I admire your patience and tact in dealing with merle. Sometimes he gets on my nerves too. Sorry, merle. I love a good exchange of thoughts but, remember - sarcasm is a cheap form of wit, merle.

Nice to have one classy MU fan posting here.

I'm not very familiar with Poorman, but he sounds like a really solid player. Clearly he is an impressive passer, but how mobile is he? The ability to run is always valuable in UMHB's offense.

There are some clips here that should answer your questions.
Thanks! He looks like a stud. Can't wait to see him on the field for the Crusaders.

Poorman is not going to wow you with his runs like your recent UMHB QB's, but he can be an effective runner.  I guess I'd say you don't need to game plan for containing him running, but he can pop you for 10 yards on a read option so you better not fall asleep either.  What you guys will appreciate most is his accuracy and decision making with the ball.  IMO those are his biggest strengths.  He's a very smart kid and it shows on the field.

Good observation Dr. Yeah I think that is known, but it is the decision making you had mentioned I believe is the look the Cru are seeking. If the commits are correct we have a few standout QB's coming in 2018 but none are tested and at this rate it is better to know how a QB thinks and rolls through the progression than hope that they develop it over a summer on their own. Plus, it sounds like UMHB is a great fit to Poormans desire for a Christo-centric education. Sometimes things just work themselves out that way.
But let's be clear, UMUs strength (at least I have come to believe) is in it leadership - and at this stage it looks like it is still going to be there at UMU so while one piece of talent has moved on, the course for that program is still very clear.

Carl was dynamic athletically. He had a great ability to run, and he had a great arm, but, there were times when he could not throw accurately and put the ball where the receivers needed it. That was something we saw all year long. It was also believed that he could not handle the blitz which was seen against St. Thomas, Brockport, and UMU. I thought that Carl could have been good, really good, but I think the place that he struggled the most was in the decision making. Sometimes he ran when he should have thrown and thrown when he should have run.

From looking at Luke's history, his interview, and so forth, I believe he has the total package and will do a great job.

Reposting from the SAA board. Hendrix finalized schedule has been released with a trip to TLU finalized in a rematch of last year's home win for the Warriors.

Seems like a good deal for both teams, solid D3 game but does come with I assume a pretty long bus trip for the Warriors.

There will always be tough traveling with the SAA schedule for Hendrix. The TLU trip is timed up so that they and Austin college are the long road games and Trinity/Berry/Centre/Sewanee are forced to take the long trip to Conway. Unfortunately all four of those games will be on the road for Hendrix in 2019 if scheduling remains the same.

I felt the play-calling for Mount Union to start the game was tremendous... they were careful to not put him in situations where FSU knew they had to pass. 

It was brilliant and Poorman was brilliant as he settled into the game.  Then they just completely unleashed him.

I'm excited to see him play for UMHB.  This is a big-time QB - who still has room to grow, which is the scary part for UMHB opponents.

I'm scratching my head here...what could bring this kind kind punishment for a first violation in 20 years of the program? My hat off to Coach Fred, he has accepted sole ownership of the infractions. Coach Fred is by far one of the few coaches that stands head and shoulders above all the other coaches!
