Right before USCs heavily-scrutinized 2022 college football season begins, what exactly are a few of the more interesting, provocative questions you can ask to a Pac-12 columnist and expert in the event that you had the opportunity?
We asked Jon Wilner of the Wilner Hotline a particular question concerning the Pac-12 Coach of the entire year race.
Before passing along Jons answer, lets be clear about a very important factor: We’ve already discussed lots of USC topics to the stage of exhaustion. Just how many wins will USC get? Will USC make the Pac-12 Championship Game? Which bowl game will USC head to? Those topics have largely been talked out. We shall still transfer an item whenever a new outlet or pundit makes a USC prediction, but thats familiar territory.
We wished to ask Wilner a brand new question something new, different things for Wilners latest mailbag column, that is published by the end of each week through the busier times of the entire year (or even more).
If Arizona wins six this year, Washington wins nine and USC wins 11, who’s the Pac-12 Coach of the entire year? @MattZemek
It wouldnt be Lincoln Riley it is possible to depend on that. USCs coach only wins the award whenever there are no other justifiable choices. (Pete Carroll won it outright once and shared it twice.)
In the scenario organized here, Jedd Fisch probably wins over Kalen DeBoer due to the turnaround orchestrated in Tucson and because everyone recognizes Washington was much better than a four-win team last season.
You can find always politics involved when coaches vote on anything.
And Fisch, as well as the merits of his case if the Wildcats were to win six will be a comfortable pick for anybody hesitant to prop up a rival.
