    "Only two teams made it into this year's Big Dance, and it took newcomer Colorado to save some face for the conference."

    Kind of like Utah did in the bowl season for football.

    You're welcome Pacific 12. We do our part.

    I don't expect the Pac-12 will have this poor a showing nationally ever again. First, because the talent indeed was down this year, and is looking to be much better already next. And second, because I think the selection committee has realized that they underestimated the conference this year. The MWC, WCC and Pac-12 all advanced only one team past the round of 64, but the difference was the Pac-12 had less teams than either of the other western conferences. And now the Pac-12 is cleaning house in the NIT with the other bubble teams (Northwestern, Marshall, Miami, Ole Miss, Mississippi St, Tennessee) not putting up much of a fight.
