Last season, Alex Rowse was undefeated as a starting quarterback, winning all five games he started. In those wins, however, he accumulated zero touchdown passes as the Bobcats relied on a running game for its wins.
This year, though, the Bobcats have utilized a more wide-open attack and Rowse has adapted readily. In the first six games – four of them wins – Rowse has passed 165 times, completing 106 (a 64.2% completion rate). He has passed for 1583 yards and an amazing 27 touchdown passes to his credit and has been intercepted just twice.
Rating quarterbacks has always been a challenge – so much a challenge that the NFL and NCAA use different formulae. Either way, Rowe's numbers are impressive – by the NFL system his rating is 130.13 and, according to the NCAA, it is 196.41.
