Hoffman started all 12 games for Northwestern in 1998, passing for over 2,000 yards He transferred to Penn when the coach left, a new coach was hired and he was not the starting QB coming out of Spring practice. Hoffman was an excellent starter at Northwestern and at Penn.

Hopefully, Allen will be a fine QB for Dartmouth and benefit greatly from his Dartmouth education. However, comparing a starting Big Ten QB to a fourth string redshirt freshman who has never played a game of college football is a bit much, don’t you think?

Saying that he was a starting Big 10 QB is technically accurate.

The guess here is that he would have been a bit lower on the depth chart his freshman year if he was at a middle-of-the-pack Big 10 team or better.
