in my opinion, you simply cant discount the number of wins versus the number of games played. over the time that Dylan has been here he has more overall playing time than mauk did last season, even though mauk played more last season. however, that said, you cant downplay big wins over ranked division one opponents simply because a player has started more in a particular season. for a position as important as the qb, its all about confidence. confidence is not built by losing.
true but I'm using an extreme circumstance here. Obviously there aren't any qb's in the SEC that have gone two seasons without a win. But the question wasn't who's the most experienced, winning qb in the SEC? It was who's the most experienced. I wouldn't put your guy over Dak or Wallace for the record and it's got nothing to do with the fact that I'm an Ole Miss guy and additionally I hate State. But I'll submit at game time I'm going with them before I go with a guy who has been under center at kickoff only three or four times.
I'll agree with you that losing consistantly doesn't boad well for confidence building. Losing a game or two games motivates. If you never lose anything how do evaluate or measure your level of success? How does a quarterback evaluate a loss? Do they pack it up and quit or do they use it to be more dominant? I'll take a guy whose taken his licks and gotten back up and stepped on someones dick and meant it before I take someone whose never felt the pressure or pain of defeat.
