Some of the best teams–and some of the top quarterbacks — in the country reside in the Colonial Athletic Association. They're all different, but they're all solid. We pulled the five top quarterbacks statistically and put them together in this poll to see what the fans think.
Would you go with higher yardage in a pass-happy offense? Or lower, efficient yardage totals with more balance with the run game? What do you think is better? How about a quarterback who puts up great numbers but the team is struggling? Is he forced to do more?
It's your call which quarterback is best, we'll just count the votes. It is election season!
The poll will close Friday at 2:00 PM Pacific, so be sure to get your vote in on time.
Here are our five nominees…[divider]
Kyle Lauletta, Richmond
The Spiders have been outstanding this year and Lauletta is a big reason for it. He leads the league in passing yardage, though he doesn't lead the league in pass efficiency. Look for him to finish strongly in the regular season and to lead Richmond deep into the playoffs. [divider]
Dan Collins, Maine
The Black Bears have been solid this year, winning five games so far and keeping their name in playoff contention. Collins has been very solid, topping the 2,000-yard mark for passing just this past weekend. He's been a big reason Maine has a winning record in a tough league. [divider]
Bryan Schor, James Madison
Schor hasn't thrown for as much yardage as Kyle Lauletta at Richmond, but he has a stronger running game behind him to balance things out with and he personally is a solid running threat (525 yards rushing). He also leads the CAA in pass efficiency (178.5), and he's nearly 25 'points' ahead of Lauletta in that category. Schor also has an impressive TD to INT ratio (18 to 3). [divider]
Steve Cluley, William & Mary
This has been a challenging season for The Tribe, but Cluley has been a warrior within the program by being a consistent threat under center. He's produced nearly 200 yards of pass offense per game. He has been especially impressive the past three weeks where The Tribe has gone 2-1. [divider]
Trevor Knight, New Hampshire
New Hampshire looks like a great choice for the FCS Playoffs, and Knight is a big part of that. He's been the steady leader all year and has added the running threat too (376 yards). When it comes to total offense, Knight is good for more than 200 yards per game. [divider]
