    I used to know the answer to #1 and I can't think of it right now. I'm going to Google it just because I'm curious, but I won't post it.

    I'm pretty sure it's not one of the obvious choices though.
  5. 1. Florida State?

    I had to look up No. 1, and I was actually right (no worries, I won't share). Better lucky than good, I guess.

    1. UCLA

    2. Wild guess: Graig Nettles and Gary Thomasson

    3. Since you said Pac-10, are we talking post-1978?

    4. Frank Robinson
  12. I'm guessing you need to go back a few more decades.

    Or is this a trick question? It became the Pac-10 in the 70s, I believe.

    So is the answer just for the Pac-10 or do previous versions of the conference apply?
