Taking an early look at Pac-12 non-conference schedules to see if the West Coast can avoid another ugly season.
Michigan backed out of a home and home series with UCLA this fall and next. The Bruins would have had a better schedule had that not happened.
Tell me if I'm crazy.
Arizona - 3-0 Unfortunate for us, but I think they'll surprise this year
Arizona State - 2-1 Where they will suffer is Conference Play
Colorado - 0-3 I cant definitively say they'll win any of these games
Oregon - 2-1 Lets be real, the game against Georgia is not neutral
Oregon State - 2-1 They will beat one of Fresno or Boise, not both
Stanford - 0-3 I hate Stanford too much to give them any wins
UCLA - 3-0 They better not embarrass the conference
USC - 3-0 They will be one of the better teams, even if a little overrated
Utah - 3-0 Utah beating Florida would make my week honestly
Washington - 3-0 They will probably bounce back after disappointing last year
Washington State - 2-1 Their QB is the real deal.
California - 3-0 on our way to the National Championship.
I will find myself, again, rooting for the Dux to win a marquee game, when I’d really like them to be a mediocre team……sigh…..
If, as you say Stanfurd is going to be really bad this year will Shaw, after four years in the doldrums, finally get the sack? And if he does do you think their next coach will be more Teevens or Harbaugh?
Interesting write-up. Thanks for the ATQ article on Furd. That was eye-opening and pointed out some of their problems and their slip into mediocrity over the past few years.
