The Greatest College Team Needs 2 QBs!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dual QB- There are many who come to mind, Tommie Frazier, Eric Crouch and Steve Young to name a few but I believe that Vince Young is probably the best but that is probably because he is the freshest in my mind.

Pocket Passer QB- Again a tough call but I would have to go with Peyton Manning from Tennessee over Detmer from BYU because of what Peyton did not only in college but in the NFL.

The Greatest College Team Needs 2 QBs!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am glad that you opened this up to 2 QBs so I will submit my 2 and then do a Top 2 for each school with top tier QB talent as an HM list. This may take a while so please be patient. I love NCAA football...

  1. Ty Detmer (BYU Cougars) - won the Heisman Trophy in 1991. Won the Davey O'Brien Trophy in 1990 and 1991. 1991 All American. The best pure passer I have ever seen in person. Perhaps he was too short to make it in the NFL, but he lit up opposing defenses with a minimal running game. In other words they knew what was coming and still couldn't stop it.
  2. Tommie Frazier (Nebraska Cornhuskers) - 1995 Johnny Unitas Award winner, he was a dual threat before it really became popular. I had a really tough time picking between Vince Young, Eric Crouch, Steve Young, Tim Tebow, Troy Smith, and Michael Vick. I was really torn, but I decided to go with the old school pick. 2 time NC.

Now for the HM list (2 for each school) -

  • BYU - Steve Young & Jim McMahon
  • WSU - Ryan Leaf & Drew Bledsoe
  • USC - Matt Leinart & Carson Palmer
  • Texas - Vince Young & Major Applewhite
  • Oklahoma - Jason White & Josh Huepel

  • FSU - Charlie Ward & Chris Weinke
  • Tennessee - Peyton Manning & Tee Martin
  • Stanford - Jim Plunkett & John Elway
  • UW - Mark Brunell & Warren Moon
  • Syracuse - Donovan McNabb & Don McPherson
  • Michigan - Jim Harbaugh & Brian Greise
  • Purdue - Jim Everett & Drew Brees
  • Notre Dame - Brady Quinn & Joe Montana
  • Penn State - Kerry Collins & Todd Blackledge
  • Nebraska - Eric Crouch & Turner Gill
  • Louisville - Chris Redman & Brian Brohm
  • West Virginia - Pat White & Major Harris

The Greatest College Team Needs 2 QBs!!!!!!!!!!!!


John Elway (Stanford)

Steve Young (BYU)

Both quarterbacks could pass and run, and DID!

I can't see picking a wishbone QB or a passing system QB (ex: Texas Tech). Why? Many wishbone QB's are "running backs" that have some passing ability. Last week the Air Force QB ran for a hundred-plus yards and went 0 for 7 passing. That's not playing the QB position, IMHO. Yes, there were some great QB's at Nebraska and Oklahoma. However, they just don't match-up with the two I've chosen.

Vince Young was an instinctive runner that had a few great games in his senior year, primarily. He was very average early on and nearly lost his starting job several times. One game doesn't make greatness. I live in Vince's hometown, Houston. Other than the NCG against USC, Major Applewhite is considered a better Texas QB. That's coming from his hometown.

Honorable Mention (no particular order):  Joe Montana (Notre Dame); Roger Staubach (Navy); Carson Palmer (USC); Troy Aikman (UCLA); Steve Bartkowski (California); Peyton Manning (Tennessee); and Dan Marino (Pitt).

Who is going to run this team...

Pocket Passer --- he was jilted in the draft and came back to haunt a great many teams, I will go with Dan Marino... quickest release ever seen... he was a machine while at Pitt... a shaky reputation led to his dropping like a rock in the draft, but the Dolphins were very happy with what they got...

Scrambler --- this is a tougher call for me as I am not enamored with this type of quarterback (stay in the pocket and throw the ball)... I will go with Michael... no Tommie... no Randall... no Vince Young... yup that is it Vince Young... maybe because it it the freshest in my mind, but he dominated so many games while at Texas all the way to the National Championship...

There are soooo many QB's that were amazing in college... it is awful hard to decide on just two... I will not even list an honorable mention as it might sway me to change my votes...

Thanks for bringing back so good memories... and for that matter some bad ones...
