That is precisely the problem. The Pac-10 is run by morons. Their TV contract is keeping them from getting the national respect they deserve. . .which is exactly why the SEC always has more top-10 and top-25 teams than the Pac-10. They are a well-run conference, while the idiots leading the Pac-10 and their TV contract leaves them less exposed than the WAC and therefore under-ranked across the board.
FSN and Versus? What is this, hockey?
The Pac-10 is much better than their national rankings would have you believe. . .and they typically do quite well in OOC games vs. other conferences. . .
And no, I'm not saying the Pac-10 is better than the SEC because Cal beat Tennessee. . .it was just a very recent example of how close the two conferences are. . .yet one gets all the love and the other wallows amongst the under-ranked.
And the primary reason is the TV contract. If they had Notre Dame's TV contract their rankings would look very similar to those from the SEC.
They have no one to blame but themselves and the directors of the conference.
