Wow, Wilner is going off the deep with this projection here. This is what he has to say about Arizona.

5. Arizona
The toughest team in the conference to project because of the range of potential outcomes. In a best-case scenario, Sean Miller never takes the stand in the federal trial next week, the wiretap contents never become public, Miller remains as coach, the 5-star recruits (Nico Mannion and Josh Green) enroll as expected, other key pieces return, NCAA sanctions are limited or nonexistent, and the Wildcats return to the top of the conference. In a worst-case scenario, it all goes kaboom starting Monday: Miller gets fired, the recruits never set foot on campus, and the program is cast to the scrap heap for several seasons. We split the difference with this projection. It’s all TBD.

I'd give him a D+.  He could've drawn a lot more interest in the story about fabrications if he would have said, " This year's Wildcats could win the national championship or Coach Miller could be fired and the team forced to play shuffle board!
He needs to talk to the guy that fabricated Miller's crime(s)...get some help with that imagination!

Isn’t placing Arizona at 5 admitting on his part that his ranking is complete BS? I mean, Arizona is either going to win the conference (likely) or finish at the bottom. Saying you’re going to “split” means he ranked a team in a spot it definitely won’t be in, and thus, no matter what happens, his ranking for the entire conference is flawed and incorrect.

He’s unable to see the very simple flaw in his own logic, but thinks Arizona fans are myopic?!?

Exactly.  If he wanted to play it safe and wait until we "knew" Miller's fate...don't write a stupid article that predicts the final standings (11 months from now).  Just wait 30 days to put Arizona at the top...or the bottom of the list.

Winner is 100% correct about AZ fans myopia... really think, en mass, everyone is living in some of bubble. Miller and AZ will be heavily sanctioned by the NCAA and it does not help that we've added so much fuel to the fire with all the petty B.S. like what Phelps did, etc...ad naseum

Please revisit this issue when the #1 class shows up but can't play in the post season because of NCAA sanctions and we loose scholarships in 2020 and beyond.   

Miller has been and will be embattled and distracted with the lawyers, federal prosecutors, FBI, NCAA and the regents have AZ BB as a permanent agenda item (they met this past week).  And we all saw the results of that. He bolted from Oregon and its hard to tell this past year if he's just a terrible coach or completely distracted, but clearly his leadership was like the CEO who decided 'New Coke' was good idea captaining the Titanic.

It would not be a very fun year if 'everything went Kaboom', but if it doesn't its not gonna be a very fun decade. I vote for Kaboom.

So...is he going to update this list or continue to sit on the fence?
It’s one thing to make the ignorant statement, but if I were him, I wouldn’t be trying to double down on it.

Someone should check on Liquid brains... been a tough couple of weeks for him between Virginia winning the Natty with a pack line defense, and Arizona not going “kaboom”.
