Being a good to great starting QB isnt easy. I guess USC is in the same boat as UT with "undprepared QB's stubling around" in the NFL with Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart, Mark Sanchez, Matt Cassel. Expecting a UT "cream of the crop" athlete to be great in the NFL is ridiculous.
Nobody is saying that everything is great on the 40 acres. But assuming that Colt, who was a 3 star prospect coming to UT, is going to do great in the NFL with the amazing UT coaching is a bit much.
