The Final Four, the semi finals, The Final Four.
We're ready to rock.
We got to Pac 12 1 Big 10 1 sec all over the country.
We got Tie Thompson committed to Oregon.
If our Ducks fans air with us, let us know heated up in the chat.
We need to get that chat heated on up.
You need to get the juice to get around up.
We got Peter Casino.
Lose our man or man's Maxwell, right? Maxwell's a duck, right? No, Maxwell's a Longhorn.
Maxwell is probably probably the big bald guy. He's just here.
He wants him some football in May, even if school that's exactly right.
He's a football, A made guy.
He's that he is that really the heart of Thai Thompson Gate, where where we may have made a decision to roll with Jalen and Row as we check.
The tape went a different way, and Maxwell's really been at the at the core of that and comment on her pictures, making sure to let us know he's pitched.
He's keeping us and checked up.
You need that is so, Yeah, we got Peter Castelli, Utah Utes.
We all know how big of a fan base Max has with the Utah loyal.
So that'll be a good one.
Track star track Phanom.
Uh, Kaio McCord.
Everything about Kyle.
Kyle is looking like the favorite right now.
I mean, that's the biggest difference with this round versus the past rounds is now.
I have context on these kids, so he might be the same, but might I think he's the one seed nuts, Myers, I would say my course record by the one Thus Myers the two.
I know they fall on the same side of the bracket.
That's just kind of have the cookie crumble.
Tie Thompson is the three seed only because it looked like when we got off air there.
I mean, I know for me at least a little buzz around them.
I think Costello is the four seed, but the Pac 12 Pac 12 guys air on the same side of the brackets.
Love and Maxwell just hopped in.
The chatty said they would up Maxwell, shout out, Yeah, shout out, Maxwell. I love that.
Build a loyal following.
We dio So yeah, let's let's hop into it the bracket kind of dictated that we would go with Thai Thompson first.
Max, I'll leave it up to you.
What do you feeling? You want to go to where you wanna go? Tire.
You wanna hop into Kyle? Uh, where? Well, let's go tie. Let's go.
Ty Borden, Duck Any Oregon Ducks fans in the chat? Little roll call.
We got anyone keep on duck in.
I remember that was That was someone.
If not, we'll just hop right in.
We're going to go for this round.
We're going to go to the latter half of their highlights.
We saw, you know, we saw the initial four minutes.
You know, that's gonna be the sizzle.
That's gonna be a lot of the juice.
We're into the splitting hairs now.
Oh, yeah? Oh, yeah.
Everyone's first minute.
If your first minute your highlight tape is not elite, even if you're not even a big time quarterback recruit like these guys and some things up.
So you gotta dive into minute 345 That's Ah, that's where the truth comes out a little bit.
Even though there still is a highlight.
Yeah, that is where the truth lies.
And so we're gonna be starting at minute six.
This is about halfway through the highlight tape.
We're gonna hop in here.
We're gonna do it.
We're gonna break him down, talk through it, chat.
If there's anything you see anything you want us to go over any questions you have, Please let us know, and we'll dive into that as well.
So without further ado, Tie Thompson, you're on the clock, my friend Thompson.
And for those of you that might be knew and didn't see my last breakdown my cop for tight Thompson with Brent Huntley coming out of the same state.
Similar skill set for me.
Um, that's my calm.
No good to note.
Good to note, Brent.
See if that holds up in this second evaluation Rolls to the right.
All right. Easy pitching catch.
So he's he's mobile.
Where we netted out was he was mobile, but not absolutely dynamic.
And we actually I think of the we had we had real quick, Max.
We had Thai on the instagram Livestream today with the leagues that year talking a little bit and this is actually something that came up was Malik asked him about, You know, the historic nature of Oregon Ducks and the athleticism that comes with the quarterback position and who fills that and time made a point that really, this upcoming senior season form as well as the offseason, something that he was really working on was his athleticism and his ability to kind of fill that role for him.
So I thought that was interesting coming into this.
That is interesting.
And when I hear that part, me kind of says like, you either have it or you don't if we're being honest, like I mean, I know for me I can work out on my athleticism all I want when, When the time comes, it's kind of either.
It feels like you have that that knack or you don't.
But obviously, as guys get bigger and faster, they could grow into that.
And that's a good point, kind of we've seen over the past decade, the organ quarterbacks having different moulds.
Darrin Thomas in a Marcus Mariota who are absolutely dynamic.
Then you go Jeremiah solely.
That's bringing it back even longer.
That's when I was in middle school, early high school, who was a little bit more rugged.
Uh, does enough with his feet and keeps you honest.
Keep forces the defense to prepare, but then still has a lot with his arm and to me from seeing three minutes of of ties footage, he probably falls Maurin that most solely category.
But, hey, we'll dive into the back half and find out for sure, rolling with laugh sets out wide open.
OK, too easy pitching catches to start off.
I like that, though.
A little sample.
I know you talked about a sample size of throw and right throwing left.
He's got rolling out to the right, rolling out to the left and again, this is their bread and butter with this offensive little half.
Well, I like it.
Okay, Steps up, drives a little curl round.
Why we get the circle of death going.
Can't have that circle of death.
Ah, a lot of rollouts.
I don't mind that.
I don't mind that it's a good opportunity to show the athleticism, maybe his O line struggling.
That's oftentimes when you see a lot of rollouts, especially the high school level, I mean shoot any level of football you're rolling out a lot, sometimes trying to protect young offensive tackles or tackles.
I might have their hands full.
We can get into the office of wine breakdown like I 74 right here. Getting out.
Well, the kind of vehicle with death right here is not is not gonna work for us right here looking, my man.
74 getting out here on the run.
A broader fall action.
Yeah, he carries the ball a little bit lower.
