Pac-12: Which Division Is Stronger in 2012?

In last year's comparison of the Pac-12 North and South divisions, I came to the conclusion that the North division was the stronger of the two.

I believe the season confirmed that. Oregon and Stanford both made BCS bowls while Washington and Cal took the next two highest bowl spots for the conference, all out of the North.

USC should have represented the South and had the best record along with a high AP ranking to finish the season, but the rest of the division was lackluster. When the division representative to the conference championship game has to file for a waiver to be able to play in a bowl game with a losing record, it doesn’t look good.

Even if USC had been eligible, the rest of the division just looked poor.

Last year I had to guess where Utah and Colorado would fall in terms of their position in the conference. This season I am going based off of where they finished last season. I know things have changed for a number of teams, but I still feel this is the best way to go.
