Based on the small sample of this scrimmage, I would prefer Bauman as the 2nd stringer.

McKay’s mobility and quick release really set him apart.
Don't give up on Rovig yet, he's only won 11 games! :D
I'm probably in the minority but after watching the scrimmage, Rovig is still my starter. That said, if there is no wind and McKay hits those wide open deep shots I probably change my mind but I just didn't see the accuracy on the deep balls from him and I think that's what our offense sorely needs. He also missed McCutcheon a couple times when he was wide open over the middle and at least one would have been a TD. We have enough rbs that I don't feel we need the qb who is a "true" running threat and Rovig moves well enough. Of course its also tough to say for any of the blue QBs because they didn't really get multiple drives in a row so they might not have been in rhythm as much. IF we have a spring season it will be very interesting which direction they decide to go, steady eddie or potential.
How did you feel Bauman played? Just curious. This was a very small sample size but the format of the scrimmage kind of set up the QBs to struggle with continuity from the beginning and find who could get settled in the best over the course of the day.
Plus, as Vim pointed out earlier, the wind had to have been a factor. I live exactly 2 miles southwest of campus and the wind was absolutely howling (as it is again today.....). I am anxious to see if the new BAC has an affect on the wind through the stadium once it is fully up.
Gosh, I just dont think the BAC will be tall enough to block any wind. But, I have not seen it in person. I am not here to say anything negative about the BAC. Its awesome and going to be huge for the program. I just dont think it will be big enough to block any wind. Also, so much wind comes through the northwest gap in the stadium.
That's kind of what I think too. It could be 200 feet tall and I think wind is going to shoot through that gap. Even if the stadium was completely enclosed, wind is going to get in, and then it is going to swirl and be even more unpredictable. I might be wrong but it seems like the only way to not have wind in Bozeman is to play inside.

I feel like the Bobcats are set up to have a great home field advantage based on different wind conditions at Bobcat Stadium. Knowing which end to start from, knowing parts of the field that might not be as affected by wind, knowing when to bait an opposing team into a throw they shouldn't make, and obviously having a good running game to keep the ball out of the wind.
Interesting discussion on the wind. Yes, the building will have an effect. All buildings do. Wind will condense and increase as it wraps around and over that building. It's a lot bigger than the block houses, which I don't think made much of a difference. It'll be interesting to see what happens and, yes, once MSU gets it figured out, it'll be to their advantage.

Bauman looked amazing starting out but then kind of fell into the same issues he's always had. He flashes that jaw-dropping talent but is inconsistent. I kind of wish he would have rotated with Rovig instead of Mellotte(his time will come) so that he got more time. Really wish we could get a scrimmage in without the gale-force winds for once.
