Conference Pre-View

Not into a whole lot of blather given the current state of affairs on Neo-poop Island.

So, here’s my two-second run down. For more info, check out Sedi-Hawks AOL stuff.

Or pick up the latest issue of Lindys and sit (or smoke) on the pot for a while.

Whatever you choose, this is how Brinkhater sees it:

1. USC (9-0, 12-0)

Lights Out Til They Lose The Championship

2. Oregon State (7-2, 10-2)

Should be no surprise to anyone paying attention to what they did last year. BearCat road game could be sneaker given the Beavs tendency to get punked in pre-conference road games.

3. UCLA (6-3, 9-3).

FSU Game last year showed that Bruins aren’t ready for contention

4. Arizona (6-3, 8-4)

Good but don’t know how to win consistently. They’ll wish they had a few close ones back.

5. Cal (5-4, 7-5)

Tough to rebound after loss at home to the Volunteers when they realize they have have no defense.

6. Arizona State (4-5, 7-5).

Denny rides soft September to Bowl

7. Oregon (3-6, 5-7).

Stewart runs wild in the Big House as Ducks lose 35-31 heartbreaker. They fold thereafter…Just like Belotti’s babies.

8. UW (2-7, 4-9)

They should be 9th but they beat us, so they get the tiebreaker. I’m giving them both the Cuse and Boise State. Merry Christmas Dawg lovers. You’re still gonna suck.

9. WSU (2-7, 4-8).

A close finish in Madison could make a lot of difference. But close losses to Arizona and Arizona State make an 0-3 conference start too much to bear.

10. Stanford (1-8, 2-10)

Doubled win total from the previous year leaves something in the Cards for next year.
