Jeff Goodman of Fox Sports, reasonably suggesting that the Pac-10 Conference is down a bit this year, predicts Cal will win the league title and that Bears point guard Jerome Randle will claim Player of the Year honors.

Here is his predicted Pac-10 finish:

1. California
2. Washington
3. UCLA
4. Oregon
5. Arizona
6. Oregon State
7. Arizona State
8. Washington State
9. USC
10. Stanford

  • rollonubears

    Would that be a spinoff off BAP? Bears Against Prosperity?

  • calfan1

  • Bear IV

    Looks like CAL is a basketball school again.

  • uh oh.

    Here’s how it’s shaping up
    2009-10
    PG:
    Randle, Jerome
    Gutierrez, Jorge (combo)
    Smith, Brandon
    SG:
    Christopher, Patrick
    Seeley, D.J.
    SF:
    Robertson, Theo
    Amoke, Omondi
    PF:
    Boykin, Jamal
    Kamp, Harper
    C:
    Sanders-Frison, Markhuri
    Zhang, Max
    (predict Bak to redshirt and join Nigel and Nikola on the bench)
    We’ll still be on the smaller side, which will be the source of our frustration.

    2010-11 Lineup Prediction
    PG:
    Franklin, Gary Jr.
    Gutierrez, Jorge
    Smith, Brandon
    SG:
    Seeley, D.J.
    Crabbe, Allen
    SF:
    Amoke, Omondi
    Rossi, Alex
    PF:
    Kamp, Harper
    Solomon, Richard (may play 5)
    Bak, Bak
    C:
    Sanders-Frison, Markhuri
    Zhang, Max
    I’m interested to see DJ and Omondi at the 2 and 3 this year (2010-11). They will be mature players, and relied upon!
    Franklin is more of a scoring PG – Smith more of a handle-dish. Jorge for defense. Interesting how the 3 of them will split time. Questions include how strong Max and Bak can become. We will really need them, otherwise be in constant foul trouble with no depth. And what will Solomon be able to do as a freshman? He’s highly rated, athletic, so he could be very important to that interior rotation.
