Does anybody know the official status on Murray? Is he back in Bozeman, coming back, or is that just a bunch of gossip? It would be a great story if he could put it together and return better than ever. As young as he is, a year off may have been a good thing.
Chris might not be the ideal QB that some are looking for, but could you imagine Chris, Troy, Logan, and Isiash in the backfield with Kassis and Johnson on the corners? Throw in the possibility of having Jabrari back and the speed and experience we would have at the offensive skill positions would be insane!

I think the only news is what Murray tweetwed, that "he will be a part of MSU". Very vague, but I don't see why he'd come back up to Bozeman if he didn't think he could be a part of the team again, whatever that role may be.

I think Rovig could be a good quarterback. When he's on, he has all the skills to get it done. Troy could also be the guy but he would probably be better suited as an RB. With Jensen out of the picture, Jonsen is the only other guy who's had any reps as QB and he'll play WR and Wildcat.

What is the status of Rovig's injury? I heard he could be out well into the summer. Was it that serious?

I liked the idea of Gresch Jensen being the QB until that was a bust. Never really thought the Cats had much of an opportunity with Modster. So, now, that puts the Cats right back to where they were when the season finished, Two Freshmen, one redshirt Freshmen, a linebacker/running back used as a quarterback, one academically ineligible quarterback possibly coming back, and a high school commit out of Illinois, for next years options.

Who's it gonna be?

I'm gonna say a transfer 'yet to be determined'.......maybe a JC or maybe an FBS drop down. Although, IF Murray makes it back, I wouldn't count him out. GOOD LUCK COACHES!

Coaches are looking to add a transfer AND freshman quarterback in this next class. I get the impression that Ekern is not on the board anymore.

Seems like we are running short on time to get a transfer in here for Spring unless the recruiting rules are different for JC and FBS transfers. It was mentioned in another thread that the dead period starts Monday and goes to January 10. Classes must be starting shortly after the 10th.

I'm saying it will be Rovig/Bauman/Beltran... who will fight this out at this point. I listed them in the order of likelihood of winning the spot.

This kid committed to Brown earlier this year after receiving an offer from us. He has since decommitted and pinned the tweet with our offer. Might be nothing, might be something. Seems to have pretty good tape....

I believe this has become such a hyped event that kids are pressured more than ever to make a choice. Once the relief of choosing sets in, then reality sets in and the kid has a change of heart. Lots of stress for an 18 year old kid.

Their head coach of 20 years resigned at the end of the season. Probably a significant factor in Tyler’s change of commitment.

I said it earlier in the thread, but I personally do not believe we have the ability to acquire the type of QB transfer that will come in and make an immediate impact in the passing game. I may be a Negative Nancy, but I don't see a passing QB look at our offense how it has been run over the last few years and then think to himself, "Yeah, that's where I will showcase my talents." Not to mention that all a kid has to do is see how many QBs this staff has recruited, only to convert them into another position. The only type of QB interested in coming here will be the kind we already have. Run-first, throw-second.

We were told by the current coaching staff that both Rovig and Baumann were the real deal when they were both recruited. That these guys were the future of Bobcat football. We were told how freakishly talented Beltran is. Then give these guys a serious chance to win the job. Period. If one of these can't win the job, then we might have to start thinking we have problems either developing or recruiting the QB position.
