But teams I thought would be good at the beginning of the season have been exposed in the last several games. Stanford seems to have lost their mojo and no longer dominates the line of scrimmage - whats up with that. It will be a challenge for Shaw to get them regrouped Oregon - this team seems to get worse every game. UCLA - cannot run the ball and cannot protect the passer. They have regressed since playing A&M tough. The rest of the league just seems to upset each other week to week - How did Oregon State beat Cal??? Anyway after some thought (non-scientific) I put the PAC 12 at number 4 mostly because teams are not getting better as the season goes on. Here are my rankings - 1. SEC - Hate them are not - they take their football serious in the SEC. The top of the conference with Alabama, A&M, Mississippi, to name a few are pretty salty teams. The West division looks to be really tough. 2. ACC - I give the ACC the nod here because Clemson seems to be getting stronger and I am really impressed with Louisville. The ACC seems to have a lot of strength at the top and balance in the middle. Still cannot figure out Florida State- Jimbo Fisher may have made the right adjustments. 3. Big 10 - Strong at the Top and really bad at the bottom. But they have a lot of teams at the top (Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin) so they get the nod - Michigan State is not having a good year and I am not convinced that Nebraska is for real. 4. PAC 12 - Already discussed. Washington and then a cast of thousands. 5. Big 12 - not much at the top Oklahoma got smacked by Houston.- Baylor is probably the best team in the conference but I doubt they go undefeated. West Virginia has not played anyone. The middle and the bottom are not very good. Texas has plummeted and KSU and TT are both below average.
