College football fans had all sorts of issues with this ranking of the Top 25 QBs
Any list such as this is guaranteed to rustle some jimmies and, of course, this was no exception. How many of the comments were real and how many were just one college football fan trolling the fanbase of another is unknown. Either way, it’s very entertaining.
“KJ Jefferson? Top 20?” one fan tweeted.
“Where is DJU??” asked another, referring to Clemson quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei.
“#3-9 being in front of TVD is comical. But carry on…” someone else wrote, referring to Miami’s Tyler Van Dyke.
“Stetson should be top 10. Ain’t no way Miami or South Carolina fielding better QBs,” commented an obvious Stetson Bennett/Georgia fan.
“Serious question, how does Ewers go from 3rd string at OSU, to a Top 20 in the Country??? He has NO meaningful reps as a College QB. Why is he even ranked here???” pondered another fan.
“I don’t understand the media love and fascination with Spencer Rattler,” another questioned.
“Maybe you should have to have had one start to make the list? Lol,” laughed another.
