Colt Brennan, the University of Hawaii's quarterback had a season legends are made of.
Colt completed the best statistical season by a quarterback in the history of NCAA football. This season he threw a NCAA record 58 touchdowns. He had a total of 5549 yards passing, while completing 409 of 559 attempts. His average passing efficiency was 185.96.
His great stats tell only part of the story. He was one of the runners up for the Heisman Trophy. The reason given for him not being seriously considered was that he played for UH and didn't have a tough schedule. Well let's look at that. Against Alabama in the opening game of the season he threw 350 yards, 2 touch downs and completed 30 of 44. Against Purdue he threw 434 yards, threw 3 touch downs and completed 33 of 48 attempts. His stats all season were very similar in every game.
To put the cherry on the top he had the 2nd half of a lifetime in the Hawaii Bowl against Arizona State. After a tough 1st half that ended with ASU up 10-3, Colt stepped on the field in front of national television and made a statement that Hawaii fans will be telling their grandchildren about. He finished the game with a 41-24 victory. In the second half he threw 5 touchdown passes, made 33 of 44 attempts and finished with a total of 559 yards passing.
We are all holding our breath to see of he will be coming back or going pro. If he comes back season tickets will be impossible to get and he will start the season as the Heisman favorite.
