Free: Pac-10 Tournament Predictor Contest
With the seeds for the 2007 Pacific Life Pac-10 Tournament bracket finally determined, BearTerritory is proud to announce the first-ever Pac-10 Predictor Contest. This is a simple competition that challenges fans to predict the 9 upcoming Pac-10 Tournament games at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Think you can nail all 9 games? A different Pac-10 team has won the conference tournament title in each of the past five seasons, which dates back to its reinstatement at the conclusion of the Pac-10 regular season. The previous winners were Arizona in 2002, Oregon in 2003, Stanford in 2004, Washington in 2005, and UCLA in 2006.
Who will win the Pac-10 Tournament Championship, plus the automatic bid to the 2007 NCAA Tournament? Can you predict all the games ahead of time? Give it a shot - it is completely free.
The overall winner (which is who predicts the most games correctly, plus the closest to the final score of the championship game) will receive one of the most unique Cal memorabilia items ever produced; one (1) 28-page 2007 Calography, signed by none other than California head coach Jeff Tedford. That's right, an autographed version. Only 15 serial numbered, signed, and authenticated segments were ever produced, so this is truly a very limited album.
The 2007 Calography is not just a simple collection of images. A 28-page recruiting bio and photo guide of the entire 2007 Cal Recruiting Class, the segment is printed on 11 x 17 high-glossy black photo paper which is bound on the left hand side of each print. It captures every future Golden Bear prospect in a different light, while also denoting their individual prep backgrounds and Rivals rankings. The signed copies feature a photo of Coach Tedford signing the segment, plus a certificate of authenticity.
What did the Cal football staff think about the segment?
"This is one very impressive piece – extremely well done. It has our entire class, and they are absolutely phenomenal pictures too. The size of this document is powerful. It could easily be a centerpiece for our recruiting class. Terrific job." – Head Coach Jeff Tedford
"This is big-time work. I've never seen anything like this. Honestly, this is just really cool. I am going to take this home to show." – Assistant Coach Ron Gould
