OSU QBs in the NFL Dilemma

Don't get me wrong, we have had plenty of great QBs over the years, but none of them (with the exception of Art Schlichter) were ever expected to amount to anything in the NFL.  You have all of these other schools (e.g., Oklahoma, Stanford, USC, Texas, FSU, LSU, and dare I say it, even Louisville!) that consistently produce highly drafted QBs, but OSU never seems to be able to reach that level with QBs.

Why is this?  Is it that there isn't very much QB talent developed in the Midwest region? I guess some could argue that it's the style of offensive play (three yards and a cloud of dust) over the years.  But as prestigious as OSU is football-wise, you would think there would have been at least one NFL caliber QB come through OSU over the years. 

Here's to hoping UFM can fix this trend and develop a QB that can actually translate into something great in the NFL!
