2013 Draft Eligible QBs Bowl Games

by Steve
Tough title but here are the quarterbacks that I have been documenting all year at the hashtag #myboyslist and their bowl games (which start Saturday!!)

Keith Price, Junior, Washington
Yeah, he is short (6'1 202) and only a junior AND he is black with a white name but he is worth watching.  He hasn't gotten the hype of a Jake Locker (maybe 'cause he is 2 inches shorter), but he had a disappointing season throwing 15 less touchdowns (18 and 11 picks).  Him and the huskies (+5) play 12/22 v Boise St in the MAACO Bowl

Nick Florence, Senior, Baylor
He only got one year as RGIIIs replacement and put up some gaudy numbers in a conference severely lacking in defense. At 6'1 205 and only one season under his belt I hope he got his degree. Thursday 12/27 v UCLA oddly in a pick 'em.

Tyler Tettleton, Junior, Ohio
MAC!  Lowered his interceptions 66% but his touchdown passes came down as well.  ESPN doesn't even list his height (6'0 200) and won't be in the draft this year any way.  12/28 v LA Monroe getting 7 points. AdvoCare V100 INDEPENDENCE BOWL!!

Logan Thomas, Junior , Va Tech
It would be shocking if Thomas his 6'6 frame and lousy season enters the draft this year.  He had 17 tds and 14 picks to go along with four L's in the awful ACC.
Tech plays 12/28 v Rutgers and is -2.5 in the Russell Athletic Bowl.

Geno Smith, Senior, WVU
Saturday 12/29 mark your calendars.  The ol' Big East rivals WVU and 'cuse square off in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.  Can Smith, my leader in the club house play in the cold (Yankee stadium) against a meh 'cuse team?  He lost against the good teams this year but who cares, their defense was awful.  He has size, the arm and a little mobility but is from Miami FL.  Take them -4 at least.  Oh 40 tds to 6 picks too.  (some one named Ryan Nassib is playing too but this is not an oversight by me #donotwant)

Seth Doege, Senior, Texas Tech
Again, gaudy numbers in a defense challenged conference with an asshole coach. 6'1 197? Ouch.  He improved on a decent junior year statistically but the guy did not impress enough to consider even above someone like Nassib. 12/28 -12.5 v Minnesota doesn't help, Minny sucks.

Mike Glennon, Senior, NC State
DO I REALLY HAVE TO WORK NEW YEARS EVE?  This game is at freaking noon, god damn it.  Dude is blowing up mostly because of his size (6'6), his competition in regards to the draft, and a solid stat line.  He does get to play against a 5-3 SEC team, can you guess who?  Vandy and is +7.  Glennon I may want in the second round.
Damn Trevone Boykin is only a freshman? Nevermind...

Matt Barkley, Senior, USC
Ever hear of him?  Unfortunately they have to play freaking GA Tech on New Years eve and even the players don't want to play.  Barkley may be drafted early in the first round but there is zero doubt his stock fell this year.  The team as a whole was a major let down and Kiffin is partly to blame.  The game starts at 2pm and the Trojans are -10.

Tajh Boyd, Junior, Clemson
Plays in the ACC which sucks and he is small 6'1 225.  He puts up points (43 total touchdowns, 34 passing) and completed 66% of his passes.  Fantastic test against a good LSU defense at 7:30 on NYE.  If he has a great game I'd think he would jump early. Some how only +4 v the Tigers.

Aaron Murray, Junior, Georgia
6'1 210 and is likely to stick around another year.  Decent game on New Years Day v Nebraska.  They arguably should be in the Natty game but oh well.  I have waffled on this dude all season and don't like or hate him.  He put up 31 TD passes in a tough SEC (as oppose to Taylor Martinez for the Cornhuskers who is more of a run first guy but still scored a total of 31 TDs. Georgia is -10.

EJ Manuel, Senior, FSU
6'5 240 dude with an awful mustache.  Threw 22 TDs (4 more than last year) and completed 67% of his passes but lost to Mike Glennon.  He doesn't do anything particularly well even in a bad ACC.  Still, got to a BCS  game albeit v Northern Illinois (-13.5) on New Years Day.

Landry Jones, Senior, Oklahoma
The guy has seemingly been around for a while.  Prototypical size 6'4 218 (although seems smaller) and has started for four years.  Statistically very consistent it what was an up and down season for the Sooners.  Their biggest game of the season was an embarrassment v ND at home against a good defense.  Not in a BCS game but it is a post NYE game against an SEC team Texas A&M 1/4/13. +4.5

Collin Klein, Senior, Kansas St
6'5 226 run first religious zealot.  Had a bad L v Baylor and is a white Tim Tebow.  He ran for more touchdowns than he threw and has little future as a QB in the NFL. K State plays Oregon 1/3 in the Fiesta Bowl. +9 o/u 76.5

AJ McCarron, Junior, Alabama
6'4 210 not likely to leave buttt if Saban bolts yet again for the NFL (Cleveland?) who knows?  He hasn't shown a ton but then again he hasn't had to.  Their running game is stout and the defense is top 10.  He completes 67% of his passes and only 26 TDs 3 picks albeit the most completions he's had in a game this season is only 22.  Obviously they're playing against ND and they're good defense in the Natty 1/7 so "AJ" has a chance to show something. Bama is a surprising 10 point favorite.

(Tyler Wilson is hopefully getting ready for the senior bowl thanks to fuckin ass hole Petrino)

Teddy Bridgewater is a sophomore from L'ville (just for pat)


  1. Steve, Senior Writer,

    Impressive 2-3 posts a week (during football season) on a subpar sports blog where there truly is no other opinion or voice. Great insight though. He's not afraid to criticize one of his "boys"and rip off their heads just to shit down their neck. Comes off as too negative or maybe just as a self loathing contrarian. Enjoys the word gaudy. Entertaining nonetheless. Steve will pick five Week 15 games to either go 2-3 or 3-2 on the week.
