Your 2014 Football Team's Chances

Your 2014 Football Team's Chances 


Hey gents.  I think you have a good chance to reach the Pac12 title game, even if you lose to UCLA as they have to play both Stanford and Oregon.  I'm wondering, though, if you think you'll be able to solve the UCLA riddle this year and beat them.  I think it's quite possible you could be 10-0 going into that game and playing for a berth in the playoffs as well.  Of course, those final three games would be brutal having to play UCLA, Notre Dame and then Oregon/Stanford (presumably) in the Pac12 title game.  I happen to think you have a shot but I'm not sure how likely it is.  What say you?  Thanks in advance.

I doubt you find too many posters here that will say we should be 10-0 going into the ucla game.  It would be nice but doubt it.  Personally I am looking for the team to win 10 games total including a win over ucla or ND.  Primary issue this year is limit injuries to minor scrapes or student managers.

Well Buck, I kind of agree with you, I think we could be 10-0 if we can keep the injuries down.  This may be one of the most talented team we have had for sometime now.  I could be over reaching, but that's the way I roll.  Fight On!.gifThanks for asking

I somehow missed that you also play at Stanford.  That will be a tough game but they lose a lot this year.  It goes without saying you'll need to stay healthy but it seems the talent is there.  The $64,000 question is, though, will you beat UCLA?  I'd like to think you guys are going to beat them as I plan to pick you guys in my family's annual college football pool.

I do believe we are at least a 10 win team I also think playing a rival game against Stanford so early is good, we should still be healthy i'm hoping.

We win 10+ this year.  Stanford early is a plus and we again have an O line to thump opponents.  Get odds and win big if you bet the Trojans against the gutless wonders in baby-blue.  Fucla will play tough this last year of sanctions but it's over for those chumps.

The bruins may be on a upsurge, but they are very beatable. As I see it, this will be their best year if they are consistent.  However, consistency has been their Achilles heel even with their success the past two years. If the Trojans are pretty healthy on both lines going into the UCLA game, I think the Trojans actually win.  As you have read, the O line may be the key to our success this season, but there is plenty of talent, just not a lot of experience. So, it will take the first five or six games for that unit to gel, then look out, there could be a terrific finale to the season.

With our schedule and out returners, 10 wins with a win over AT LEAST one of the rivals (ruins cough cough).

The unknown is always there. Probably trip up somewhere where we aren't supposed to, probably beat someone maybe we aren't supposed to so who knows.

Beating Stanford on the road in the second game of the season would be difficult for any team that is learning new offensive and defensive schemes after a coaching change.   As far as beating UCLA, it will be tough keeping Hundley from going 3-0 against the Trojans.  The game is at the Rose Bowl and it is best team Mora has had since taking over at UCLA.  USC should have learned their new schemes pretty well by then, and should be more talented than last year, but UCLA will be very tough to beat in 2014.  Go Bruins!

Though for all intents and purposes we are off sanctions recruiting wise for the class of 2015, we're still on them this year.   I see 8 wins or so.  Maybe 9 or 10.  As for UCLA, there is no riddle.  We were completely depleted the last two years, especially on the line and thus, we lost.
