Thing that made me go "Hmmmm..." #1

Looking through the cfbstats.com database, I came across something that I think is interesting.

Take a look at these two quarterbacks and look at their records for their first starts:

 

QB A: 25-33 for 319 yards, 3TDs 0 Ints 75.8 completion percentage, rating of 186.96. Team won 37-9.

QB B: 23-32 for 320 yards, 5TDs 0 Ints 71.9 completion percentage, rating of 207.44. Team won 47-7

QB A is Blaine Gabbert's stat line from Saturday's game against the Fighting Illini.

QB B is Chase Daniel's stat line from his inaugural start against Murray State in 2006.

What does it mean? I have no idea. I just thought it was fun to look up. I'm not a statistical analysis person; anyone who reads me other places knows that.

But if the trend continues as it did in 2006, then good things are on the horizon for this squad.
