Is it better suited for the conference as a whole to send the most teams possible to bowl games or only ones that have a legitimate chance at victory...aka teams that won't further embarrass the Pac-10?
I've thought about this question for some time and I don't feel that there is any right or wrong answer. One school of thought is that if you send five teams, and those five teams win, you still send the message that only five teams were bowl eligible. Sending 6-7 teams (maybe 8, if it's possible) presents the challenge of winning all your bowl games BUT you can say that we sent 6 teams. However, all that being said, it goes back to scheduling; I don't want the Pac10 to start scheduling weaklings so that it can fill up all 7 bowl slots. I want us to continue to improve from top to bottom (or maybe just 2nd place to bottom, USC can suck it). I want our 6th and 7th place teams to be able to compete with the 4th place teams in other conferences.
