It's hard to tell much from that Academy. I remember Tanner Lee having a great camp over there one year. He was praised by everyone. But his actual game day play was not up to the praise in that camp. I appreciate the info though. Thanks.

Lets see how he looks in August when they are scrimmaging with Pads on and the defense is coming after him. How well does he connect with the receivers and how well does he know the playbook.

Hope that's not the same source that said Spoon was the next coming on the mound. :mrgreen:

On a serious note it's good to hear. He'll have better coaching than Tanner got but the offensive line play still needs to improve for Banks to have a chance or any of our QB's for that matter.

Everybody at MPA is always "looking sharp," "improving," "really asserting himself," etc. Never is heard a discouraging word from the Manning Passing Academy.
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

This. We will see what Banks looks like in the fall.

It was disappointing to hear the interview with Banks at the end of the camp. When asked if he learned anything that will translate to better play this coming season, he talked about leadership. I would have preferred he discuss improving his arm strength, footwork, looking off the DB's, etc. All things that were reported as needing improvement after our spring "game".

Yes. Thought that as well. Hopefully he can lead us to wins!

As far as our passing game goes, one good thing about last season is we've got nowhere to go but up! Heck, that applies to running the option as well. Our QB decision-making on those plays resulted in a whole lot of QB draw plays, no pitch and little yardage. IT MUST IMPROVE.

A few. Bama QB solid. A few others may shine during this upcoming season.

What's amusing is a post on the YOGWF, crying about the TP/Nola.com/Adovacate site giving too much credit to LSU:
It will be nice to read at graduation, “former lsu QB gets degree worth framing”.
He got his degree in the spring of 2018, which is why he was able to play for Tulane in the fall of 2018. He should get a graduate degree in spring of 2020, but who knows?

The number that couldn't start for Tulane can be counted on pretty much one hand.

Tanner Lee didn't have it. Good coach or bad coach, the kid stunk up the joint. Hopefully, Banks shows improvement. The kid at least has wheels.
Banks is gone, you're responding to a post from 2 years ago.
