07:21 AM ET 05.10 | This has been quite a week for former Colorado quarterback Nick Hirschman. [Hirschman] said Thursday he will transfer to Akron, where he will be eligible to play this fall after receiving his degree. Hirshman, 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, completed 59.1 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and seven interceptions last season. He has two years of eligibility remaining. Hirschman, who earned a degree in sports communications in three years and was set to have his a graduation ceremony Thursday night, said he believes Terry Bowden is an excellent coach and he was impressed by Akron's facilities. He surprised some by transferring despite finishing the spring as Colorado's co-starter alongside Connor Wood.

Can't feel good about a program where the acknowledged "co-starter" (whatever that term actually means, but at best it means you will definitely play) at QB decides to transfer when the opportunity arises.

I note that the latest transferring QBs have more INTs than TDs.
