If you were to make a list of the college players least popular with their teammates, I suspect that Virginia Tech’s demoted starting quarterback Sean Glennon would at or near the top.
Skip past all the whining (and there’s a lot of it) to get to this:
… Glennon can only look at a drop-back passer such as Boston College’s Matt Ryan and wonder what might have happened if Glennon had equally good protection from his offensive line.
“A lot of people disagree, I know, but I think I’m pretty good,” Glennon said. “I really think under ideal circumstances, my arm can match up with any defense in the country.
“I don’t want to blame anything on anybody. That’s the last thing I want to do, is say I’m not playing because of the line.”
BTW, here’s Glennon’s stat line from his last start against LSU: 2 of 10 passing for 16 yards, 0 TDs, 1 INT. That works out to a stellar QB rating of 13.44.
