Pac-10 Media Day: USC Picked to Win Pac-10 in Media Poll

By Dave Consolazio and Sam Saig, July 30, 2009 3:45 pm

In what wasn’t too much of a surprise to anyone, for the seventh straight year, USC was voted by the media to be the favorite to win the Pac-10 title this season.

Only four voters were brave enough to put a team other than USC in their top spot; three chose Cal and one chose Oregon.

USC’s schedule looks to be pretty brutal this season with both the Cal and the Oregon games coming on the road, and this is the most vulnerable the Trojans have looked in years. But can you really blame the 28 voters that stuck with USC? The talent pool is never ending, and six straight finishes at the top is hard to ignore.

The Media Poll has correctly selected the winner of the Pac-10 for nine years in a row, and is 26 of 48 in doing so all time. Here are the results of the poll; 10 points for 1st, nine points for 2nd, eight points for 3rd, etc.

1. USC (28 first place votes)… 316 points
2. California (3 first place votes)… 277 points
3. Oregon (1 first place vote)… 250 points
4. Oregon State… 216 points
5. Arizona State… 155 points
6. Stanford… 150 points
7. UCLA… 145 points
8. Arizona… 142 points
9. Washington… 74 points
10. Washington State… 35 points

Unfortunately,’s invitation to media day apparently got lost in the mail this year. Alas, there is always next year. Just for fun, here is how the two of us would have voted had we filled out a ballot today.

Dave Sam
1. USC 1. USC
2. California 2. California
3. Oregon 3. Oregon
4. Oregon State 4. Oregon State
5. Stanford 5. Arizona State
6. Arizona 6. Arizona
7. Arizona State 7. Stanford
9. Washington 9. Washington
10. Washington State 10. Washington State

Those top four and bottom two teams seem pretty engrained in almost everyone’s heads; as for the middle of the pack, we’ll probably be mixing and matching for the whole month of August.

  27. One more thing. It’s my opinion that there are lots of travel insurance websites of respectable companies that allow you enter your journey details and obtain you the insurance quotes. You can also purchase the actual international holiday insurance policy online by using your own credit card. All you need to do is always to enter your travel particulars and you can view the plans side-by-side. You only need to find the package that suits your finances and needs and after that use your bank credit card to buy the item. Travel insurance online is a good way to search for a respectable company for international travel cover. Thanks for discussing your ideas.
