    Big XII Team QB Rankings

    Newsday ranks the ISU QB's (Arnaud, Tiller) as the #2 group in the North behind KU (Reesing, Kale Pick - interesting name for a QB ).

    The Big 12 QB debate (Campus Confidential) - Newsday.com

    We all know that the play of the QBs goes a long way (perhaps more than any other position) toward the success of a team. Rankings are one thing, and results on the field are another, but it is encouraging that people outside the ISU community are recognizing our relative QB strength in the Division.

    Now, if the Defense could just hold teams under 30 points.....

    Re: Big XII Team QB Rankings

    I would say we are number one. I will take Arnaud over Reesing any day and it remains to be seen, but from what I've heard I would maybe like to have Tiller over him too. I just have never been greatly impressed.

    Re: Big XII Team QB Rankings

    Not sure what it is about 3888 yards 66.5 % comp 32 TDs 148.53 rating that you don't like. I like AA but I have to agree that Reesing is a slightly better choice but it is close. As for Tiller, let's hope he turns out to be better than Reesing, but I have no idea how you would take a player that hasn't played a down of D1 football over a successful QB like Reesing.

    Yeah, all Reesing has done is resurrected their program and taken them to two bowls.

    Didn't you guys get the memo? Nobody who plays any team other than Iowa State can be mentioned as "good" on this message board.

    Re: Big XII Team QB Rankings

    I'd probably take Arnaud over Reesing as well - doesn't necessarily make him the better QB over Reesing, though...

    I would put Arnaud ahead of Jerrod Johnson, and the kid from Tech, who's never started...

    Thanks for the link. Hard not to argue with the rankings.

    I'm not worried about an inexperienced QB at Tech. In Leach's system, Tech doesn't rebuild, they simply reload.

    Right. A guy doesn't have to be a great QB in that system. Right now, ISU has more QB's in the NFL than Tech does (I think). I think Arnaud joins that club, and who knows if this guy will.

    Re: Big XII Team QB Rankings

    As of right now, you have to take Reesing over Austen.

    Have you been drinking that sludgey, dark hawkeye kool-aid recently?

    I Love what AA has done here, but Reesing has put together a phenominal career at(for) KU. I'd say that maybe AA is in the discussion with Kerry Meier though.

    The same Jerrod Johnson who threw for 381 yards against us with 4 TD's and he didn't even know he was starting until a couple days before the game. He is pretty good

    I understand why you would give the nod to the more experienced player, but I'm sure this will change by the end of the year when Texas Tech QB, (insert name here), just got done throwing for 4000+ yards and 40+ TDs.

    It doesn't seem to matter who those guys have as QB...their system is incredible.

    Re: Big XII Team QB Rankings

    Did anyone watch the KU game last year? I think the D giving up 3 3rd quarter TDs, and our receivers dropping balls was the problem. AA held his own.
