Good for Oregon.
Better for Arizona.
I want us to play the best possible schedule to set us up for a deep tournament run.
I want us to sweep the PAC (regular/tourney) and then at least an Elite Eight appearance.
So does the NCAA does automatically and uncritically grant waivers for every Oregon transfer? I remember Kazemi didn't have to wait out one year.
But seriously - what basis does the NCAA have when it comes to transfers? Mine as well just let everyone play, regardless of the situation.
Yeah. Nike U Basketball is making moves.
Good for the Pac12
So - are you saying that you root for every major recruit that isn't coming to Arizona to not sign on with a P12 team? Are you rooting for Arizona having a WCC level conference schedule?
I like the best to come to the P12 - I want to feel Arizona is beating the best, and not beating a bunch of scrubs.
Guy on twitter today told me that Oregon could "easily be the best team in the P12" (his words) if Moser plays like '11-12 Moser. I like P12 teams with HIGH expectations playing Arizona - makes the games so much more fun to watch.
I'll miss Kazemi btw - LOVED that guy's game. Losing him will hurt Oregon more than anyone is projecting.
Good for the conference is right.
And yes it is like kissing your sister..
Ok maybe just like hoping aswho can win their preconference schedule to make the conference llok better.
But it is true either way and benefits us in a big way come tourney time.
Just wanted to add belatedly that "Mighty Joe Young" should be expected to have a big positive impact for the Ducks. I watched their exhibition game, and he looked very good and very compatible with Altman's game and with his teammates. Calliste had a strong showing too. Oregon is looking relatively weak in the front line, even with the addition of Moser. But with the known quantities of Artis, Dotson, and Loyd along with Young and Calliste, Altman will be able to feature a lot of 3-guard looks and really push the pace. Lots of shooters and finishers. Good ball and player movement. With Young eligible, Oregon is much more likely to live up to high expectations.
