fuzzyl0gic IrishBearcat MNoffke #6 Washington Huskies - 89 overall, 88 offense, 88 defense > The Huskies are projected to finish 1st in their division, and I believe this to be accurate. They had a pretty successful season last year, and begin this season with the best national ranking of all user teams at #6. Washington has pretty difficult schedule for the first half of the season, starting off with #15 Texas, and finishing their season @ #13 Cal, vs #23 CU, and finally @ rival Washington State. This Washington team is very inexperienced at QB and HB, however, they has a strong O Line up front and a 1,000 yard receiver in speedy Senior John McNamara. If the defense is consistent I could see this team making a statement in the PAC 12. The LB's look very good, and spread teams will really struggle against the abundance of super fast corners Washington possesses. #11 Oregon State Beavers - 89 overall, 87 offense, 90 defense > The Beavers are the reigning PAC 12 champs. They will set out to prove the voters and the non believers wrong this season and make another run at the title game. Starting the season off at #2 LSU is going to be an extremely difficult game, but even a loss could be a blessing in disguise. Washington may sleep on the Beavers when they come to Husky Stadium and it could be a trap game for them. I really like this team, they have a good mix of Seniors and younger guys, and they are really balanced throughout the roster. They have one marquee player, that being Senior OLB Tyler Avery, at 6'3" 251lbs this guy is an absolute freak. 89 speed, 99 acceleration....he hasn't put up mind blowing numbers thus far in his career but I expect him to be coming off the edge at quarterbacks a lot more often this season. #13 California Golden Bears - 91 overall, 90 offense, 90 defense > Cal is the highest rated user team in the division so obviously they have a great chance at running the table as well. I believe that their schedule is really favorable towards them, in that it is spread out pretty well. They will travel to #1 Auburn in week 2 before they have to travel to #11 Oregon State. If they can win that game they will sit in a powerful position watching the other users take each other out until they have to face UCLA at home in late October. In the past Cal has generally ran the ball a lot, but they may be looking to pass a little more with the top two quarterbacks on their roster. That is, if they don't start Dan Larsen out of the gates who is coming off a redshirt season. Redshirt Junior HB Shaun Young will most likely be the starter at 88 overall, and rushing for 10 TDs last season in a back up role. Washington State Cougars - 78 overall, 81 offense, 75 defense > The Cougars are picked to finish last in the entire conference, but I can guarantee you that isn't going to happen. They played some tough teams really close last year, improved on both sides of the ball, and have hired new offense and defensive coordinators. Depending on how well this team controls games they could finish in the Top 25, if not better. The only question is who will be the starting QB...Sophomore Tim Todd - all american, threw for 4,500 yards last season, or Freshman Joe Hunt who posesses more speed. A week 1 game vs an FCS school gives Washington State a good oppurtunity to have all their questions answered and get started off in the win column.
