    Arizona - Ryan Anderson
    Arizona State - Tra Holder
    Cal - Tyrone Wallace
    Colorado - Josh Scott
    Oregon - Dillon Brooks
    Oregon State - Gary Payton II
    Stanford - Rosco Allen
    UCLA - Tony Parker
    USC - Katin Reinhardt
    Utah - Jakob Poeltl
    Washington - Andrew Andrews
    Washington State - Josh Hawkinson


    Jake Shapiro - BSNDenver.com
    Arizona - Gabe York
    Arizona State - Tra Holder
    Cal - Ivan Rabb
    Colorado - Wes Gordon
    Oregon - Tyler Dorsey
    Oregon State - Gary Payton II
    Stanford - Reid Travis
    UCLA - Bryce Alford
    USC - Julian Jacobs
    Utah - Jakob Poeltl
    Washington - Andrew Andrews
    Washington State - Josh Hawkinson


    Ryan Koenigsberg - BSNDenver.com
    Arizona - Allonzo Trier
    Arizona State - Tra Holder
    Cal - Jaylen Brown
    Colorado - Josh Fortune
    Oregon - Tyler Dorsey
    Oregon State - Tres Tinkle
    Stanford - Michael Humphrey
    UCLA - Issac Hamilton
    USC - Bennie Boatwright
    Utah - Jordan Loveridge
    Washington - Andrew Andrews
    Washington State - Ike Iroegbu


    Will Whelan - BuffStampede.com
    Arizona - Allonzo Trier
    Arizona State - Savon Goodman
    Cal - I mean...everyone is hyped up so much already. Ivan Rabb is a beast though.
    Colorado - Dominique Collier (shocker)
    Oregon - Chris Boucher
    Oregon State - Steven Thompson Jr.
    Stanford - Johnny Dawkins. I haven’t seen a coach on their sideline in a decade.
    UCLA - Jonah Bolden
    USC - Julian Jacobs
    Utah - Kyle Kuzma
    Washington - Marquese Chriss
    Washington State - I mean...it’s three guys. We know them, right?


    Tyler Ziskin - BuffStampede.com
    Arizona - Gabe York. He will need to be a consistent threat for the Wildcats to win the conference. He hasn't shown that ability in conference play yet but someone has to take the reigns in that backcourt.

    Arizona State - Tra Holder. College hoops is a PG driven sport and few have improved as quickly as he has.

    Cal - Jaylen Brown. Cal doesn't have much depth but they know what they're getting night in and night out from their other starters. Brown must develop a well rounded game for the Bears to exceed their preseason high hopes.

    Colorado - Josh Fortune. He's come a "Josh of all trades"... If he can consistently pour in outside shots and continue to mold himself into the Buffs best perimeter player this team will finish top 6 in the Pac-12.

    Oregon - PG Dylan Ennis. He is now back in the lineup, perfect timing for a ducks team poised to make a big run in conference play.

    Oregon State - Gary Payton II. Boring pick but simply put this team goes as he goes.

    Stanford - Reid Travis is the guy here. They haven't been getting enough from the highly touted big man who hasn't been able to hit FTs or avoid turning the ball over.

    UCLA - Tony Parker is finally ready to lead this team. Averaging a double double isn't easy in college and with this kid on the floor UCLA is especially dangerous.

    USC - Julian Jacobs. One of my favorite players in the Pac-12 and arguably the most underrated. He does it all for this team.

    Utah - Brandon Taylor. His reliance on Delon Wright quickly became apparent this season. He needs to find a bigger role on the team for this program to reach expectation this season.

    Washington - Dejounte Murray. You probably haven't heard of him, but you will. This kid is as versatile as anyone in the conference and is super fun to watch.

    Washington State - Ike Oroegbu. The speedy undersized guard has completely transformed his game since coming to college and is a legit threat.


