    I guess Vegas has knowledge that both Dre and Mayor are coming back.

    That is basically Vegas ranking us #12 in the country in the pre-season rankings. Too bad we're not in a decent season opener tourney, would be nice for the RPI number again as well.

    Damn, should have placed my future bet in Vegas during the Pac 12 tourney. We were like a 100/1 favorite at that point.

    Yup. We were 125/1for the 2013 tourney but 100/1 on the futures at the time (at least at NYNY)

    Damn, you should've. I was there last weekend and would have definitely bet the 2014 championship if I knew that. Isn't the 2013 championship still a futures bet (that's why I asked based on your previous post)?

    I suppose so, but NYNY had 2014 up at the same time. Need to go back and drop the bets though, the Buffs were around 500/1 for the BCS in football.

    Beat kansas in Boulder and the RPI should be ok barring any bad ooc losses.

    I wouldn't take a futures market with ridiculous vig as indicative of anything on that front. They put everyone shorter than they should be. It's not like a point spread where if they are off, you can take the other side. So they just assume things like Dre and Spencer coming back and then put up a number without a whole lot of thought. That said, I do think that with both players back we are a top 15 type team next year so this isn't completely shocking.

    It will be interesting to see how Boyle handles his first year with high expectations.

    Let's wait to see what happens to Dre & The Mayor in regards to the draft before we assume he'll have high expectations.

    Lots of respect for the PAC on that list, Zona', Oregon, UCLA showing up as well. Based on these expectations it's going to be a tough league next year.

    Pac-12 Full Court Press gave us some serious love in there look ahead to next season.

    "Best starting 5 in the conference"

    "Starting five filled with future pro's"

    "Best team in the conference"

    "Whole package is there for this team, the team that will be favored in the conference"

    "Watch the improvement of Xavier Johnson and how good that gets this off season"


    The expectations are going to be huge.
