PAC12CG UCLA @ Stanford
Who do you have USC losing to?
The games I actually went with were Arizona, @ND, Stanford, and UCLA.
The last 3 shouldn't shock anyone, although ND and UCLA are probably winnable games for USC as long as things progress throughout the season. No real reason for the loss to Arizona other than Arizona will be coming off 2 bye weeks in 3 weeks and USC should be undefeated at that point and could get caught looking ahead to Notre Dame during their bye week as well.
Plus, right after Arizona, the schedule really gets tough for USC, which makes that Arizona game a little more difficult, IMO.
that would get kiffin fired, i hope

Is that the goal?
Funny thing is that Kiffin seems like the type of coach that could be much better when people don't expect big things.
Kind of like his season at Tennessee and the 2011 season.
I think people are happy he will either sink or swim. Win 10 or move on.
With the talent he has on this team and that soft schedule, even going 10-3 is disappointing.
UCLA is getting a little bit over-hyped. I heard they were going to start 3 freshman offensive linemen, and that does not usually bode well. Mora is doing good things, but I'd be surprised if they won 10 games.
I don't see 3 losses for Oregon including the PAC 12 CCG and a bowl game. 3 in conference is absurd. Returning way too much talent.
3 PAC 12 losses puts helf on the hot seat immedietly.
I think it will be a sink scenario but I hope I'm wrong. Breaking in a new QB, no CB's, no depth, and an Oline that looks improved but only because they probably can't get any worse. And the bubble screen is no longer a surprise advantage for our O.
8/9 wins IMHO.
and they lose a VERY good RB and TE
Opitmistic for 11 wins. I think Kiff needs 11 with a split vs ucla and Notre Dame, or 10 with wins over both of our rivals to save his job. I am optimistic for 11 wins.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Are you optimistic that Kessler starts at QB?
Probably WIttek. but hopefully he has a very short leash, unlike the bowl game.
I gave any PAC12 team the benefit of the doubt when playing a B1G team so that settled Nebraska for me.
I am not sold on Washington yet, although they really seem to be almost there every year now.
I definitely see at best a split with Oregon, Standford, USC and Arizona.
Don't forget about @Utah either. I know they shouldn't be that great this year, but going to St. Lake City is never going to be easy, especially for the SoCal and Arizona schools.
The question you should be asking is who does he have them beating? With Kiffen at the helm, USC will continue to struggle and lose games even to teams with far less talent. He's a terrible HC. Of course, you don't need to take my word for it ... you have Matt Barkley's.

Kiffin and Hoke suck.
Matt Barkley sucks too.
Is Rushel Shell eligible to play this year? I'd assume he has to sit, but I'm not familiar with his transfer.
