Pac-12 QB's leading the way for the Heisman and doing well in AP rankings
In the last year of the Pac-12, 3 of the QB's are in ESPN's list of 5 Heisman candidates - Penix, Williams, and Nix, and honestly there could be more. 4 Pac-12 teams ranked 10th or better in AP Top 25, and both Pac-2 teams in the top 25 with Wazoo at 16 and the Beavs at 19. Will be a great finishing year.
It is too bad that the dysfunctional Pac-12 management screwed up the league - the board of Presidents and 2 Commissioners in a row. The best 4 to the Big 10, middle 4 to the Big-12, and lower 2 to the ACC. Two ranked teams, Wazoo and the Beavs, now make the Pac-2 and have some of the highest CFB TV rankings over the past few years (see articles on johncanzano.com that verify this). Go figure. It is not the size of the city the school is in, but the TV viewing that counts. Seems the TV bosses got that wrong............
Nevertheless, should be a good finishing year. I honestly don't see the schools going to the ACC or Big 12 being better off than staying in the Pac-12 even after the top 4 schools left. There are a whole lotta mediocre schools in the ACC and Big-12 and the next re-alignment might see their better schools moving to the Power 2, or............. A Pac-8, adding 4 excellent west coast schools, say Boise State, SDSU, SMU, and Fresno State (as one example), would have been potentially stronger than any type of Pac-2 merger with Mountain West, and might have competed with the Big 12 and ACC, but we won't know now.
I am voting for Nix to win the Heisman and the Ducks to finish 1rst in the league. But as usual, when there are 6-7 strong teams, they end up beating each other and who knows who it will end up being #1. Problem is, you need a fully dominant team with no or 1 loss to make it to the CFP...............
