Oregon didn’t lose today, but they only beat 3-8 Texas Southern by 6. They were 27.5 point favorites. But the buffs are doomed because they didn’t play good against Sacramento State.Love the usual suspects this last week crying about how doomed CU is because the conference is filled with so many teams better than us. Then all those “powerhouses“ get it handed to them today.
Good stuff, Goose.PAC-12 teams in KenPom “Tier A/B” games:

Wazzu - 0
First comment is TCU choking cost us a tier A game. Currently, Clemson isn’t A or B, although with help from the ACC that should change.
Secondly there will be lots of changes as we’ll see some of the lesser teams move into a tier B as they beat up on their weaker conference opponents.
Good stuff, Goose.
What is the dividing line for A vs B?
Oh, and wtf wazzu. That be a goose egg yer totin'.

Transitioning under a new coach and system, mostly. As always they have talent, but when I've watched them they don't seem to have bought in or learned to play together yet. So far, they've been an awful jump shooting team. I don't believe that UCLA can't shoot (especially with Alford's recruiting priorities that built most of this roster), so I'm looking at them as the team from the Pac-12's bottom 3 that has the potential to figure it out and turn into a real problem for the teams above them. They've been a mess, though.Wtf is UCLA's problem? I haven't really watched them play.
Arizona gets a bump over us since we only play them once and it's in Tucson. They get a nice scheduling advantage there. On the positive side, we don't have to make a Washington trip this year and get them in Boulder.KenPom projections (note: percentages include share of conference title so total can equal more than 100%)
Oregon* 45 percent
Arizona 36 percent
Colorado 30 percent
Washington 12 percent
To that point, KP points out with the clear top 3, Oregon takes a hit because they’re the only one that plays the other two the full four times.Arizona gets a bump over us since we only play them once and it's in Tucson.
