Matt Hayes really messed up on his predictions last week.
8. Lack of respect.
I don’t know about anyone else, but Oregon and Cal are two of the top five teams I’ve seen play this fall.
Yet for some reason, these two get zero respect from the polls. All of those glomming onto the aforementioned Michigan theory, remember the Ducks won at Ann Arbor by 7,000 points in September.
Sidebar alert!! (Please see the Billingsley poll and look at who is ranked No.11 and who is ranked No. 18. That’s all I have to say about that). Back to our show …
That horrible Cal loss to Oregon State? The Beavers will win at least eight games this season — maybe more.
What does it all mean? The Ducks and Bears are going to start hanging numbers on teams. Big numbers. Starting this week with Oregon at Washington and Cal at UCLA.
And Cal didn’t quite live up to it this past weekend. This college football season is going to be a wild ride.
