Re: PAC 12 Football
Mostly, people need to remember that Luck never became hyped because of universe-leading stats or off-the-charts measurables. NFL scouts started drooling over him last year because of how he played the game and how well it translated to The NFL Way.
As for the bowls -- yeah, Oregon and Stanford were getting lit up, but Wisconsin and Oklahoma State lit up everyone in their own leagues, too. It was definitely offense vs. offense in those games.
Not all who wander are lost
