I just had lunch with a guy I know who is an MSU fan. He was babbling on about how bad our QBs are going to be this year. So, I bet him that our QBs would have more total yards (he even clarified it as rushing&passing) this coming year than MSUs QBs.
I just got back and looked at statistics from last year. Passing we had 1718 yards and rushing we had 293 (not counting Feagin) for a total of 2011 yards.
MSU had 2773 passing yards, -55 rushing yards, and 2718 total yards. Thats about 700 more yards than our QBs last year.
My question is, do you think I will end up winning this bet? I think that having a QB that can run the read-option properly, throw accurate passes, and scramble out of a collapsing pocket to gain yards instead of lose them will more than make up those 700 yards. What do you guys think?
