Ummmm, yeah...

The No. 12 Golden Bears start the season at the top of the list because on paper, they're loaded and they've displayed few weaknesses during the offseason and trouncing D-II Chico State 84-42 in their lone exhibition.

This year, mostly because the team's senior-heavy roster has had more time to learn the nuances of second-year coach Mike Montgomery's system, Cal has been tabbed as a squad that should contend for the conference title.
- Jeff Goodman, The Daily Californian

...the California Golden Bears have so much returning talent. The Pac-10 favorite has a solid, experienced backcourt in Jerome Randle and Patrick Christopher. Mike Montgomery's team will be heard from all season long.
- Dick Vitale, ESPN

Cal nearly gets clobbered by that powerhouse Murray State.
- M2M

Should have thought twice if freaking Dickie V liked them.
