23: QB Season Rankings Part 1

In the first part of the BYU QB Season Rankings Extravaganza, Matt and Adam talk about Adam's BYU QB season rankings, starting with No. 41 and ending with No. 11. The links to each set of rankings is included below. Fascinating questions are answered (like which is Marc Wilson's best season at BYU), Matt questions Adam's sanity, and Kevin Feterik gets more air time than the rapture guy.

  • Intro: Explanation of the rankings, criteria, and process
  • 3:40 - Nos. 41-36 - a debate about the worst BYU QB season since 1974.
  • 10:15 - Nos. 35-31 - Jim McMahon debuts low, and the Feterik discussion begins.
  • 19:05 - Nos. 30-26 - More Feterik, Steve Young shows up.
  • 27:45 - Nos. 25-21 -  Ty Detmer appears, and who's the godfather ob BYU QBs: Gifford Nielsen or Gary Shiede?
  • 37:10 - Nos. 20-16 - Steve Sarkisian, John Beck, and Marc Wilson are discussed in their lesser seasons
  • 47:15 - Nos. 15-11 - This is where Adam's sanity is questioned, and it's all around Beck in 2006

Next time we'll talk about the top 10. Enjoy all the nostalgic BYU talk as we get psyched for the 2011 season.
