Football: Quarterback rankings, 2005-2007

Note: This post is a corrected version of the original, available here. This correction was made in October, but was back-dated to August 20, the original posting date. Only the 2007 numbers were changed between the old post and now, but it seemed right to put it all together correctly.

A few notes before the rankings:

I used adjusted net yards per pass attempt (which counts sack yardage, adds 10 yards per TD, and penalizes 45 yards per INT) for all quarterbacks with at least 112 attempts. As noted by Greg Layson, rushing yardage/TDs don't count here. This number was then compared to their conference average, under the assumption that some conferences are more conducive to the passing game than others.

Brief explanation: "1. 176, Joshua Sacobie" means Sacobie led the CIS that year, and gained 176 adjusted yards per every 100 gained by an average conference quarterback (in his case, the average OUA QB).

With that out of the way, let's see the complete rankings. Names are kept as-is to save time and highlight the...creativity of the CIS scorekeepers.

In case anyone's wondering, gaining 3 yards per 100 is quite unfortunate, but it was topped (bottomed?) by York's quarterback in their awful 2008 year, who actually got into the negative numbers.