    Buffnik - AllBuffs
    Arizona - Ryan Anderson, the BC transfer has more than filled the void left at forward

    Arizona State - Tra Holder, makes everything go for ASU

    Cal - Jordan Matthews, not the headline guy, but the guy who can open up the court with his shooting

    Colorado - Dom Collier, his development as a front line PG will determine how good the Buffs are this year

    Oregon - Dillon Brooks, leading team in scoring and hasn't even found his stroke yet

    Oregon State - Gary Payton II, most important player to his team in the conference

    Stanford - Rosco Allen, very solid senior front court guy who efficiently does it all for Furd

    UCLA - Thomas Welsh, when he gets it going in the post (UNLV & Kentucky), Bruins become elite

    USC - Jordan McLaughlin, maybe the highest upside PG in the Pac-12

    Utah - Jakob Poeltl, the key to Utah's success every game this year, it goes through him

    Washington - Andrew Andrews, all-name team and I've loved his game for a while

    Washington State - Josh Hawkinson, very impressive post player in a year with a lot of good bigs in the
    Pac-12


    Goose - AllBuffs
    Arizona - Ryan Anderson
    Arizona State - Tra Holder
    Cal - Ty Wallace
    Colorado - Dom Collier
    Oregon - Dylan Ennis
    Oregon State - Gary Payton II
    Stanford - Dorian Pickens
    UCLA - Thomas Welsh
    USC - Jordan McLaughlin
    Utah - Jakob Poeltl
    Washington - Andrew Andrews
    Washington State - Josh Hawkinson


    Rumblin - AllBuffs
    Arizona - Ryan Anderson
    Arizona State - Willie Atwood
    Cal - Ty Wallace
    Colorado - Brett Brady
    Oregon - Chris Boucher
    Oregon State - Gary Payton II
    Stanford - the Tree
    UCLA - Bryce Alford
    USC - Jordan McLaughlin
    Utah - Jakob Poeltl
    Washington - Andrew Andrews
    Washington State - Josh Hawkinson


    jgisland - AllBuffs
    Arizona - Allonzo Trier
    Arizona State - Tra Holder, b/c at any minute Hurley may strangle him
    Cal - Pick a frosh by game Rabb/Brown
    Colorado - J40
    Oregon - Tyler Dorsey... what could have been...
    Oregon State - Gary Payton Jr.
    Stanford - Dorian Pickens
    UCLA - Thomas Welsh – ohh that mid-range game
    USC - Jordan McLaughlin
    Utah - Jakob Poeltl
    Washington - Andrew Andrews
    Washington State - Josh Hawkinson


    CVilleBuff - AllBuffs
    Arizona - Ryan Anderson
    Arizona State - Tra Holder
    Cal - Ivan Rabb -- He's a special piece on a freakishly athletic Cal squad. Seems to have a special knack for offensive rebounds from what I saw against UVA.

    Colorado - Josh Scott
    Oregon - Dillon Brooks
    Oregon State - Gary Payton Jr.
    Stanford - Rosco Allen
    UCLA - Bryce Alford
    USC - Katin Reinhardt
    Utah - Jakob Poetl
    Washington - Andrew Andrews
    Washington State - Josh Hawkinson -- Wazzu struggles, but keep an eye on Hawkinson. He's completely overlooked.

    Surprise Riser Team in Pac-12?

    Andrew Haubner - CU Independent - Oregon State

    Adam Munsterteiger - BuffStampede.com - Oregon State

    Jake Shapiro - BSNDenver.com - USC

    Ryan Koenigsberg - BSNDenver.com - USC

    Will Whelan - BuffStampede.com - I think this is the year USC makes teams pay for those close games they’ve lost, but if it has to be a surprise, it’s Arizona State. The fighting Bobby Hurley’s are tough as hell.

    Tyler Ziskin - BuffStampede.com - Arizona State. They've quickly put together arguably the best resume of any bubble team in the Pac12 and I'm very impressed with the early returns on Bobby Hurley. This team plays hard, and they will absolutely beat a few teams they shouldn't in Pac12 play.

    Buffnik - AllBuffs - Oregon State

    Goose - AllBuffs - Oregon State

    Rumblin - AllBuffs - USC - The Pac-12 is very deep this year, but most of those involved are familiar faces. Even Oregon State showed they had a pule last season, before a tough final stretch stunted their growth. The Trojans, however, have been a true doormat since the expansion to 12 teams. That will not be the case this winter, however. USC has proven to be a competent ballclub through non-conference play, and could fight for a middle-of-the-pack finish. Maybe "Captain Bucktooth"... er, Andy Enfield, has a clue, after all.

    jgisland - AllBuffs - ASU - Hulrey is going to make them relevant in a hurry.

