indycrimsonYou are soooo delusional.A team that lost AT
HOME to CSN and Sac St. wouldn't stand a chance of winning 12 games in the
WCC. BEST case scenario would be getting swept by Gonzaga, BYU, St.
Mary's, and Santa Clara, and splits with SF, Pepperdine, LMU, Portland and
SD, for a 5-win conference record, and 13-win season.The WCC placed
3 teams in the Big Dance in 2012 (33% of the conference). The PAC 12 only placed
two teams in the tourney (17%).Of course, since the Utes have no
chance of being part of the post season equation for a long time, it really
doesn't matter how well the other teams of the PAC do anyway.
CFT...I think Utah will beat USC at both locations. I think they will
split with WA, WASt, ORSt, AZSt, and CAL. I have them with 7 wins in the PAC12.
A 15 win season! No post season.If they were in the Whimpy Crumby
Conference (WCC) they would beat Port, SF, SD, Pepp, LMU 2 times. Lose to BYU,
Gonzaga 2 times. And split with Mary and Clara so it would be a 12 win season
with 8 wins in preseason...or 20 games.Lets see if I'm right.
Thanks for asking!
The Utes are improved and should keep games closer, but 4-14 in conference seems
re: indycrimson - "no real standouts (in the PAC) after Arizona". Does
this mean the Utes are going to take it to the teams in the conference just like
they did the Yotes and Willamette? I can't wait.Personally,
I'm still predicting a big improvement over last year - 4 conferences wins,
1 more than last year.Good luck.
