Huskies are #26 and Buffs are #27 so they are right there but yes itís clear no one respects the PAC 12 still. Oh well

USC just beat a top 10 Villanova team but only gets 2 votes? I know its only an exhibition but the lack of respect for the PAC is obvious.

Being ranked only helps the Arizona brand.
At the end of it all, I want to be ranked heading into the NCAA Tournament.
That SHOULD mean we get a top 4 seed, and have a nice bracket to play in.

The fact that the PAC 12 can only get 2 teams in the top 25 is a bit absurd.  When strength of schedule has weight in the decision of who gets to the dance, puts every team in the conference at a disadvantage.  The administration overseeing the conference has completely failed the kids.  Mind boggling these guys have jobs.

I am just absolutely baffled....

Ok I get that the PAC12 needs to show the world something this year - we were HORRIBLE last year as a conference, worst power 5 conference ever, for sure.

But Washington has more 5 star players than we do or Oregon does and a better coach than we do. None of them are proven or disproven yet, but if recruiting rankings mean anything, how in the heck are they not top 10?

I also just cannot understand Colorado. They have two returning players, Wright and Bey and neither would start for us, Oregon, USC or Washington. Their coach is mediocre and they had the 12the best recruiting class in the conference and they finished in 7th place last year and lost 3 starters. 27TH? Really?!

Cbssports ranks also ranks Arizona at #21

#21 Arizona
Buying a lot of Arizona stock heading into the season. Sean Miller's program won't be dinged until 2020-21, and Nico Mannion might be one of the five or six best point guards in the sport this season. Fellow frosh Josh Green, who may well turn into a 2020 first-rounder, is a top-100 player. The addition of UC Irvine grad transfer Max Hazzard makes this team all the more appealing. The only backcourt maybe better than Arizona's in the Pac-12 is up in Boulder, Colorado. Not Final Four hopefuls, but I expect the Wildcats to easily land a single-digit seed after a season away from the NCAA Tournament