Um, at least to me more so kind of mid chest rather than sometimes you'll see guys on the shelf.
I don't think it's right wrong.
Either way, it's just a matter whether he get the ball out quick.
And to me, he does.
He has every bed, every bit of quick release that you want.
I will say, though, when you talk about some of the guys we're going to see tonight in a column accord or a Nuss Meyer, the ball feels like it really jumps off their hand.
I'm not necessarily getting that impression with tie right here.
You get that bonuses and you get the smooth delivery.
You get the accuracy but the even meet arm strength.
I don't know if I'm necessarily seeing that right away where we go, we just got to get open.
What? Little pump fake to the swing.
That's the slant clear behind it.
A lot of half rolls, A lot of half rolls.
Yeah, where you go s capability.
That's hard to do. That's an impressive throw.
Whips it in there. He's not able to get downhill.
Two episodes ago, I talked about the importance of getting downhill for quarterbacks.
Is it allows you to have good mechanics and give velocity on the football? That's hard to do if you're drifting towards your right and able to whip it there, It's almost the cardinal sin have thrown across your body.
He's about a beat.
If he's a beach shorter or I guess, ah, be longer.
I guess in this scenario, that's that.
That's the Cardinal sin where interceptions happen.
But he gets away with it here, but it's a good throw.
Shows his arm strength for sure, I was just, uh is that the line that bad? Or these rollouts? By design Maxwell.
That's a good question.
If I'm a betting man, I would say it's a little bit of both Ah, a lot of times, you know, I think the New England Patriots really laid this out, but it's kind of be adaptable to the personnel that you have on the field and that you have on the team.
What do you think? I'm right with you? Yeah, I think when you're seeing this time and time again, if I'm in the O.
C chair and I'm up in the booth, it's screaming.
Hey, we're worried about our offensive line and how they're holding up so within.
Maybe it's a combination of like we said if he is athletic, or he is obviously athletic, but it allows thes type of place to put more pressure on the defense he's extending to get.
He's getting outside of the pocket that can put outside linebackers in a bind, So there's probably little bit of that.
But, uh, I'm putting my chips more so towards the offensive line struggles.
Now, what do you think? What? What were you taught, whether in high school or in college, in terms of a play breaking down this same scenario? You know, I remember UCF on offense.
You're always told wide receivers come back to the ball work to the sideline, whatever side of the field that the quarterback is rolling out to.
If there any kind of coaching points for this wide receiver or something that you see again through a critical eye, our critical lens with this play and really any broken play in general, what would you say? Yeah, that's a great point.
I think they will do a good job.
That receiver we can see on the loan receiver we can see on the screen does a good job working back towards his receiver and kind of the coach, his quarterback.
The coaching point there is stay on different levels, right? So if you have three receivers in a concept, you don't want the same guy.
Sit in the same level, allows defenders or one defender to guard two guys if you're the short man kind of in the flat.
One of my favorite things is a little check mark, so you fake like you're going up and then flip your hips around and allowed in.
Allow your quarterback to have easy safety valve and just get a completion.
And if you're away from the ball, find a way to just work latterly get towards the quarterback, get on his level.
But I think the biggest thing is stay on different levels.
If you're a receiver and if you're that short man in the flat, check mark a little bit.
Vehicle for Max's best friend, even if it's only a 23 yard play.
Get something positive and get a completion now.
Ah, this is organ USC for the Pac 12 championship.
You are, uh, ties quarterback coach.
In this scenario, he makes this throw completes it.
What do you say to him after? Good job? That's it.
I think you leave it at that.
You may be that that I think, uh, maybe Monday morning when they get in the quarterback room, then you can bring up the point I brought up in that.
If he was a beat later, that's almost the Cardinal sin of a quarterback.
But players make plays.
You scored touchdown as a quarterback or as a quarterback coach, you're walking away happy.
Uh, L s u 878 cup Powell ice Curl rounds.
Action shows the quick release, which I touched on earlier.
I like that good base compact explosive ball pops out of his hands there.
Yeah, I do like that.
They're making a quick read deliver in a straight, you know, country mild.
Threw that ball again.
Half roll sets up.
Okay, The one thing we're not seeing in this highlight film is pure progression.
Concepts where he's going from 1 to 2 to three and checking the ball down or drag drag dig over the middle.
That's the That's the problem.
If you're going half rolls, is your usually cut in the field in half? And he's getting kind, either.
High Low reads A B reads 12 reads.
Or these are Pios, where he's reading one linebacker. And that's it.
One thing we're not seeing, which I have a feeling we're going to see more.
So with a column accord or Garrett Nussmeier is thes true.
Full field progression throws and, uh, jumping ahead a little bit.
That that's a hard thing to it, or that can be a hard thing to adjust to when you talk about Ty going to the college level and he hasn't seen those concepts and I'm jumping the gun.
You're obviously only seen 90 seconds of film, but if that is the case.
I mean, at the college level, you're seeing a lot of pure progressions.
That's bread and butter, especially for organ, especially in that offense.
And so that is something that could potentially make it worthwhile for him to redshirt kind of Akram eight to college before he's being forced into the gun early.
That's one thing that jumps out to me.
Yeah, I think that's a great point in terms of players getting drafted to the NFL, you always talked about you always talk about their project ability and the stigma of guys like Patrick Mahomes and the Reeds in the decision making they make in terms of translate to the NFL game.
I think it's still holds true in high school, and the goal of a coach is the simplify concepts on and execute the play that's called and so no fault on anybody.
But just as the game is stepping up multiple reads, allowing you to make more decisions on the field, sometimes it makes you play slower.
That's what coaches want to eliminate, and that's why you see some of the transition issues is as you get to the higher levels.
There's just more things at work where you have to just understand fully these concepts and know exactly what's going on within the play, which is sometimes hard for young player, No doubt.
