07:28 AM ET 10.18 | Of course, it's not unusual for college players to switch positions, particularly early in a career, which makes two notable moves for 0-6 Temple that much more compelling. Last season, Chris Coyer and Clinton "Juice" Granger split duty at quarterback, with Coyer starting the first nine games there and Granger the last two. Both players see themselves as quarterbacks and love to play the position, but both are playing elsewhere now. Coyer made the switch to H-back over the summer, adding 15 pounds of muscle. ... The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Granger, who had never seen himself playing any position other than quarterback, had enough confidence in his athleticism to think he could play receiver. As a result, much to his surprise, Granger found himself on the receiving end of a 30-yard touchdown pass [last week at Cincinnati].

I'm showing my age here, but it used to be an axiom in college recruiting to recruit all the QB you could because they were the best overall athletes, and you could move them to other positions once you settled on the definitive QB

I bet Jadeveon Clowney could sack either one of them.

I dunno -- she is kinda cute, just doesn't carry the, uhh, twin peaks area very fully. Possibly she is talented and has expertise in other areas?