    CVilleBuff - AllBuffs - Tough call as I think there are numerous teams better than expected. As a result, it may limit teams finishing wildly above where they were selected. However, I've been impressed with ASU. Hurley has come in and injected immediate life. The Sun Devils already boast wins over the likes of a ranked (#17 at the time) Texas A&M side, UNLV, NC State, and Creighton.

    Surprise Disappointment Team in Pac-12?


    Andrew Haubner
    - CU Independent
    - UCLA

    Andrew Haubner - CU Independent - Stanford

    Jake Shapiro - BSNDenver.com - CAL

    Ryan Koenigsberg - BSNDenver.com - Arizona

    Will Whelan - BuffStampede.com - If anyone disappoints, it’s going to be Cal. No doubt.

    Tyler Ziskin - BuffStampede.com - Utah. Outside of Poeltl nothing about them scares me at all, and their guard play is especially suspect. If I had more gumption I'd pick the Buffs to finish ahead of them in the league.

    Buffnik - AllBuffs - Cal

    Goose - AllBuffs - Utah

    Rumblin - AllBuffs - Stanford - It's not all that surprising, per se, to see them dropping games with regularity,
    as the last few waves of talent have spent themselves upon the rocks, but Johnny Dawkins' squad is just... *meh*. I can't even bring myself to care about anyone on that roster. It's UW syndrome all over again. Bottom-quarter for a program that should be doing soooo much more.

    jgisland - AllBuffs - Stanford, just fire Dawkins already.

    CVilleBuff - AllBuffs - Stanford. It's not surprising that Stanford is mediocre under Dawkins. It's just surprising that they continue to tolerate it. This mediocre Stanford side stands to be one of the victims of such a deep Pac-12 this season.

    Player of the Year in Pac-12?


    Andrew Haubner - CU Independentt - Jakob Poeltl, Utah

    Adam Munsterteiger - BuffStampede.com - Gary Payton II, Oregon State

    Jake Shapiro - BSNDenver.com - Josh Scott, Colorado

    Ryan Koenigsberg - BSNDenver.com - Jakob Poeltl, Utah

    Will Whelan - BuffStampede.com - If Oregon finishes second, Dillon Brooks has a real shot at this,
    but I don’t see anyway Jakob Poeltl doesn’t get it at this point. He’s the conference’s best player by a wide margin.

    Tyler Ziskin - BuffStampede.com - Jakob Poeltl, Utah. Honestly this seems like a no brainer because everyone loves him and he's going to see a lot of touches because the rest of Utah's team is not that reliable. He's a monster on both ends, simple as that.

    Buffnik - AllBuffs - Jakob Poeltl, Utah

    Goose - AllBuffs - Jakob Poeltl, Utah

    Rumblin - AllBuffs - Josh Scott - I'm not kidding. The Buffs don't use him enough. He's special, and is playing like a special senior should be.

    jgisland - AllBuffs - Jakob Poeltl, Utah

    CVilleBuff - AllBuffs - Jakob Poeltl, Utah

    Coach of the Year in Pac-12?

    Andrew Haubner - CU Independentt - Wayne Tinkle, Oregon State

    Adam Munsterteiger - BuffStampede.com - Wayne Tinkle, Oregon State

    Jake Shapiro - BSNDenver.com - Andy Enfield, USC

    Ryan Koenigsberg - BSNDenver.com - Tad Boyle, Colorado

    Will Whelan - BuffStampede.com - This is the toughest award to decide. I think Sean Miller has a real chance.
    I hate his roster, and he’s got them in a position to win the conference again.

    Tyler Ziskin - BuffStampede.com - Bobby Hurley. If the Buffs do finish 5th as I predicted above than he deserves to win in my eyes, but Hurley gets the nod. They lost a ton of talent and had very little expectations and they have really impressed in the last month or so. If that trend continues I see him getting the worthy recognition in his first year in the league.

