NFL Starting QB's by College Conference

While watching College Football this weekend and some spectacular Quarterback play I was curious if there were any trends as to what conference historically produces the best/most QB's. Since I am not employed to search through statistics the best that I could do was list the current starting QB's in the NFL and the conferences that they play in. What this showed be was basically the power conferences on average will produce the most QB's. There really is no major evidence or any one conference that dominates another, but would fairly say that big conference QB's are most likely to make it to a starting position. Although again, that is not scientific. Check it out.
