No 6th year of eligibility for him.

That would have been great for Mauk, but I'm not so sure it would have been so great for UC. They will now likely give the ball to a QB who is better suited for the spread. Great guy, and I would have liked to see Mauk play again, but maybe they are better off now.

I'll be shocked if Demetrius Jones doesn't excel in Brian Kelly's offense.

Rick Minter said that Jones style is similar to Vince Young in that he can scramble and makes things happen with his legs. I've never seen him play other than the 1 quarter he played for ND, but Minter has seen him a ton when he was at ND and Jones ran the scout team offense.

I believe that after his transfer, Jones was able to practice with UC and played quarterback for the scout team.

My brother is a sports writer, and told me that he wasn't overly fast. So much for that.

Did anyone here on this board have the privilege to see Ben Mauk play as a high schooler? There aren't enough adjectives to describe how good he was.

Where did you get that number from? I keep seeing 4.65 and 4.7 places.

His Rivals profile says he runs a 4.5 and his Scout profile says he runs a 4.7 so I guess I'll assume he does indeed run in the 4.6 range. Thats pretty good for a QB, but I thought he was a tick faster. I'm excited to see him play.

I heard Brian Kelly state as of now Dustin Grutza would be the starter. However I believe with spring ball Jones will win the job.