    Buffnik - AllBuffs - Wayne Tinkle, Oregon State

    Goose - AllBuffs - Wayne Tinkle, Oregon State

    Rumblin - AllBuffs - Sean Miller, Arizona. The man is a witch doctor. How are they always this good on the glass?

    jgisland - AllBuffs - Larry Krystkowiak, Utah. Miller can't win it every year, can he?

    CVilleBuff - AllBuffs - Bobby Hurley, Arizona State

    Freshman of the Year in Pac-12?


    Andrew Haubner - CU Independent - Allonzo Trier, Arizona

    Adam Munsterteiger - BuffStampede.com - Ivan Rabb, Cal

    Jake Shapiro - BSNDenver.com - Tyler Dorsey, Oregon

    Ryan Koenigsberg - BSNDenver.com - Tyler Dorsey, Oregon

    Will Whelan - BuffStampede.com - Tyler Dorsey, Oregon. If he stays healthy. Trier is a real threat at UA, but Dorsey does it all. Kid is the real deal.

    Tyler Ziskin - BuffStampede.com - Ivan Rabb, Cal. I picked Jaylen Brown to start the year but Rabb has proven to be the more reliable of the two to this point in the year. I really really wanted to pick Dejounte Murray here but I don't think Washington will make enough noise to garner enough votes.

    Buffnik - AllBuffs - Jaylen Brown, Cal

    Goose - AllBuffs - Allonzo Trier, Arizona

    Rumblin - AllBuffs - Tyler Dorsey, Oregon. I'm taking KEYSER SOZE over Jaylen Brown, mostly because I think Dorsey is thebetter player right now. Hampered a little by injuries, he's still a really nice, efficient fit in Eugene.

    jgisland - AllBuffs - Jaylen Brown, Cal

    CVilleBuff - AllBuffs - Ivan Rabb, Cal

    Defender of the Year in Pac-12?


    Andrew Haubner - CU Independent - Gary Payton II, Oregon State

    Adam Munsterteiger - BuffStampede.com - Gary Payton II, Oregon State

    Jake Shapiro - BSNDenver.com - Gary Payton II, Oregon State.... or Chris Boucher, Oregon

    Ryan Koenigsberg - BSNDenver.com - Gary Payton II, Oregon State

    Will Whelan - BuffStampede.com - Jakob Poeltl should get this. He’s sick. Seriously, I get quesey watching him move his feet.
    It’s a thing of drunken beauty.

    Tyler Ziskin - BuffStampede.com - Gary Payton II, Oregon State. There isn't even a contender. No one effects the defensive side of the ball like Payton. He may be the best perimeter defender in the entire country.

    Buffnik - AllBuffs - Gary Payton II, Oregon State

    Goose - AllBuffs - Gary Payton II, Oregon State

    Rumblin - AllBuffs - Gary Payton II, Oregon State. I think you have to give it to him, right?

    There are other strong candidates such as Andrew Andrews, but at the end of the day this is the most likely scenario if everyone remains healthy.

    This is the deepest the Pac has been since we joined and it's not even close. No one is elite, but the depth is outstanding. There is going to be cannibalization in conference play, but quality win opportunities are going to be numerous for everyone. ASU, OSU and USC will be in the bubble conversation, at least at some point.

    Thanks again to all that participated!

    So what do we think AllBuffs? Is @Goose decision to go against the grain and exclude Utah from the Dance a wise one? Does Brett Brady have pictures of @RumblinBuff he doesn't want to go public, or is his 'Players To Watch' pick for CU a legit one? Should we all tar and feather @jgisland for being the only member on the panel not to pick our beloved Buffs to go dancing? Is anyone else wondering how the hell to pronounce Poeltl?

    Let's see your picks. In the time honored AllBuffs tradition, prepare to be mocked later in the season.

    Much thanks to everyone who participated and especially to @Scotch for pulling this together.

    Looking forward to seeing some picks by others on all or part of it.

    @Goose looking good after week one with his Utah predicted slip.

    Funny thing with Cal. I picked them before the season to win the Pac-12 and then cooled on them in the non-conference season. But seeing their talent, that's the most talented team in the Pac-12 and has legit Final Four ability if they play defense like they did this week against CU and Utah.
