By The Numbers – Tuel Time

25 10 2010

Washington State sophomore quarterback Jeff Tuel is making big strides as a passer this season.  In fact – believe it or not – the young signal-caller is on pace for one of the best seasons in school history.

First is a look at what Tuel has accomplished this season.  Then, I forecast what he could accomplish if he stays the course in Setting the Pace.

Here’s a look at Tuel’s 2010 season By The Numbers:

  • First Pac-10 quarterback to reach 2,000 yards passing this season
  • 265 pass attempts and 158 competitions leads the conference
  • Has passed for 200+ yards in all eight games this season (WSU combined for seven such performances the last two seasons)
  • Is the only Pac-10 quarterback that has thrown for at least 200 yards in every game
  • Tuel’s 14 touchdown passes this season are almost as many as WSU has thrown for as a team in the previous two years combine (17).
  • QB efficiency rating is higher the Jake Locker’s (134.7 to 131.4)

Setting the Pace:

  • On pace to break WSU’s all-time record for passing yards as a sophomore (Tuel’s pace: 3,050 yards; Record: 2,891 yards by Alex Brink in 2005)
  • On pace to complete 237 passes, which would rank 4th all-time in school history and surpasses any mark that Jason Gesser, Ryan Leaf or Jack Thomposon put up in their careers.
  • On pace to become just the sixth quarterback in school history to pass for more than 3,000+ yards in a season (The others: Jason Gesser (twice), Ryan Leaf, Alex Brink, Timm Rosenbach and Drew Bledsoe)
