Season Preview: Predicting the Pac-10

The Pac-10 is wide open this year.  USC is starting a freshman quarterback.  Cal has quarterback issues, and a running back who, when healthy, is all-world, but is injury-prone.  Oregon has a new head coach and suspect defense.  Oregon State has to replace some serious production at wide receiver, and historically starts slow.  Stanford and UCLA are on the way up, but have yet to prove they have made the leap.  And the Washington schools, well, you know.  Better luck next year. 

With all that in mind, here is how the ADS writers saw the Pac-10 season shaking out.
