Opponents Notebook, 8/27

San Jose State may have a capable quarterback, but their wide receivers have been less than spectacular during camp.

The Buffaloes are all about being out with the old and in with the new.

San Diego State's rebuilding process can't begin until they have something that resembles an offensive line. Meanwhile, every quarterback not named Kevin O'Connell is fighting for the backup spot.

He's baaaaaack.

You might not like what Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh has to say, but he's just keeping it real. Behind this fearless leader, you can bet on Stanford to put a scare into a few teams this season.

My fearless prediction; Washington State will go 0-12 this season.

Ty Willingham has said that practices this week will include artificial crowd noise while preparing for Friday night's game at Syracuse.

Bad news first: Cal's offense has improved since last year, and that's saying something with the departure of star halfback Marshawn Lynch. The good news: Keno Walter-White will not be covering anyone (so I guess nothing has changed).

Oregon might need someone besides Jonathon Stewart to step up at running back if he has another injury plagued season.

If you don't know the name Khalil Bell, you will by mid-season. With the Bruins depleted at fullback, Bell will get a lot of snaps to take the load off of starter Chris Markey.

Southern Cal has already set its sights on the National Championship in New Orleans. They really need to focus on Pac-10 play first, even though all of the mainstream media has already awarded them the National Championship.

And in international news, U of A is notably inexperienced on special teams. We're not so different after all.
