    Big 12 QB Rankings

    Ranking the Big 12's top 10 quarterbacks - Dallas Colleges Blog - ESPN Dallas

    I was wondering who they would plan on for us when I saw the Banner

    I would shuffle around the top three for sure

    Re: Big 12 QB Rankings

    I could easily see any of the top 3 or even 4 being the top QB in the conference.

    Its hard to argue one is better than the other or the other or the other.

    I would probably go :

    Jones 1a
    Weeden 1b

    Griffen 2a
    Tannehill 2b


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    Re: Big 12 QB Rankings

    I would almost go with Weeden over Jones because he seems like a better QB, skills wise. Jones is good, but I wonder if he looks better because of the system that he is in. OU's fast paced offense can sometimes catch a guy or two out of position leading to easier plays.

    Re: Big 12 QB Rankings

    Regardless of who is our quarterback he'll likely be ranked ninth just above KU until they can prove something...

    Kstate has a decent qb? I'll believe it when I see it.

    Jantz will move up that list a few spots by the end of the year.

    Re: Big 12 QB Rankings

    Lets hope when he learns the system, he rises above the hype, wins the job and makes our offense competitive enough to keep up with the Big 12 horses.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Re: Big 12 QB Rankings

    Its a pretty big crap shoot after the top 4. Admittedly, the top 4 are really really good, but after that there are 3 guys who havent started a game (Doege, Franklin, and Jantz), theres a guy whose better known for running than passing (Klein), a guy whose been a big dissapointment so far (Gilbert), and a guy who I believe has started 2 or 3 games (Webb). Not exactly daunting outside of those top 4 guys.

    Now, I think Doege and Franklin will be really good, but they really haven't proved anything yet.

    Agreed, I think he will drop to 9th when the season ends.

    Seeing all your posts about Steele, I think your hopes for him may be too high.

    Hope not though.

    He threw for 900 yards against their defense in the spring game. He must be awesome.

    I agree with you there. He probably won't be any worse than Carson Coffman but that isnt saying much at all.