Yeah, I mean, he's got pretty Oh, there we go.
That's the one man in the decision making.
I'm trying to look for someplace where we can really evaluate the decision making.
It seems like in all of these places got pretty clear cut, you know, understanding of exactly who he's going to hit the ball.
I mean, I like it it.
Like you said, a simple offense allows a guy like Thai Thompson to just react and be the player he is, so I don't mind it.
And once again, it if they are having some personnel struggles and who knows about that? I mean, I totally level with with that for sure.
But like you said in terms of fit it into tight windows and that your progression, that's something we're missing a little bit, as I say that he puts it into a tight window right there with the linebacker, huh? Don this guy, but, um yeah.
What? Wanna want to see more of the pocket, but for sure, Great athlete throws the ball well up here.
You can see why. Organs excited. Bingo.
Yeah, let's see if we can.
Let's see if we could find any kind of progression.
Pocket progression throws for him.
And I don't mean a short changing to, like right there.
That's a progression, right? I'm sure he's going through his dig greed, and then the wheel flash is wide open.
So if it's open and you could get the ball out quick, then by all means go for it. Do it.
You should get the ball your hands as quick as possible.
Um, but just with all this stuff, we're splitting hairs, for sure.
Steps up, steps out.
What happened there? Oh, she needed down.
You see, there's, though, get some collisions on the field, so I love it. Here we go.
We don't want to.
Oh, well friendly, fire friendly fire Some, you know, always Aziz.
Well, as trips to the boundary on that last play, let's go back and see that concept, but they run in there.
It's this next black think.
I believe it's the next one.
That it? It's the one after this.
It's after after after friendly fire here after friendly carpool.
Three receivers to the bottom.
Tough as a defense, especially given the one quarterback who's athletic gotta respect him and have numbers in the box.
But if you look at just numbers to the boundary on the bottom, that screen they got two dudes out there.
You could throw a bubble screen.
Go man on, man blocked this up.
You get five yards in your sleep every single day.
I'm not sure what the down and distance is, but that's the first thing I look at.
Right is the down and distance.
It looks like it's first in 10 so let's go.
According Let's just throw a nice little little bubble route.
Little smoke, Screen of the outside.
Have your receivers blocking this could be a run game.
Uh, L s u 8788 What do you think Leonard Fernet would do if he got caught a little screen out to the flat right there and just had seven yards of open field to be able to run with? You think you'd be able to get a first now at seven.
Will turn into 70 riel.
Quick to the house turned into the old Miss highlight guys.
Derrick Henry was the big name. My class.
I can't imagine that. High school.
That's just unfair.
It would look like you remember that old school Greg Jones.
Highlight Florida State in Tallahassee when the player's helmet came off giving little forearm shiver to the chest.
I gotta study up.
I gotta study at that.
Sounds, uh, sounds nearly the oh, man.
We might have to take a break to show you that clip.
I mean, chat letters Now that you want to see some old school Greg Jones forearm shiver to the chest, that was, like, Yeah, let's take okay from this.
No, I What do we get? Yeah, I'm sorry.
We're going rogue were growing road.
Maxwell wants to see it.
He'd be in the end zone with that much space.
I agree. I agree.
Greg Jones, Florida State.
Yeah, I think we'll go this stiff arm.
It's probably solid out here he goes.
Yeah. Greg Jones. Tattoos.
This is an old school clip.
This was back in the day.
I remember me and my buddies watch his game live.
I think I was in middle school or something.
And going absolutely wild.
Talk about the liver and a boy food.
How have I never seen this? What the heck? Oh, yeah, That's violent.
I like it. Just a club.
He's on the ground.
He didn't even know what happened here.
And that's a flag nowadays, right? Got solidly a flag on the running back.
I think it's gotta be right.
I think he went to the head and neck area, or they call it something like that.
But in reality to four.
He's working his tail off.
He's, you know, coaching coach.
You know that pursuit True. We talked about.
I'm running. I'm running. I'm running.
I'm gonna get a bone.
We're gonna go lower.
That's a big back.
That's a big back.
We gotta go lower.
He's rocking that right knee brace to owe him right there.
Yeah, he actually Jacksonville turned him into a full back.
So we didn't even get to play.
You didn't get the play.
It's on brand, Maxwell says.
Looks like Derrick Henry Stiff Arm and Earl Thomas.
Derek Henry's tall Derek Henry's To me, it is taller than that.
But I'm with you.
That Derrick Henry Earl Thomas Earl URLs legit to We were saying that North Carolina safety might be just trying to trying to make his money get his brownie points for film.
That's Ah, that's a fair, fair calm.
Let's watch a couple more Here go.
Oh, I think this is what we got.
The pro tip from the organ fan toe.
Really fast forward to the end, and it looks like I'm getting to feel that he's segmenting his highlights, which I'm not like the biggest fan.
I'm a little bit removed from it, but rights we got, he went basically, always like rollouts and one.
Then it felt like he's doing now.
He sprinkled in some progressions and there, but now he's doing all his mobility.
So do you think we said I think this is a good example of when you get it in chunks like we do like some coaches will.
Right now, every coach is gonna watch every single bit of your footage.
That's the worry of segmenting it that we didn't We didn't get this part of him.
Which is, I guess, just a risk When you four minute like this.
Yeah, I went rogue again.
I went toe, minute five to see if maybe we missed him.
Pocket progression type throws Nebraska Cornhuskers says.
Let's see some Tommie Frazier comparisons.
Tommy Frazier. There's a name.
There's a name from the past.
Someone educate me on Tommy Frazier.
Drop something. Give us a little context.
I got to, uh, study up to a bracelet.
Was there keeping the nineties right? I'm embarrassed myself.
