    This is, every year, by far the best preview available. It's worth the money people. And because it's worth the money (and because it's protected), I'm not going to copy & paste stuff. But here are some tidbits to wet your beak so you go and buy it.

    Pac-12:
    1.) Arizona (#2 in nation)
    2.) Stanford (#22 in nation)
    3.) Utah
    4.) Colorado
    5.) UCLA
    6.) Cal
    7.) Washington
    8.) Arizona State
    9.) USC
    10.) Oregon
    11.) Washington State
    12.) Oregon State

    All-Conference Team:
    * Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Arizona
    * Josh Scott, Colorado
    * Chasson Randle, Stanford
    * Delon Wright, Utah
    * Joseph Young, Oregon

    POY: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Arizona

    Newcomer of Year: Stanley Johnson, Arizona

    Best Backcourts:
    1.) Arizona
    2.) Utah
    3.) Cal

    Best Frontcourts:
    1.) Arizona
    2.) Colorado
    3.) UCLA

    Really nice write-up on CU. Expects us to challenge for the 2nd spot in the conference behind Arizona.

    EDIT - link to buy:

    Stanford still eating out on that win over KU in the tournament, I see.

    I just don't buy either Utah or Stanford at the #2 spot. I think we get Cal/Stanford at home this year, with UO/OSU on the road. Frankly, I think we should win all four of those games.

    Talent wise - I totally buy Furd.

    But they can't be trusted.

    On paper, they look legit. Dawkins is holding them back.

    1) Arizona
    2) Colorado
    3) UCLA
    4) Stanford
    5) Utah

    I think Stanford and Utah will have more trouble winning road games than my top 3.

    Don't buy Furd that high. Dawkins will revert back to the norm.

    I say pump up Stanford as high as possible so the fall is greater

    Do they actually get press clippings at Stanford, or do they come over as electronic messages? I mean, for locker room material, do they have a bunch of iPads sitting on everybody's locker with instant access to opponents quotes?

    Chasson Randle and a bunch of FR, led by Dawkins....Hmmmmm....not buying it.

    Utah, on the other hand, is legit: everybody of note back from a team that beat UCLA and took Az and CU to OT.

    Agreed. Utah scares me. Stanford does not.
