This post goes out to the overly optimistic voters on my 2010 prediction poll. 15% of the voters think the Beavers will go UNDEFEATED! WTF?
I am cautiously optimistic for the upcoming season. The media is giving the Beavers way too much love this early. It kinda makes me worried. I do not think a first year QB is going to be able to handle TCU and BSU in the first 3 starts. Adding Louisville who is eager to make a mark on the Pac-10 is crazy brutal. I don't care how good the RB's and WR's are, the Beav's have a brutal schedule to overcome. The OSU defense is not that talented- quote me now. The OSU LB's are okay at best. There are no studs that I can see there.
It's great that Paea is getting love, but he's a nose guard, not even a DT. I don't think he is going to dominate a game even though he is talented. I don't see anyone else on the defense who has the physical skills to ball right now. Maybe someone will step up.
I will be happy if the Beav's start 1-2, psyched if they go 2-1, ecstatic at 3-0.
