In his latest blog entry ESPN’s Bruce Feldman shows some love to the Big 12 and Texas quarterback [tag]Colt McCoy[/tag]. Feldman is ranking his top quarterback conferences for the 2008 season and puts the Big 12 conference at the top.

Feldman loves the conference’s depth at the position and believes four QB’s have a legitimate shot to win the Heisman Trophy, including McCoy. It is surprising (and sad) to see the Pac-10 and ACC so far down in the rankings. The Pac-10 will bounce back quickly (especially if USC would share some of their QB talent) but I’m not sure what it will take for the ACC to rebound.

Check out his conference quarterback rankings below:

  1. Big 12: This is a clear top choice thanks to a lot of heady leaders who make smart decisions and have proven to be very accurate with the ball. The league has four guys with legit Heisman hopes in Chase Daniel, Sam Bradford, Graham Harrell and Colt McCoy. A fifth, Todd Reesing of Kansas, is as tough and as sharp as they come, although I expect KU to backslide some this year. Behind those five is plenty more talent that probably could merit all-conference consideration in any other league save for the SEC. In fact, 10 of the league’s top 11 passers return. Depth-wise, this is better than it’s ever been for the Big 12.
  2. Big Ten
  3. SEC
  4. Big East
  5. MAC
  6. Pac-10
  7. WAC
  8. ACC
  9. MWC
  10. C-USA
  11. Sun Belt
