Looks like some of the teams we may have thought would be "door-mats" are actually beating ranked teams. Stay tuned.
Furd, Cal, ucla are a cut above the rest. Colorado can be tough playing home game at altitude. However, Furd, Cal and fucla have good talent to go with good coaching. However, I expect the games to be much tougher and the Pac-12 to show real improvement. So, we can expect upsets. However, if the Bears play smart, they should finish in the top three. Hopefully, we play well enough to stay in the top 12-15 so we can earn a favorable seeding in the tournament. It's all about health, maturity and confidence with this team. Duke is water under the bridge. But, beating Kansas on Friday will help in many ways, now and in the post-season.
