It wouldn't have mattered if Shaw was 5'6. He had cajones. I think that's the difference.

Most women feel that one inch can make a big difference.

True but a fat bank account can easily offset that 1".

That's the answer. If someone's retort to an argument is to name a few specific players out of hundreds, then it doesn't work. They're the outliers.

I mean, it doesn't take a physics wizard to figure out a 6-0 height throwing over 6-6 O lineman, even if they are engaged in blocks, is harder than 6-2 or 6-4.

And Shaw was amazing, but it was his legs and his brains outweighing his height.

An interesting read on the QB transfer situation:

http://www.thestate.com/sports/colle...137939798.html

The most notable part to me was this quote about McIlwain by the Scout recruting analyst who covered Brandon most heavily:

"The question I always had and I wanted to see how it would play out was, ‘Did he have the height to do it?’ He was going to be a dual-threat kid, but I still thought he was going to throw more.”
