The Pac-10 bashing keeps building on itself. I'm surprised no one at ESPN has suggested stripping the conference of its one automatic bid. I mean, sure, the overall level of play is lower than it has been in quite a while -- I'm thinking it's kind of mid-to-late 80s-ish -- but I have a hard time believing that it's as bad as these "neutral" observers keep saying it is. And that's why I'm fantasizing about a Pac-10-Atlantic-10 Challenge. Let's see if the conference that many commentators are saying will only get a single bid can measure up against one that quite a few people have argued is worthy of five or perhaps even six. Bring it on!
