UPDATED (4:07 pm EST Nestor): Eastern Sports Programming Network also has its preview out. They are teaming up with Blue Ribbon College Football Yearbook. They are expecting Coach Karl to finish second in the PAC. Here is their predicted order of finish in the PAC:
Pacific-10 ConferenceClearly they are shooting for more than a total of 8 win season, which we think is jusr right. If KD cannot win 9 games he needs to go.
3. Arizona State
4. Washington State
7. Oregon State
As we posted earlier this today, CNNSI has its UCLA season preview out and the expectation for Coach Karl is minimal:
This could be a make-or-break season for Dorrell. A favorable schedule includes only one difficult road game, the Dec. 3 season finale at USC. Eight wins is the expectation.
Now one would think that if Coach Karl wins 8 regular season games this upcoming season UCLA would be in good position to be in a solid bowl game against a decent opponent. As O posted below CFN has no such confidence in Karl as they are projecting us to finish fifth place Pac-10 and win another EXCITING trip to the Las Vegas Bowl!:
