    [​IMG]Oregon was picked to win the North Division and USC to win the South in the inaugural Pac-12 media poll.

    And the Ducks were tapped to win their third consecutive conference title.

    Here's how things stacked up:

    North (first-place votes)

    1. Oregon (29)... 239

    2. Stanford (13)... 220

    3. Washington... 142

    4. Oregon State... 120

    5. California... 110

    6. Washington State... 51

    South (first-place votes)

    1. USC (24) ... 230

    2. Arizona State (13)... 207

    3. Utah (4)... 170

    4. Arizona (1)... 140

    5. UCLA ... 89

    6. Colorado... 46

    Of course, picking USC to win the division doesn't figure in the Pac-12 title game. If this is the correct finish, then Arizona State would play Oregon for the title.

    The media poll has picked the correct champion in 27 of the previous 50 poll, including 10 of the last 11. The Ducks were picked to win in 2010. They also won the title in 2009, when USC was the media selection.

    Oregon was picked by 28 voters to win the title game. Stanford was picked by 11 and Arizona State by three.

    Ouch. Least votes of all teams.

    Not surprising. We've pretty well sucked the last five years. If I were objective, I'd vote us last, too. I'm not objective, so I think we're better than that, but I can totally understand their reasoning.

    not a lot of faith in the old Rickster, either.

    I have a feeling that Utah finishes 2nd in the South and goes to the CCG.

    It will be interesting to see how Utah handles a more rigorous schedule from week to week.

    I am still unconvinced that the USC staff can actually coach.

    ASU is talented but can they finally harness it?

    U of A could be good.

    Oregon is under a cloud of suspicion so it will be interesting to see if anything happens to that staff.

    Stanford has talent but a new head coach. Who knows what to expect although their system will remain unchanged.

    Lots of uncertainty. It should be an awesome inaugural Pac 12 season!
