Is Logan Thomas the most overrated player in college FB?


Posted: Aug 21, 2012, 2:25 PM
 

what is with this guy? I haven't seen him doing anything. Just because he looks like Cam Newton doesn't mean he can play like him.

He's up there...

EJ Manuel takes the cake, though... Although, with that said, a lot of people are questioning if he can win them a title.

Not so sure about that

I've heard Logan Thomas is "the next Cam Newton."

But, yes, EJ is up there as well.

He is the most overrated player and FSU is the most overrated team in all the land!!

Make it idjit proof and someone will make a better idjit.


I'd say EJ Manuel is the top-rated overrated player in CFB.***

LT has all the natural ability needed to become a great QB.

He lacks experience. Someday, the little light is going to come on in his head and he's going to be a handful for a D to deal with.

All that being said, I'm not sure it will happen during his college football stay.

difference is...Tebow has actually accomplished things and is still winning games....not sure how you can say Tebow is over rated....Just because you don't like him doesn't mean he is.

I dunno, he threw for 3013/19/9 and ran for 469/11 while leading VT to an 11-3 record in his first season as a starter. 3482 total yards and 30 TDs isn't too shabby for a r-So, especially considering that we're not known for putting up gaudy offensive numbers.

He IS getting a lot of love from the media types, but that's what they do. And when you factor in his potential, it's not _that_ much of a stretch, IMO.

He put those numbers up against less then impressive teams


Posted: Aug 21, 2012, 4:06 PM
 

Boyd put up better number against better teams with great D such as UNC, VT, and FSU. The fact that our defense which was one of the worst all time at Clemson completely shut him down is not a very confidence inspiring thing

In conference play and the bowl game (10 games total), he passed for 225yds, 1.5 TDs, 0.6 INTs, and rushed for 34yds rushing and 1 TD, per game. Here's how he compared to Boyd in games against common opponents:

Wake:
LT: 17-32-280, 2TDs, 0INT, 11-30 rushing, 2TDs
TB: 27-43-343, 2TDs, 2INT, 11-27 rushing, 0TDs

GT:
LT: 7-13-209, 3TDs, 0INT, 18-70 rushing, 2TDs
TB: 23-40-295, 1TD, 2INT, 8-(-1) rushing, 0TDs

UNC:
LT: 19-32-195, 2TDs, 0INT, 13-32 rushing, 1TD
TB: 27-46-367, 5TDs, 0INT, 11-8 rushing, 1TD

BC:
LT: 22-36-268, 1TD, 0INT, 16-60 rushing, 1TD
TB: 16-26-283, 1TD, 0INT, 6-37 rushing, 1TD

In those four games, TB had 40 more attempts, 336 more yards, 1 more TD, and 4 more INTs, while LT had 22 more rushing attempts for 121 more yards and 4 more TDs.

Admittedly he played poorly against Clemson, but he was hardly alone in that regard... you guys made our entire team look bad in both games.

For the record, the average passing defense ranking of VT's 13 D1A opponents last year was 56, while Clemson's opponents' average position was 51. Not as different as I would have guessed given that we didn't play FSU or USCe.

They only lost one regular season game last year


Posted: Aug 21, 2012, 4:01 PM
 

I can understand the hype.

link

That's because they only played 1 good regualr season team


Posted: Aug 21, 2012, 4:06 PM
 

and that was Clemson. Beating a crap schedule doesn't mean you're a great team, look at SC last year.

No - LT is not that over-rated IMO. His OC just doesn't know chit. They are the ONLY team that couldn't figure how to use their QB to beat us. EVERY team we played knew how to do that. We couldn't stop a running QB if we used grappling hooks. Hopefully that will change this year (PLEASE). But VT could have beaten us if they used LT to run against us. I can't believe Beamer hasn't fired their OC. He's not that good IMO.

LT will be fine. E J Manuel - not so fine. Overrated IMO. What has he done? And Jimbo Fisher is overrated too. I actually think they could beat us with a decent coach. With Jimbo - we OWN THEIR ####!!
