Oregon looks F***ing good.

I also think this is a qb's conference.

Nick Foles, Barkley, Luck and Locker.

This is gonna be a rough year for USC especially since their defense is terrible.

Widely regarded as the 8th or 9th team in the pac 10, Cal it definitly under the radar this year. I'm willing to bet a lot of money they finish better then where they're projected, but yes, it's going to be rough in the Pac 10 this year.

I love how Oregon plugs any RB into that offense and the guy ends up a stud.

There's some big names at the QB position, but I always check the defense and running game first.

Oregon St. showed they belong in the top 20 but blew their comeback on the center snap over Katz' head -- 1st game suicide jitters, not on the same pg. The Rogers brothers did their NFL audition, maybe b/c they're next to padded giants but they looked more 5-7 than 5-9.

Jaquizz was being called the Next DeSean Jackson but he might actually be smaller, hard to imagine a flea-sized RB like him getting it done at RB between the tackles in the NFL. He could be drafted as a KR exclusively

True freshman WR at Cal you're going to hear more about is this guy:

If ppl want to heavily criticize SC for a horrid defensive display, that's fine. But let's not forget the equally awful performance put on by the UCLA front seven (aside from Ayers), who apparently haven't visited a tackling clinic lately, either. Sorry, I'm a bitter Trojans fan, but I felt the urge to point this out. :)

Ha, you're BITTER? SC is coming off one of the most incredible runs in college football history. Cal, despite all the talent that has come and gone in Tedford's era, along with the rest of the Pac 10 has been completely overshadowed by SC for almost a decade. Things at SC will never be the same, but you've got no reason to be bitter.

Having experienced such astronomical levels of success leaves me very much reason to be bitter and let down by subpar performances like the one we witnessed Thursday. That's what great programs do, they don't settle for mediocrity. Of course, I comprehend the fact that we will probably never hit the same highs as before, but that certainly shouldn't subject/downgrade our standards to anything less than a national championship, when eligible.

I suppose I see things differently here.

I suppose I see things differently here.I'm a Laker fan too, so I completely get it. When the Lakers don't compete for championships, I simply don't watch. SC isn't playing with a full deck of cards anymore, so despite the optimism from SC leadership, things are likely to get worse than better in the near term. From a national perspective, I think there was a misconception about SC football, with all the 5 star RB's and offensive players that SC recruited. During SC's run, it was the defense that was always most impressive to me. But I agree, that win against Hawaii was simply not good enough for SC standards. As for UCLA, they have gotten beaten up with injuries before the season even started and it's not going to be a pretty season for them.

SC - man, I can't help but think that as soon as they lose a game, the wheels are going to come flying off...

Stanford - they look pretty good, but I can't stand Jim Harbaugh. I'm waiting for him to get knocked off his high horse again.

Arizona - they may actually be for real, finally

UCLA looks terrible.

Cal - underrated, you'll see. People got off the bandwaggon a little too soon.

Washington - TBD

I like what Stanford is doing, but the run game is just not there yet. They have the talent but they need to gel still.

I'd honestly say that the Pac 10 is wide open still. A lot of these teams look pretty good.

Cal got shocked by the Nevada Wolfpack's pistol, without all Conference LB Mike Mohamed they were defensively unmanned. And the Wolfpack had them with a team speed advantage too.

Congrats to UCLA, after getting blown out by Andrew Luck & Stanford 35-0 they put 31 on Houston & upset the Cougars. Neuheisel is bringing them back but they had soooooo many preseason injuries to overcome.

I think the bigger question is what if Oregon goes to the BCS title game and USC is second?

Do I think it's going to happen? Hell no, but while we're playing hypothetical, this one seems more fun.

Hats off to Nevada. That offense is completely confusing, but Cal has always struggled against dual threat QB's and on the road.

UCLA is so unpredictable. Just when you think they aren't going to win any games, they pull this off. So typical for them...

Cal couldn't keep up with Kaepernick. He is a master at keeping or handing it off in that offense. The defense couldn't go full speed because of it.

