Among ESPN’s analysts. Lee Corso, Ed Cunningham and Lou Holtz pick USC to win the Pac-10. But more analysts pick Oregon. Here’s the results:
Jim Harbaugh obviously built this program from the ground up. I think they’ll show that there’s more to this team than Toby Gerhart, and Andrew Luck could be the best player in the Pac-10.
Monte Kiffin’s defense and they’ve got Oregon and Cal at home.
Nick Costas is not a great quarterback but he has great talent around him.
Don’t forget, Tennessee got better in the second half of last season.
Even without Masoli, they still have the best spread scheme in the conference.
One of three teams with a proven QB, still the most talented team in the Pac-10. They will rally together because of the probation and people are writing them off.
I worked their spring game and I didn’t see one bit of distraction within the team from off-field stuff. The Ducks are focused and talented and have a very good coaching staff.
17 starters return to a team that must overcome the loss of QB Jeremiah Masoli, however they still have the talent to survive conference road tests at USC and Oregon St.
