    Bryce Pettyis the most gifted and prolific QB this year and should win the coveted Davey O’Brien Award along with the coveted Heismen Trophy. But I know the odds are stacked against him.

    Baylor has yet to play a team with a pulse. Their biggest problem is that they play in the Big12. Texas Tech is a pretender, OU is soft, vaunted TCU is 3-6. Florida State would beat them by 35.

    Baylor? What a joke! Try playing someone worth their salt. Baylor and OSU can go cry their tears in the same bucket…

    I would go with Jameis Winston, Jordan Lynch, and, Johnny Manziel in that order.
    (Hmmm – a year for “J’s”)

    Florida state would not stand a chance against Baylor. The only one that could hang with Baylor is Oregon. As for the sec ha! No chance.
