Anyway, I regularly see people talk about how Spurrier is a QB "guru" and how his presence should attract a lot of big-time players or how a QB who has learned under Spurrier should be considered an attractive prospect at the next level.
I'm honestly not saying it's not true, but I just don't know where it's coming from. Who have been successful QBs who have been considered Spurrier guys? And when you talk about success, does it mean only in college or college and pro?
I can only think of one off the top of my head who has had any success at the professional level, and even it was limited, and that's Rex Grossman. So please help me out. Thanks.
One of the big knocks on Spurrier QB's has been the lack of success on the pro level, but he has had many QB's who have had success in college, most notably Danny Wuerffel (won the Heisman) and Rex Grossman (finished 2nd in the Heisman voting).
