Ranking The BCS Conferences By Position (PT. 1, QUARTERBACKS)

Brian HoodAnalyst IAugust 4, 2008

Much discussion goes into which conference is the best in the land.  Fans will defend their conference as much as their team in this era of BCS conferences.  While I will not argue for the strength of these conferences as a whole, I will attempt to distinguish the BCS conferences based on their offensive and defensive units.  I have not seen any articles do such a thing so hopefully this will be a bit refreshing to the readers out there.  Without further ado, I give you my BCS conference ranking for quarterbacks:


1. BIG 12

2. PAC 10

3. BIG 10

4. SEC


6. ACC

With a little insight as to why I ranked them where I did using a star system:

BIG 12:

5 Star: Chase Daniel(Missouri), Graham Harrell(Texas Tech)

4 Star: Sam Bradford(Oklahoma), Todd Reesing(Kansas), Colt McCoy(Texas)

3 Star: Zac Robinson(Oklahoma St.), Josh Freeman(Kansas St)


5 Star: None

4 Star: Jake Locker(Washington), Rudy Carpenter(ASU), Willie Tuitama(Arizona)

3 Star: Mark Sanchez(USC), Nate Longshore(California)

BIG 10:

5 Star: None

4 Star: Curtis Painter(Purdue), Todd Boeckman(Ohio St.)

3 Star: Kellen Lewis(Indiana), Juice Williams(Illinois), Brian Hoyer(Mich. St.)


5 Star: Tim Tebow(Florida)

4 Star: Matt Stafford(Georgia)

3 Star: John Parker Wilson(Alabama), Jonathan Crompton(Tennessee)


5 Star: Pat White(W. Virginia)

4 Star: None

3 Star: Matt Grothe(S. Florida), Hunter Cantwell(Louisville), Mike Teel(Rutgers)


5 Star: None

4 Star: Cullen Harper(Clemson)

3 Star: Riley Skinner(Wake Forest), Sean Glennon(Va. Tech), Thaddeus Lewis(Duke)

Any thoughts?

My next article will include the running back portion of my project. Thanks for reading.
