"the 2012 Pac-12 tournament has the potential to be at once the strangest and most exciting conference tournament of the last decade... everyone will be gunning for the guaranteed bid. The Pac-12 conference tournament will, at least for one season, morph into a mid-major competition: For four days in March, every Pac-12 team -- teams with names on the front of their jerseys that read "UCLA," "Arizona," "Washington," "California" -- will be no different than teams whose jerseys read "UC Riverside" and "Long Beach State" and "Pacific" and "Marist." They'll have their entire seasons on the line."

And then theres Utah.

"The Utes rank among the country's worst teams, period. Not in the high-major classification. Not in a "everybody but the Great West and the SWAC and Towson" sort of way. No, the Utes rank No. 327 in Pomeroy's rankings, currently one spot ahead of Arkansas Pine-Bluff and one spot below -- yes, below -- UMBC (that's University of Maryland Baltimore County)."

Hard to explain, hard to watch. BTW LBSU, Pacific, UCR and Marist are all ranked higher than many of the PAC 10-2 teams.
