    Is UCLA that bad that they get 2 mentions?

    UCLA fans seem to think they're going to win the Pac 12 South though for what ever reason.

    Cuz they have a weasel in charge. I see them easily being in the bottom of the Pac-12 south if not the bottom four of the conference over all

    I think WSU will take the honor for one more year then it'll be UCLA's turn.

    Mistake made while editing ULH's list. However, yes they are bad.

    i'm ranking @Hawaii much higher than 11 not sure in place of whom, but for the sake of it....bowl team a year ago, they return an experienced (and good) QB that lit us up for a half and we'll be minus our two NFL draft pick DB's this time around....first game of the Embree era, on the road. Hawaii is a hit or miss like a poor man's Texas Tech with Leach and get you on your heels for a quarter or two and run off some points. played some decent football at times last season. had USC scrambling, too. hopefully, our renewed run game and "more physical" play at the LOS will let us take this game over, while i expect we give up some points.

    could be a real track meet, imo, and we are not yet a team that "knows how to win" ballgames...witness last year's 4th Q collapses against Tech and Baylor (2 absolute must wins @home).

    Wow, Ohio state at #4? Is this because of the suspensions and unknowns if the sweater will be there?

    Yep. Still will be a tough game, I just think the other three are tougher. The road schedule is brutal.

    They think that every year. It's sad really.

    A lot of love for Washington on this board -- not sure where that's coming from. I think they're going to have a hard time next season.

    So do I but the North only has Stanford and Oregon and I think Stanford will struggle after losing most of their offensive line. The North has UW, OSU, Cal, WSU, none of which have done anything recently so the middle of the North division will be really close so I don't think it matters where you place UW/Cal/OSU etc. Washington has too many questions at QB though to be considered a true contender. Replacing a QB selected in the top 10 is no easy task and I think UW will struggle to make a bowl without Locker. WSU will improve but will still end up being somewhere around 4-8, Cal I think will be anywhere from 5-7 to 7-5 and I'm not sure what OSU has now that Quizz is gone.

    Your schedule is wicked. Wow. I thought ASU had an impressive one with at Illinois and Mizzou in the OOC. At Ohio State takes big, brass balls, even if you got a little lucky with the timing of it.

    1. Oregon (most of their offense is back)
    2. @Stanford (Harbaugh gone will matter imo)
    3. @Ohio State (missing players, but that stadium is going to be absurd)
    4. USC (still USC talent level)
    5. @ASU (kind of depends on them, if they're hot we're in trouble)
    6. Cal (can't love our chances after last year)
    7. @Utah (road game plus a new rivalry, they might be beaten up from the season, though)
    8. @Hawaii (first game under a new coaching staff, long travel distance too)
    9. @Washington (the team itself isn't all that impressive imo, but the environment will be tough)
    10. Arizona (still has Foles, but their team is headed down)
    11. @UCLA (we better win this, Slick Rick and crew are all but gone)
    12. Washington State (we really had better win this)
    13. CSU (they're terrible)

    About Cal, if you study how Cal plays on the road (very similar to CU), then you might change your tune. Will be a tough game, but don't expect the same Cal team you saw last year in Berkely. Also don't expect CU to be that bad again, especially at home. It will probably be a close game with a good chance the buffs take it. If it's a blowout, the buffs will be winning, I don't see Cal blowing us out again.

    Agree. Cal has issues on the offensive side of the ball. They will be starting a new QB and no one really grabbed the job in the spring. They also lose Shane Vereen to the NFL and really don't have a great replacement. At home, the Buffs will keep it close.

    I also like our chances with Zona at home. They are so thin at linebacker a decent running team could really whip up on them.

    My rankings would be very similar to some here. What I am worried about the most is that bad feeling creeping into some of our players minds when we are in a tough road game. We get a few of those under our belt, we might have a better season than we expect.

    1. Oregon
    2. @ Stanford
    3. USC
    4. @ Ohio State (much uncertainty at HC & many playmakers out give is a shot).
    5. @ Utah
    6. @ Arizona State
    7. @ Washington
    8. @ Hawaii
    9. @ UCLA
    10. Cal
    11. Arizona
    12. Washington St.
    13. CSU

    Until we can prove road wins are possible, they get top billing.

    I believe Hawaii will be a very good test to see where we are at in terms of our road performance. Hawaii is tough in the islands, and it is a very long trip for the players. However most of the people that stepped up in the 2nd half to beat them at folsom are returning. I like our shot to when our first true road game in 5 years. Plus the added motivation from former players to get those bricks back in Dal Ward will be extremely valuable.

    11. Hawaii
    12. WSU

    I'm afraid we may be underestimating the Hawaii game given that it is early and on the road. It will take some time for this team to gel. The early games will be tougher in that regard.

    I expect Stanford will slip a little bit. ASU will be tough, especially on the road. Ohio State will still be tough, especially on the road. @Hawaii will be a tough game. They improved a lot last year and return a lot. USC is still USC, although I believe Kiffen is taking the programs south. Cal is over-rated. Arizona is slipping imo. WSU is improving. Skippy is Skippy.

    Why the hell is Cal rated that high? They got worse as the year went on.

    1. Oregon
    2. @Stanford
    3. @OSU
    4. @ASU (could be further down depending on how they are playing, lots of speculation)
    5. @Hawaii
    6. USC
    7. @Washington
    8. @Utah
    9. Arizona
    10. Cal
    11. WSU
    12. @UCLA
    13. CSU
