Interesting ranking of schools’ QB situations heading into season

There is nothing better when it comes to sports discussions than a list.

A pretty interesting one came out today — NFL.com’s list of all 128 teams in major college football in order of the strength of their quarterback situation.

My thoughts on where UNT stands are pretty well known.

UNT just lost a sure Hall of Famer to graduation in Derek Thompson, who ranks second in UNT history in passing yards with 7,447 yards. Oh yeah, and he was named the MVP of the Heart of Dallas Bowl. UNT picked up just the third bowl win in school history when it knocked off UNLV behind 256 passing yards and two touchdowns from Thompson.

So, what does UNT have left?

The Mean Green returns Andrew McNulty, who threw six passes last year; JUCO transfer Josh Greer, who has never taken a snap in a Division I game; and Dajon Williams, a redshirt freshman who disappeared into the doghouse and missed UNT’s spring game due to injury.

NFL.com took a look at what UNT has on paper and ranks the Mean Green’s quarterback situation No. 121 out of 128 teams. UNT is ranked ahead of C-USA rivals Middle Tennessee and Florida International, which come in at No. 122 and No. 127, respectively.

UNT’s quarterback spot and defensive front seven are arguably the two biggest issues heading into the season.

NFL.com’s rankings further back up that point.
