Vote for a quarterback to include in the SB Nation College Football Hall of Fame. The choices include Drew Brees, Ty Detmer, Tommie Frazier and Steve McNair.
We finish with what some argue is the most important position on the field: Quarterback. We'll give you the names and a very brief synopsis of their career, some of them drawing from the cases our bloggers sent us. You can do the rest. Politicking is encouraged.
We've got about all the variety you could want in this category: A quarterback from a middle-of-the-road BCS program, one from a midmajor, one from a national powerhouse and one from a Division I-AA team. And they're all excellent to boot.
This poll will stay open all weekend, with the full list of winners revealed Monday morning. (Also: a word from the commish on players who didn't make the list.)
