You forgot to consider out-of-conference play. We'll see if the Dawgs live up to the hype in Tempe. If UT is bottom of the barrel, how did they get ranked #18 to start the year? Maybe, just maybe, the pundits who vote on the rankings are biased towards the SEC. Comparitively speaking, UCLA is like the Arkansas of the Pac-10...oops, wait... Gard, I've noticed from a lot of your posts you continue to bask in last season. It's 2008, move on.
