Fair enough -- at least you outlined your argument. I still totally disagree that they are a better conference, but this is a PAC 10 thread, so I won't take it any farther. Perhaps you should x post this in the SEC thread.

I will be very impressed if USC manages to run the table this year. I'm also looking forward to catching the Cal-Oregon game, which should be awesome (hopefully it will be nationally televised).

I would not be surprised to see UW pull off some upsets this year. They might be top 25 worthy.

Yes, because last year means the SEC is barely worse than the NFL. This is dumb beyond belief. The Big 10 was crap last year, but Wisconsin and Penn State beat supposedly awesome SEC teams.

When Tennessee beats Cal, or Auburn beats USF at home, I'll give the SEC credit.

In any case, Pac-10 owns.

Back on topic... I do think that the Pac 10 is the one major conference that has exceeded expectations thus far.

I can give credit to UT for travelling to Cal. Even though they lost, that's more than the other big SEC teams travel or have travelled in quite some time.

Pac 10 (and every other conference) doesn't seem to mind travelling.

It did brighten my day a bit seeing Auburn and Georgia go down. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Florida? Nothing to brag about in beating Troy. I mean, SEC would give absolutely no credit to USC if they beat Troy, would they?

EDIT: I can also give credit to Spurrier for going to a bad school and building them.

I also thoroughly enjoyed Miami getting the crap kicked out of them along with ND. What a great day in CFB!

I was extremely impressed with Washington's young QB. It is nice to see the program coming back. During the glory years in the early 90's, Washington might have had the biggest home field advantage of any team in college football.

They look so much better than last year. Playing alot more together. There'll be some bad games this year as the talent is still a little lacking, but it's getting there.

Ty has really brought this team a long ways from the team that he had when he took over.

Thank you, ND, for canning him. We now see the direction you wanted to take ND in. [img]/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

I know college football is at least partially about delusional homerism, but this is just, wow.

doesn't seem delusional at all if one watched the games played thus far

Exactly what has the Big East done so far this year except struggle against supposedly far inferior competition? That was a nice win by USF, but Auburn isn't exactly looking all that great this year.

I'm as big a Pac-10 homer as there is, and I've come to grips with the idea that the SEC is probably the top conference overall. That said, the Pac-10 has been mighty impressive over the first 2 weeks. Let's take a look...

USC: (1-0), nothing to talk about here yet
Oregon: (2-0), lol@michigan
UCLA: (2-0), solid win over tough BYU team
Cal: (2-0), big win over top SEC team
ASU: (2-0), nice win vs Colorado
Washington: (2-0), big win over Boise St, this team is much improved... still, huck the fuskies
Arizona: (1-1), meh, lost to tough BYU team
OSU: (1-1), meh, laid an egg vs Cincinnati, nice win vs Utah though
Stanford: (0-1), :stanford:
WSU: (1-1), tough loss at Wisconsin

My team is WSU... seen both of their games live (@Wisc, vs SDSU). This team is gonna be in some shootouts this year. QB threw for 470 yds and 5 TDs yesterday. Defense is terrible.

SEC definitely has a strong conference, but I think the gap over the Pac-10 is nowhere near as wide as the "experts" would suggest...