With the exception of Wash St, I think that any Pac 10 team has a legit shot at beating any other Pac 10 team on any given day. It is still pretty wide open so far. I can't wait to get into some league play.

I was thinking about it, and if I had one year where I could have any linebacker in the conference on my team It'd be a tough choice between Gallippo, Foster, and Burfict. I'd end up going Burfict in most schemes though. He is really really good.

Congrats to UCLA for taking down Texas, although I can't say it was a huge surprise. Texas fans got a taste of the Pac 10's 9th worst team, and no, it's not a fluke! It really puts into perspective how tough the Pac 10 is.

Also, didn't UCLA beat Oklahoma twice (home & away) in the past 6 years?

On another note, I'm glad glad the Pac 10 is expanding. We've been canibalizing each other to our own detriment for far too long. Once we expand, we'll put 2 teams in BCS games on a regular basis.

Pretty sure Chris Galippo doesn't even start for USC.

He barely got on the field for the Trojans defense. I could almost see it if he were behind some real blue chipper but the guy in front of him is clueless both against the pass and the run.

On a sidenote i want to thank Lane Kiffin for basically bringing 3 timeouts to the locker room with him at the end of the USC vs Washington game. With about 2 minutes to go he let the Huskies run down the clock while in makable fg range. Kiffin looked confused and he was confused. He did use 2 of those to freeze the kicker, who was chuckling about it. We know how that strategy worked.

UW might make a bowl game if Cal keeps playing this bad. with how it draws out:
@Arizona - No Foles. UW could win this.
Stanford at Husky Stadium. Chalk this up as a loss.
@Oregon - Callin the upset. Wishful thinking as Oregon has too much Pac-10 speedz.
UCLA - rumors of all black jerseys. Night game at Husky Stadium on National TV. UW has this, only concern is the UCLA run game
@Cal - they could be coachless at this point. UW road win.
@WSU - Definite possibility to win.

I'm seeing 6-6. We should beat Zona,Ucla, Cal and Wazoo but you know we wont win them all. 3-3 in the games i mentioned is more realistic.

What do yall think of the new divisional alignment?

If Harbaugh leaves for the NFL as expected & Luck goes with him I think Oregon is going to own the North for yrs to come. If Cal's decline in the W-L rcd. & recruiting continues Tedford may go away too.

Strangely Utah & Colorado, where they have snow on both campuses every winter, LOL, are in the South but they drew the line diagonally NE to SW. I thought it would be East & West divisions, but wth.

That's good for them b/c they have more beatable teams there -- Arizona, UCLA, Arizona St. & a still down SC -- than in the North, where Harbaugh has turned Stanford into a talent magnet again & U-Dub under Sarkisian is getting stronger.

The 2 newbie teams will have to compete with the former Pac 10 for California Juco transfers but they're used to that. Being Pac 10 members with increased revenue can only help their prestige & with it their recruiting.

If Tedford is the reason for that, he has to go.Yeah, I read Cal is like 17 and 17 in Pac 10 play since 2007. That's not getting it done. As far as scheme, I think the problem is that we're effectively running the same offense as SC, but they consistently have superior talent. I don't see how we can ever consistenly get over the hump and now, with other teams on the rise, Cal has all kinds of other problems.

Paranoidmoonduck
11-19-2010, 01:01 PM
I think the scheme is a little different than USC, but the inconsistency issues aren't schematic. When the scheme works, it's hugely effective. Sometimes that team just doesn't show up to play, which is mystifying. The first real sign was that total collapse after they were ranked #2 in the nation, but things haven't really gotten better since then.

Having a real quarterback would help though. It wouldn't shock me if Boehm starts as a freshman next year, which should be interesting. I imagine that Tedford is guaranteed to be around for at least a few more years.

Southern California freshman tailback Dillon Baxter did not accompany the Trojans (No. 20 AP) on their flight to Saturday's game against Oregon State because of concerns he may have recently been in contact with an agent, USC coach Lane Kiffin said Friday.

"[Thursday], as [Baxter] was traveling across campus, he was given a ride in a golf cart by a couple students," Kiffin said in a video released on the school's official site. "Later we found out that one of these students may be an agent."
