In the course of college football history, numerous programs have been referred to as “Quarterback U” and therefore celebrated as a breeding ground for illustrious passers.

But what criteria are used to classify a school as a top caliber QB factory?

Is it the number of QBs drafted into the NFL? Is it total Heisman Trophy winners? Is it Super Bowl starts? Or instead is it total years played in the pros and a gross prolific statistical resume?

What about considerations regarding timing?
