Manke and Freund are UND's all-time leaders in completion percentage, and Freund is the only QB in UND history to be at 70% in a season. Manke had a 68.7% completion rate in 2006, which is incredible.
2 QBs in all of FCS threw for 70% last season. 2 QBs in all of FBS threw for 70% last season. 2 QBs in the NFL threw for 70% last season.
Those are statistical anomalies.
Easton Stick threw at 58% last season. The #2 overall draft pick Carson Wentz threw at 62% his senior season. Brock Jensen threw at 66% his senior season. Not sure who compared Brock Jensen to Keaton Studsrud like you stated or where that came from. Gage Gubrud passed for 66% last season.
Keaton Studsrud isnt ANY of those guys. We need Keaton to be Keaton. He's not going to complete 70% in this offense and system. He is who he is.
Nobody is making any excuses for Studsrud because of the O-line or receivers.
My original point in my post was that he needs to improve his completion percentage, which I stated.
When Studsrud is healthy, he is the unquestioned leader and catalyst of the team. We all agree that without him UND is not the same. Yes, Studsrud's play will have a huge bearing on the success of the team.
If he throws for 65% this season, we are laughing.