I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure early two thousands, I believe, But, well, I think so then So then here we go, though, but I guess this is this is part this is Part of the game is, uh, we only can watch so much, but it looks like he's getting into some of some of his progression pocket progressions right here.
So we might be missing out a little bit on some of the pocket game, but an ex that something's happened him. Maxwell Maxwell.
Here's the answer to the age old question of Is his old line.
Let's check it out.
I think this play will summarize it.
I do not think that's a screen.
I do not think that this is, uh this is a screen we got today.
How many they bring, though? He's making him pay.
They bring pressure.
Get the ball out. Fine.
You're single coverage.
2466 They bring in one more than he could handle your right.
Your, uh but I'm with it.
That's, uh, that right side got a little leakage.
What idea? Well, I think, uh, I think we've seen what we need to see.
What do you think? I'm good? Let's see what Costello has got going on.
Yeah, I'm excited to see cost Ellie Costello.
We got night bought, so I turned on night bought chat.
This is supposed to be a nice little moderator.
It says Heidi, if you say something like, hey or hi.
And this thing is really on a power trip.
We had a Nebraska Cornhuskers trying to send some links and night Bott has just given him the axis, and that's a no go we'll get that turned off for next time and you'll be ableto post the links.
But we're moving onto Castelli once again for the fans at home.
You didn't tune in.
We got a sub 1100 meter sprinter in the house of Peter Costello.
He committed to Utah.
Um, what do you think about Peter coming into this? I'm pretty excited, Teoh.
Fast forward a little bit. See what we got.
Yeah, Peter is interesting.
I've off the air, got a few evils of super strong arm.
He's a pocket guy, but is also a sprinter which, like you never hear.
Usually, if you're fast at all, you're in the deal correct category.
So that part's unique, Um, questions about his touch may be and whether he's able to layer the ball.
I'm excited to get into the back half of his highlight film when you kind of get away from may be the best plays and really dive in tow, maybe more of the kind of the neutral, just solid place to get a true true assessment of where he's at absolutely well, I think once again we'll have been his his highlight films only four minutes or so curious if if we worked our way through it.
But we'll fast forward to the kind of the two minute mark here.
Uh, and we'll hop in and we'll see what we can.
He's Ah, he's playing the game, right? You know, just getting your best four minutes.
There's only so much you can evaluate.
It's the ball are correct.
A little bit of a tangent for you, your quarterback coach. Urano.
See how Maney clips.
You think you need to evaluate a player before pulling the trigger? Making an offer depends on the guy.
Depends on the guy.
I mean, you you show me, I'm blanking on his name.
But the Texas guy, we we looked at Jalen Millrose.
You show me Jalen Mill Row That one play where he duke out the entire defense.
All offer him on the spot.
But we're talking about some of the other guys.
I need to see more throws.
Some Some quarterbacks jump off the tape, others don't.
But that's the beauty of recruiting.
You got to find the hidden gems.
In the pocket gets out. This is worries.
This is where it is legal.
Gosh, that looks like Tyler Huntley a lot.
Utah's quarterback from last year.
Yeah, those great straight line speed.
He's not necessarily, like juke you out of your shoes, But when he gets up and going gets, ah, make some things happen.
Light orange helmets too, huh? The speed is for sure.
Draws for sure there.
I love this s capability right here. Look at the down and distance.
Always checking out the DND.
We got 1/3 and seven here.
Play breaks down a little bit.
First down to be draw.
Oh, numbers game could call O c.
All right, All right, Let's check out a little, Uh, let's go a little deeper on Peter.
Well, you can dive into that.
Those 2018 it's too.
Oh, we get the full games.
You interested in the 2018 at all? As I was saying this to 2018 he got the benefit of the doubt by facing Garcia's 2018 last year.
Give him a taste of his own medicine.
New number, New school number.
New School. New Younis.
Interesting being in Southern California.
I shouldn't know that school, but that's interesting.
Usually don't see a Pac 12 Division one quarterback after transfer schools, but I guess Mission Viejo is a big football school, not the biggest.
So maybe he's just leveled up trying to prove himself.
But I wonder what would happen there.
A little bit of news to for the chat.
Last time we hopped on, we talked J. J. McCarthy.
He was at, I believe, Nazareth Academy.
He just transferred I m g Academy.
They got another one.
They got another one.
They got another one.
I think that's a curious trend.
To see how that plays out, that intra high school transferring, especially from public to private and especially when you're already committed to I mean, uh, that, to be honest, that rubs me the wrong way a little bit.
I'm a guy that went to a public school for high school.
The guys I played with in high school.
I knew since I was shoot 678 years old.
I mean, that was the best part of high school football for me, and I get it.
I'm not an idiot.
I know what I am G kind of brings to the table, But, uh, I know for me that would not have been my company.
And I'm a kid from Washington's.
That would have been a a long move, but, uh, yeah, like to your point mission to see if that kind of if more schools like that pop up and Maxwell's educating us a little bit, Maxwell appreciate it.
Hey, said McCarthy said a lot of it was because Illinois may suspend high school football in the fall.
That makes sense.
So take everything I said of the grand assault.
If you clip this video footage, you better.
You better include this part.
Uh, that makes total sense.
That's actually great point.
Does that transfer look bad? Toe Horrible? Uh, I don't know the state of Illinois high school football right now, but I cannot blame a kid.
If he's saying my high school football season might not happen, I'm gonna go down to the SEC country where it's likely going to happen.
I don't like my role.
I agree, I think, with some of the context that Maxwell was able to provide.
You can't fault the player for Just want to get on the field.
This script interesting.
This is against modern day who pressure was like the number one team in the country last year released up there.
Oh, there's this touchdown, just a little slant.
But from the eight clips we've seen, he looks a lot more comfortable in savvy in the pocket.
Junior sop****re year.
I was just going to say that I feel like I'm watching a different player.
