Avinash at California Golden Blogs posted an epic preview of the upcoming (and last) Pac-10 season.
College football is back, and the clock is ticking toward the official kickoff on Thursday night. To get you prepared, we got together the SB Nation Pac-10 sites to provide our input on this upcoming season. We managed to get AZ Desert Swarm (Arizona Wildcats), House of Sparky (Arizona St. Sun Devils), Addicted to Quack (Oregon Ducks), Building the Dam (Oregon St. Beavers), Bruins Nation (UCLA Bruins), Conquest Chronicles (USC Trojans), Coug Center (Washington St. Cougars) to join us (California Golden Bears, in case you thought this was the Concordia University SB Nation site) in casting their predictions for this upcoming season. The categories were predicted standings, Pac-10 Offensive & Defensive Player of the Year and Pac-10 Coach of the Year. In addition, some of us added in our All Pac-10 Teams.
Based on votes from across the conference of blogs, Arizona is slated to finish third behind the pair of Oregon and Oregon State.
Among the Arizona Wildcats selected to the All-Pac 10 Team: OT Adam Grant, C Colin Baxter, DE Ricky Elmore, and CB Trevin Wade.
Just think - next year, these predictions will include Utah as a strong contender for the conference title, and Colorado can duke it out with ASU in the cellar to see who is better than Washington State. Heh.
