Is anyone else questioning the source? Looks like just some dude to me. This rumor might hold as much water as the UM BOOSTER CONFIRMED thread.

Funny how everyone always references Spring Game performances as some sort of major predictor for success.  The list of Spring Game MVPs is litered with people who made zero real impact in a meaningful game.  If he had "superior talent" he wouldn't have "limited action".

Edit - you edited your comment, but your revision prompts a new question.  Top 5 what?  Top 5 player on the team??

Holy hell, the forum is just going to be a pile of poo by the time June rolls around.

Absolutely agree.  I think it all starts with the offensive staff losing confidence in itself as play callers.  That trickles down to the players.  I don't think anyone will fully know how much of an effect the trilogy of the ankle injury, watching Cardale win the NC, and then subsequently pressing too hard and losing the job in 2015 had on JT's psyche.  He's said all the right things, but 2015 was such a disaster that was saved by having Zeke on the field. 

I honestly didn't even notice that all 22 players were in the same frame until it was pointed out in this article. The angle behind JT on the throw to Baugh is an example of terrible spacing/play design.  If the offensive staff is turned over and we see the same results, then we'll all have our answer and half of us can eat crow.  But until then, I expect that JT can return to form.

JT from 2014 against Michigan State would like a word with you.  He hit Devin Smith twice that game, with ease and both were beautiful throwns and on the money.  His throw to Smith on 3rd and 23 that Smith caught over the shoulder near the sideline might have been the best ball he's thrown here. JT is capable - but scheme, personnel and protection have to be right.  He's not Michael Vick who could just flick his wrist for 60 yards while on the run.
