    Flynn is a backup QB on the Bills now. Ponder lost his starting job to Josh Freeman. And Foles just got a concussion. By the time he's ready to play again, Vick may have taken his job back.

    Like... 2 of those QB's played in the Big 12, and one of them was a WR most of his career.

    Fascinating, for some reason I'll still take a Pennsylvania kid any day of the week.

    Texas HS's have gone crazy over the same offenses you looooove to lambast in the Big 12, and they put QBs into DI and the NFL every year. It's been trending that way since Southlake and others around 2000.

    A spread offense from the Big 12, via CUSA (and formed under the mighty Joe Tiller before that), has destroyed the SEC for 2 years now. Who's playing pee-pee games again?
