Last year Jordan Thompson and Imac.
2011 Brad Starks and Imac
Another thing to keep in mind those years at Houston they threw it 600 times one year and 700 the next. I think Geno only threw 525 ish this year. Also Houston did it against teams like Tulane, Southern Methodist,Tulsa, Utep, Rice, UAB, Southern

Brad Starks? Really? He was a no star recruit that nothing was ever expected of. Thompson has been there one year..
iMac yes, colossal bust
Houston did it in conf USA yes, but they did it with conf USA talent too
Where did IMac transfer to or is he out of college altogether?

I have no idea who had what stars ever, I couldnt even tell you what stars our current recruits have, because it doesnt matter. I watch the videos and draw my own conclusions. Brad Starks was hyped all offseason for 2 years is all I know and all he did was get hurt.
Fair point, I just must have missed the Starks hype. To me I never saw him do anything to deserve any
Me neither, but I kept hearing he was the fastest guy on the team and he was gonna be a big down the field threat. Actually he showed flashes at times, but the rest of his career was a head scratcher.
Next year will all come down to O-line play. If the line can't protect our young QB or open holes for the run game it will be a long year.
I might be wrong, but I think Richrod recruited Starks to be a QB, same for Brandon Hogan, but both were atheletic enough to find the field at different positions.

Yes...Several I wasn't real familiar with.
Those other guys you mentioned really weren't known quantities until Holgs. I don't think any of them were above a 3* coming out. Didnt research that though.
Someone will step up if we can protect the young QB
We also have the most heralded line assembled in recent memory next year.
Such a tough call. I like this list though. I have trouble deciding between Robinson, Mathis, Myers, Campbell, and Gourdine but they all have potential. We'll also get a lot of miles out of one of the 4000 APBs we're bringing in to play some slot. If we flip Alford and Boyd all bets are off too lol.
In 2008 we had what many publications considered the best OLine in the country.
Agree with all of this, yes its unproven talent but if a few things go our way before NSD we are going to have some serious speed and ability on the edges and like 36 different people we can line up in the backfield
Wasnt Starks recruited as a QB? And injuries set him back his sr yr. I liked him
And the worst O-line coach in the country...Nice guy, but there's a reason he's no longer an OL coach in Div. 1.
Starks was a 4* on Rivals.
You're absolutely correct about Houston.
I think the lack of receptions is being over-blown. The offense has no choice but to find someone to catch the ball. Will this offense have a guy like Austin who will get YAC? Who knows. Will we have a clutch deep threat like Baily? Who knows. Do we have a QB who can make the right throw all the time? No. The one thing I believe is that we have more all around depth and talent and that eventually the offense will click.
4 games in we will have already played OU, MD and 2 jokes. The 2 jokes will allow our youth a chance to get comfortable and OU will allow our youth a very tough challenge in week 2 to focus on during the summer. I think this team is running on all cylinders by week 6 and will get better each and every week. Look at TCU and Baylor this year as examples of how you finish matters more than how you start.
