A hard-working blogger can count on a few things.
One, there is always a demand for something new.
Two, there is rarely a shortage of topics to choose from when “college sports” is the general theme.
Three, Navy SID Scott Strasemeier will usually send something along a couple times a month that makes a fantastic chart.
And since Navy will go ahead and start Ricky Dobbstomorrow night at quarterback, it’ll mean the Midshipmen join 10 other schools with three starting QBs (at least by the end of the week, since Louisiana State is trotting out QB #3 on Friday against Arkansas).
Here’s the full list, with each QB’s record broken out as well. What intrigues me is only one of these teams was horrible this season, and Washington State was going to be bad even if it had been able to morph Sam Bradford, Graham Harrell, Colt McCoy and Tim Tebow into some sort of superhuman QB.
But at least the Cougars won the Apple Cup. A lot of teams on this list would still like to win their rivalry games as well. (*-this week’s likely starter)
