(Full disclosure for my first post here: I'm a UVA alum and am thus incredibly biased when it comes to our new QB. I used to despise the ST. VINCE-acolytes who believed the Texans existed only to offer employment for ex-Longhorns. But now that I'm stoked because my guy is the local QB, that probably makes me a hypocrite. So be it.) You all may already know this, but Schaub is 2-0 in Carolina's stadium, winning two bowl games there in college (over West Virginia and Pitt). So he'll at least be familiar with the building, if not the atmosphere. Though a ton of Mountaneers made the trip to the first game, so he's at least had a partially-hostile atmosphere in the building for one of those games. But not the other: evidently both Pitt fans had trouble finding rides and could not make the trip. But more than that, Schaub was the Scourge of the Carolinas during his two years as the unquestioned starter for UVA. His junior year--when UVA was picked to finish ahead of only Duke--he swept all six Carolina teams (UNC, NCState, Duke, Wake, Clemson and South Carolina), one of the few QBs to ever do that. He was hurting (shoulder) his senior year yet still went 3-2 (missing South Carolina due to the injury) with his losses coming in a memorable 51-37 shootout against Philip Rivers and in overtime at Clemson against Rivers' current backup in San Diego. So Matt's record in and against the Carolina's: a tidy 11-2 his last two years. I know, I know, it's not exactly the SEC East (well, aside from the Gamecocks), but still worth something. As for his play last week, it was definitely the Schaub I remember from 2002-2003: quick reads and quicker throws. At UVA, he made a completely green OL (D'Brickashaw Ferguson was a 235 pound true freshman trying to play LT) look competent by getting the ball out of there when he had to. The knock on him was that he rarely went down the field with the ball--one Virginia paper called him the "Duke of Dink"--but he sure looked decisive on those mid-range throws and the bomb to Johnson against the Chiefs. In any event, hope this was at least somewhat enlightening.
