No snarky or witty into here, let’s just get down to the brass tax. You know what this post is about.
1. Denard Robinson- Wolverines
All his deep completions are just lucky jump balls that he throws up there. And he lofts it when he shouldn’t. And doesn’t loft it when he should. Yet despite all that, in spite of his horrible completion percentage, he still gets it done. The best single threat QB ever.
2. Braxton Miller- Ohio State
Has the talent to break out this year and live up to this hype. I guess. As you can surmise, this is a rather weak group.
3. James Vandenberg- Hawkeyes
The best pure passer in the group and the first true classic dropback passer in the bunch. Yes, those are all code words for “white.”
4. Kain Colter- Northwestern
Not a homer pick, did you see the Nebraska game. Also QBs are flourishing in the system. Mick McCall is a genius. Colter will get his this season.
5. Danny O’Brien- Badgers
6. Nate Scheelhaase- Illini
Experience should rank him higher, but did you see the Illinois spring game? Or the bowl game? Or what happened when teams started to try and cover A.J. Jenkins? Nathan has been regressing some.
They say he fixed his mechanics, I’ll believe it when I see it. And right now I don’t want to look at his throwing mechanics cuz they’ll make me vomit in my mouth; which will make me then vomit on my shoes.
8. Caleb Terbush- Purdue
Not bad, but again what makes him so special? Why is everyone so high on him/this team?
9. Andrew Maxwell- Michigan State
Has the tools and tangibles, but until we see it in game experience; have to rank him down here.
10. MarQueis Gray- Gophers
Really would be ranked much higher if he were on a better team. Sorry, but that’s just the way it is.
11. Tre Roberson- Hoosiers
Has potential, but also tossed twice as many picks as TDs last year. May not win the job
12. Matt McGloin- Penn State
