Shame, shame, shame on me! I completely missed that sentence. Makes perfect sense in that light. Looking at it from a total yardage, total TD's, and INT's would make the list different.
Ok. This is ridiculous. First, Drew Lock wasn't even the best sophomore QB in 2016. Last year, Nick Fitzgerald had more total offense and more TD's, with the same or fewer number of INT's, than numbers 10, 9, 8, 7, 5, and 4 on this list. With an inferior offensive line and half a season with no RB. He was clearly superior to most of the QB's on this list. Also, Tebow should be ranked higher.
We will likely be better in 2017. Mullen's QB's always peak at their junior season, and Fitzgerald was already pretty good. Our defense cannot be worse. The idea that we will beat Alabama is laughable. If we get within two scores, it will be reminiscent of many of our games with them. Too little, too late.
His passing numbers were as good as Dak's. He is a far better runner.
As well as Mullen works with QB's, he probably should have signed with Alabama or somebody like that. He didn't fit.
QB transfers are an epidemic. We (MSU) lost three this year, because they are young and couldn't beat out Nick Fitzgerald.
Comment on Do SEC schools owe local/legacy recruits anything? Mississippi State fans seem to think so
I'm not concerned about this one kid, but we have been HORRIBLE at recruiting OL's. Horrible. Look at the other positions. We have recruited elite players, multiple elite players at every position except OL over the last six or seven years. Not all of them have worked, but better high school players general make better college players.
Fitzgerald and Williams DID NOT go head to head. Unless players are on the field at the same time, they aren't competing.
QB's, RB's, and receivers cannot win games. That takes 50 players and a group of coaches. All an individual player can do is make his play.
Look up the history of Dan Mullen's QB's as juniors. Always their best seasons. Fitzgerald will have a great shot.
Against a fairly weak defense. Suppose Nick Fitzgerald had had a game against MSU's defense.
And Guice or Fitzgerald should be #1.
If big plays and doing it with fewer touches are the measure, Fitzgerald must go above Williams.
BamaTime, Ole Miss fans making fun of State fans is no different from people in Alabama making fun of MS.
It's laughable that Ole Miss fans think they are somehow different from State fans. We grow up and go to the same churches and schools. We live in the same neighborhoods. Then, we separate for four years. When we are done with college, we return to work in the same offices, live in the same neighborhoods, and send our kids to the same schools. Yet, somehow I'm supposed to believe we are different? That is quite literally stupid. By the way, ever been to Batesville or Senatobia? Full of UM fans.
He's 40. Also, he's a man.
Comment on Elite Mississippi recruit expresses his relief over choosing Mississippi State over Ole Miss
Both Ole Miss and MSU will be put in their places. The conspiracy theorist in me suspects that UA, AU, UGA, UF, LSU, and even TA&M boosters don't like the upstarts.
Jerious Norwood didn't contribute much his freshman season, but he also split time with fellow sophomore Nick Turner in his second season. Both had over
