    How sad is the Pac-12

    It was supposed to be the greatest conference ever assembled.... Then a bottom feeder big 12 team wins the conference tourney the first year... lol

    Re: How sad is the Pac-12

    Well to be fair Colorado was not a bottom feeder when they left the Big 12. Last year they finished 5th in the Big 12. Still, I agree that the Pac 12 is an embarrassment.

    agree that the Pac-12 is a joke but I was very happy to see Colorado make it to the dance this year seeing as they got the shaft of a lifetime last season

    The Pac 12 sucks, no other way around it.
    I think I saw someplace that Pac 12 teams are 1-31 against non conference RPI top 50 teams.

    Re: How sad is the Pac-12

    Yeah the Pac12 sucks, still Colorado winning it is not surprising. They had been nothing for years and suddenly last year they finished 5th in the Big 12. I expected them to continue to improve.

    Re: How sad is the Pac-12

    The Pac 12 is so pathetic that the regular season conference champion (Washington) is on the bubble and might not get in

    Yeah I guess i do remember them being decent last year. generally they are not that good though. But I'm glad they won it. kind of makes the big 12 look better.

    It's RPI Top 30 teams. The Pac-12 is bad, but not THAT bad. Lower level teams from the Pac-12 actually beat Texas and NC State in the preseason

    Re: How sad is the Pac-12

    Its pretty funny how quickly the pac went from obscurity, to huge 'powerhouse' conference during realignment that everyone wanted to be in, to obscurity again.

    Did anyone really expect anything different? They still are on the west coast where people seem to care less about collage sports. Too much public lands out here for people to go do things in without driving a long ways.

    The Pac 12 really is that bad.
    Their only lock for the tourney is the Pac 12 tournament champion. MVC and A-10 conferences are better than them.
    Lower level MVC teams also beat us in the non-conference. What does it mean? Nothing.

    Cal is pretty close to a lock as well. It would be a big surprise if they were left out.

    If they didn't have such a **** schedule, they'd be a lock right now. I think their SOS is in the 90's.
    They'll probably get in, but they aren't a lock by any means.
