Where I Come From: Expectations for the 2010 Season


This post is sponsored by EA Sports NCAA Football 2011.

Thanks to EA Sports for sponsoring this last week's worth of posts.   Football season is gearing up and expectations for the 2011 football season are high after the Cats have put together two excellent seasons.   The Cats bring back plenty of returning starters on offense and defense.

The Cats should have no problem with Toledo and Citadel to begin the season.  After that, the pivotal game of the season comes to town when Iowa visits Tucson on September 18, 2010.  Circle this date on your calendar.  Last year, the Cats were bullied around the field by the Hawkeyes and Nick Foles solidified himself as the starter for the Wildcats.  This year, the Cats will be ready as their season only ramped up after the Iowa loss last year and will be waiting for the Hawkeyes to come back to town.

The Cats get Cal and Oregon State at home, then play at Washington State followed up by Washington at home.  Look for the Cats to take out Cal but probably fall to Oregon State.  I think that Arizona will take out Washington State and have a hell of a game at home against Washington and Jake Locker.  UCLA in Southern California on 10-30 will always be a challenge and the Cats should breeze past Stanford on November 6.  USC shouldn't be much of a factor this year after the sanctions.  Unfortunately, I think that Arizona will suffer a loss playing at Oregon even though Oregon lost their starting QB Masoli after they kicked his dumbass off the team

Arizona State at home. December 2.  Arizona win.

Season Prediction:  9-3

Best Scenario: 10-2.  Beat Iowa in September. Beat Washington in Tucson. Lose to Oregon and Oregon State.

What are your thoughts on the season?
