Here is last years list:
2009's Best Mid-Major Quarterbacks
Terrance Cain: Cain is now a senior for the Utah Utes. He lost his starting job against Wyoming in Utah's 8th game last year to true freshman Jordan Wynn. Cain had started the first 8 games, but was pulled to spark Utah's offense. Both Cain and Wynn had very respectable numbers last year. Cain is set to start the year behind Wynn.
Omar Clayton: Clayton is a senior for the UNLV Rebels. As is the case with most of UNLV's players, Clayton was not a highly rated recruit. His work ethic put him in a position where he was expected to put up nice numbers for UNLV, as well as earn victories. Last season, Clayton managed to gain over 2,400 total offensive yards, as well as score 16 total touchdowns, but he threw 12 interceptions and led the Rebels to only 5 wins. When you consider that UNLV won 8 total games from 2004-2007, Clayton's 8 total wins the past two years don't look too bad. Still, he has yet to fulfill expectations, and will hope to do so as he enters his final year as a UNLV starting quarterback.
Andy Dalton: Dalton is now a senior for the TCU Horned Frogs. His year a season ago was stellar; TCU's only loss a 7 point drop to undefeated #6 Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl. Dalton has been fantastic throughout his career and will be great again this season.
Austin Davis: Davis is only a junior for the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles. Davis has been great for Southern Miss, despite his injury last year missing the final 8 games.
Max Hall: Hall went undrafted in this years NFL Draft. He has since been signed by the Arizona Cardinals. Hall finished as BYU's second leading passer behind former Cougar, 1990 Heisman winner Ty Detmer.
Tim Hiller: Hiller is another player that went undrafted in the 2010 NFL Draft. He has since been signed by the Indianapolis Colts. Hiller set numerous passing records at Western Michigan for the Broncos, including the all-time passing record with 11,329 yards.
Colin Kaepernick: Kaepernick is now a senior for the Nevada Wolf Pack. Kaepernick has accumulated many statistics and awards that will be highlighted later in this list.
Case Keenum: Keenum is entering his senior season for the Houston Cougars. Case has set a thousand passing records and could potentially become the NCAA career passing leader this year.
Dan LeFevour: Hailing from the Central Michigan Chippewas, LeFevour was selected 181st overall (6th round) in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. Although he had another unbelievable year behind center last season, his selection in the Draft shocked some. LeFevour ended his college career with 102 passing touchdowns, and 47 rushing touchdowns.
Ryan Lindley: Lindley is entering his junior year for the San Diego State Aztecs. I nearly left Lindley off my list last year. He hadn't really performed well, but playing for SDSU doesn't really do him justice. His numbers last year were decent (3054 YDS, 23 TD, 16 INT).
Bo Levi Mitchell: Mitchell has transferred to Eastern Washington, where he will remain a junior for this upcoming season. Mitchell was an interesting case. He was committed to Hawaii and June Jones. Jones left Hawaii for the Mustangs of Southern Methodist, whereupon Mitchell followed and started his college career. He did exactly what was expected of him under Jones: throw the football. He had 24 touchdowns his freshman year, but also led the nation with 23 interceptions. He was slated to have a better year last season, with all his receivers returning. Mitchell's completion percentage actually dropped from 57.6 to 56.0, and his ratio barely increased (12 TD, 10 INT). He was eventually replaced by true freshman Kyle Padron in SMU's 8th game against Tulsa (Mitchell suffered a rib injury and a stomach ulcer). Padron turned in excellent numbers in SMU's remaining games and will be highlighted later.
Kellen Moore: Moore is entering his junior year at Boise State for the Broncos. Moore has been nothing but successful (26-1, starting every game the past two years). Moore did not disappoint Bronco fans last season, taking them to the Fiesta Bowl against TCU (a rematch of 2008's Poinsettia Bowl) and winning 17-10, completing an undefeated year at 14-0.
Tyler Sheehan: Sheehan is another quarterback who went undrafted in the 2010 NFL draft. He was signed by the Houston Texans shortly following the Draft. He managed to score 31 total touchdowns for the Bowling Green State Falcons last season, whilst throwing just 7 interceptions. Sheehan left BGSU as their second all-time leading passer (10,117 YDS), only 163 yards behind Brian McClure ('82-'85).
Rusty Smith: Smith was selected 176th overall (6th round) in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. Smith left Florida Atlantic as their all-time leading passer (10,112 YDS) and is the first Owl to have been drafted (FAU started football just 9 years ago in 2001. They were a FCS Independent until 2003, an FBS Independent in 2004 and joined the SBC in 2005). Smith was lost for the last 6 games of his senior season.
Trevor Vittatoe: Vittatoe is slated to enter his final year at UTEP as the starter for the Miners. Vittatoe had a mediocre season last year, completing just 54.8 percent of his passes. He did throw for 3,308 yards, but his touchdown-to-interception ratio was average (17 TD, 13 INT). After compiling 58 touchdowns to just 16 interceptions his first two years, Vittatoe was thought of as a top quarterback in the CUSA. An awful 4-8 season last year and hitting a spurt of trouble (http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/23/utep-suspends-starting-qb/) may position Vittatoe--and quite possibly UTEP--uncomfortably.
