The offensive game plan was pretty bland for this game, so I don’t think either “Jarretano” as the broadcast crew kept calling him or JT Shrout were really asked to do a whole lot. Still, Guarantano was disappointing following his best outing of the season against South Carolina. His interception in the end zone was horrendous, and he didn’t have the most crisp throws down the field when he did throw it beyond the 10 or 15-yard mark. Shrout didn’t do a whole lot, and he was inaccurate on several of the throws he did make. Guarantano had a nice 13-yard touchdown toss to Eric Gray, and when you consider the fact that he was playing just six days after having surgery on his left hand, I’ll give him a break. I don’t think his play was as bad as some would have you believe, but it certainly wasn’t great, either.

Jarrett Guarantano didn’t necessarily play great, but he also didn’t play as poorly as Twitter wants to believe. The red zone struggles are bad, but it’s a collective problem, not just a quarterback problem. Again, Guarantano didn’t play well, especially the interception in the end zone just before the half that took points off the board. Aside from that, the junior played well enough to win considering he had multiple screws in his hand and the offense was extremely vanilla due to the opponent. Guarantano didn’t have a ton of protection for most of the night.
