With all the media attention surrounding Colt McCoy and Sam Bradford in the Big 12, Zac Robinson struggles to get much attention nationally so I am here to shed some light on the Oklahoma State signal caller.
You may not know him, but defensive coordinators in the Big 12 sure do.
So who is Zac Robinson and why should you care? Consider the following:
In 2008, Robinson was one of just four quarterbacks in the nation to run for at least 500 yards and pass for 3,000.
He led an offense that averaged 40.8 points per game and 489 yards per game both within the top ten in the country. He had seven games with at least two touchdown passes and had five against Iowa State.
Zac was the fifth rated passer in 2008 and is No. 2 nationally in career total yards per play.
Against Oklahoma, Zac threw for 254 yards on 17-26 passing and 3 touchdowns and 0 interceptions, leading the offense to 41 points.
In comparison, Tim Tebow was 18-30 for 231 yards 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. The Gators only scored 24 against Oklahoma.
As a sophomore in 2007, Robinson joined Tebow as the only two quarterbacks in the nation to run for 800 yards and pass for at least 2,800 yards.
In short, Zac Robinson is special. Why he isn't on more people's Heisman lists is beyond me.
Zac Robinson will get a chance to showcase himself early in a nationally televised game, when Oklahoma State hosts Georgia on the September 5th.
If you have not got a chance to watch this kid play tune in. The Big 12 knows who he is and it is time you did too.
