Ranking the Pac

A little late this week, but here are my new Pac-10 rankings.
1, USC — But who’s coaching this team Dennis Erickson? (The new automatic comment for whichever team commits the most penalties in the Pac-10 that week).
2, Cal — Hard to believe that was Cal’s first win in Eugene since 1987.
3, Arizona State — I’m surprised more people aren’t jumping on this bandwagon. That blowout of Colorado a couple of weeks ago looks a lot better now, doesn’t it?
4, Oregon — The turnover bug is returning, and now we’ll see if the Ducks can hold it together when some adversity hits.
5, UCLA — Still the strangest team in the conference. Outplayed much of the day in Corvallis yet won byb 26.
6, Washington — They need to replicate the effort part of that effort every week.
7, Arizona — Maybe I wasn’t so completely off-base about the Wildcats after all?Leading the league in passing at 323 per game.
8, Oregon State — When it unravels for these guys, it really unravels.
9, Washington State — Ranks 103rd in the nation in defense at 457 yards allowed per game.
10, Stanford — Already 0-3 in Pac-10 home games.
A LOOK AHEAD:
Here’s what’s on tap next week:
Arizona at Oregon State — Looking like a bowl elimination game as the loser will have a tough time getting the necessary wins. A real test of whether Arizona’s new-found offense is for real, and of whether the Beavers can rally the troops one more time.
Stanford at USC — Cardinal picking a bad time to head to LA, not that there’s ever really a good time.
Notre Dame at UCLA — So who do USC fans root for in this one, anyway?
Arizona State at Washington State — Bill Doba could really use a win right now.
