This news has been met with mixed emotions among the Baylor faithful. Many believe that the smart thing to do was to redshirt the talented Freshman, while many have said that he would be too good to redshirt. Briles has gone on record as stating that Stidham "is as good as advertised." Stidham had been splitting time with Johnson during the 2 scrimmages that Baylor had, and each of those scrimmages it was obvious that he was continuing to improve and was beginning to separate himself from Johnson.
Briles is putting his team in the possible hands of a True Freshman, should anything happen to Russell, and if there is anyone out there that can determine the readiness of a QB it is Art Briles.
