Part of the Doc's Mid-Major Week.
You want to impress friends, workers and comely bartenders with an under-the-radar fantasy/All-American/Heisman pick that will turn out to be devastatingly accurate in December, but who? As usual, your best option this fall is to mine the tried-and-true genre of "obscure quarterback with mind-boggling statistics against mostly terrible defenses."
In 2010, that means four names: Scrambly Middle Tennessee senior Dwight Dasher; surgical Houston senior Case Keenum; loping Nevada senior Colin Kaepernick; and unflappable Boise State junior Kellen Moore. Between Dasher's legs, Keenum's arm, Kaepernick's versatility and Moore's consistency, they make a complete set of prolific overachievement. But if you only need one, we have to go to the tape:
There you have it: In a close race, the advantage is Kellen Moore's by a tooth. Don't let us or the comely bartenders of the WAC down.
