Zac Robinson: The Forgotten Big 12 South Quarterback (For Now)

Keeven KuateContributor INovember 23, 2008


Who Am I?

Through 11 games, I have one fewer TD passes and nine fewer rushing yards than Tim Tebow, to go along with my six rushing TDs.

I have played the No. 1, 2, and 3 teams in the country and still have another No. 3 team to play this year.

I play in the division of a BCS conference with three Heisman Hopefuls (Sam Bradford of Oklahoma, Colt McCoy of Texas, and Graham Harrell of Texas Tech).

Yup, my name is Zac Robinson, and I have led the Oklahoma State Cowboys to a 9-2 record while passing for 21 TDs and rushing for another six this year.

The Oklahoma State QB is 1-2 against the top three teams, and has to play arch-rival Oklahoma, who just embarrassed former No. 2 Texas Tech 65-21 last night.

The victory over Missouri, was that lone win and Missouri won the Big 12 North, which just shows how stacked the Big 12 South really is.

Zac Robinson definitely has had to play one of the toughest schedules in the country and still is having a career season. Just a junior, if Zac Robinson decides to return for his senior campaign, he will be among the Heisman hopefuls for the 2009 season.

That won't be any easier, too, as Colt McCoy is staying in Austin and many underclassmen will shine. 

Zac Robinson has a bit of an advantage, in my opinion, against most of the competition next year. How many QBs can claim to have played as many top ranked teams, that will return for 2009? Just him. That is just something to consider.

As for now, Zac Robinson remains as the fourth-best QB in the Big 12 South. He will have his time to shine, and it could start early, as he can upset the BCS National Championship hopes of the rival Sooners with a win next weekend, which would confirm what I am saying right now. 

I'd place a small wager on him to win the Heisman next year, but I don't want to jinx it. See you in New York in 2009, Zac!
