Friday night means another team-by-team projection of a major college basketball conference for the 2014-15 season, and this week we're looking at the Pac-12.
Clearly, T.J. McConnell and company are pretty excited about being in the driver's seat for the Pac-12 title after winning it last season, but which teams have the best chance of challenging them?
And are we headed for another six-bid season for the Pac-12, or will they revert to the two bids received in the 2012 tournament?
This conference is absolutely loaded with turnover from last season. Of the 12 teams, nine are losing at least three key players, and six teams are losing five or more key players.
Oregon takes the cake by losing eight players who logged at least 300 minutes last season, but that certainly doesn't mean the Ducks are headed for last place—they might not even miss the NCAA tournament.
In ranking the teams, we looked at outgoing seniors, incoming freshmen, D-I transfers, JUCO transfers, redshirts and projected starting fives. For better or worse, no stone was left unturned.
We look forward to your civilized disagreements about the order in which these teams will finish.
