This is fun. I get basically an even split on no-doubters from each year. 2008 team also had the luxury of playing in one of the worst Big Ten fields in history. 

2008 no questions: Ohrnberger, Shipley, Wiz, Butler, Norwood, Odrick, Maybin, Bowman

2017 no questions: Bates, Barkley, Hamilton, Cothran, Bowen, Allen, Haley, Campbell

Toss ups: McGovern vs. Landolt, Clark vs. McSorley, Evans vs. Miller, Hull vs. Cabinda, Apke vs. Scirrotto/Rubin/Astorino, Williams vs. JJ/Thompkins/Blacknall, Quarless vs. Gesicki, Kelly vs. Davis, Boone vs. Gillikin

I also don't understand ESPN's made up QBR. Here are 2 McSorley games against Indiana, and their corresponding QBR:

16 - 30 (53%) for 332 yards, 2TD, 2INT - QBR = 88.6

23 - 36 (64%) for 315 yards, 2TD, 1INT - QBR = 49.3

Wut?

Being "better" and having better numbers aren't mutually exclusive. Also there's something to be said about taking what the defense gives you as part of good quarterbacking. Would we rather he consistently throw into coverage?

Didn't seem to be as bad with deep throws as some wrote/thought. https://pennstate.247sports.com/Article/Penn-State-football-Tale-of-the-Tape-Offense-vs-Indiana-108311835

(8/14 for all the yards and TDs on passes over 10 yards)
