Re: The hopefully definitive 2021 transfer portal thread

Shelley is athletic though and does have some talent. Here's a highlight of his biggest career game when he led Utah to a big comeback win over BYUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-H-gm6-6rE. I think there's a chance he could be a very serviceable QB for Missouri State. Interesting video. I like th...

Hi...hopefully I'm asking this in the right place. :) Missouri State football coach Bobby Petrino announced today (out of the blue) that Jason Shelley has transferred to MSU and will be competing for the starting QB job.

Re: Recruiting news

I don’t get it. The kid is ripped, he ran an 11 second 100 meter dash his junior year, he’s 6’3”, the coaches obviously see talent since they offered, and yet we’re his only FBS offer?! What gives?

Re: Hunter hill

No decisions were made in spring about which quarterback was first or second (except conclusions drawn by the media)-- Anderson made the decision to leave that to fall. My view is that in many cases Legas outplayed Peasley. Peasley is a better runner than thrower, while Legas seemed to be a lot bet...
