Any fans from longer standing CUSA programs care to weigh in on some of the best years for a top 2-3 QBs group in the league?

I guess two years ago with Heineke and Cato as seniors and Doughty in his ninth(tenth?) season would certainly be on the list.

Yeah, we had 40 years of Case Keenum and nothing else really mattered, and the other dude from Houston, Kevin Kolb. There were a lot of solid players in all positions at all schools, but Houston QBs definitely dominated most of our time in CUSA prior to the latest edition. Bortles(UCF), Davis(USM), and Webb(UAB) are others of note. Jordan Palmer was a name of note at UTEP as Carson's little brother and did well there, but I felt he got rattled a little too easy and never got to elite status.

If you look at QB records in CUSA media guide on here somewhere it's all Keenum with a sprinkling of Doughty and Cato and Kolb.

I remember all the QBs you mentioned well, just wasn't sure about when they may have overlapped and when there may have been another group of three like 2013 or what 2016 looks like it could be.

I think Keenum, Davis, and Bortles all shared 2011, though Bortles was a freshman and either didn't play a lot or didn't impress much, based on stats. Of course, USM wrecked Houston for the CUSA CCG that year and killed their BCS bowl hopes. Also the year a barely bowl eligible Marshall and subpar UAB wrecked USM which kept them from climbing high enough to get a bid even after beating Houston. CUSA has always been cutthroat.

Probably Ragone and Garrard for Louisville and ECU would have been the best earlier pair to play at same time, but that was before we were here.

CUSA has always had a few very good QBs in the league. These are some that I remember that have not been mentioned. Paul Smith at Tulsa was a very good college QB, and GJ Kinney put up big numbers there also. Tulane had some very good QBs early in CUSA (Shaun King, JP Losman, and Patrick Ramsey). Louisville had Chris Redman and Dave Ragone that were both very good. David Garrard at ECU was special, and their QB in their last year in CUSA was very good. Hackney at UAB. Gino Gidugli at Cincy. And Lee Roberts at Southern Miss.

It's not clear how the QB situation at UTSA might turn out. Sturm might be the guy at the start or at some point during the season. He's got some talent.

The biggest problem with UTSA in recent years is the offensive line. That has been the weakest part of the team. We can't expect much out of the QBs until that improves (no matter who is back there).

Strum in not a D1 starter. He's a 3rd string at best.

Did I read correctly that Stockstill is 21 years old (about to be 22) and just going in to his Soph season?

He was class of 2013, committed to Cincinatti, changed his mind as he wanted to play for his dad and Cincy released him fromhis scholarship. Never having been part of the plan at MT there wasn't a scholarship available, so he greyshirted that fall and joined the team in January starting his eligibility then, he redshirted in 2014, making last year his redshirt freshman season.

Interesting chain of events there. Thanks

Is the Driskel listed at FAU related to the Driskel that played QB at LaTech last year?

Fairly certain that they are brothers.
