    lets give it a go

    USC vs BYU
    Utah vs ASU
    TCU vs Oregon
    Air Force vs California
    UNLV vs Arizona
    Wyoming vs UCLA
    Colorado State vs Stanford
    Oregon State vs New Mexico
    and lets just combine the Washington teams and have them play SDSU. all 3 teams suck anyway

    Advantage: Pac 10
    oh and the "best/worst of the conference" is just my opinion
    This is a good point... but for this year, we can't rule out the mountain west being better than the Pac 10.. this year... I would pay to see these games because I bet you BYU gives SC heck of a game.. Utah can matchup well against Oregon.. Air Force CAN beat California (they had them beat until AF got their QB hurt).. UNLV = Arizona.. CSU will lose... all of those would be a great game..

    Of course, I can't post without hyping up my big 12, but look at the top matchups...

    OU v. BYU
    Texas v. Utah
    Mizzou v. TCU

    I like our odds...

    "20 years ago, kids were asked whether they would rather ride the pine on a winning team, or start for a losing team, and the majority said they'd rather ride the pine. A few years ago, kids were asked the same question, and the overwhelming majority said they'd rather start for a losing team."
    where'd you come up with that? did you just make it up?

    The 'underdog' confrences seem to be closing the talent gap a little more every year, and here's my personal opinion as to why that is:

    20 years ago, kids were asked whether they would rather ride the pine on a winning team, or start for a losing team, and the majority said they'd rather ride the pine. A few years ago, kids were asked the same question, and the overwhelming majority said they'd rather start for a losing team.

    I think what this translates to is that guys who may have had to compete for a starting spot on the traditional powerhouse teams are going to the smaller schools where they're confident that they will start. This means that while the big schools may not be losing starting talent, they're losing talent on the bench, and the small schools are seeing an upswing in the talent level of their starters, making them more competitive.

    So while small conferences like Moutnain West may not be better than the Pac-10, they're getting more competitive every year.

    Pac 10?
    Probably not.
    I dont think a team like Utah could go in and play USC, ASU, Cal, Oregon, and sometimes maybe Arizona and come out looking too good. The Pac 10 is tough.

    I could see teams like BYU, Utah, and maybe even Air Force having a good showing in the Big 10. Probably the ACC too (im a Canes fan. just so you Big 10 peeps dont get on me).

    No... not imo but the drop form conferences like the MtnWest,WAC,MAC,CUSA is not is far off as what people think...

    It's hard to disagree with the way the Mtn West played against the Pac 10 this week..I think BYU and Utah are the only two teams that could play the Pac 10 schedule and have a chance to finish with a winning conference record..However I think almost all of the Pac 10 schools could play the Mtn West schedule and finish with a winning conference record...
