    his quote- the triple option was never my thing...

    what did he think he was going to do at GT? Was he recruited at another position and moved?

    He's been back and forth on transferring since he got to GT. He convinced himself that Gt was going to do a wholesale change when he became qb. As you stated you have to be able to run the base offense.

    Being a QB was not his thing.....GT thought they had a real passing threat with him.......

    He thought that when he got to GT that offense would go from a wishbone base to more a flexbone base. Most flexbone offenses use a more complicated passing tree (more similar to what the pro style uses for its base routes). Paul Johnson's passing tree only has 1 route - the 9 (aka fly).

    That may be a little simplistic (I realize it was intended as humor), but that offensive scheme is designed to be a rush-based offense, so I'm not sure what Vad Lee expected. Lee didn't exactly impress with his ability to make the simpler throws required of a quarterback in that scheme either, in addition to his decision making in the option game that never seemed to develop. I don't think GT will really miss him next year once Thomas (I assume) is getting 1st team reps. I'm not sure of their other options (pun not intended) at the position, but Thomas seemed more capable of executing the base offense and his quickness at the position may also benefit them. Lee may have done them a favor by transferring and opting out of a QB controversy.

    You nailed it. There was already some speculation that Thomas may have over taken Vad in the offseason because of Vad's inability to grasp the offense. Vad is simply a slow decision maker with poor mechanics, which is a bad combo for a QB at this level.

    Both offensive schemes are heavy run base .
