I know it is easy to bash the Pac 12. But as the host of College Sports Today I always try to be objective and drive an intelligent conversation. After last nights Pac 12 conference championship game I think the Pac 12 should be very encouraged. I though both Oregon and Utah looked very: athletic, fast, big/strong and had the right "confident/cocky athlete" attitube. In short I thought they both looked like southern college football programs. Now, if the Pac 12 can get USC and Washington back up to standards, the confefence might have something cooking which will only be better for all of college football in the long run. Particularly once the playoff expands to 8 teams in the near future. Looking for more adult/thoughtful comments than the typical internet "yeah, but they still suck and would finish 8th in the SEC/Big 10."
