Splits.

Most predict Cal to finish 7-5. How do you predict the Home/Away win split?

Rob Hwang: Im pumping sunshine all the way until fall camp starts. We go UNDFEATED AT HOME. We lose to ONLY Arizona on the road.

PUMP PUMP PUMP IT UP.

Piotr Le: I think we’re going to lose against Washington and Oregon at home and lose to USC and Arizona away. The 5th loss will either be against Furd (sigh) or Colorado at the final stretch of the season.

boomtho: My prediction for the schedule is:

vs UNC WIN

@BYU LOSS

vs Idaho State WIN

vs Oregon LOSS

@Arizona WIN

vs UCLA WIN

@OSU WIN

vs UW LOSS

@WSU LOSS

@USC LOSS

vs Furd LOSS

vs Colorado WIN

So that gets me to 6-6 (vs 7-5) with a 4-3 home record and a 2-3 road record. Assuming I can count, that is.

Andy Johnston: Stealing the BoomTho format here.

vs UNC WIN@BYU LOSSvs Idaho State WIN

vs Oregon WIN

@Arizona LOSS

vs UCLA WIN@OSU WINvs UW LOSS

@WSU WIN

@USC LOSS

vs Furd WIN

vs Colorado WIN

Home: 6-1

Away: 2-3

Eight wins are coming, BOOK IT!

Berkelium97:

Home: UNC, Idaho State, Oregon, UCLA, Washington, LSJU, Colorado

I’m expecting 4 wins here, although I wouldn’t be surprised if we get 5.

Away: BYU, Arizona, OSU, WSU, USC

Winning 2 of these will likely be necessary to get to a bowl game. Fortunately many of these teams are in flux because they have new coaches (Arizona, OSU), new QBs (WSU, USC, OSU), and/or are coming off bad seasons (BYU, OSU). I’m expecting 3 wins here but, again, wouldn’t be surprised to get 4.

So if I had to break our 7 wins down into home and away, I’ll say 4 home wins and 3 road wins.

Nik Jam: The home schedule is difficult with underdog games against Oregon, UW and Stanford, coin flips against UCLA and UNC and favorites against Colorado and Idaho State. Anything less than 4 wins would be a disappointment and I don’t see that happening. In fact, if the Bears want to get a bowl game they better win 5 because...

With BYU and OSU the only road games where the Bears should be reasonably favored, and neither are sure things, the Bears need to do well at home to avoid having must-wins at WSU and USC. (And we know what a nightmare Arizona can be)

If the Bears go 7-5, 5-2 at home and 2-3 on the road is my guess.
