Really excited for this season. Arizona may be the most balanced team in the country with the addition of a true point guard and a real stud in the freshman Gordon. I like how the Utes match up with UCLA, UW, Wazzu, ASU, OSU and Cal. The others, who knows? Stanford was a matchup nightmare for Utah last year. USC is a little like Utah was last year; they can be good, but are really inconsistent. It would take really good games to beat Oregon and CU, but they showed last year they are capable. Arizona just looks too good, but maybe an off night for them and a great game from the Utes could collide.
