    Well folks here we, 12 months later we head bck to Arizona and do so down a couple of our best players but coming off a crushing victory over USC. There are still a lot of questions to ba answered for this re-contitued Buffs squad but as always InTadWeTrust.

    The line on this game opened at 15.5 and to say that the Buffs are underdogs in this one would be an understatement. Arizona is #1 in the land and the only team in the pac-12 that is more ferocious than the Buffs inside.

    Hopefully the team sees that and it helps build the chip on their shoulders.

    I'm pretty sure that every team in the country would be a 5 point or more dog at UA right now. But 15 1/2 is very high. I thought it would be in the 9-11 range.

    it's at 14 now, been as low as 13.5. O/U is at 131.5

    KenPom has it at 16 - (74-58)

    I've been less than satisfied with some of what KenPom does. His metrics are spectacular for what they're designed for. But I think as he has expanded out with ranking teams overall, predicting scores, etc. that it's become about as useful as RPI, BPI, Sagarin or any of the others.

    I've actually been tacking this - vegas basically mimics his opening line. his prediction vs the vegas opening line has less than a 1 point differential this year.

    Whatever you do, don't go over to GoAZCats or PointGuardU. They have a very irrational, inexplicably deep hatred toward Tad that makes me wonder if they truly respect anyone.

    Just got off the phone with my mom. To end the conversation the last thing she said was "Roll Tad." Last time that happened; we beat Kansas.

    We have 4 guys under the hoop and 1 AZ guy gets the damned rebound. Pathetic.
