    NCAA Starting QBs Ranked 1-130

    https://athlonsports.com/college-foo...-rankings-2017

    Hurts at #11 and Stidham at #12.

    We have had the ongoing discussion about QBs transferring and how we lost three last year. From this article, assuming the starters are those predicted, 36 of the starting 130 starting QBs are transfers. Transfers from the original FBS school they signed with out of high school. I did not count JUCO transfers, but IIRC you could add another 4 to 5 to this total. Roughly 40 QBs (30%) will be starting at programs they did not originally sign with. I found this a surprisingly high percentage.

    Forgive my ignorance, but is Stidham that good? Can he overcome the inadequacies of the Barn offensive coaching?

    He's riding his numbers from Baylor I believe.

    I think the Hurts rating is about right. I'm still not sure everyone realizes how impressive his body of work was when you factor in things like his being a true freshman and the SoS. I'd expect him to take a step forward and firmly entrench himself in the top ten. Stidham is a different animal entirely, because he doesn't have the body of work. He looks impressive, he seems like a good fit, but he's only played 3 full games and those came against Big 12 defenses. So, we'll have to see, seems a bit optimistic to have him quite that high though.

    It might be the first time in history that the 11th rated QB in the country wins the Heisman.....

    Did not want to start a new thread, but thought this was rather funny and strange.

    I was thinking "Wade Right" (but he would have signed at FSU for that to really be funny) -- but "Chance Poorr" is pretty bad too....

    Hurts at 11 seems about right to me. My issue is with Lamar Jackson being #1 and JT being #4. Those both just seem obviously overrated IMO. JT seems to be living off his freshman year considering Hurts not only had better Y/A, Cmp %, more yards, better QB rating, more rushing yards and more total TDs he did it against a tougher schedule than JT. Hurts also had a better game against Clemson than JT. If you want to look at an offense shut down by Clemson watch that Semi Final game.

    Basically, I don't think there is a huge difference between JT, Hurts and Jackson and yet 2 are in the top 5 and one isn't even top 10? Seems ridiculous to me.

    Jackson played one tough game and they ran him out of the stadium. System product.

    I know that's not the case, but it does seem like Barret's been there a long time.

    Rosen at #10 is too low also. If he gets his head right, which is a big if, he could be #1.
