    I know everyone has been talking about our predicted finish, but what about a complete predicted regular PAC-12 season finish. I know it's a little premature without everyone's complete schedules out, but based on talent left and incoming freshman/transfers what does everyone think?

    I think the Pac-12 is going to end up looking like this:
    1)Arizona 2)Colorado 3)UCLA 4)Standford 5)Washington 6)Oregon 7)CAL 8)Washington State 9)USC 10)Oregon State 11)Utah 12 ASU

    I am also tempted to switch us with UA just because I feel like we are a deeper team than UA. I am also skeptical about UCLA because of their attitudes and their lack ability to mesh well with one another. I think Washington also might fall farther then expected because of their loses in Wooten and Ross. They also were unable to really reload with some new young shooting guards. I feel like Stanford has a solid core and may surprise some people. I really feel like we have a good chance to win the regular season this year around. Everyone else is basically in our wake at the moment.

    I can't wait for the season to start, GO BUFFS.

    My completely uninformed guess right now:

    1.) Arizona
    2.) UCLA
    3.) Stanford
    4.) Washington
    5.) Oregon
    6.) Colorado
    7.) USC
    8.) Cal
    9.) Washington State
    10.) Oregon State
    11.) Arizona State
    12.) Utah

    And honestly, Washington State and USC could surprise people a bit this year too. The conference isn't back, but it's tougher than last year.

    OK, I've seen a few people put UCLA at #1. I'm curious why. Is it Shabazz & Anderson? Do you have hope that Josh Smith finally pulls his head out of his ass? Do you think Howland will finally have his water at the exact right temperature? I'm honestly curious because while I like the frosh they have coming in, I think that team just screams "underachievers" to me, and I think they'll be closer to Stanford at #3 than Zona at #1.

    5th and 6th? Tad ****ing Boyle is the coach. No way we finish there.

    I understand OOC doesn't count towards conference standing....I think a young team will struggle on the road just like CU teams have in the past

    We will peak by conference tournament...and that is really all that matters as long as we don't throw some dud losses in there, which I don't think we will

    I'm also confused by UW in 4th. Didn't they lose two first round picks? It's time to have confidence in Boyle and expecting big things from this team, young or not. Anything less than 25 wins this season will be disappointing.

    I have extreme confidence in Boyle....but if you asked him I bet he would say the same thing....learning to win on the road consistently is when this team will become elite...and I believe this year will be the learning curve year

    Of course he would, he's the coach. Extreme confidence in Boyle and a 5th place finish in a weak PAC 12 don't make sense.

    Just because you say it's weak doesn't make it true.

    1. 'Zona (loads of talent)
    2. fUcla (talent, and they'll be playing in Pauley this year)
    3. furd (height/length pose problems)
    4. CU

    5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 -- doesn't matter

    Pac 12 is top heavy...Arizona, UCLA, Washington, Stanford and CU are a step above the rest

    Who does UW return? They lost two massive pieces to their team.

    They have some serious frontline size and are just a bad matchup for Colorado in Washington

    We have also seriously upgrade our frontline size with Gordon and Scott. I was not impressed one bit with N'Diaye when I saw him. The transfer from Florida International wasn't impressive either averaging just 2.6 ppg and 2.4 rpg. The transfer from San Fran looks pretty good but overall their big men seem meh.

    In the same breath we also could have easily finished 2nd or 3rd (can't remember which one) had we not went on scoreless streaks that lasted forever.

    I feel if we don't win the Pac-12 again this year, it will be very hard to win again. I honestly think we need to win this year, if not the regular season the Tourney. We need multiple wins in the Ncaa Tourney to reach the sweet 16. We get there we will land top notch recruits. With getting to the sweet 16, taddy and the boys and recruit lights out. In order to keep the momentum we need to best last year.











    p.s. We also need to beat the **** out of Bailer in the CC.

    But we didn't, did we? It is there not inconceivable that a Tad Boyle team finish 5th in the Pac 12.
