  • I can remember some of the games that Matt Jones brought us from behind and win a game. I can't remember which game it was but he did lead us to 2 scores in less than 3 minutes to win the game. He never quit.

  • Thanks for the education.

    How about that Lamar McHan TD/INT ratio?  Makes Ferguson's look like Brandon Allen.

    I guess that's why old school coaches liked to run the ball.

  • Yeah, I'd probably vote for Joe, too.

    Bill Montgomery used to drive my Grandma crazy! The way he held the ball right next to his helmet and stood in the pocket. Here comes the rush! LOOK OUT!
    Granny would be SCREAMIN' at the old TV, "THROW THE BALL! THROW THE BALL! THROW THE D--N BALL!!!!!!!!" She loved Bill, but he just un-nerved her.

    Joe Ferguson could flat out spin it.

    On a more modern front, I'm with those who pick Matt. I always said he was a freak athlete that there just wasn't a perfect sport for. He really WASN'T fast enough to start in the NFL as a WR, or physical enough to star as a TE, nor did he have arm enough to star as a QB. But man was he a freak of an athlete! You know, if he'd grown up out on the left coast, he probably could have been All-World on a two-man volleyball team. He was REALLY hard to account for by college defenses. So much fun to watch--just no tellin' what he might do on any given play.

  • Joe Ferguson.  I was in the stands for five of his Arkansas games.  Matt Jones was a close second, IMHO.

  • Bill Montgomery is the winningest QB in Razorbacks history. He was a great leader but an average athlete.   College QBís didnít have to be great athletes in the late 60ís.

    Ferguson had raw talent. No one spun the ball at Arkansas like Ferguson until Mallett came along.

    Mallett had the best arm of any Arkansas QB.

    Matt Jones was the most fun to watch.

  • Montgomery, Ferguson, or Calcagni, in no particular order ... any one of them would be a sound choice.

    Ryan Mallett had the best arm by far - he just didn't have any wheels

    I agree with all of this...except somewhere you must add Quinn Grovey.

    Thanks for posting. Its interesting.

    The stats dont take into account the coach/gameplan/receivers/strength of opponents that each QB had to deal with.

    Ferguson, for instance, had a coach who called pass plays only as a last resort. And when he did pass, his receivers often couldnt handle the force of his throws.

    Calcagni won the best game (imo) in Hog history. It helped that Roland played like a god and so did our entire defense.

    Matt Jones was the best escape artist we ever had.

    Mallett & Wilson both played for a pass-happy coach and their stats are padded accordingly.

    Stoerner played for an idiot coach.

    Point being, stats arent everything.

    As for the thread.... I vote for Joe, Matt & Ron in that order. I just never was starry eyed over Ryan.

  • I still remember eating dinner and Bud Campbell doing the evening sports and stating Arkansas had signed a QB from Shreveport Woodlawn, Joe Ferguson. They had won the La state championship, Joe had followed Terry Bradshaw at QB and landing him was a coup. First time I remembered a recruit being talked about on sports and of course you had to wait to see him because he would have to do a year on the freshman team.

    Iím only 34 years old and only started watching with Grovey and donít remember him enough to have an opinion.

    Without looking at the numbers, Iíd say Stoerner and Mallett are the top two that I can remember watching.

    Matt Jones was the most exciting.

    Tyler Wilson and maybe Brandon Allen would get honorable mention.
  • #36 by hvsupastar on 13 Apr 2018
  • I think Tyler Wilson had the best 1 season in Razorback history.  Throwing for that many yards and touchdowns while only losing to the 2 team that played for the national championship.

    Sorry I have to laugh at this.   Heck we have had QBs better than Matt Jones the last 10 years.

  • #46 by jgphillips3 on 13 Apr 2018

    That very thing really hurt his stats in the pros.

    Dmac never threw an incomplete ball.  Never happened.  I second this.
