The thing which just bugs me is that Keenum broke this record playing in CUSA, where as when Kellen Moore breaks Colt McCoy's record of wins, everybody will say its because he played in the WAC/MWC.

I wouldn't sweat that, because the other side of the argument that your average SEC/Big 12/Big 10 hugger won't think of is that Moore and Keenum had lesser talent around them to put up those numbers with.

Anything to disguise the fact that the SEC is Bama, LSU and 10 relative scrubs...same with the Big 12 getting mopped up by the Oklahoma schools.

Case has done well and should get a visit to New York. With that said it has mainly been against CUSA, so its not like Pat Patterson was playing CB against him. But CUSA has some decent teams and to throw that many TDs is still an accomplishment. Will he play on Sundays? He might get a clipboard for a few years.

I certainly wouldn't discredit Harrell in any way whatsoever, but Keenum has really only had three full years as the starter. He played in 2007 but was splitting time with a competitor and blew out his knee in the UCLA game last year. Maybe 3.5 years...
