We've already looked at the numbers. Anticipation of college football begins with each conferences' media day. For the newly-knighted Pacific 12 Conference, the first media day is Tuesday, July 6. Among the hot topics? Expect much on the Oregon football scandal of Willie Lyles. Of course, we'll expect more on the additions of Utah and Colorado reshaping the conference into North and a South divisions. And how will the Wildcats fare?

So leading into Media Day, our staff writers make some wild, effort-filled predictions. First up, we took a look at our guesses for the final division standings by the end of the regular season (bowl games and the Pac-12 Championship not included). Today, we check out the All-Offense teams we expect by the end of the season. Sunday, we look at the All-Defense teams and finally, we'll make Coach of the Year picks on Monday.

 

***All-Offense***

 

By Alec Sills-Trausch (UofAlec)

QB - Andrew Luck, Stanford

RB - LaMichael James, Oregon

RB - Chris Polk, Washington

TE - David Paulson, Oregon

WR - Juron Criner, Arizona

WR - Marquess Wilson, Washington State

WR - Robert Woods, USC

OG - Ryan Miller, Colorado

OT - Jonathan Martin, Stanford

OT - Matt Kalil, USC

OG - David DeCastro, Stanford

C - Garth Gerhart, Arizona State

Offensive Player of the Year: LaMichael James

LaMichael is an all-purpose back, who whenever he touches the ball, is a threat to take it to the house. He will be on the best team in the conference and should be the focal point of their spread option offense.

Freshman Offensive Player of the Year- George Farmer,WR, USC

An incoming 5-Star receiver, he has the talent that makes him one of the conference's best. With quarterback, Matt Barkley, Farmer will have every opportunity to rack up yards and touchdowns.

Many people will go with Andrew Luck as the POY and I would have no disagreements with them, because he is no doubt a great quarterback. But James is so much more dangerous than Luck. James can get the hand-off up the middle, get an option to the sidelines or catch a screen wherever and then take it to the house. He is the Chris Johnson of college football; explosive, dynamic and Pac-12 player of the year.

QB - Andrew Luck, Stanford

RB - LaMichael James, Oregon

RB - Stepfan Taylor, Stanford

WR - Robert Woods, USC

WR - Juron Criner, Arizona

WR - Dan Buckner, Arizona

TE - Rhett Ellison, USC

T - Jonathan Martin, Sr., Stanford

T - Matt Kalil, Jr., USC

G - David DeCastro, Sr., Stanford

G - Ryan Miller, Sr., Colorado

C - Kai Maiava, Sr., UCLA

This is Dan Buckner's coming out party. OK, he already had some pretty solid success at Texas, but even a top-ranked Longhorn team won't help his number as much as the AirZona offense. Criner and Buckner will get their fair share of stats. Meanwhile, Stepfan Taylor is a darkhorse to be one of the better runningbacks in the conference and of course, LaMichael James will shine no matter what black cloud of a recruiting process was behind him.
