The Verdict: Put Vittatoe in any other conference in the country and he would have been a first or second team All-Conference selection at some point over the past two seasons. Unfortunately for Vittatoe, he plays a conference in which the race to top 5000 yards passing often becomes the determining factor when picking all star teams. After redshirting in Mike Price's offense and earning Scout Team MVP honors during 2006, Vittatoe exploded onto the scene in 2007 and threw for over 3000 yards with an impressive 25-7 touchdown to interception ratio. Last year he came back and although he only hit 59% of his passes, he threw for over 3000 yards again with a 33-9 ratio. Vittatoe was plagued at times in 2008 by inconsistent wide receiver play (he had three tipped balls for interceptions in the season opener against Buffalo) and a late-season ankle injury, but his combination of arm strength and field vision make him one of the country's most overlooked quarterbacks headed into 2008. A passer built in the pure-pocket mold, Vittatoe has especially intriguing next-level potential because of his field presence and arm strength, which may be the best of any non-BCS conference quarterback in the country.
