We have Fields, we have some talented young guys entering the program at that position so that's good, but I think we're stuck in a chicken vs the egg situation. We get fairly talented guys, but we can't develop them so we wind up with inconsistent quarterback play, but since we can't develop guys, we're not going to be attractive to the FBS transfers. We'll be stuck in a bad spot until we can develop talent at that position. By finally getting dual threat guys like Fields, Zamot, etc. at the position, we can complement our already run heavy offense with a mobile quarterback, while at the same time masking our inability to develop QB talent!! Brilliant I have to say  ;D

Jokes aside, that's really how I see it. Best we can hope for in the near term is that the running threat a mobile QB brings opens up some passing opportunities for whoever we put back there. We're not going to develop them into a great passer, so they might as well be able to scramble and move the ball with their feet. I can't recall SBU ever having a true dual threat quarterback in the past. Didn't fit with Priore's traditional style of offense in the past anyhow.

I'm not even sure what to say any more about this "beating a dead horse" topic. Coach P is not going to ever change, and the QB situation is going to be the same as Carbone for the next 4 years. It is what it is. We all know what needs to be done to take this program to the upper echelons of the FCS, and it's not this current coaching staff. Oh, well. Thank god it's over and now we can focus 100% on Basketball..
