    We’re two days away from Big Saturday for the Pac-12. With four non-conference games against ranked opponents, the conference has a chance — its best chance — to shape its image nationally: Contender, pretender or basketball league (OK, maybe not that last option). That image, whatever it is, could play a vital role if USC [...]

    The conference needs a boost for their national image after only going 3-3 against the WAC/MWC/BYU in week 1.

    Outside of USC and Oregon, it was going to be a down year for the conference anyway. Preseason 'expert' chatter was that the PAC12 returned less talent and starting QBs than any other conference.

    If the UW loses late in the 4th to LSU, will that help conference perception at all?

    Just curious what others think.

    I want UW to avoid a blowout but I see them losing by 20+.

    My wet dreams have UW winning but I don't know if the guys can step it up that much...

    I would *almost* be happy with a close loss. It seems that is the best I can realistically hope for...

    Sheena is but half of Mike's size...

    Both offenses without last week's starting tackle position as well, but UW doesn't have the 6'4 330# junior backups...

    And they don't mention CU's chance to strike a big blow to the Big Sky?? Wtf.

    But yeah, of the Pac's games against top competition this weekend, I see an 0-4 record that makes the conference look worse than it is. You've got a mid-tier Pac team taking on a top SEC team, a top B1G team taking on a low tier Pac team, a mid tier B1G team taking on a mid tier Pac team, and an upper tier Big XII team taking on a low tier Pac team. Basically, Arizona and Oregon State aren't really two of the teams you want representing the Pac against top competition. Washington essentially stands no chance in hell at LSU. UCLA has a chance against Nebraska, for sure, but I think Nebraska is the better team (even without Burkhead) and the fact the Rose Bowl might have more Husker fans than Bruins doesn't help.
