beginning, but ended up saying something later that was way more frank and not contorted.

Frankly these reporters could do a better job getting the story down right before they tweet it.
