    Stats breakdown of Iowa State QB's since 1960

    All ISU QB's who have thrown more than 100 passes (except Sam Richardson) are listed and compared to each other on: passing completion percentage, TD-Int. Ratio and quarterback rating. To me, some of these stats were very surprising, one cyclone compared to another. I will acknowledge that college football passing games have undergone radical development over this 53 year time period. So, comparing a 2010 QB to a 1961 QB is a little like comparing apples and oranges. But, the bottom line is still the same, completions, touchdowns over interceptions (and wins of course) are the name of the game. Also, there is no attempt to compare quarterbacks running abilities/statistics. So, with all of these givens, just try and enjoy the comparisons. I think you will be surprised. The most recent quarterbacks fare very well, in relation to their peers. I found it very surprising that George Amundson was so low. http://iowastateqb.homestead.com/

    Thanks for posting! If nothing else I expect Sam Richardson to continue his impressive streak of rarely turning the ball over. If he does that he is already doing better than Steele.

    Thanks for posting. Maybe people will see it and realize that them asking for a QB to complete "just 65%" of their passes is something that's never been done here before.

    I was a little taken back to see Bandhauer under 50%. Also, I'd take Brett Oberg right now in a heartbeat.

    It's never been done before but the game has changed too. A lot more short, easy passes. To be a successful team in the Big 12 with our offense 60-65% might be necessary.

    The game has definitely changed. A quick Google search shows this:

    Terry Bradshaw (HOF) had a career % of 51.9%
    Tony Romo (middle of the road QB) is 64.7%
    Vince Young (NFL Bust) is better than TB at 57.9%

    Different offensive philosophy and the outlaw of defense has changes ball

    I always thought Sage would have had better numbers given his NFL tenure....of course NFL doesn't always look for stats, or else why would James Vandenberg ever have a shot with the Vikings?

    I'm also surprised that Sage is at 52%.

    That offense with Oberg, Bryant, Lester, Sims, Williams, etc was so much fun to watch. They could spread the field and put up some points. Unfortunately the defense was as bad as it gets. I'll never forget the OU game at Jack Trice where Oberg and Lester had their way with the Sooners. Unfortunately the defense couldn't stop them.

    This makes me think of a though-experiment thread (one that probably exists on CF, although I don't recall seeing): Best combo teams of offense & defense in ISU history.

    Example: The Oberg offense and 2012 defense.

    Re: Stats breakdown of Iowa State QB's since 1960

    we all know our offense needs to score points. If SB is the QB for the next two years and we score 30ppg over that span figuring 40% of scoring is from TD Passes (just an estimate what do you think?) that's 12ppg so 2 td passes per game. Not even figuring in possible bowl games he would be our career TD leader by 10th game of his Jr year. Please let that happen.


    I'm kind of a big deal!