I don't know if it's just the unions that are throwing me, but yeah, you get the sense he's a little more calculated at in his sop****re film and junior junior film.
Lookie, lookie Where we playing Mission Viejo? What? Visiting school.
I hope you beat them.
I hope he beat them on their own turf.
That's that's Southern California high school football.
That's not how I mean.
I guess it's changing were 2020.
Now you see more and more of this, but there so many transfers down here.
I'm not sure out is out your neck of the woods, but it feels like it's free agency season.
Almost every, uh, so that's one thing I I hate to have tie work against him.
Well, there he fits it in love this view.
I love this view.
Second window throw well, second window slant holding her back foot.
But the linebacker who's floating to the flat or floating to the hook curl past year record right behind his face mask.
What do you think about the death of these defensive backs Are playing here with with this little, you know, stack formation, But I don't know what you call it.
Yeah, that's goofy.
Um, I don't mind it, though, cause I guess in some regard your kind of having just to safety, like, way over the top.
But as a result, you're gonna lose numbers elsewhere.
When you have two guys completely allocated at sides, you go 2468 10 and there's another safe. You over there.
The middle of the field could get susceptible when you have that both those guys out there.
But the reason they're doing it is obviously, if someone goes short, they could have the front guy jumped at the back.
Guys is ready to jump on anything in breaking.
Or that may be a little deeper curl route.
But you don't always see the information that often.
Okay? I love that play action.
Oh, hey, now I'm going to go for the pylon.
I respect that like a big boy down here. 72 things.
He loves it. Either way, though.
It says welcome to the jungle.
When I guess is his new team wreak havoc re Taliqan mission to you? Interesting.
I want to know more about this transfer.
Yeah, look it up, you know, look at that.
You see what drugs they went down.
I think we've seen enough.
I think we've seen enough bullet over in terms of, you know, digesting what? What's happened from tied to Peter? No, I'm clicking on the first article.
Give me two seconds about what is going on with transfer Santa Margherita quarterback Peter Costello.
Well, he wouldn't.
That's a good high school.
That's Ah, legit high school.
I played with a few guys from Santa Maria.
Coach left his coach left at Mission Viejo.
You a trip? He will train under soon to be second year Diablos Coach Chad Johnson, who continues to build his reputation as a quarterback guru.
Yeah, and for those you that didn't were around for last dream, that's like Mark Sanchez went to high school.
Um, believe objects.
Then I'm assuming might be Chad's dad and about the fact check me.
But he's like a quarterback guru.
That's that's a Q B hot, bad hotbed. So make sense.
It's a tough one, though.
I just want to kick it over you.
I'm the expert, but I almost don't want this decision.
Do you ever take You haven't You're ready to take you e got takes.
You know, I I got some takes.
I got some hot takes, Got some trail takes.
I'll tell you what.
If you want me to put a hot take on this, um, you know what I'll say is the play that I'm seeing.
Peter Castelli's film is just to the eye.
Significantly better, significantly more fast pays.
Um, Peter Peter has all of the athletic intangibles you can't really teach in terms of, you know, burst.
But for some reason, there's something about ties.
Quick throw in his poised.
You know, I think every time I watched ah shot of Thai again order, in my opinion, as an evaluator, much harder to evaluate the play of Thai.
Maybe I'm a little biased from here and speak on the Instagram Live, but I'm going with Ty.
I think he is a complete A composed, poised, confident guy with a lot of upside.
A lot of potential looks like a much fuller body frame.
I don't know if that's really a saying, but he just seems like a stout quarterback that can come in and you can do it a lot of different things that no, Peter has all the athleticism.
He made the comparisons to Tyler Huntley, but I don't know.
I like Thai Thompson.
Let's go with it.
I like Thai Thompson to, and I'll reward him for, Ah, hanging in there with what we think is a tough offense, a line or maybe just scheme wise.
They're not as advanced as Cost Deli. I like it.
I think we almost didn't take his highlight film with a grain of salt a little bit with just how he section it off when we kind of washed it in chunks and we're seeing kind of all of the rollout.
So me, I almost I felt on the whole of almost have a network against him.
But like you said, very good athlete.
I think speed wise Costello.
But I still think athletic wise in terms of making guys miss and having like, functional football athleticism, I don't necessarily think ties any any any, that much more of a drop off. And Costello.
I think there's too two different tune in areas in that.
But I like his quick release.
Tie Thompson and, uh, I almost want to see just another chunk of the highlights.
So let's keep him around and make it happen Absolutely well.
With that being said, I think we can agree that this is really, you know, the juggernaut Matt.
Matchup of the night Garrett.
No smile, Concord.
Who do you want to start with? First? Let's start with we start with column accord first last time when we we got him and he had the advantage there, So let's have him go second.
O'Nuts Meyer, the coach's son, the son of a coach, just son.
See if there's anything.
5 1 82 six one Apple.
What I thought he's taller.
His dad's like six four.
Let's see what we got.
I talked to one of my contexts off air, and he was saying that scared now Smiler was being recruited a decade ago.
It was like a 2011 recruit.
He'd be the top guy in the country.
But the way football is nowadays, with mobility having that much more of an importance that maybe that's why he's just slightly, uh down, but obviously still a huge recruit going to L s U What a little strange beauty here.
Can you see this? Well, yeah, I'm going with this.
Bombs away once again with the deep balls.
You can tell you that now, Control thrower.
Well, let's go ahead. Let's move it up a little bit.
Let's move it up for all the guys.
We've been moving it up.
So by seeing three throws, that one thing that jumps out right aways it feels like like I said, the most natural thrower in terms of just his general motion seems to be the smoothest of the three guys.
In my opinion, who would respect it out there? All right, So now we're getting away from the go balls and all the fancy plays.
This is good. I like this.
