    Ramsey will more than likely get his chances this year at some point due to an injury.

    Hopefully this works out better than the last time IU went into the season with 3 capable QB's in 2014.

    The thing is, even as a game manager, Peyton Ramsey reminded me of Jon Kitna. Limited upside, could get on a bit of a roll, but still made some mind blowing mistakes that undercut his ability to truly be a game manager.
    In all honesty, he's the ideal backup quarterback. He won't kill you if you have to use him in relief, or to get you through a game or two. But if you have someone else with an option I'd recommend them.

    That is a good summation. One of the things that killed last season is Indiana just couldn't get big plays, every drive had to be earned 1st down by 1st down it seemed. And then we had issues stalling out in the RedZone. Hopefully Penix adds a new big play dimension, which I think he will with his arm strength and ability to tuck it and run.

    We had a small sample size of what Penix can do...he impressed. Oh and he still has 4 years of eligibility left.
