UW graduated two of their top bats, Aguilar and Stangel, accounting for 25 HRs and 95 RBIs. They'll be depending more on pitching, small ball, and defense.

UCLA graduated Spaulding SS, Maurice OF, and McDuffee P.

Oregon graduated Udria SS, D. Mercado OF, and Puentes OF.

Arizona graduated Mauga 3B, M. Mercado SS, O'Toole P, Bowling P, Dotson OF, Floyd P, and Watson OF.

It's a secret. You'll have to wait until my pac-12 all-up prediction post (which I was going to post last night but I took a nap instead.)

I wouldn't count Oregon out or UCLA. They both have pitching depth (if Azevedo can deliver for UCLA. Of course Oregon returns the three headed monster and i believe Elish could have a special year.

Now that the Stanford question is answered, I'll make my way-too-early prediction.

2018 PAC 12 Finish

1.  UCLA
2.  Washington
3.  Oregon
4.  Arizona
5.  Utah
6.  Stanford
7.  ASU
8.  Oregon State
9.  Cal

No way Stanford is better than 7... and I think 7 is generous.

But they will be in that bottom-third mix.... which would be HUGE progress

Stanford has Maddie Dwyer coming in, and that kid looked pretty impressive at the TCS nationals on espn3 last week.

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe ESPN should think about sharing their bed with the 2018 PAC 12. SEC might need to sleep on the couch.

"Wait for the magic."

What she does is not magic.  It is a lot of commitment, devotion, love of players, hard work, intelligence, eye for talent, wisdom, game IQ, development of culture.

Maybe not 7 next year or two, but eventually a consistent contender for the PAC title.

She is right up there near Gasso and Walton and above all others.

I hope ESPN gets more games from the PAC this year because i feel like it'll be an intense conference season.

Meanwhile, White has reached the Sweet 16 in all 8 of his years (only Gasso and Murphy have done the same in that time)

Yeah, he's a reallll slouch compared with Allister... who I like a LOT
