    Lunardi did his 2016 Bracketology. Only four Pac-12 teams and Oregon is the very last team in the field.

    He has AZ as a 3 seed, Utah a 5, UCLA a 10 and Oregon an 11 and playing in a play-in game. No other teams mentioned at all in the first eight out.

    Another down year for the league. If the Buffs get their **** together, there should be room at the top of the league.

    No way Utah is as good as last year, they are losing Delon Wright, who made them a lot better than they really were. They have some nice pieces, but not enough for a 5 seed.

    Also, I don't see AZ as good as last year either because they are losing their two best players in McConnell and Hollis-Jefferson. Yes, Miller recruits lights out, but those two are really hard to replace because of the defense and offense they brought.

    UCLA and Oregon are about right, but UCLA lost Looney and Oregon lost Young, so it will be wide open next year with the Buffs returining everyone.

    Unfortunately, it will be another down year for the Pac 12, but until Tad can figure out a way to fix the offense or bring in an assistant who can, I don't see anything changing. We will probably finish bottom third in the league once again. Our offensive execution is the main reason for our struggles this year. Our guys don't value possessions.

    I would argue or biggest problem last year was defense. We didn't get stops, which means less rebounds, less transition offense attempts and more losses.

    Agreed, but I would say our offense was one of the worst in conference, and our defense, while not as good as the previous two years, keep us in some games.
