Wrong, the Final Four is not doable. Cal has played a Final Four caliber team four times this year, and is 0-4 against them. Throw in Pepperdine and Duke, and they're 1-5, although Duke and Pepperdine will have to spring upsets to get to the Final Four.
Like mike said, the Bears will have to pull an upset just to get to Illinois, not to mention win two more matches against teams ranked higher than Cal to get to the semis. There is nowhere to hide in the Round of 16, Washington won't be there. This also isn't college basketball. The teams at the top almost never lose to teams ranked more than about 5 spots below them.
