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.
If you think this way it is what will happen. The Bears believe though, trust me they believe. Do not be shocked at a final four run.
