He needs to start a poll on Hogville and let us decide what's best for him. 

Damn right. 60% of the time, Hogville knows what’s best every time.

Didn’t realize what I posted was confusing.  Comprehension not your friend I see.  If you actually read the thread you will see where someone mentions baseball only gives a little over 11 scholarships to split between the team.  Hence my comment...

I was going to blame it on Title IX but after a little research evidently mens baseball gets 11.7 scholarships while women's softball gets 12 so that's pretty much a wash.  I was thinking they got a lot more but guess not.  Women's BB get 15 while the men get 13.

Noland is simply tearing it up right now in preseason scrimmages. Friday he struck out Casey Martin and Heston Kjerstad back to back. He's stuck out Goodheart. Van Horn says a lot of freshmen come in with good stuff but have control issues. Noland has shown no control problems at all. Plus, Van Horn says he's been solid defensively. Fields the ball with no problems. Manages base runners.

However, a pro scout I talked to said the moment of truth will come after Connor starts spring football. He said it's very common for QB/pitchers to experience a drop in velocity when they start back throwing a football. 


Would certainly hate to see football set back his baseball development.

In our case, it would make sense to have more, because we have such a high turnout for BB and it makes money.  For a lot of schools...it's a big loss, so there's nothing there to justify more scholarships.  We see baseball from a tainted view, but there are only a handful of baseball programs in the country that have the fan following and attendance we do. 

I'm not saying it's right...but I doubt we see a change anytime soon.

I'm with you.  Maybe something clicks, and he just takes a quantum leap forward in CCM's system, and we see him as a huge difference maker at QB, with obvious NFL talent.  If that happens, and he chooses football, then it's hard to blame him, because of the difference in guaranteed money up front, and how long and arduous of a task it is to actually toe the mound as a pitcher in the bigs.  So many chances for blown elbows, knees...etc., and having setbacks just working up through the minors.

Based on what I've seen with my own eyes and what coaches have told me it's not even close between football and baseball as far as potential is concerned. He's a long shot to play in the NFL but he's definitely got major league baseball potential.

Selfish me wouldn't mind seeing him give up football.

There's not much (pro sport wise) I've enjoyed more over the last few years than watching the success of Benintendi and Keuchel.

With some early success on the baseball field, he may come to that conclusion as well.  If he is as good as early indications are, I also would enjoy seeing him on the diamond.

Give K.J. Jefferson or John Stephens Jones their shot at early playing time as quarterback behind Ben Hicks.

Someone definitely intimated as much.

That said, all of that was before it started to look like he might have a legit shot at weekend rotation as a true freshman.

Not doubting that, but two weeks ago he wasn't slated by Van Horn to start a baseball game this weekend.

That's what everyone I've talked with has said as well.  That's why I suggested that things would have to take a dramatic turn with football for him to have anywhere near NFL caliber talent. 

Hearing that he's striking out our best hitters from last season, at this stage of his baseball career, really tells me all I need to know.  He didn't grace the football field and show anywhere near that level of success.

Let’s just say he doesn’t make his decisions by listening to hogville conjecturing.  He started one football game and is 1-0.  It’s way too early to write him off on the football field, especially with what was around him this year.  He isn’t worried about the NFL or MLB at this point.  Look at it this way, does the MLB draft based on potential?  Obviously yes.  Was Connor an elite pitching talent at this time last year?  Yes.  Then why did he publically tell MLB teams not to bother drafting him?  One reason—he loves football.

He has a 3 year window to have a time of his life and decide.  I’m jealous.

Man do we have a politician for a coach. This is the wrong decision for our football team which is the sport footing the bill for Mr Nolands education. I probably wouldn't think anything of it if we had an established QB for next season, but spring game is more practice time for a kid that hopefully is pushing for playing time.

It's a bold strategy for Chad. We'll see if it pays off.

Apart from being overly publicized, the spring game is not much different than the multiple other scrimmages they hold throughout spring ball.

Missing one little exhibition won't make or break Noland or this team.

Completely agree.  We've had multiple instances where players were healthy, coming off injury, and they were held out just to give them more time to strengthen everything further.  Is it really any different in the grand scheme of things?

Connor has been at early morning football workouts, putting in his time.  The football players notice this, and know he's doing double duty.  The baseball players also notice this and are very aware that Noland's football scholarship status means their 11.7 scholarship money gets spread out more. 

The kid is a winner, and Morris and Van Horn should be applauded, not criticized over the matter.  He loves both sports, and is capable of playing both.  Good for everybody.

As he should.  What do you think that Offensive meeting will be like come spring after he goes out an throws a 7 or 8 inning shutout against an Auburn or LSU to steal a series?  Or a regional game?  Guy will have the ability to earn him some clout in that room and at QB, that is HUGE

That’s great to hear.  This will not only payoff for Connor and the baseball team, but other recruits have to like hearing/seeing this kind of flexibility from the football coach.  There have been many successful multi-sport athletes, and having a publicly flexible football coach can only increase a recruit’s interest.

^^^^^This exactly! How many SEC baseball teams are getting a weekend starter for free, no scholly$$$ required ? If he wants to continue his FB career that's his business, whether he is the starting QB or not shouldn't affect anything whatsoever, pretty sure we have always carried a few QB's on scholarship. It's amazing how many people think they know what's best for these kids, without actually knowing them, or really even knowing much about them.
