    Rice 6
    UTEP 7
    Rutgers 7
    Illinois 8
    New Mexico 8
    Kent St. 8
    Ga. Southern 8
    Michigan 9
    Old Dominion 9
    Minnesota 9
    Kentucky 10
    UNLV 10
    Florida 10
    Charlotte 10
    Air Force 10
    Georgia Tech 10
    Navy 10
    "I don't know what class is but I can tell when one has it, you can tell from a mile away"
    -- Coach Bryant

    "We always talk about playing 60 minutes but this is a 60-10 game: the 60 minutes of the game and the 10 minutes in the locker room after the game that you remember for the rest of your life."
    -- Nick Saban day after beating Clemson

    Quite interesting. I suppose there is a formula that could be used to make a reasonable guess what he might have done if he had been the starter. Since he only played mop-up duty during the regular season he couldn't really throw so much since calling too many pass plays would appear that we are simply trying to run up the score.

    I just peeked ahead to 2018...
    Things look bright for us.
    We have the Running backs. We have the Quarterbacks. We have lots of guys with game experience.
    And Lastly... We have Auburn at home. We have MSU at home, No Cow Bells either...

    Guessing our toughest games are @LSU and Auburn. We have A&M at home too.

    Michigan and Florida being on that list is crazy. Harbaugh's really earning those dineros.

    I'm going to go ahead and say the over/under on Tua TD passes for next season is (39.5)

    With that I'll take the over... Barring injury I see 40+ Passing TD's in 2018.

    It's not as crazy as it sounds. He threw 11 TD's in 2-3 games worth of reps this year.

    I agree, it's not crazy. For once we truly have a passing QB that could achieve those sort of stats. Kid is gonna break and set some records, that's for sure.

    Crazy stat: If you look at passing TDs for this season, there were 3 times that a QB threw for 3 TDs. 1. Hurts against Mercer. 2. Tua against Mercer. 3. Tua against UGA.

    It is unbelievable to think that he matched our season high in ONE HALF of a National Championship game. Crazy.

    I dearly hope Tua is throwing a bomb on the last play with the score Bama 100 - Barn 0.
