2008 College Football Preview, Haiku Style: THE PAC 10

I don’t see the point of writing a long-winded preview of the 2008 college football season when you can go to Books-A-Million or Barnes and Noble to find 300+ pages of amazing writing from, say, Phil Steele, all for less than $10.

So I want to keep things as short as possible while still providing my opinion on the final conference standings, bowl matchups and ultimately the BCS title game next January in Miami.

The result: Haikus for every team, every conference, every bowl matchup Division I-A has to offer this year. First up was the “best” conference in the land, the SEC, which you can read here. After that was my favorite conference, the Big XII, which you can read here. Next up is the Pacific 10.

Warning: These haikus will probably suck.

1. USC Trojans

Wrong year to play Bucks
Would win if in November
That will be lone loss

2. Arizona State Sun Devils

Skill position stars
Break logjam with Ducks and Bears
Must improve run game

3. California Golden Bears

Riley should lead O
Front seven will carry the load
Beat Ducks to place third

4. Oregon Ducks

Talented as any
Too many tough games to start
Must stick to one arm

5. Arizona Wildcats

Must win for Mike Stoops
Best offense he has had here
Will play in bowl game

6. UCLA Bruins

First games build toughness
Will be tough come October
Life and death for bowl

7. Oregon State Beavers

Riley a great coach
Lost too many starters on D
Bruin game defines year

8. Stanford Cardinal

Building off last year
Best program has been in years
Ready for bowl soon

9. Washington Huskies

Locker must improve
Not enough experience
No excuses Ty

10. Washington State Cougars

Will not win a game
Except for Portland State game
Decent defense though
