Never Enough
I want someone to explain to me how last week's, "If they go 12 and 6 they're in," has morphed into, "They have to beat USC for a third time, on top of Saturday's win, in order to make it." Is it so terrible to lose to UCLA in overtime? To split with UCLA, Washington, Arizona, and Stanford? To beat the Bruins at home? Sure, the Wildcats got pounded in Chapel Hill, but we now realize that that fate could even have befallen the Blue Devils. It would be just our luck to be the first Pac-10 team in well over a decade to go 12 and 6 in conference play and not make the tournament. I have a bad feeling about this. I mean, I always have a bad feeling, but this time I have a really bad feeling. It's hard enough trying to beat the same team three times in one season. To do it back to back, though, is even harder. Anyway, if I seem really, really pissed on Friday, you'll know why. Don't even get me started on how the perpetually overrated SEC is going to get six teams in. Grrrrrr!

How the hell does USC have two players on the all Pac-10 Team?

I'm going to go ahead and question Ubaka too...
I'd like to say I'd be shocked if Cal wasn't in, but the Pac-10 hasn't gotten any national props this year.
They sure as hell deserve it. Powe could eat up a lot of higher ranked teams that are soft in the middle.

Yeah, I think Ubaka is more of a second team guy. But Cal is strong in the middle. If they make 40% outside the paint, they can beat a lot of "better" teams. The USC thing is suspect too. L.A. sportswriters?
