No. The QB pairing is a curious mix:
#10 Ta'Amu Jordan (6-2 | 221 lbs). from U. of Mississippi (Ole' Miss)
#4 Nick Fitzgerald (6-5 | 227 lbs.) from Mississippi State
The two started against each other twice in their annual Egg Bowl.
In 2017, Fitzgerald went down with a leg injury in the first quarter, and Jordan hit for two long TB passes in the second half to spark a 31-28 upset of 16th ranked MS State.
In 2018, Fitzgerald and crew struck back for a 35-3 trouncing of Ole' Miss.
In 2018, Fitzgerald passed for 1767 yards (51% completion) for 16 TD and 9 Ints. Also rushed for 1121 yards and 13 TD, 5.1 YPC average.
In 2018, Jordan passed for 3918 yards (62% completions) for 19 TD and 8 Int. / Also rushed for 342 yards and 6 TD, a 2.9 YPC average.
This year Jordan has been a better rusher than in college, and is a solid overall QB. Fitzgerald comes in on short yardage, either pounding it ahead or flipping a play-action from the Wildcat.
Curiously, the BattleHawks offense reminds me of an SEC team: Power running and zone reads, mixed with play-action and screen passes.
In case you're wondering... I'm a Mizzou Tiger fan!
I think one of the things that the LPGA struggles with, that the PGA doesn't have to be concerned with just came up the other day. I saw on some golf blog someplace that Ai Miyazato was going to be a coach on the Japanese Olympic Team. (Assuming the Olympics happens... but that's another thread.)
Anyhoo… My wife and I are like "Hey, we remember Ai!" … "We met her way back when she was either the World's Number one or close to it." It was way back in 2010. Both of us wondered what she's been up to. Well, as it turns out she left the sport to go make babies and build a family for her and her husband.
One thing the PGA doesn't have to deal with still young players leaving the sport to have babies. I'm not saying that men won't become distracted while they start to build a family. But distracted is one thing. The physical ability to play golf is much more literally changed for a woman when she's having babies.
I very literally played golf the day my son was born. My wife, on the other hand, was in no condition to do so.
