The colleges of the West coast are legendary for their laid back lifestyle, gorgeous women,
beautiful beaches and sprawling campuses. With so many different options for those
looking to see what paradise looks like; look no further than the schools of the Pacific 12
In a head to head battle of epic proportions, I bring you the West’s Best Bets wherein I will pit
the schools against one another in a bracket style competition. Since there are only 12 schools in
the Pac, I have extended the field so that we can have a true Sweet 16 competition in four distinct
brackets. I will be judging the schools on the following criteria:
• Athletics – a total of 30 points possible
• Women – a total of 25 points possible
• Local Bars & Pubs – a total of 20 points possible
• Weather – a total of 15 points possible
• Academics – a total of 10 points possible
In the Southwest Region, we have the ASU Sun Devils, the Arizona Wildcats, the Colorado Buffaloes and the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels.
Hitch a ride with me as I explore the beauty of the desert, the glory the Rocky Mountains, the
emerald green of the Pacific Northwest, the high-tech sector in the Silicon Valley and the
glistening beaches of southern California – these are the West’s Best Bets!