Oh, yeah. Now we're getting to the nitty gritty.
Now we're getting to The splitting hairs were on the Dallas Star in Texas delivering strikes.
I like his quick game approach.
He really gets the ball out there.
He's quick with his feet.
He's efficient with this feat.
He's not stagnant, either, which I think is also good.
L s u 8788 checked out the Thai livestream on I g solid.
Hey, but now we're moving on the L S U go Diving Go Tigers radio.
That's a beauty.
Getting the ball out quick.
Get in your playmaker's hands early.
They could make a guy miss turn a four yard arrow route into a 40 yard touchdown.
Yeah, only strike straight.
Make a defense. Pay their Sagon.
They're worried about that deep.
All the first minute of all the go balls reset, we saw.
Do you think about this? Throw right here.
Does that jump out to you, or is that in every day throughout? Give me one more time.
Bone, I think, uh, one of evaluators I grew up on was like Trent Dilfer.
He talks about back end velocity and that being a good measure for a quarterback with the ball.
But the ball gets the receiver.
Is it dying? Is it just kind of getting there or is it on a rope? And is it really popping into the pocket? And I think it's very clear that with us, Mayer, it's more the latter and some other guys.
When they're throwing these sideline balls, it might fade a little bit. I think it's a fair point.
This is, uh, this is accurate and this is also strong and has that back and Blosser you're looking for as a quarterback.
Yeah, that was That was exactly what I was going to say.
You can see when the when the receivers catching the ball.
He's gotta focus.
Lock it in because it's coming.
It's not just something to where you know, it's kind of dying in his hands.
He's putting it on him, Maxwell says.
What do you What do you guys think of Miles Brennan? If you've watched him before, Yeah, it was a camp counselor for him when he was in high school, actually, when I was my last year, U.
It feels like kind of similar.
I mean, he's been waiting in the wings a similar approach to kind of how I had in my college.
Hopefully, his career pens out a little bit better, but I think he's waiting in the wings, right? Learning the offense.
It feels like the Biebs air encouraging out there.
And what's interesting is a lot of times with schools like that, what a big dog leaves.
There's a huge quarterback competition.
What else? You? It's almost like he's the guy like he's the clear cut guy.
And so I think that's favorable.
It shows that there's a good, uh, good vibe coming out of L s U.
So I'm excited to see what he does.
I think there's no way you can keep that standard of Joe Borough.
And so there's naturally going to be a dip.
But I think with where l s u was at the past decade with quarterbacks before Joe Borough.
You Can you Can you? I mean, you're gonna put Brennan likely at number two, ideally, uh, in terms of what his production could be, um, under Steve Ensminger.
Yeah, Joe Bro's gonna be hard to replicate.
Uh, I'd like to say that we awoken the beast, and by we I mean, you see, f we played L s U in the Fiesta Bowl.
Joe Burrows first season at L s U.
And there's a big highlight of defensive lineman Big Joey Connors taking him out on it on an interception, which you hate to see that, but I think from that play on job, bro never lost a game.
So, uh, the use that that hit I do know I didn't know your first hit.
You were talking about that hit.
I remember Loud and clear and good for Joe.
It actually got out from it.
Yeah, I actually lick anyone the game.
More importantly, they were down, I think 14.
14 3 at the time.
You know, my nights are gonna bring it any time there in a bowl game.
They're getting hyped up.
But Joe Burrows silenced the crowd, came back from a hard hit s so we'll see what models Brennan's able to dio this year.
Toe replicate any sort of that success down in the value Yup.
Who? Great. Anticipation.
That throw is 100% getting picked off in division one football with that amount of air on it.
But hey, in high school, you through it early, gets away with it.
I did this a few times as well.
I like it back in the backfield.
I love this concept.
Read this all the time at, I guess, both offenses I was in.
Um, it's easy picking little roll out.
Tie Thompson vibes.
Right. Here we go.
Scotty. Let me know. I had to change the banner.
We've been putting the players names under the video.
Shot out Scotty, Attention to detail.
I love to see it.
I love to see it. We are on the Garrett Nussmeier.
Ls you commit for the folks at home? Those were tough throws.
Those last two you got rolling to your left is a right handed quarterback.
They're forcing him to set up and then drive a come back to the other side line.
This is good for me to see. Boom.
I want a little inverse there for you.
What? What about this? Specifically, we'll get through the roll out to the right one.
You spoke a little on that one, but this one right here wouldn't pressures you.
Yes, sometimes it's hard to get the ball out quick as a right handed quarterback going to your left.
And he's He's changing a little bit because I guess cheating.
Not the right word, but he's making a little easier by setting up.
But still, you got all your momentum going that way, and then it's you're just talking about.
It's a 16 yard come back to the sideline on time.
Uh, when you talk about just what routes were the hardest to throws, it's probably time posts.
So 10 yard, 12 yard outs, where you got to get the ball out before before your receiver cuts open and then comebacks just cause just the mere distance of it.
And then the timing timing element as well.
It's a long throw.
Long throw boom.
It's got all the arm strength you want.
That is not a question in the frame jumps out to me.
5 1 82 Yeah, what? I thought he was taller just by knowing his pops pops off for me back in the days he's a coach for the Cowboys, but, hey, six, while he's utilizing it.
And, uh, yeah, I like him, I think would have been itching to see if he was on the other side of the bracket.
A little touch allows the ball to float over the defender like that.
Who nice levels.
The balls got a linebacker there, and a little ref there, too, levels the ball over both of them under the safety who you playmaking ability for.
You talk about our merry go arm angles turning, and you throw it, have a different slot.
It's not always gonna be this slot.
Can you get side arm? Will you need to? Turning to who? Under center prove you can do it.
I like it Prove you can do it.
How much is how much of L issues offenses still ran from under center.
