    why is Pac-12 bball bad?

    I continually hear how bad the PAC-12 is in basketball this year but I don't fully understand why.

    Can anyone enlighten me?

    Re: why is Pac-12 bball bad?

    I heard a stat regarding their non-conference performance, and it was atrocious, and shed a lot of light on the problem. Unfortunately, I cannot remember the exact stat.

    With Arizona post-Olson, I think a Pac-12 without UCLA being UCLAwill probably be like this most years.

    If their marquee program was rolling, at least some of their teams might have a marquee conference win. Look at our season, if Kansas sucked for a few years instead of almost always being Kansas, that robs ISU of our signature win.

    In years where UCLA isn't elite I think the CUSA/MWC merger could stay stronger than the Pac-12 even losing SDSU and Memphis.

    I saw that Utah was down 52-14 to Oregon at the half the other day... That's completely insane. How does a team get down THAT bad in one half?

    Re: why is Pac-12 bball bad?

    The Pac 12 was 0-11 against top-25 ranked teams and was 1-31 in nonconference play against top-50 RPI teams.

    I don't know what it is exactly that's making them so bad but that's why they are perceived as being terrible. (Which they are)

    It will be really funny if that conference only gets 1 team in.

    More than a handful of non-power-6 leagues have as good or better arguement for getting multiple bids.

    Southern Miss is on the bubble with a ridiculously high RPI, it would be hard to rationalize keeping a team like that out for multiple Pac-12 at large bids.

    That was the stat I was referring to. I had wondered about this too, but that is terrible, and makes the conference deserve very little respect.
