Week 15 (Final Week)

Interesting week for a couple of reasons. First, Oregon State has a national seed and the Pac-12 championship all but sewn up after defeating the second-place Ducks 2-1 last week, and they only need to beat the COugars once to claim the title. The Ducks and UCLA are tied for second, two games back. The Ducks were effectively knocked out of national seed status (and probably lucky Tuesday’s nonconference rematch in Corvallis was canceled) and will probably need help from tournament teams across the nation to push two or three other contenders for the final national seed down. They also need to do well against Utah to stave off UCLA from overtaking them for second place. UCLA is not likely to be a national seed, but they can raise their regional host pairing with a second-place conference finish. They’ll be facing a disappointed and disappointing Stanford team that is pretty much gone and playing their final series of the year. Both Oregon and UCLA still have a mathematical possibility of claiming the Pac-12 crown. ASU is the fourth and most likely final Pac-12 team that will get a postseason bid. As their first after sanctions, a #2 seed will be welcome. And finally, Arizona, an up-and-down team that moved up a little last week after beating the Devils, is on the outside of the bubble looking in. A sweep of USC probably won’t do it, but by golly, they’ll probably try.

One more thing: Cal is done; they played their last game Monday. So this week we have only five series, which means each point counts for 1.2 points. That’s probably good news for those trying to make up serious ground on the final week, because you only have to be right five times instead of six. Keep that in mind.

This week we get more than a fair share of all-or-nothing picks. It can pay, but here’s something to think about: Any one of the top ten guys right now could increase his average to surpass the current top average score with a score this week of 26 points. Of course, the people above you would have to score no higher than their current average scores, but it is still possible. For comparison, OpihiMan has had a high of 25 and a low of 15; DM a high of 26 and a low of 14; hogfan 24 and 14; BeaverBob 29 and 12. So there is hope for everyone yet!

This week’s games
  • WSU at #3 OSU
  • #8 Ore at Utah
  • #11 UCLA at Stan
  • #16 ASU at UW
  • USC at Ariz
An example ballot would look like this:

OSU 3-0
Ore 2-1
Stan 2-1
UW 3-0
Ariz 3-0

OSU 2-1
Ore 3-0
Ucla 2-1
UW 2-1 (Huskies have been playing very well, another upset?)
Ariz 3-0 (We really need to BEAR DOWN this weekend, sweep and believe in miracles!)

It's been fun playing again this year with this lopsided PAC-12 crew. There are a lot of really good teams around the country this year but I think we should field a couple of strong teams to Omaha this year and keep the World Series title in the hands of the PAC. Signing off until next year unless Zona get to play after Sunday...wouldnt mind being sent to Baton Rouge or Vanderbilt as punishment for the season we have had!!! BEAR DOWN!

Hey, guys! Long time no talk. As some of you may know, I am in the Navy. Currently stationed in San Antonio, where I have been going to advanced training to become a Med Lab Tech. About 6 months away from that.

Been really enjoying the Beavers season this year. I think we have one of the best 3-man pitching rotations in the nation, with one of the best bullpens on top of that. And when our offense is clicking, there are not many teams that can compete against us.

Better late then never, so here is my predictions for the last week of the P12 season.

  • OSU 3-0
  • ORE 3-0
  • UCLA 2-1
  • ASU 2-1
  • ARIZ 3-0