Not to put you on the spot too much, but not much at all.
Not much at all from, uh, from what I can remember when I like that, too.
We were talking about column accord last week, saying he throws the ball and he's got the swaggy.
He knows it's gonna work out. He doesn't need to celebrate.
This is my type right here.
He's getting height with his offense of lineman.
He's jumping up and down his fist pumping.
Oh, you like that? I like.
I like that runs right to the right.
Right tackle right there.
Yeah, love enough to lift up.
That's a big boy, too.
It's a big boy left his as a centre.
My only disappointment I have on myself over the over the over the years looking back is usually by the end of a drive, I'd be so tired.
I just run straight off the field.
He throws the ball and zone.
I wasn't on field goal, P 80.
I'm jogging off. I'm challenging.
Hold reserved, the energy.
You're getting your ass out of there.
I don't like your jobs a lot more, uh, a lot more gruesome than the Q B in the receiver.
That one of those are mingles right? Roland, you're right.
It's not always gonna be in a spot where you can get over the top.
He's always fluid.
That's another word that kind of sticks out.
He's never working against himself.
All of all of these throws feel natural.
of these movements feel natural.
That right there almost was a pick six, but he got away with it.
I'll make a play.
Take it to the house db.
Don't let him get away with this.
I don't know how he got away with that.
We just talked about, obviously, the decision making.
Not what you want to see at the division one level, but talk about just the ability to make that throw to flip his hips.
Honestly, the number one thing that shows me is confidence, right? The fact that he could tell he's in a big stadium, whatever this is, is this cowboy.
What? Wherever this agent tells a big game on the fact that he's able to spin out of pressure, have a D linemen in his face that have the internal confidence to say, Screw it.
I'm gonna rip this ball in there.
I respect it might not be the best decision, but I respect.
Yeah, he's got He's got enough mobility for me.
He's not the Tie Thompson.
He's not the cost l e trade by any means.
But you're not gonna put him in.
You're not gonna put in my category where it's like a true true pocket passer.
He's got some, got some legs to him.
He's got enough shoes, rip defender of his feet.
And that's one thing that you're kind of comparing the two guys.
We talked about some of a lot of the similar concepts, right, A lot of like, half rolls.
It felt like he was getting some of the same.
Half field reads.
When you turn on this tape, they're doing a lot right.
They got H backs.
They got to back in the backfield.
They're going empty.
They're going some play, actions him, roll out.
And so if I'm a betting man, when you talk about that translating toe early on in their college careers, all these guys are talented.
All these guys are smart.
They'll learn the ways.
But in terms of adapting early and adjusting to college offense early to me, having washed a few minutes of this film, that's where nest Marmite have a leg up.
Yeah, I would agree back.
Swell in the chat says.
What's the disadvantage of taking the ball under center? So many teams are moving away from it.
What do you felt on that next.
I think nowadays it's just easier to operate right.
Some of these guys were doing seven on seven.
As a quarterback, it's easier to get a shotgun snap, take a three step drop, then worry about getting a snap.
Which to me, I think it's way harder than people make it out to be, especially when you don't have hundreds and hundreds of reps to go back on.
Ah, but I just think it's easier.
It's easier to see the whole feel.
It's easier to get in a rhythm.
Um, and I think there's a reason that football has really gone that way the past decade.
Now, would you say on the on the flip side of that, what would you say? The advantages of being under center? And why do pro teams still do it? Yeah, it's easier to establish a run game.
So when you talk about the threat of always having a downhill run attack coming at you as a defensive coordinator, it's a whole another animal Teoh to prepare for, because you have to be disciplined and along those same lines, play action is such a big part of that.
The pro style game is a big part of offenses that at that level, because you don't have the luxury of kind of displaying in space and speed because of the NFL level, everyone's fast, so you have to do elements of kind of decoy and disguise.
Ah, lot play action.
And so it's way easier to establish a true play action game and faking linebackers and making it tough on linebackers and safety with being under center and establishing that run game.
I think Port Maxwell.
What's contributing to it is, uh, Max.
I talked about the first review of athletes.
Was the dead fish nap? I think that's totally changed the game when the invention of the dead fish nap the flesh ball snap name.
But I mean, it was easy as a pitching catch.
You don't have to worry about pulling anything.
I think people are creating newer, newer ways for an offense to easily be operated out of the gun skylight, high school out.
And so Manish, my pride and joy.
We have been doing that since 2000 for people are catching up now, though, because the Elon musk of Ah of High School football.
Sweet. I got a good grass for Ness. Mayer.
What? Uh, McCord's got cooking.
Thank great. I agree.
Overall, though, I got a got to say the more I watch Garrett now smarter, the more I like when he puts on film.
Back to column accord.
Ohio State commit, Ah, bigger guy.
Tell me what you liked about Kyle from From the first time we watched all the things with nuts.
My feel like they were similar camp.
Right? Smooth, pure pocket guys.
The balls kind of jumping off their ad.
You saw a lot out of their tape.
They're doing some different things.
A lot of pure progressions, like kind of a higher level of offense you're watching, but just as pure of a throw.
Or I think of this group in terms of arm strength, how smooth it is and just I don't care how well you know football.
When you turn on tape, you could tell a football pops up a guy's hand in a matter of two or three reps.
And I think column accord definitely set the tone with this group.
In terms of that category.
I'm excited to dig in a little further.
Especially I know again.
Last time we watched Kyle, it was he was the first player that we evaluated to seeing him, even after watching a guy like Garrett Nussmeier.
I'm curious to see if will be just as while just as excited, seeing them through the football.
So we're hopping in at the at the two minute mark here, and we will see what kind of record puts on film for the second half of his highlights.
Like you alluded to right away, the size jumps out.
He's by far away from my angle, but the biggest of these guys? Yeah, that's a That's a big leak throw you talk about.
