Chance Stewart

Posted: 1/31/2013 5:32 PM

Chance Stewart 


According to an ESPN article he has yet to be contacted by the new staff and he is unsure of his status with Wisconsin. This doesn't sound good.

Andersen can talk all he wants about running the same offense that we ran last year but it's clear that he prefers dual threat qb's to pure drop back passers. I wouldn't be surprised if he decided to go in a different direction. It would be a shame but there's plenty of time for both parties to move on.

RE: Chance Stewart 


I wonder if that is accurate or current. I was sure I read somewhere that he visited with them.

RE: Chance Stewart 


I know Coach Andersen is looking to move to an offense more suited for a dual threat quarterback but it's hard for someone like myself to not see Chance Stewart as a bird in the hand. This is a 4 star caliber quarterback that's committed to our university and is prime for the offense that we are almost certainly going to run for the foreseeable future given the quarterbacks on the current roster. There's always a possibility that we can land a big time dual threat guy in 2014 but, having followed UW recruiting for many years, there's a very strong possibility that we can't.

Edit: Doesn't this seem diametrically opposed to everything we've seen so far from the head coach who stayed up all night to call every player on his roster?

I don't like this at all. I also wonder is this driven by Anderson or Ludwig? I would assume Anderson.

The bumpy ride continues.

On Wisconsin!

We are recruiting Tanner...no problem...but not as the cost of Chance or replacement for him.

RE: Chance Stewart 


Losing Chance Stewart would be a blow, a big blow. I believe the upside for Stewart to be higher than any QB we have landed in the past 20 years. I do not care what the preferences are for offensive style going forward, he is likely a better QB prospect than any dual-threat prospect that Ludwig and Andersen can lure to Madison. I'm a huge fan of Andersen to date but if he stiffs Stewart, it will be a big reputation blow in my eyes. I would seriously question his judgement:  that has not happened at all to date.

Couldn't disagree more, if the QB doesn't fit what you want to do you simply go in a different direction. I have no idea how good Chance Stewart is, might be the next Peyton Manning for all I know, but that doesn't matter if he doesn't fit he doesn't fit and it would be STUPID to change your entire philosophy for one kid who may never be anything special.

RE: Chance Stewart 


Chance can run Ludwigs offense though. They arent running USU's, but more like SDSU's. Stewart has good feet and the ability to scoot.

I agree that if he doesn't fit...let him go, but at least talk with him. Besides he would fit...IMHO.

LOL the same guy who thinks Stave is terrible and Houston is an "unknown" is convinced some kid in his Junior year of HS is the next Peyton Manning, I love it.

Every scholarship quarterback on our team for this season and next (barring a late commitment) is going to be best suited for the pro-style offense. Unless we want to go through what Michigan went through with Steven Threet and Rich Rod, we're already going to be running the offense that best suits Chance.

How he fits, or how he projects is anyone's guess. The young man, at the very least, deserves a phone call.

My guess is that they are just a little busy with 2013, nothing will change in the next week.

KP...If GA thinks someone else would be a better fit as a QB..so be it...

I just want the kid to be treated right. I will give the staff the benefit of the doubt...for now.

+1................lets get past 2013 and then worry about the 2014 class beginning on Feb 7.  Dont panic!   Ludwig is primarily a pro style guy,  Chance fits in perfectly.
He could start here for his last 2yrs, and then go on to a nice pro career.

Re: Chance Stewart 


It is quit possible that they want a different quarterback and I have no problem with that.  They have a full year recruiting cycle to find that QB.  I am not going to second guess them on any of the 2014 commits at this point....but...

....do the classy thing and let the kid know your plans.

exactly. no need to get all crazy about this. imagine how busy these guys are with the class that's supposed to ink up in a few days. chance stewart is a very important piece to next year's class. coaches will be in contact with him and i'm sure they'll discuss the whole situation. reeeelllaaaaxxxxxxxxxxx

The philosophy of waiting until after signing day is great and all but then don't be offering and talking to other potential recruits in the meantime. A phone call or text takes 5 minutes.

RE: Chance Stewart 


Michigan's DickRod experiment haunts me through-out all this talk about dual-threat option QBs.  It was a huge mistake by Michigan that was clearly seen by just about everyone except Michigan.  It set back that program at least 5, maybe 10 years.  We do not want to go through that in Madison.  I am sure that was not lost on Alvarez but can only hope that is true for Andersen.

Re: Chance Stewart 


I just get this feeling that with the way recruiting is unfolding and articles written about what recruits are saying that we are most certainly heading towards a spread type offense.

I don't think you are going to be seeing to many formations with 2 running backs which is why you need to move Watt back to linebacker.

Anderson better win early and not have any character issues with some of these JUCO's etc or the fans will turn on him fast for not doing it the "Wisconsin way".

I have this eery feeling of when Don Morton came in a changed the offense, etc and as already has been mentioned the RichRod experiment

Things are changing drastically for the first time since this program turned the corner 20 years ago.  New offensive philosophy and new defensive philosophy.
