Is Tino Sunseri The Best QB In The Big East?

We've all seen the improvement in Pitt QB Tino Sunseri. But how does he stack up with the rest of the conference?

Purely by the numbers, pretty well.

Sunseri leads the league in completion percentage at 67.4%, is second in yards per attempt and TD/INT ratio, and third in touchdowns. He also has completed the longest pass - though, that's somewhat of an aberration since it was about a 1-yard throw WR Devin Street Street doing most of the work.

And how's this for an eye-opener - Bill Stull, by all accounts, had a pretty good 2009 season as a Pitt QB, right? Well, comparing Sunseri's 2010 season to Bill Stull's 2009, Tino is actually on pace to throw for more yards and touchdowns than Stull did. And his TD/INT ratio is better than Stull's was. So in case you didn't believe it yet, Sunseri's doing pretty well.

Still, Cincinnati QB Zach Collaros has to get the nod for the top QB right now - and it's not even all that close. His 20 TDs to only 4 INTs are pretty amazing and he also leads the conference in TDs, yardage, and passer rating. One thing that stood out when I looked at the league leaders is that Collaros has been sacked a league-high 21 times. You'd think anyone that's been under that kind of pressure would be forced into making mistakes and that's not been the case with Collaros.

One thing is certain, though. Tino's turning into one of the better QB's in the conference.
