How about ...
Been meaning to ask this for several weeks. Why haven't the coaches moved Barrett into the backfield???

That new rule says true freshmen can play 4 games and still have their eligibility. I would expect one of the other QBs is good enough at this point to be the 'backup' to Crum. Meanwhile, Barrett's size and shiftyness should be an asset in the backfield.

Just wondering???

Very good point, the mismatches and confusion they could generate would be tremendous and a good way to keep him still vested. Just my thinking, but I wouldn’t expect to see him come back next year as a backup to Crum again when he could go FCS and play right away.

Woody's demeanor on the sideline is encouraging. I'm proud of him.

I'm very curious to see what he does. If I were the coaches I would offer to let him come back as the emergency #2 string QB next year with the intent of redshirting him. Don't play him in garbage time. If Crum goes down early it's his season. Otherwise he's the #2 QB with the understanding he will not play more than 4 games. Then after Crum's gone he's a true free agent. He's had a year to compete against thr freshman to know he he thinks he can win our starting job. Or he has the option to pick another D1 school with an immediate need.

If he doesn't do that then I agree on FCS. Transferring to a D1 school would be a bad move. He'll sit out for a year and who knows how their QB situation changes in a year.

A move from QB to another offensive backfield position rarely if ever goes well. A shift to receiver or to the defensive backfield would be a better option.

He redshirted at Auburn, then transferred and played a year at JUCO, then transferred to KSU and played last season and this season. He can’t redshirt again, he has next season to play his last season of eligibility, which is why IMO I’d be surprised if he comes back and sits if he can go to an FCS school and start his last year.

I think a handful of plays with anything from H-back to slot to TE to RB could really work well either running, trick plays passing or just the threat of a pass.

Ah I guess you're right. I didn't think he actually redshirted at Auburn. I remember reading he transfered before the season started after he lost out on the QB job. I thought that was in his true freshman season but yeah it looks like he did spend a full year there as a redshirt first.

RE: How about ...
So that being the case that means Woody has been on a college campus for 4 years now. It's probably possible that he graduates and is able pick any D1 school in need of a starter. Honestly that's what I hope he does. He's a D1 QB for sure. As far as playing him at RB goes I don't see the fit. He's a solid scrambling QB but he's no where near an Edelman Cribbs runner. I think Crum is actually a better runner than him too. Williams and Matthews are handling the running duties fine so no need to risk an injury that could derail his chances of starting for someone else next year.

I think his lack of passing touch/accuracy will hold him back from being a sure fire starter at any FBS school but certainly see him being a great addition to a very good FCS looking for that one year bridge.

Looks like Lewis has been paying attention. Barrett running out of the backfield on the first drive.
