You’ve gotta love semi-profound observations like this:
Replacing a two-year starting quarterback? Not a problem. Recall that Gus Malzahn had done that every year as a college coach until last season. Plus, most SEC coaches thought Jeremy Johnson would have (or should have) overtaken Nick Marshall last fall. Johnson’s ability as a passer has the league’s DCs buzzing this summer, that’s for sure.
So Malzahn is an offensive genius who wasn’t sharp enough to play his best option at the most important position on offense last season? Roger that.
