1.USC-What can you say about this team? John David Booty an extremly talented quartorback, who stepped into the shoes of Matt Linert and stepped up to show what he could do. With the lossess of two very good wide-outs in Dwyane Jarret and Steve Smith it should affect a team, but no not USC. They have two other wide-outs over 6'3 who will step into the shoes and do well.
2.Cal-Nate Longshore had some games where would be off and throw some INT's. Thugh he will just keep on getting stornger into this. Losing Marshaun Lynch will hurt the running game a little bit, but it's not going to kill them. Cal is still going to be a sloid all aorund team and look for them to be in a better bowl game this year.
3.UCLA-Good solid team. The Bruins don't really have one player who can do it all like Drew did a few years back, but they have a solid overall team. The Bruins had a few very big wins, but the biggest was against the Trojans. Yes, the Bruins did beat the Trojans last year, which was big for not just the Bruins, but also the Berkely Bears. With the loss it meant that Cal and USC tied for first place in the Pac-10.
4.Arizona State-The Sun Devils do not play a ranked team for a while. Actually they will not until October 27th when they play number #12 Cal Bears. From that game on the season will be very hard for them to maintain their rankings. Though because of the easier schedule i will give them the number four mark. Key game to look for which might be an upset San Jose State Week two. Tharts going to be a good game.
5.Oregon-Ducks, Ducks, Ducks. The Ducks started off the 2006-2007 season with a pretty good start, but then they started to drift off after that. The Ducks have an high powered offense and not a great defense. They are a good defensive team, but they are not great. It will be a very hard road for the Ducks this year so don't be surprised if the Ducks do not come in 5th or above. The Ducks have to play #5 Michigan, #12 California Bears, #1 USC, and #14 UCLA. Another team to watch out for is Fresno State for the Ducks they are a good team.
6.Oregon State-Alright I cheated a bit on this one. I didn't really know a lot about this team before so I had to look at their box score from todays game. The Oregon State's offense struggled a bit, but it's the first game and it normally takes offenses some time to get in the grove of things.
7.Washington-After watching today's game with the Washigton'sdefense is extremly impresive. They were tearing up the Orange Men's offense. Sack, pressures, and hurries ups were what they were seeing the whole game. The defensive of coordinator has really built the Huskies into a great defensive team. Impresive tonight, but will they be able to keep?
8.Arizona-Not the strongest team out in the Pac-10, but with the spread offense the Wildcats could do some damange. even though the Cats defense is not very good with the type of offense they run it could be pretty good.
9.Washington State-Well, Washington State is not as bad as many people say that they are. Though they are still pretty bad. Though the Cougars run the spread offense which will get them somewhere and they have a very good quatorback.
10.Stanford-Umm.. What to say what to say. Well, looking on the bright side of things, Stanford won one game last year, but other than that there really isn't much else to think about for the team. Though look for them to be a bit better than they were last year.
