Hold:If that aint Duck paintin the kettle green! So were talkin me Beavs aint nuttin but a play or two away from a 11-1 or a 12-1 season?
Oregon St. - If Reilly is there, they aren't going to compete for a Pac 12 title, but they will turn in 9-3 seasons somewhat consistently.
Nothing says lil brother more than that.Only thang you been "observing for 101 dayz" is yer head up your own azzhole!
Stanford - Now that they have a stud RB coming back and they were able to keep most of their key players from last season I can see them still improving.Whoze dat stud whiz? D Shaw "pullin em outta his azz" now? Whatz he going to "plug-n-play" now? # 2, #3 or #4? Oh yeah, I guess Hogan's gonna run laps around everyone.

Conference: 6-3Never underestimate Mike Riley. The Beavs quietly had the Pac-12's No. 2 passing offense. Riley will arguably have the league's best depth at quarterback with Sean Mannion and Cody Vaz. A win over Stanford or Oregon makes it a special season.
What's wrong truth hurt.He sounds like he just graduated from an ebonics class. Typical of sheep U fans.
Wildly different ideas of buy/hold/sell from all of the posters up here.
If we created a scoring system that gave 1 point to any hold where the team either stayed at the same wins or went +/- 1 win, gave 4 points for any buy that went +2 (or more) or 2 points for going +1 wins, and gave 4/2 points for sells that go -2/-1 wins, would you still make the same picks?
Under those circumstances it would be hard not to take colorado as a buy. All they have to do is win 2 and you get 2 points. They are a no brainer for a hold at least as the only way you don't get 1 point is if they win 3 games or more.
Want to make it closer to a stock market kind of risk factor? Any buy/sell that doesn't convert costs you -2 points. Would you still be as bold for your team as a buy? Still dump WSU and colorado as a sell?
Just curious if under those conditions if any of you would have radically different lists.
They haven't taken a step back and unlike Harbaugh, Shaw's Stanford team was able to beat Oregon.Harbaugh beat Oregon, and so did Luck.
Now that they have a stud RB coming backThe running back he is referring to is Tyler Gaffney, who is in fact very good. He took off last year knowing he wouldn't get that many reps behind Taylor. With Taylor moving on, and Barry Sanders probably not fully ready to take on the lion's share of the the workload, it will be Gaffney and Wilkerson getting the bulk of the work.

I see what you did there.
And yes I was talking about Gaffney who torched up UW a couple of years back and had several very good games against other good teams. To me that answers the question of can they generate the kind of rushing they had last year under Taylor and thus why they are in a BUY mode for me. I see Stanford as the team to beat in the north this year.
Your team overacheived this year. I wouldn't be surprised if they took a step back. But they aren't going to do any better this season. They don't have the talent.Typical Smucks fan veiw on this thread...I'll take this response as a compliment and exactly the what I like to see when it come to the Beavs.
Typical Smucks fan veiw on this threadI think Mr. Wallace is the sock puppet's name that this guy's shrink uses. I don't know who's worse Mr. Wallace or Shortbus. Both are delusional beiber fans. Both bring nothing to the table except poor grammar and homerism. I guess Mr. Wallace is worse because he trolls the PAC-12 thread while Shortbus stays far away! meh.
beavers 8 wins before bowl
I think it's way too early to try and put a win total on any team. I know with UW we will have a lot better feel for how they might look in the fall after the spring game and I'm sure that is the same for most of the rest of the Pac. Doubt we learn a whole lot from Oregon or Stanford in their spring games, but everyone else has questions that at least might be partially answered then. Oregon and Stanford just pretty much need to avoid injury in their spring and give some reps to the few replacments each are dealing with.
Who will have the most important spring? or the most interesting at least? USC? If ever there was a team in desperate need of a solid spring to help gain momentum and turn the ship around it has to be them.
I think it's way too early to try and put a win total on any team.Probably true but I stand by it
