A College XP of sorts...
It's not rocket science to realize just how many schools get a large percentage of their talent from Texas, but the Dallas Morning News has a nice article about just how many teams currently have star quarterbacks from the Lone Star State. Colt McCoy, Graham Harrell, Matt Stafford, Chase Daniel, Todd Reesing, Jarrett Lee, Brian Johnson...in all, 21 FBS starters and six of the top nine QBs on the Total Offense list are from Texas.

The spread of talent in college football is so large that sometimes it's hard to glean too much from the stats. In his latest Varsity Numbers installment, Bill Connelly explores the "+" concept, an attempt to even the playing field and account for strength of schedule.
