How'd He Get Here and What'd Rivals Say?: Remember 2009? Doug Marrone inherited a football team with a gaping hole at quarterback--Cameron Dantley and Andrew Robinson graduated, and the bench had an unproven Ryan Nassib plus Cody Catalina and Nate Legree.
The stop-gap answer was Greg Paulus, but HCDM needed more signal callers on his team. Loeb was the first quarterback to sign with team Marrone, kicking off a disturbing yet helpful trend known as Orangecoachamoritis, where to-be SU recruits fall in love with the awesomeness of the SU coaching staff and leave all other teams (Boston College, Ole Miss, Memphis) behind:
"With the new staff, they're so impressive. Where they're coming from and just everything about them is very impressive."
So in came the two-star recruit--says Rivals--and out went any normal guy's chances of picking up a girl at a party with Charley Loeb at it--says Meghin Delaney on Jerk Magazine's Blog and Sean Keeley on a site you may have heard of.
2011 Projections: Charley continues to be the SPIKE TV's Blue Mountain State Alex Moran reincarnate--backup the starting QB and get the girls that come with it.
