Flip,
Would you tell that to Brian McClure? :)


well...McClure didn't have the strongest arm...and he wasn't really athletic. Turned out to be a great MAC QB though



Didn't have strong arm? Are we talking about the same guy I saw throw a 60+ yd. pass in air as a freshman? That said, he took a huge hit, against Toledo, I think, that did affect him later .I honestly was shocked as he came back and played the following week as his arm was just hanging after that hit.
Education our Challenge, Excellence our goal. (look it up)

I thought back then that he threw a lot of INT's because his eyes saw the throw, but his arm got it there a little late.
It's not the fall that hurts...it's when you hit the ground.

All that yardage ranked him among the best QBs ever to play up to that point. When he graduated, only Doug Flutie had more career passing yards,
or something like that. I don't remember if McClure was invited to New York (he was a bit before my time), but he was in the Heisman conversation.
