  1. Oh boy! Can you imagine how bad Tre Roberson is going to feel if he does not win the starting QB job at Illinois State? One would think that he would not have transferred to a lower division school (and lower quality school) unless he was very confident that he’d be the starter. Sounds like he’s in a highly competitive situation, again.

  2. Is the Live Chat transcript going to be posted? It’s already been removed from the Herald Times website…thanks!

  3. A big reason Roberson improved as a QB and played well; he was in a system that showed his abilities and was coached accordingly. He did not do himself a favor by transferring. Nor did he do a favor to IU unless he was going to be a dissatisfied cancer to the team.
