PART 4 OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREVIEW: PAC 12

Q&A

Q: Stanford has beaten Oregon 2 years in a row why do you have Oregon winning?

A: Marcus Mariota is one of if not the best quarterback in the country and he has 5 returning offensive lineman making them one of the most dangerous offense in the nation the defense has some question marks with Nick Aliotti gone but Jim Thorpe award candidate Ifo Ekpre-Olomu should lead this defense. Stanford on the other hand, have lost key personnel on the o-line and in their linebacking corps. The Cardinal will reload but it will be 2015 when they can contend for a national title again.

Q: Can Washington contend for 2nd in the North?

A: QB prospect Cyler Miles is the future for Washington and with five returning o-lineman three of which where honorable mention all-pac-12. The defense returns seven starters and throw in some question marks for Stanford and Chris Peterson will be able to contend in his first year.

Q: UCLA undefeated? Their schedule is tough.

A: It is but they get Stanford and Oregon at home, opposed to last year when they were away in back to back weeks. Brett Hundley is one of the better QB’s in the country and with a coaching change at USC and a weak D for Arizona  State the future is now for the Bruins.

Q: Arizona has a huge question mark at QB but if they can find a gem can the Wildcats contend for a South title?

A: BJ Denker, a surprise to start led Arizona to an 8-5 season. So I wouldn’t be surprised if they could, they have a strong group of receivers and a great offensive line so the learning curve w0n’t be as long. The defense has improved under RichRod with Scooby Wright and Jonathan McKnight leading, but there is a huge hole at runningback with Ka’Deem Carey gone. Can this team challenge for a big bowl? Yes. A Pac-12 title though? NO

Q: Who is ur sleeper in pac-12 plz answer?

A: Sean Mannion can lead this team, he was superb last year with 4,662 yards and 37 touchdowns. If Storm Woods can stay healthy and the new offensive line can keep Mannion on his feet. The defense returns 6 starters so that should be solid. Road games vs Stanford and USC and the season-finale vs Oregon will be tough so we will see.
