I disagree but I'm willing to go with anything at this point.
The problem isn't Smith or Whitlow, it's Smith AND Whitlow. I liked the idea at first of having a two QB system but once you make a change the offense just starts to sputter. The offense was clicking with Whitlow and Kemp (who I don't understand why he didn't get more carries) on the first drive, but when they brought in Max Smith the drive stalled.
Stoops and Brown need to pick one of those two (preferably Whitlow because I believe Smith's arm is shot) or pull the redshirt off of Towles and let him start the rest of the season. Take the freshmen, work them in gradually, and have a nucleus ready for the start of next season and keep adding to it.
