How will the new Pac-12 setup change the league? Can Robert Woods and USC take over the South, or will the schedule be too rocky? It's way early, and these might be changed up during Preview time, but as spring ball kicks in, take a look at the initial thoughts on how the Pac-12 season might go. Let the early picks and predictions begin.

So here's how this works. 1) We're going off our beliefs about how good we think the teams are going into spring, ball, and of course we can and will change these up a bit as things happen. We'll do this all again during Preview 2011 time. 2) Remember, there have to be upsets somewhere. No one could've ever seen Texas being so bad last year and no one would've ever picked Jacksonville State to beat Ole Miss. 3) Remember, timing is everything with schedules. Getting a week off at the right time can change a season and lead to a huge upset.
