He set the record for most pass attempts without an INT while throwing for four TDs tonight. Looking forward to getting back against a real opponent next week against Pitt.

Yeah, that was awesome. He got a nice ovation from the crowd there, but yeah, also looking forward to playing Pitt. These last 2 games haven't challenged us at all.

The only time this season they have played a legitimate team they kept him passing 3 yards down the field. Hard to throw an interception when you don't throw down field. It's a great record, but the way they use him makes it easier to get that record.

This streak started last year:

Against Miami - 220 yards 2 TDs
@ UNC - 280 yards 2 TDs
Duke - 220 yards 2 TDs
Maryland 190 yards 2 TDs

That is only a select few of his games. Like I said, we haven't played anyone the past few weeks but he was the best QB in the ACC last year. He regularly threw it 30 times a game. He's not Sam Bradford, but he throws it as much as any QB in the ACC and the passes that he makes are no different than any other QB. Not to mention we were somewhere around 11th in the league last year in rushing and were near the top in scoring offense at the end of the season. That has something to do with the QB...

I can't rip on him...I think RW is a hellava qb. Without him, the pack would probably be among the worst teams in the conference.

Ever heard of a guy named Mike Glennon? He's supposed to be pretty good...

I saw a breakdown of his passes on TV but now I cant find it. His completion percentage and number of passes over 15 yard drops off quite a bit. But I don't really watch State football so I can't make a valid point I guess.

Just a heads up, that Stephen Garcia feller is starting to get it.

I think someone told him he gets a case of beer for every TD.

Ask VaTech fans about their OC and I'm sure they would tell you that under a different OC, Glennon probably could have succeeded. Good college QBs are a product of their coaching and their athletic ability. Glennon has a rocket arm and one of the best OCs in the business.

As far as there being a drop off for Wilson when he throws it over 15 yards. That is the case for every QB in the nation and Wilson's receivers had a really bad case of the dropsies all through last year. It wasn't a reflection of his throwing ability.
