I probably should have added one Curtis Painter to Legg’s proteges picked in the NFL draft (6th round, Colts). Legg was co-coordinator during Painter’s sophomore and junior seasons, and Painter posted these stats — 671-of-1,099, 7,831 yards, 51 TDs, 30 ints. NCAA passer rating was good but not super … 130.76.
Which got me to looking at Cato’s rating after four games … that’s 147.7, 39th in the country. Something you may not have considered: In 3 games vs. FBS foes, he was most efficient at Rice (28-of-39, 259 yards, 2 TDs, 0 int).
