If Lance went the whole playoffs without throwing an INT, he would become only the 2nd one at the entire Division I level to have ever done it: The only one? Matt Blundin in 1991 for UVA: 135 of 224 passing, 1,902 yards, 19 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, 60.3 completion percentage, 10.2 adjusted yards per attempt, 159.6 passer rating. I live a few miles from the high school outside Philly, Ridley, where Blundin went (I just found that out looking at Blundin's wiki page). Tua had 0 through week 8, but threw 3 INTs before he got injured.

This year at the I-A level Justin Fields is the tops with 252 attempts, 33 TD passes/1 INT
2017 Danny Etling, LSU, 275 attempts, 16 TD passes/2 INT
2013 Connor Shaw, South Carolina, 284 attempts, 24 TDs/1 INT
NCAA.org website wouldn't go back prior to 2013...but very few that have thrown as little as 1 or 2..

I'm sure its been done at the Div II & III level..

Big 12 QB who passed for 300 yards against a top 10 OU last year transfers with the belief he should be able to start at an FCS school, gets beat out by a freshman QB because FCS is able to recruit and develop B12 level talent.

Similar thing happened at EWU this year with a UW TE/LB grad transfer.
What do you mean by Big12 talent? Transfer couldn't cut it at a middling Big12. He was not Big12 talent.

Like I said.... FAIL.
Was he recruited by at least one B12 school? :check:

Did he start (or at least play significantly in) one B12 game? :check:

Iowa State went 8-5 last year is 7-4 this year and ranked 23rd.

Does 89 know the definition of middling? Probably not?

Trey Lance, based on offense yards/passing attempt, is the best QB in NDSU History.

He is 9th in the MVFC rushing but 3rd in TDs scored.

You can't get down on the guy from Iowa State because he couldn't beat out Trey Lance. May be the reason he came. To see if he could

Under Lance last years wide receiver corps had 14 catches and 199 yds. This year 92 catches, 7 TDs, 1,537 yds. He routinely uses 9 or more receivers/game.

In a 2 game stretch at the Fabulous Fargo Dome Trey Lance led the Bison to 1,359 yds in total offense.

It is nothing short of world beating. The best QB in the history of the FCS is emerging at NDSU. Not beating out Trey Lance is no mark of failure.

Zeb Nolan is the transfer in question. UNI would do well to have him but he wasn't interested and didn't give them a passing nod when he transferred to NDSU. UNIs starting QB is sitting on the NDSU bench! 8-)

Nolan is not on the bench because the FCS is bad, he is on the bench because FCS is good. It seems NDSU is always playing teams boasting a lot of FBS transfers.

I'm glad Nolan is behind Lance. Its another example of just how loaded NDSU is. Every position stacks up well. Its an amazing team to watch.

The fact there are even FCS fans from other schools stating publicly they think their team can beat the BISON is a testament just how good the division is. That's how good the BISON are.

UNI's starting QB outplayed the guy who beat Nolan out. I'll take him over Nolan.

You have him.

More proof how good the FCS is. Arguing about the Big 12 transfer vs 2 starting FCS QBs, both in the playoffs and one possibly the best ever. Thats 3 obviously very talented QBs.

Nolan was a 3 Star recruit, with FBS offers from 6 schools, including Iowa St, Colorado St, Toledo, Middle Tenn St, App St and FIU.

These two comments make an important point why the argument about FCS being down is a false premise.

This is understanding:

UNI selects a QB on the basis of one statistic in one game. As a result UNI gets 233 yds, 15 of 29, with 1 int and 1 TD. NDSU gets 145 yds, 10 of 18, 0 INTs and 3 TDS.

Using the single statistic to support the contention the UNI QB is better than Lance exposes faulty judgment and undermines the entire FCS is down argument because it is supported by the same type of faulty logic.

Gil on the other hand intelligently points out why Nolan is a very good QB: Nolan is a 3 star recruit. Lots of interest from everywhere in the college football world.

Knowing these 3 QBs are not alone and there are so many great players in the FCS the question becomes how many great coaches?

I understand the perspective of our back east friends. It's true there is a lot of bad college football back east, and on the west coast for that matter, but I contend it's bad coaching, the institutions and leaders, not the players.

Just because the best football is being played in the middle of the country where it's true conservative strength lies and is represented on the field by upstanding young men, well coached, well educated and respected by their community is no reason to run the entire division down.

Evidently Dakotans drag down the comprehension of other Midwesterners as it was obvious that UNI88 was referring to McElvain outperforming the ISU Qb (who beat out Nolan) in their head to head this year.

The Kalm comprehends.

Triple Dick is having a historic year and I can't compare McElvain to him. I would argue that one historic year is not enough to consider him for greatest FCS QB of all time though. He might end up with that honor but it's too soon to tell.

McElvain makes the MVFC All Newcomer Team (along with Trey "Triple Dick" Lance) and is Honorable Mention All-Conference. He may not be Triple Dick but I think UNI has a pretty good freshman QB.

I think he's finally found the right QB. Mobile enough to escape the rush and be a threat to run but with a good arm and keeps his eyes downfield even when scrambling. I haven't felt this good about a UNI QB since Kollmorgen was a freshman.
