Introducing the USCFootball.com QB-Rating
Back in 2009, USCFootball.com was looking for a way to breakdown USC's quarterback battle between Aaron Corp, Mitch Mustain and Matt Barkley. That spring we developed the USCFootball.com QBR or Quarterback Rating. We followed every throw each of the three quarterbacks made, plugged the numbers into our custom formula and gave Trojan fans something else to consider as the battle waged on.
We had Barkley as the leader when spring ball concluded, but Pete Carroll named Corp the starter heading into fall.
When fall camp kicked off, we continued tracking the QBR until Corp went down with a knee injury. Again, we had Barkley ahead of Corp according to the QBR. Barkley continued to impress the coaches and ended up starting for the next four years.
With a new battle brewing between Cody Kessler, Max Wittek and Max Browne, we decided to bring back the QBR and track each player's progress.
