From now until Aug. 30, AllCyclones.com will answer one question per day regarding Iowa State and the upcoming football season. Submit all questions via Twitter — just get at me (directions below).
@Trey_Scott3 Which number is greater: ISU wins or ISU starting QB jersey number during last game of season— AJames (@Wrigley_Ivy) August 1, 2014
Gosh, this is SUCH a good question.
I'm going to scratch "during" and assume you mean by the end of the regular season.
I'm tempted to hedge, with Sam Richardson (12) and even Joel Lanning (7) options at the position, and the history under Paul Rhoads suggesting that redshirt frosh QBs get their chance at the tail end of the season.
But … I think Grant Rohach will open the season as the starter and I don't get the impression the Cyclones want to play musical chairs again at the position, so unless he's horrible or injured, my best bet is that he wraps the 2014 campaign as the starter. Rohach is No. 3 and I think Iowa State's win column will eclipse that mark.
So, to answer your question properly: Iowa State's wins will be greater than the number of its starting quarterback by the time the final whistle blows Dec. 6 in Fort Worth.
Tweet at me whatever questions you have.
