So, cricket's chirping around here for a long time, eh? Well, season getting going soon and the preseason story lines are getting solidified. If anybody's still around maybe you'll vote whether they're a lock or pure bunk.
UW is the clear favorite...
IMHO, lock. Everybody else is solidly in "prove it" territory after the past few seasons.
USC will regress w/o proven QB
IMHO, bunk. USC still recruits better than anybody else, and their scheme is not too complex to pick up. Still have good line, good D, tall fast receivers. I dunno if they are top shelf again yet, but they're not down to having rebuilding years like mere mortals either.
UO is back to being good, but probably not great
IMHO, lock, but only b/c of the complete cakewalk schedule.
And it ain't a story line but Utah is falling under the radar again, and the rest of the Pac always makes a mistake when they forget about the Utes.
