Predict the 2013 Cal Football Season: Summer Edition

New, 46 comments

It's time for our final round of 2013 season predictions. Will Cal live up to those last-place season predictions or will Sonny Dykes guide the Bears to the top of the conference?

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

We did it Cal fans. We survived another offseason. The season kicks off at the end of the month and a new era begins in Berkeley. With a few weeks left before kickoff, its time for another round of our semi-annual season predictions.

Grizzled veterans should know what to do, but our newer readers (welcome!) should read through the instructions. Instead of being interested in whether Cal wins or loses, we're interested in the chance that the Bears will win. If you believe the Bears have a 99.9% chance of beating Portland State, enter ".999" on the form. If you think Cal has 50% chance at beating Northwestern, enter ".5" in the appropriate box. And so forth. Please keep your submissions between 0.00 and 1.00 or else my magical number-crunching machine will experience an integer overflow and it will be my job to clean up the mess. I don't want to clean up any messes, so follow the instructions!

If you're feeling adventurous you can add up your percentages to get an expected number of wins. We encourage you to post them in the comments and discuss your rationale behind your picks. The deadline to submit your predictions is Friday August 23rd. We will post the results during Northwestern Week.

Thank you for your participation!
