It's already that time of year. I'm pleased to see that the Bears -- yes, I call them my Bears -- are at least in the discussion where the Pac-10 is concerned and more pleased to see that their estimated RPI compares favorably to that of their most likely competitors for the conference's final at-large bids, Stanford, Washington and USC. Of course, beating Oregon at Mac Court on Saturday would do them a world of good, but that's not going to happen. In related news, I think it's time for Lute Olson to higher a defensive coordinator. The Wildcats play defense like an ABA team.
