if I remember, it was more that nesbitt was better at reading the play than tevin. Now, maybe the read was that baybay is always open, I don't know, but that's just how I remember.

I always felt that while Washington has shown to be better from a mechanics standpoint, it feels like he messes up more. I mean, there was the Thomas effect but Hill wasn't bad either. Maybe Thomas was that much better than Hill than Washington is better than Nesbitt.

Your memory is gauzy, like watching Cybil Shepherd close-ups in Moonlighting.

He had a strong arm, but he screwed up quite a bit, way more than Tevin. He threw to D.T. Even when he was covered and he just brought many of them down. He did not need to be open, just single covered.

Hill could not fight for possession in those situations most of the time. He was not as strong on the jump balls although he brought in a few.

Nesbitt > Tevin, imo, in everything but top end speed. Nesbitt was a better passer. He had a much stronger arm and could lead the team down the field with passing when it was needed. He could complete a pass on 3rd and long. Tevin is a pretty decent passer when we have the element of surprise, but doesn't have the tools to be a good passer when it's one-dimensional. I will say that Tevin has closed that gap a lot with his hard work. His accuracy has improved a LOT and has made him a much better QB. He also has good ball security and good control of the reads.

100% confident with JN in any situation.
100% nervous anytime TW has the ball.

It's easy to answer the question of Nesbitt vs TW. Just ask yourself if we were playing tomorrow vs VT who would you want under center. That's what I thought.

Easy, Tevin. Nesbitt hasn't practiced triple option in a while.

Tevin will not beat UGA this year. Vad has a better chance and so does Justin Thomas. Our 2008 team (who had ZERO experience running our offense at the beginning of the season and beat UGA) says hi.
He was also a terrible route runner and routinely dropped wide open home runs. That's not on Tevin. If it was as simple as just finding fast WRs we'd shift our track team to football.

What about the 2009 team, that had every playmaker from the 2008 team and faced a uga team that lost both of its playmakers from the year before? How did the playmakers do in that game?
