First, I know Ware won the Heisman, but I would say Keenum is the best QB ever to put on the scarlet red and albino white. Ware played in the SWC and benefited from that in Heisman voting. Keenum was no less worthy in a day and age where ESPN controls everything.
Second, did Kevin Kolb achieve more than Greg Ward Jr.?
I love what Kolb did at UH. He was badly needed at a time where UH needed a player to latch on to and resurrect the program, but in the end, he was 26-24 as a starter, he had a 3-8 season, and only one conference championship. He was 0-3 in bowls, but led us to a 10 win season his Senior year. He was 2nd in almost all the common QB stats behind Keenum. In my opinion, very deserving.
Ward Jr. was 28-6 as a starter, one conference championship, he was 2-1 in bowl games, and we can’t ignore that one of those was a NY6. He is ahead of Andre Ware for career passing yards, he ranks in the top 10 in rushing yards at UH - not for a QB, but all-time including RBs - he is tied for first with Bryce Beall in rushing TDs at 39, he is 3rd behind Kolb and Keenum for total yards, and finally, he is only 2 TDs behind Klingler at 4th place for total TDs.
Kolb should be up there, but so should Ward. He is equally deserving.
I also agree Danny Davis should be up there as well even though he didn’t have the gaudy numbers.
