Ask anyone. The Pac-10 was historically bad last season. It managed just one semi-bubble team (the California Golden Bears) and another (the Washington Huskies) needed a semi-surprise conference tournament title to give the league a second NCAA bid. It was the worst major conference performance of the modern era.
