6 of those 7
I would add UCLA and UW to the list of potentials. Still no more than 6 out of 9, though. And forget about USC, UO, and Stanford. No-hopers.
I voted for CSU, Sac st and Utah
However if there is one more good possibility, it's ASU. They wont be very good and it's here
Stanford wont be nearly as good and will be a 6-8 win team, however you are correct, for us a no hoper. They just aren't in the same grouping as SC and Oregon IMO
You're falling into the same trap you fell into with Missouri. You think that just because Andrew Luck and a few OL are gone, that they're going to drop off a cliff. They'll win a lot more than 6 games, and probably more than 8 games. I'd guess they'll lose two games next year - UO and USC. Maybe UW, but I wouldn't bet on it.
I really don't think Shaw is a good coach. They still had momentum from Harbaugh last year plus a bunch of NFL talent at QB, OL and TE. We don't stand a chance at them, but they are not going to be as good. And there is no way in hell they are in the same grouping as SC and Oregon! No way no how!
Stanford is not a 6-win team in 2012. They have arguably the best group of RBs in the conference, they still have a couple quality TEs, and Ty Montgomery is a budding star at WR.
Probably not, but I think you guys are giving them too much credit. No way in hell more than 9 wins. NO freaking way!
How many excess question marks do you need???
On topic, I think Stanford drops off by 4 games. Luck isn't a good qb graduating. He is a one in a lifetime qb leaving.
Nice, I came up with 7 wins. :thumbsup:
8 wins for Stanford is probably a good bet. There is a lot more to that team than Andrew Luck though.
I think we can win any or all of the first six games, but if I had to pick, I'd have us losing both road games and one of ASU or UCLA, putting us at 3-3. That means we have to win our last three to get to six wins. Possible, but not likely IMO.
I came up with 4, and the middle of the season is awwwwful.
I could only pick 2 sure wins.
He was a lot of that team like Peyton Manning was a lot for the Colts. Harbaugh was also the real coach of that team and some more of that momentum will be lost. They also lost some OL talent and Fleener. I agree it will be about 8 wins, but my main point is they will be nowhere near an Oregon or SC this year IMO.
I think we're much more likely to beat ASU compared to Utah.
We're gonna beat both so it doesn't matter.
Will be interesting to watch. No denying that Harbaugh is a great coach, but I am a little surprised to see people so down on David Shaw.
TF is wrong with you guys. Stanford has an O-Line of 4* and 5*... 4 Scholarship QB's that are all 4*'s and they all sat behind Luck. 9-3 Easily.
It's as certain as death and taxes that we'll come home from USC and Oregon with wins. Other than that, I'm not sure.
THANK YOU! A man with reason! REP!
At least do some research before you post...
If we're going to get to 6 (obviously a big "if"), it seems a likely path would come in the form of W's against CSU, Sac St, Fresno, ASU, Arizona and Utah
Hopefully Wazzou. After that probably only three more. I just want to win a game on our road trip for once.
Texas has better talent and look what happened to them. It is not a sure thing
Just to save everyone the trouble of figuring out who picked us to lose to the lambs... it was me. With a new QB and secondary in their first game, I'm concerned that we make mistakes left and right and give it away. The D was far less than good last year and we lost a ton of experience. I know the lambs have a new HC and horrible DL, but after decades of watching this matchup I simply don't think that we can take this one for granted.
Plus, I've broken the jinx all of you would have put on us by unanimously picking CU.
wow... we could really start the season 6-0... unlikely but possible
If the defense does not show up for that CSU game, we are in for a very long season.
I picked the 1st two.
