Never, since we've only been the PAC12 for 3 years.
Worded it poorly, but you knew what I meant. Would actually really like to know.
Early to mid 90's?
And two consecutive seasons with nothing to show for it.
This in a way reflective of something that is common in both college and pro football.
Why do we have all-conference recievers? In large part because we have to throw the ball a lot. We haven't been very good on a consistent basis running the ball and we have been behind a lot so the ball is in the air a lot. We have also had one receiver who is significantly better and more experienced than our others so lots of those balls end up going to one guy. Big stats get attention for post-season honors, even without wins.
How many of the top statistical guys in the NFL or the NCAA play on top end teams. Last year somebody posted on this site a listing of the top 10 rushers in the NFL and the top ten receivers. In both cases only a couple of guys were even on playoff teams.

A few good teams on each list but also a lot of not so good teams.
I look forward to the day when we have enough talent that we don't have to rely so heavily on one player to produce offense.
