A Caveman Can Win 9 Games With UCLA's Experience/Talent

bruinhoo nailed down a major point wrt this upcoming season:

With this team + schedule (even this coach), 9-3 should be a gimme. The question is whether Dorrell can get the team (or not prevent it) from winning the 1-2 additional games that it reasonably could take.
In other words even any of these guys would win 9 games with the kind of experience and talent Dorrell is going to have available in his roster this upcoming season.



You think we are embellishing? Well then you have to read this Davis quote in Kevin Pearson's article in the Press Enterprise on "all the pieces" being "in place" at UCLA (emphasis mine):
UCLA hired offensive coordinator Jay Norvell, and Dorrell said that for the first time, he has an offensive coordinator with whom he is completely on the same page. Throw in a defense that broke out last season and features preseason All-American safeties Chris Horton and Dennis Keyes, and the Bruins have high expectations.

"We've been through it all," Davis said. "We've played in big games and won big games. We've seen everything college football has to offer. If it's ever going to happen, it's going to happen now."
I think Davis would agree with us that even a Caveman would be able to win 9 games with the kind of talent Dorrell is going to have available this coming season.

The question is (as noted by hoo) can Dorrell win at least 1 or 2 more games, which should put him in position to win the Pac-10 championship?
