Apparently We Have A Type

You may remember Ryan Nassib as the SU QB recruit who wanted to emulate Matt Ryan. Well let the emulating begin because Nassib is officially on campus an in uniform. Nassib's arrival confirms an interesting trend among Orange signal-callers, one that Donnie Webb couldn't help but notice:
When the quarterbacks work by themselves, you're struck by how similar they all look physically. Maybe it's that profile thing. Quarterbacks coach Phil Earley said the entire group looks like it goes 225 pounds a player. He has jokingly told them if "it doesn't work out at quarterback, we're sliding you into guard."
In fact, when you actually break down the size of each QB, you find jarring similarities between them:

#9 - Andrew Robinson (6-3,222)
#4 - Cameron Dantley (6-1, 218)

#8 - Cody Catalina (6-3, 221)
#2 - David Legree (6-4, 214)

#16 - Ryan Nassib (6-3, 215)

We're not running the option anytime soon, is what you're telling me...


One note for Donnie. I know it's tough to stay up on all of the current linguistic trends...they come and go so fast these days. But if I could, I'd like to introduce Donnie to the latest Defense Against the Homophobic Arts technique...no homo.

Here's Donnie's description of the SU quarterbacks as-is:
Actually, there may not be a better looking group of players at one position on the entire team than the quarterbacks.
Uh-oh, homoerotic undertones all over the place. Say that while in the club and that's it...game over. Now let's see what happens when we introduce "no homo" into the mix.
Actually, there may not be a better looking group of players at one position on the entire team than the quarterbacks...no homo.
See? Much better. We're clear on the fact that there is nary a sexual over- or under-tone to what he's saying...it's just a declarative statement. It is you who has the issues with your sexuality.
