Passing 1446 yards, 12 TD's and only 6 INT's

Rushing 657 yards, 7 more TD's

He's on pace to have over 2,000 yds passing and possibly close to 1,000 yards rushing, which would arguably be one of the biggest years, statistic wise, in USF history for a QB.

He has exceeded my expectations this season.

that said, how he misses completely open receivers down field is still beyond me.

I'm sure the ball wasn't exactly dry tonight.  Not to mention footing sucked.

I think he's alluding to the fact he can be our first 2000 yard passer and 1000 yard rusher.  We've never had a QB go over a 1000 and if he does that with a 1000 yards rushing, it actually puts him in some rare territory.

My biggest thing with Flowers is he doesn't commit a lot of turnovers.  To me the that his huge.  I love the way this kid plays.

I was thinking that too. However, 300 yrds + rushing in the next 3 games? That's a tall order for a QB. I see him ending up around 3000 total yards on the season. A solid season for the offense we have been running.

I have been surprised by that. Also like how he doesn't immediately give up on the pass when he scrambles.
