An early forecast for the 2014 Pac-12 race

In a very early peek at the 2014 season, The Times’ Bud Withers likes Oregon and UCLA as the Pac-12 divisional front-runners, with the Huskies second in his North outlook.

Here’s what he had to say about UW:

2. Washington

Starters back: 7 offense, 7 defense.

Nonconference schedule: At Hawaii, Eastern Washington, Illinois, Georgia State.

Synopsis: UW had heavy early-entry losses to the NFL and needs continued positive arc from QB Cyler Miles. Schedule, both in and out of league, looks kinder. Key question might be the transition issue voiced last week by Rick Neuheisel on Pac-12 Networks: “Sark recruited a different kind of guy. They had edge, they had swag. There was a bunch of jumping around. Now comes Chris Petersen, who has openly said, ‘We recruit OKGs, our kind of guys.’ How many of these guys are going to be his kind of guys?”
