    ASU looks pretty average tonight and they will likely beat up on everyone outside of UCLA in the South.

    I had the same thought. Washington would win the south, IMO. They will probably finish third in the North.

    I wish we didn't have to go to Seattle, that looks like a brutal trip

    It'll be interesting to see how the Pac12 ends up in 12 years. The big money schools are USC and UO with UDub not too far behind. Stanford and Cal can recruit based on their brand. The inland empire is expanding so you'd think that would be best for the south schools.

    Hopefully there's a bit of back and forth throughout the years, but as of right now it's the 3 teams up north and everyone else.

    It will balance out in the end, but ASU should probably be a little concerned about Graham right now. That team is slightly better than the Erickson teams.

    Over time, I think the advantage lies in the South due to the better recruiting grounds. The advantage is slight, though. Kind of like how UT has a recruiting advantage in Dallas over OU. But there are things that make several of the schools in the North special, which will keep it close to balanced. We'll never have a Big 12 situation.

    We'll see if Helfrich can keep Oregon at the top. Him taking over there reminds me a lot of Neuheisel taking over CU.

    So when, exactly do you see him leave for UDub and begin the downward spiral of the UO program...

    Chip Kelly has said multiple times that Helfrich is the smartest coach he has ever met, but I am worried about that sort of situation happening. It is to soon to tell as his roster is stacked with talent, but it will only take a few years to see his real coaching ability once Mariota and DAT graduate.

    It will balance out, and maybe even shift over time. The first few years of the B12 were dominated by the north, then evened out, and then the south dominated. The same thing will happen with the P12. Stanford will return to their historical norm; Oregon will lose its shine, and USC and CU will return to top 10 rankings.

    Agreed, these types of things are cyclical.

    And they really lost to Wisconsin, though it goes down as W with an asterisk.

    Kind of like the OU John Hessler game.