He's on the left hash, throwing a whole shot to the right sideline.
No flinch, not even harder.
It's coming off his wrist.
That's an impressive big league throw right there.
And I think, Yeah, I think this He is up in Philadelphia P A.
So he's the Northeast guy like it drives it in there on time, finds the window phone.
We're seeing so many boundary rollouts and all these guys is clips.
Grass field got like it.
Yeah, that's accurate.
I love that is an evaluator.
As soon as I see this type of field, the intent, it's go up.
What competition of my seeing, Uh, have you checked out Caleb Williams? He's ranked number one quarterback in 2021.
Maxwell, you're gonna have to stick around.
This isn't gonna be the first.
It's not gonna be the last time that we're breaking down quarterbacks like this so might just have to stay tuned on that one.
But when you see a grass field like this, you know, you gotta wonder who's taking care of it.
Can we get that? Can we get the local golf course guy out here? Can we get some? Get some nice.
It is going on the field for these guys.
I don't want to see a turned ankle.
I never put him to grass field in high school.
Was not they, uh, not a Washington thing, Not a Washington thing.
Your play there.
That red turf not played there.
I have put on that side of the state, though, and put in a snow game.
They're actually weight in the playoffs.
I was nearly Yep, there we can see the touch to.
We've seen that in a lot of plays.
It's got that nice pocket presence.
He's able to layer the ball like that angle.
That's just a nisi flick.
It's taking his eyes.
The left know when he's coming back to the right all the time, his receivers wide open.
But he makes it easy on him.
We get the left knee brace. Swag.
Beautiful thrown ball.
Quick release for a big guy, which is not always a given.
Compact. It's ball out.
Just look big out there.
Does the these past five quips made it look easy? Looks smooth.
He always knows where he's going now, seen so much pocket.
It's kind of the opposite.
A lot of these guys not seen so much pocket. I want to see him.
Maybe escape on one.
But the pocket passer means almost appreciate in this film as well.
Is this the? This is the exact s capability you're talking about in, uh, when I asked you about ties, right, guys hoping his hips and a little short check down to get you out of trouble.
To be honest on my screen, he gets barely cut off.
So I'm gonna trust you on that one.
Oh, you can't see that Unless some, uh, some I must be missing something.
There's a lot of a lot of gray.
Yeah, I can't see that.
What? Open? Getting the ball, OK, Tight, tight race.
We think we think first at a first pass, we watch a couple sop****res t get, you know, more well rounded.
Feel on it, or we can just go into decision making up to you.
Let's go back to the 1 30 mark in record like that.
Give me Give me 30 seconds.
30 seconds A clip Maker break speed.
Round 1 30 Oh, this is the big league throw right there.
That's a big league ball.
Big league ball right here.
What about this? Makes us a big league ball, Does a good job with his eyes knowing that that safety that Middlefield safety is gonna be the one that might dictate or getting getting away this throw, He knows where he's going all the way or all the time he throws is this post route up the field glasses receiver to keep going with mo mentum, and this is accurate 40 45 yards on a strike.
Who? Indies Bone Touchdown.
Rutgers Go! Scarlet Knights.
Scarlet Knights drives it in there.
We have a touch in the back into the highlight film.
He's really, really driving.
Like third for every fit in there, I I thought I saw season up.
He sees enough with McCord.
Trust in my God.
Staying with trust in the guts of Kyle McCord overtakes Garrett nuts Meyer and puts himself in the files with Thai Thompson.
I got to be completely honest.
I have been a bill.
What do you you going the other way? Oh, it's gonna be an uphill battle for Ty Thompson.
I think if you're going with column accord your it's your call Kinda.
McCord is the move.
You the you're the quarterback of value.
I'll tell you what.
Every time I saw gear not smile, I was extremely impressed.
I think he's a bit smaller quarterback, a little undersized in terms of height, weight, but in terms of him throwing the ball natural throw of the football, his ability to really drive it.
Well, I thought was impressive, but I would agree.
Kyle McCord was extremely impressive every time he turned on his tape.
Big stout, tallest guy in the field made all the throws so much touch, so much natural ability.
I don't think you could go wrong with that decision.
No, I'm with you.
Wherever you want to say is the on the completely honest thing.
The bracket had a lined up more on an exceeding fashion scene.
Meyer McCord in the finals Could have been, uh, could've been neck and neck.
But a time Thompson will be fun because two different styles, right? That's Meyer Makor Worm or the pocket guys.
Now tie has the dual element.
Um, but no, I think McCord McCord is legit, not Smyers as well.
You can tell why both those guys are going big time schools, but little East Coast Midwest for the final action.
I like that little East Coast West coast will set will set it up in for the chat for the peeps at home.
This is one bracket.
There are not only eight quarterbacks This was just the first sample size.
We took a crack at it.
We really like the foundation at this.
Sets for the ability to put guys head to head.
Really? And so who knows? Maxwell, You pointed out Caleb Williams.
I know there's a whole slew of guys that we could go and continue to evaluate on, so stay tuned.
But for this first bracket, the championship round, we got Kyle McCord, Ohio State.
Commit versus Tie Thompson, Oregon Ducks commit.
Should be a fun one.
We're gonna have a little different.
Set it for you next time.
Next time we go live.
I appreciate you joining us, and that's Ah, that's all we got here.
Actually, anything to sign off next week's format will be.
Or next time we come on, this format will be kind of throw for throw.
I guess we'll see exactly how it plays out, but we're thinking right now, maybe a McCord goes one throw.
Thompson does the same throw what to trust the back end guys, but it could be fun to check it out new format and try to mix up a little bit mixing it up.
Always mixing it up, keeping it fresh, keeping the dialogue going.
Appreciate you joining us, and we will see you next.
