Connor Noland
« on: January 14, 2019, 02:23:41 pm »

Since Ben Hicks announced hes coming to Fayetteville I wonder if this will cause Noland to focus more on baseball rather than football. I would think it does since Hicks will almost assuredly be the starter next year and KJ waiting in wings one would think he has brighter future on the mound instead of under center.

Noland will not miss any Spring Ball football-wise according to DVH. Noland may appear as a reliever in mid-week and early non-conference games. That's about it I'd assume.

agreed.  I'd put his +/- at 10 innings pitched for the year.

This season I would agree that we wont see much of him. I guess I was looking more towards next year and the year after if he was to get beat out by KJ.

Noland would have to be really impressive before the coaches start limiting his time in the other sport.
Myself, I'd love to see him become the strike throwing machine that shuts down sec teams on every Sunday game.  Not expecting that from a frosh, but ya never know..................

Too early to tell how it will play out. He was a 4 star QB coming out of HS and damn good/well rated baseball player as well. I think there are expectations in both sports that he can develop into a good player.  I don't think he will contribute that much this year, while he still focuses on spring ball, but who is to say.

I think you are guilty along with others of the KJ hype, and just didn't see enough out of Connor as a True FR QB to assume that he won't be a starting QB here.  I on the other hand am going to assume Connor will be playing college football until a younger QB beats him out on the depth chart. That may be KJ next year, maybe in two years, but starting a game & getting good reps as a true FR on the football field is good experience. Hicks likely beats him out next season, but who knows if Hicks gets hurt and he sets the world on fire after what will happen with baseball. Its just way too early to tell.

My guess is that there will be some opportunities early due to everyone being on low pitch counts.  He will have a small window to impress.  He was a strike throwing machine in high school, but the SEC zone is usually a lot smaller.

His control is what will give him a chance to pitch this year. DVH work tolerate pitchers that don’t throw strikes

Spring practice would be considered suiting up so I guess he means no to Spring practice.

With as good as he was in highschool focusing on 2 sports one has to wonder what his ceiling could be if he was to solely focus on baseball. Personally I think the ceiling could be pretty high with a chance to work with Hobbs for a season and an off season but nothing has been said yet so dont wanna get the hopes up on it to much.

So, is he giving up the full scholly for a partial one? I don't know anything about his family, but I would think the full ride would hard to give up.

That being said, he did fax his LOI from Italy, so maybe it is not a big deal.

His Granddad can afford to pay for his college.  I think he is a diamond miner or something like that.

No. Things can change and sources can be wrong. It's a dumb proposition to ask. My track record is pretty good though and don't just throw random stuff out unless i believe it's true. Sure, things can change but it's not believed he will play next fall. If you have info to the contrary, send me a pm and I'll try to verify.

I think he'll stay with the football just enough so that he can stay on full scholarship instead of risking getting a partial scholly with baseball.

I guess it's possible the coaches plan to lay the ultimatum down (no more football) and think Connor will agree or they think they can convince Connor to give up football voluntarily.  If so, they have only revealed this to "sources" and not to the player himself yet.

I dont think it would be hard to convince him to give it up. His playing time is going to go way down unless Hicks gets hurt plus you know the coaches will get KJ in his 4 games and from what we saw hes not exactly Kyler Murray or Jamisis Winston. I'm not trying to knock the kid I think he could turn out to be great at both or not so great at both but I think his future would be brighter in baseball.

He had one of our two wins in the only game he played the whole time as a true freshman.  He will still be a redshirt freshman next year.  He loves football.  Kyler Murray didn't exactly light it up as a freshman at A&M either.  If he was that in love with baseball, we would have at least explored the MLB draft coming out of high school.

Your right about Kyler and that Connor did lead us to one of our 2 wins. I also think it has been well stated how much he loves football. I just think with the recent additions of Hicks and KJ, yes I know we havent seen KJ in a Hog uniform that's a different topic, I just think his future may be brighter on the diamond instead. I also want to say I have no sources on anything I'm just trying to pass the next 29 days with good conversation.

The spring game is the same weekend the baseball team travels to Auburn.  I could see Noland missing the spring game, but I don't think it has any bearing as to his place on the depth chart of the football team. 

Connor has been at the early morning football workouts for those wondering.
