    Media Poll released

    #1 Stanford (24) 186
    #2 UCLA (19) 180
    #3 USC (12) 173
    #4 Washington (8) 163
    #5 Oregon (1) 132
    #6 Utah (2) 127
    #7 WSU 112
    #8 UofA 87
    #9 ASU 85
    #10 Cal 67
    #11 CU 63
    #12 OSU 33

    Voters I think are severely discounting WSU, although that will depend on the health of Falk.

    Potentially.

    Stanford should dominate. They don't have a QB yet, but with their lines and McCaffery, they will be a force this year.
    UW has a lot of potential, but we will see.
    UO, same as UW. Their QB situation is not inspiring.
    WSU could be really good, a lot is riding on their QB's brain still functioning.
    Cal, could be good a lot is riding on Webb being legit. (Hoping he isn't)
    OSU is going to be bad. Really bad.

    I don't really see how you could say Stanford should dominate though, they lost a ton of players and despite recruiting well they should still have trouble replacing all of that. Oregon picked up a QB with a Bama offer and their offense is simple to run so that looks fine and Washington is actually the favorite to win the conference in most betting circles. The fact that WSU will likely finish 4th is very telling IMO.

    Their lines are their biggest question mark. Those lost 3 starters on the OL, two of whom were 1st team Pac12. They only return 2 DL who saw the field last year, and one of the guys only had 2 tackles.

    Stanford is probably the only team in the conference that can win Pac-12 games with the ground game and they probably have the best OL and the best RB in the conference if not the nation. (To JR Ewing, did the really lose that many lineman? Interesting. Seems everyone is talking about how good their lines are going to be)

    Thought Oregon was going with Dakota Prukop, the Montana State transfer. Either way the other options are an unproven sophomore or a true freshman. QB is going to be a ride for them.

    UW is a good pick imo, but there status is all about their potential living up to its billing.

    WSU again depends on Falk. Leech let him get his head scrambled last year. That team without a good QB is not very scary.

    Yeah Stanford lost a lot of lineman but they pick up blue chip lineman like it's nothing. I'm not saying they won't be good but I just don't think they are going to dominate Washington and Oregon. Oregon had so many injuries last year and Prukop was recruited as a grad transfer to Bama before he committed to Oregon.

    Totally agree about Washington being all potential but they have a great QB and a ton of experience in their two deep from mostly sophomores last year.

    They got stupid lucky last year. Pick the most dinged up team for any given week, and they were playing Wazzu.

    Not exactly how I imagined us being on the front page of ESPN this morning, but it's much better than the alternative.

    Sefo says he's down to 235 lbs (from 250 lbs last year). That's good to hear, although his QB off tackles might not be as effective!

    UCLA linebacker Jayon Brown, whose Bruins have been pushed to the limit in their last two meetings by Colorado, smiled when asked if people are overlooking the Buffs.

    "Nobody in the conference is overlooking them anymore," Brown said. "They played us down to the wire, they played SC close … Colorado is a couple drives, a couple catches away from being right there in the conversation of winning the South. Their guys are really competitive, they have good coaches and some really good players. They're on the verge of breaking out. I don't think anybody in the Pac-12 is overlooking them."

    Chidobe: When asked what a "win" would be for this season, he said: "There are no more moral victories. Coach [Mike] MacIntyre isn't rebuilding anymore. No, we're right there. And we believe we're right there. A win this season would be just to win."
