Andy Staples on best conferences, Heisman race and USC
Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples joined the show to talk about the Top 25 and preview the season.
Dan asked the best conference other than the SEC. “Big 12 for depth,” Staples said. “But at the top, Pac-12.” Staples said don’t discount how many good teams are in the Big 12.
Staples ran through some of his Heisman choices. Staples said it started with Matt Barkley and there are a lot of guys right behind him. “A lot of guys will put up ridiculous numbers,” Staples said. “It’s going to come down to who’s in the hunt for the national title.”
Staples talked about USC’s chances. He said it may come down to injuries and health.”Their best 22 can compete with anyone in the country,” Staples said. “It’s when you get to the second string you run into the issues.”
