How Good Is Colt McCoy?

Colt McCoy for Heisman? Sounds ridiculous right? You think I am just being a fan, right? Well since you won’t believe Fan Situ, I will have to make my case as Reporter Situ. First off, who are the leading candidates for the Heisman at the quarterback position? Well many people would say this is debatable, so I will pull from credible sources. According to, the top three quarterback candidates are in order Troy Smith, Brady Quinn, and Erik Ainge. According to ESPN‘s Heisman page, the top three QB candidates are Smith, Quinn, and Pat White. Finally according to Fox Sports, their top three QB candidates are Smith, Quinn, and White. So let’s take a look at how these four quarterbacks stack up against each other and as Los would say, “how’s Colt McCoy?” so we will throw him into the mix also. (These stats are current as of today, November 5th.)

Smith - 158-of-237 for 2,006 yds, 22 TDs, 3 INTs, 66.7% comp rate and 165.9 rating.
Quinn -216-of-338 for 2,579 yds, 25 TDs, 4 INTs, 63.9% comp rate and 150.04 rating.
White - 77-of-113 for 1,044 yds, 6 TDs, 5 INTs, 68.1% comp rate and 154.4 rating.
Ainge - 168-of-252 for 2,216 yds, 16 TDs, 8 INTs, 66.7% comp rate and 155.1 rating.
McCoy - 170-of-246 for 2,051 yds, 27 TDs, 4 INTs, 69.1% comp rate and 172.1 rating.

Smith - 53 rushes for 206 yds, 1 TD
Quinn – 59 rushes for (negative) -37 yds, 2 TD’s
White – 96 rushes for 744 yds, 13 TD’s
Ainge – 19 rushes for (negative) -58 yds, 1 TD
McCoy – 62 rushes for 180 yds, 1 TD

Colt leads in touchdowns, completion percentage, and passer rating. The numbers don’t lie, you can see McCoy is clearly one of, if not the best, quarterbacks in the NCAA right now. I know that is extremely rare for a freshman to win the Heisman, but I believe McCoy should at least be invited to the ceremony in New York. If not that, then let me be the first to begin the official campaign of McCoy for Heisman in ’07. Actually I think this guy was first but you get the point. McCoy is close to having people say, “Vince who?” Okay maybe not because V.Y. was a king, but then surely McCoy is the successor to the throne.

McCoy deserves to be part of Heisman conversation (Austin American Statesman)

Here is another nice Colt McCoy site I came across.

Willie B you're so ridiculous with those comments, are you willing to put your money where your mouth is? I am. Did you not just read the post here? McCoy is one of the best quarterbacks in all of college, and you want to bench him? I think Snead is a good athlete, but I don't see how he could do any better than McCoy is doing now.

Snead is the better athlete and the coaches always go for the better talent, and one reason he is great is b/c he has that great line in front of him, give the line props for bein great!
