    Chip Patterson's rationale for picking Stanford to lead the Pac 12 in 2017 leaves you scratching your head. First he leaps over the professional oddsmaker's pick of USC #1 and Washington as #2 pick and goes to #3 Stanford as his pick.

    Then he bases his knowing more than pro gamblers on past convoluted statistical records for Stanford as his number one pick and to UCLA as a long shot.

    Hello Chip, prognostication is based on future expectations, with accurate assessment of the past. When you embellish the historical statistics and make Stanford sound like a juggernaut and UCLA like a team on a roll you are delusional. His sentence "UCLA ran off a mini run" was particularly disingenuous. Mini ruin yes, mini run no.

    north carolina guy. Academic FRAUD.

    Chip Patterson has spent his young career covering college sports from the Old North State. He's been writing and talking about football and basketball for CBS Sports since 2010. You may have heard him as host of SEC on CBS Podcast or as a guest radio host around the Raleigh-Durham area. A North Carolina graduate, Chip also helped found a local production company responsible for a number of programs, including the once-popular Bomani and Jones.

    Stanford is always a safe pick. They've won several Pac 12 titles in the last 5 years. Even when they have an off year they're still in the mix. If you think you can take them out then do it.

    He's just giving his picks for bettors. He acknowledges that USC has established itself as the team to beat and that they should be the favorites, he just thinks there's better picks for someone looking to bet the odds based on USC only being one year into the Helton era. Stanford has been tough for a while now, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if they come back from their loss to us next year and are in the thick of it late in the season. I don't think UCLA is in the hunt next year, but I could be wrong.

    I don't agree with his picks, but I understand them.

    His deal is that Stanford offers a much better return for the risk. A dollar wagered on USC returns $1.25. A dollar wagered on Stanford, should they win the P12 title, would return $6. Gambling is all about measuring the risk to reward payout.

    Actually, "u¢la ran off a mini run" kinda defines them perfectly wouldn't you say?

    because if he just picks USC or UW then no one will give him a second thought. Now that he picked Stanford you post a link on a message board and more people click on his article.
