Quinn would be higher on this list if he could have won the big game, but this quarterback destroyed 36 Irish records (10 career, 12 single-season, 4 single-game, 10 miscellaneous) during his career in South Bend. These include career pass attempts (1,602), completions (929), yards (11,742), yards per game (239.6), TD passes (95) and lowest INT percentage (2.43). His 29 wins as a starter tie him for the most in school history. In 2005, he finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting. Quinn led the Fighting Irish to two BCS bowls but lost both.
