No he didn’t. Everyone fell in love after that long TD vs UGA but outside of that play, he looked lost out there and it’s lucky he didnt have twice as many interceptions as he did.

Oh, and he’s very small, and can’t finish a game.

That said, he had confidence and moxie. If he was patient and took a red shirt year, he could be something down the line. But not now. Transferring is a mistake.
This is 100% truth.. Outside of the 1st half vs UGA BM was pretty terrible. There's a reason he was pulled after 1 drive in the bowl game.. He does seems to have some swag about him, I'll give him that.

I think he was looking up at JG, HB and even Hill to start.
I don't think Hill is a factor either but he was ten times better at UM than BM was last year.
If all is well after his injury I think Hill is too good of an athlete to sit on the bench. Meaning I think they find somewhere for him to play on offense, whether it be WR, SR or HB.

Maurer plays the same way. A virtual carbon copy. TO machine. 2.5 TD to INT ratio and was lucky it was only that bad. 45% completion. I've seen enough.
Believe what you will. Not saying Maurer is an All-American in the making, but he has the tools to be really good. McBride even left Lamar......because he can’t play

It will be interesting to see if he developed a rapport with Gibbs, Johnson, and some of the younger receivers while on the practice squad.

BM made some a couple good runs and one nice deep throw to Callaway be UGA. Other than that he was hurt or played very poorly. The only reason people give him a nod above JG is because of the year difference. That's fair and all but to act like he flashed some kind of greatness is a bit overblown.
I gave him the nod because A) he had high energy and the team responded to that and B) for better or worse the ball comes out on time.

He had every opportunity to take the starting position by the horns, but could not do it.

He has potential, but needed to RS this past year. Maybe still needs too.
No , the concussion held him back. If he had not suffered that injury I believe he would have won the starter’s job.
