    This could be huge for us. I mean, best stretch of Wake football ever huge for us.
    We're going to be good again.

    Thank you. There's no doubt in my mind Sam is going to work his ass off and eventually start at Wake whether it be next Fall or 2021.

    By golly, PhDeac crystallizes the whole point perfectly. It's not complicated. And if we've got a guy in the second position who cannot live with that then so be it. He's got options, not great ones, but options. Besides, Newman could get hurt again, unfortunately. Then in comes Hartman. The greatest thing to ever happen in Hartman's football career (and riskiest) was when as a Freshman Hartman played against ND, Clemson and FSU. What dreams realized?!! He's a smart guy. I suspect Hartman will stand behind Newman if asked.

    This point is perfectly applicable to Newman whose clock is ticking much more loudly than Hartman's. Newman has much more pressure to depart if he takes a back seat to Hartman simply to wait for Hartman to become injured again. But even then I'm not convinced Newman leaves, but much more likely in his case.

    Got to say how weird it is to read all of this and think about our future, given that I was so looking forward to the Kendall Hinton era. Then everything changed. Itís worked out for us, and I hope it works out for Hinton, but it is not the Wake football I thought I was going to be watching this year and next.

    He doesn't strike me as a quitter or a guy who is afraid of competition.

    I donít see either of our QBís to be the transfer type. Our offense needs at least 2 QBís anyway.

    Agreed. I am excited about Newman/Hartman though.

    Hartman vs Tulane was a truly remarkable 1st game. Yet Newman vs NCState was perhaps the gutsiest 1st start ever for WF. Can't recall Skinner's 1st start.

    It was the Duke game that ended with the Chip Vaughn blocked FG. Skinner played well.

    That was a home game, right? Newman was playing on the road and State was ranked. I don't believe that Duke was. But it both were must wins.

    Yeah. Home vs a bad Duke team.

    Skinner only had two games in his first three years with a passer rating higher than Newman vs State. He threw 8 and 11 passes in those games.

    Skinnerís only road game with a passer rating that high was his last game ever at Duke.

    That's surprising, but underscores how remarkable Newman's game was.

    I remember thinking that we should have been down 28 points at the half during that Duke game. So I guess you could say they were a bad team but they completely outplayed us.
