He must be moving up the depth chart since Zook replaced Scheelhasse with him the final 2 minutes of the game. If Scheelhasse continues throwing 4 picks a game, Osei may get more time.

Just think that it means they don't want to burn Whitmer's red shirt. With O'toole coming in next year I just don't see how Miles makes his way on to the field as the every down starter in the upcoming years. We'll find out.

He came in because Scheelhaase got hurt. He took a big hit and combine that with the fact that he'd had a pretty bad game and the game was out of hand, they went with Osei.

Word around those close to the team say Osei is now the #2 QB. Chandler Whitmer has not developed as expected.

Or because they wanted to redshirt Whitmer...

Could be. Either way I have a friend that is a team manager and he says Osei is #2 talent wise. If Scheelhaase tore an ACL tomorrow Osei would be the guy to go.

Osei beat out Whitmer straight up in the Summer. Stronger arm and is able to make more plays with his feet.

I do not, nor have I ever understood the "can't miss" aura that seemed to follow Whitmer. He was good in high school and a D1 prospect, but not the type of guy who should have been signed, sealed, and delivered to Champaign before he took a snap as a senior.

Will be interesting to see how much more PT he gets this year. Zook cannot afford mistakes and Scheelhausse has made many so far
