I wish logic was more prevalent on Tigernet...but that ain't gonna happen.

Connor Shaw is truely my favorite Gamecock ever. Really impressive considering all the greats that have come through lately. I hope this young man has a great NFL career and whatever follows.

I think you have to put Fuller and Petty higher on the list because of there leadership on the field , just my 2 cents.

Jeff was special...he was the kind of guy who worried defenses because he was so hard to defend running the option but was also a solid passer. He could dominate the field v. some teams and there was nothing they could do about it. Kinda like Michael Vick was in college.

We've never really had any other QB like that, but it doesn't mean Jeff was the "best ever", but certainly until this past season he was always at the top of most people's list. As we all know, things are so different now than they were in Jeff's era...Jeff didn't face the quick and athletic defenses week in and week out like we see today.

While we've not had many QBs develop as much as Connor did over his 3 yrs as a starter. Without a doubt, this past season he was more than a "game manager" and a legit dual threat weapon that teams had to plan for. Stand alone, Connor's Sr season is in a class of its own. I guess it could be said that Jeff was the best individual player we've had at QB, but there is no question that Connor is the best QB we've ever had at USC. The only thing missing from Connor's "portfolio" are gaudy total passing yds...which are obviously overrated considering the W-L records that accompany some of those yds.

Going forward, some of the things Connor did well, will be the standard for which we measure QBs in the future.

Best wishes to Connor. One thing that is not debatable is the fact that he is one of THE BEST to ever put on the Garnet and Black.

Connor Shaw, like Marcus Lattimore, and Michael Roth, exhibits what a true scholar-athlete should aspire to be. I want to thank him for being a part of the USC family.

Not old enough to have seen Grantz play but I've heard my Dad talk about him for as long as I can remember. Hard to not put Shaw at the top for all he's accomplished here. He's helped bring our program to unprecedented heights.
