In his first year as head coach at Houston, Kevin Sumlin had a decision to make.

He had two quarterbacks, both of which had received significant playing time the year before, fighting for the starting job. The season before Sumlin's arrival, quarterbacks Blake Joseph and Case Keenum split time under then-head coach Art Briles.

But that's not Sumlin's style. He's a one-quarterback guy all the way. He declared a competition between the two and when the dust settled, Keenum won the job. The rest is history -- literally -- as Keenum went on to set eight NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision career records and taking the Cougars into the national rankings in two separate seasons, including a 13-1 mark in 2011.
