Big 12 QB Play

In researching the previous post, and considering the present hype around Bradford, McCoy, Harrell, Daniel, Robinson, Reesing and Griffin, I decided I would do a little research on Big 12 QBs in the NFL.

Most Recent QB to Throw A TD Pass in the NFL (Year)
Baylor - Cody Carlson (1994)
Colorado - Kordell Stewart (2003)
Iowa State - Seneca Wallace and Sage Rosenfels (2008)
Kansas - Bobby Douglas (1978)
Kansas State - Michael Bishop (2000)
Missouri - Steve Pisarckiewicz (1979)
Nebraska - Bruce Mathison (1987)
Oklahoma - Jack Jacobs (1949)
Oklahoma State - Rusty Hilger (1988)
Texas - Vince Young (2008)
Texas A&M - Bucky Richardson (1994)
Texas Tech - Billy Joe Tolliver (1999)

Most Prolific TD Passer in NFL for each school (TDs)
Baylor - Cotton Davidson (73)
Colorado - Kordell Stewart (77)

Iowa State - Sage Rosenfels (27)
Kansas - John Hadl (244)
Kansas State - Steve Grogan (182)
Missouri - Steve Pisarckiewicz (3)
Nebraska - Vince Ferragamo (76)
Oklahoma - Jack Jacobs (27)

Oklahoma State - Rusty Hilger (11)
Texas - Bobby Layne (196)
Texas A&M - Gary Kubiak (14)
Texas Tech - Billy Joe Tolliver (59)


I ignored QBs who started at a Big 12 school and transferred out, like Karl Sweetan who threw 17 TDs in the NFL after playing at TAMU, then Wake Forest. Or that Aikman fella.

Steve Pisarkewicz 3 td's - You have got to be kidding me! Mizzou is long known for their QB play. Phil Bradley, and ...um, ...er, aha Chase Daniel.

I remember when the knucklehead St. Louis Cardinals (football)drafted Steve with their first round pick. What a disaster. I think Bidwill (owner) thought he could pay less if the player wasn't expected to go in first round.
