Penultimate weekend of conference play, and we have several competitive series matchups. Rankings this week are taken from Massey. This week’s games:
  • 17 Cal at 22 UCLA
  • 26 Ariz at 16 Stan
  • 66 USC at 4 OSU
  • 38 Ore at 51 WSU
  • 7 ASU at 169 UW

  • Cal and UCLA are battling for 2nd/3rd place, and both still have an outside chance at the championship. But one will almost certainly fall out of contention this weekend. And whoever survives will still have to face Stanford (cal) or Arizona State (UCLA) the following week, so it won't get much easier.
  • At 11-10 in conference, Arizona takes on Stanford (10-11) in what looks like a battle of mediocre teams, but these two foes are equally matched and much better than their conference records make them appear. Depending on how Cal fares in Westwood, one of these teams could take a step forward as the new 4th place team.
  • USC has shown steady progress over the year, culminating in their best (yet) weekend against #7 ASU, taking 2 of three. The Beavers are pretty good at home, however, and Dodger Matt and daughter will be there rooting for them Friday night (thanks to BeaverBob), so expect Gaviglio to own the Trojans.
  • What a disappointment both of these teams have been to themselves and their fans. Neither likely has a shot to make the postseason, though both could do some damage if they got a shot at it. Expect this series to be the dying throes for one or both programs this season.
  • Could this be a trap? Washington is clearly the conference's RPI leper, and ASU just got bested by the Trojans, another overlooked squad. But can the Huskies take one from ASU and ruin their national seed hopes? Will simply playing UW drop ASU's RPI to Miami's level?

Note on scoring and strategy: Anyone currently in the 16-point average range will probably need to score in the 20s this week and next to overcome the current leader (assuming the leaders do no better than current averages). That means at minimum you will need to pick all five series at 2-1 margins or get one or two sweeps if you miss any series. So place your bets carefully...

Or swing for the fences. What have you got to lose?


A sample poll would look like this:

UCLA 2-1
Stan 2-1
OSU 2-1
Ore 3-0
UW 2-1

Sir DM (Yes, you have been elevated to knighthood with your comments to the newby miami poster)

My picks for the week are:

UCLA 2-1
Stan 2-1
OSU 3-0
WSU 2-1
ASU 2-1

Except for the ASU games, home teams have the advantage this week.

Thanks again for doing this every week. It is an enjoyable way to have some fun and not go broke doing it (Except for Riverduck. Wasn't he required to pay? LOL)

Dam this is exciting!!!!

Has Kendall offered you a job yet?

Riverduck, I see you are using reverse psychology and rooting against your Ducks. Not a bad strategy.

I've been meaning to ask all season, but what is the difference between a Southern Beaver and a Florida Beaver? I've been thinking about changing my name to Oregon Beaver or Northern Beaver.

Ophiman, it was great sitting with you at the Cal game. It's nice putting a face to a name. I'm just glad you didn't mention my flatuence problem to DM. Now, my excuse about the fowl (whoops, my spelling is bad) foul wind blowing from Eugene won't fly

yeah, either way I will still be a winner lol. Plus showering alot of praise toward the Beavers could help. Heck I would support your team, by showing up to my first ever beaver game if they make it to host status. I would probably wear my Ducks hat.. Only if you guys sweep us of course..

It's the amount of hair covering the beaver. Florida is quite warm, so the beavers tend to have less hair or are shaved. A southern beaver has more hair because it can get cold in the south. (The Mason/Dixon line is in snow country if you didn't know.) Northern beavers usually are covered because of the extreme cold. In Oregon, beavers tend to stay wet. My wife says she doesn't mind a bald beaver. Me? I rather have hair on mine, but genetics says otherwise., dam it.

We are talking male pattern baldness, right?
