C'mon PAC12 teams that made it to a bowl "REPRESENT!"
we have utah,ucla,oregon and stanford left
Yeah well, we're getting PAID!!!
Well played...Well played!
Historically I've validated our conference (The Big whatever it was at the time) by out of conference play...especially Bowl Games.
But honestly, win or lose, I just like our conference, and I'm not worried about it. Also, the Pac teams tend to be unranked vs. ranked teams the way the cards fell this year.
I'm glad they're losing. That helps us out if other teams aren't winning bowl games imo
Somebody made a very good point that because of USC being ineligble this year, and having two teams in BCS bowls has really screwed up our normal bowl pecking order so that teams that would have been in a lower tier bowl have been moved up a couple of spaces against tougher competition.
Wasn't a big "pull for the conference in bowls" guy in the Big XII, and I'm realizing this hasn't changed in the Pac. This doesn't mean I'm actively pulling against the Pac, but I'm just not wildly excited to see conference rivals get a bowl win and gain momentum on the recruiting trail.
No surprises to the results of the bowl games thus far, but the Pac has a reasonable shot to pick up 3 wins in these final 4 games. Regardless, USC isn't playing, so this bowl season can always be pointed to as somewhat of an "incomplete".
You can count UCLA out, and Oregon doesn't match up physically with Wisconsin.
UCLA is going to beat Illinois. You're aware that Illinois has lost 6 straight games, right?
If the coach can get them to stop skipping practice.
Illinois is staying at the Hyatt at Drum and Market. I've seen them walking around and they certainly don't look that intimidating.
Not only have they lost 6 straight games (last win was Oct. 8), but they highest they've scored in these 6 losses is 17 points (once).
Ohio State: L 17-7
@ Purdue: L 21-14
@ Penn St: L 10-7
Michigan: L 31-14
Wisconsin: L 28-17
@ Minnesota: 27-7
These guys lost to Minnesota by 20, they aren't winning a bowl game.
Wisconsin also doesn't match up physically with Oregon. Will be an interesting game and the quacks will probably still lose. The thing will hurt the badgers is their lack of speed. Their D is strong, and big, but its a Big 10 defense. It isnt as quick as it probably should be. SEC defense > Big 10 defense in that aspect. Oregon has a shot, but they have a bad streak of losses when teams have time to prepare.
You should get together with wsp, he knows how to pickem too.
