Judging by passer rating this morning, I’m thinking nah.
Tua and Jake are on a level of their own (well, Tua’s on a different level from everyone else, but work with me here). Ta’amu’s passer rating is respectable, although his ranked (82.37)/unranked (209.45) opponent splits are more illustrative of the season he’s having.
The rest is just a giant pile of mediocrity, or worse. 130 is considered average, and the conference has five starters — including preseason Heisman candidate Jarrett Stidham — currently on the wrong side of that. Nick Fitzpatrick, also touted coming into the season, is below the Mendoza Line at a paltry 103.86.
From a national perspective, the conference has two of the top four quarterbacks, but from there, it’s only posting two more in the top fifty. A sign of conference strength this ain’t.
