Also lest we forget that it was not Kyler who paired himself with Kliff. He already had rejected playing for him at college

Waaay too much is put into this. He didn't reject Kliff. He rejected Texas Tech along with about 15 other far larger programs to go to A&M where his Dad was the college QB. He grew up an A&M fan.

And then rejected Kliff, errrrrr Texas Tech a 2nd time when he transferred to Oklahoma.

There's plenty of video with Kliff talking about finally getting a chance to work with Kyler, when he was drafted.

The first time round he rejected Clemson, Auburn, OU, Texas, Oregon, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Florida and a bunch of other programs better than TTU and probably turned them all down again when he transfered. I guess it was the coaches.

Who says it was? Either way you can't say he "rejected Kliff" without saying he rejected half the coaches in D1 football.

The only thing that happened here was he went to A&M because of his Dad. Couldn't start and Lincoln Riley said "Come here and you can start when Baker goes".

Let's leave it at this...If Kyler thought Kliff was his best option in college, he would have played for Texas Tech. It's always about the coaches. You think 90% of the players for Jackson State really wanted to be at JState, without coach Prime? Now at Colorado...

You did. You said he can’t have rejected Kliff without having the coaches of the other programmes. I said he rejected Kliff, as Kliff stated he tried hard to recruit Kyler but couldn’t get him.

Anyway let’s agree to disagree. @BritCard where are you based in the UK anyway?

I believe that he once mentioned Bury St Edmunds.

Like I said, he is at a cross roads. Can’t “blame” KK anymore
Not exactly, the tutelage of someone can have major carryover effects, and my fear is that Kliff is not the only one who we have to worry about but his father who is still in tow past being a parent... who has had more input on how he plays QB but his ole man lacking on how to play the position as a pro

This is what I was thinking. Reich had Brisset, Wentz, Rivers, Ryan, Foles and Ehlinger after Luck retired and still had a winning record.
Hi, my name is Ron Jamesonsonson, and I am the advocate for the Devil, and remember Vince Young got kicked out of the league with a winning record too :devil:

The amateur psychologists on this board are something else.

Good coaches manage the egos (and there are always dozens of them
on a 53 man roster) of their players with whatever that particular player responds to best. Sometimes it’s gentle reassurance, sometimes it’s with an iron fist.
Well, if his attitude and approach to the game is fine, then he just sucks. That means he's completely regressed and will never be the QB we need him to be. Pardon us if we choose to believe he needs an attitude adjustment and have a bit of hope that he can get right.

A lot of people have no interest in going to a mediocre college like Texas Tech.
