    Didn't read, but here's a list off of the of my head.

    Neuheisal
    Fouts
    Mark Harmon

    And then those 20 consecutive guys that won Heismans at USC.

    Who am I missing?

    Oh, Elway. ****ing Bronco fans.

    I think the list is more recent than you are thinking Orr. Really surprised that Aikman went to UCLA. The state of Oklahoma is really proud of him.

    Forgot about Aikman. Does Jake live in Boulder?

    Todd Marinovich, or whatever his name was, was pretty good in college. Chris Miller was highly underrated.

    Washington State put up some good college QBs too. Who was that mouth-breather who flopped with the Chargers? Oh, and the elder Bledsoe...not the one that D3H punched at the Walrus...

    I think I like Orr's list better than Bleacher Report. The bust you are thinking about was Ryan Leaf. How about Warren Moon from Washington? I think that guy was pretty good. Bleacher Report Sucks

    It's funny, I was thinking that Washington must have had a great QB but I couldn't come up with one. Didn't know that Warren Moon was a Husky.

    Aaron Rodgers, Craig Morton, Mark Brunell, the list just keeps going.

    That had a LOT of great quarterbacks:

    Moon, Chris Chandler and Mark Brunell all played there. Wikipedia has this gem:

    any list without Klatt in it is, well, not a good list.

    At one time, UW had Mark Brunell, Chris Chandler, Hugh Millen and Paul Sicaro on the same roster. All but Sicaro played in the NFL, but Sicaro went to Med school IIRC. Three NFL QB's on one CFB roster? Crazy. And yes Warren Moon and Marques Tuiasospo were Dawgs. Billy Joe Hobert, Damon and Brock Huard, too. And for the old school: Sonny Sixkiller.

    And if he played in Pac-10/12 then he'd definitely be on the list. :smile2:

    It is almost embarrassing how few pro quarterbacks have gone to CU.
