There are plenty of questions for South coaches, just like the North.

Starting in Tucson, Arizona has a quarterback competition that yielded few hints during spring practices. While B.J. Denker has limited experience and was the best healthy quarterback, USC transfer Jesse Scroggins was mostly sidelined with a foot injury. He'll join the preseason competition, as will touted true freshman Anu Solomon.

Colorado has a new coach in Mike MacIntyre, and he faces a major rebuilding project. The first step isn't getting to a bowl game. The big question with the Buffaloes this fall is will they at least be competitive in conference play?

While UCLA has a number of questions, it again looks like a South front-runner. So forget personnel: Have the Bruins eclipsed rival USC in Los Angeles?

Speaking of the Trojans, they have their own quarterback competition. Max Wittek saw action last year, and he has a big arm and NFL body. Cody Kessler played better in the spring, but he's more of a scrapper. There's also promising true freshman Max Browne.

Finally, perhaps the most interesting hire in the conference, non-head-coach division, was Kyle Whittingham bringing in former Arizona State coach Dennis Erickson to run his offense with Brian Johnson. Can Erickson transform that offense to Pac-12 quality?
