Cowan's decision making and mobility are superior to Olson's. I've thought that he was the better option the last 2 years.
It will be interesting to see how Forcier and Craft fit in.
Norm Chow dislikes Mormon Quarterbacks and has outright said so, because they leave for missions.
He was OC at BYU for twenty years and consistently said that going on a Mormon mission hindered their ability to grow as a quarterback so much so that it made them incapable of playing the position at a high level required to compete at D-I upon return.
Ben Olson went on a Mormon mission, and his strengths are throwing the long ball. The Bruins haven't really excelled at that since Toledo was the coach - not ironically, the coach that recruited him. He definitely wasn't Karl Dorrell type of player, he doesn't have the quickness to keep the small ball short pass offensive scheme that he ran. I'm guessing it's the same with Neuheisel. I believe he's very much so Kerry Collins in every sense.
Minus the undefeated season and Rose Bowl win.Quote:
