    Did you see the first response to this, posted by one “Brandon Weeden”?

    I can throw a football over them mountains. Lack of arm strength is hardly my weakness, my heavy footed with a tendency to force the ball into tight windows if you want to get picky…

    Smart, controlled passer that lacks the great physical skills and arm strength for the next level.

    Wow – wonder what a “good” QB would look like!!

    So the article about Pete Carroll had some stats (34 turnovers last year; at 29 already this year) that got me thinking… What is the record, for OSU and NCAA? I couldn’t find a single season NCAA record, though the single game record is 13 so it’s probably outlandish. Maybe someone has better resourcefulness than me on this. I think it’d be interesting to track. HELP

    Draft Insider – huh?

    The Nielsen Network – fantastic!
