1. He’s the best QB in the Big Ten

Last, but certainly not least, Connor Cook has earned the distinction of best quarterback in the Big Ten — not matter what the media says about Cardale Jones or J.T. Barrett.

I think the race for the top quarterback in the conference in close, however, as it would be Cook, followed by Barrett and then Christian Hackenberg in third, if I were voting right now.

All of the previous reasons lead up to this one. He’s the best quarterback in the conference that is home to the defending national champion. That’s a pretty high honor, if you ask me.

The one thing that will need to be improved this offseason heading into next month’s campaign opener is Cook’s accuracy. He has completed just 58 percent of his passes over the last two years and that’s kind of surprising seeing as his numbers are so solid with very few interceptions.

Connor rarely makes a silly mistake, besides the bonehead interception in the fourth quarter of the Cotton Bowl, but when he does, he usually bounces back without hesitation.

Michigan State has a real shot of producing its first-ever Heisman winner in 2015 and if Cook passes for over 3,000 yards and 19 touchdowns this year, he will go down as the top passer in MSU history.
