When you think back to the best quarterbacks in UofL history, Brian Brohm is surely near the top of your list. He threw for 10,775 yards in his career, 2nd only to Chris Redman. His 30 touchdown passes in 2007 is the most in school history. In almost every major passing category in school history, you will find him in the top 3.
