Can't blame the pollsters on ASU. Vandy loss was one of those fluky losses where things just don't go right on that night.
As for the national perception of the Pac-12, I think it ultimately comes down to UCLA. If they're below their own, ridiculously high, "championship or bust" standard, it brings the perception of the league down. (Similar to USC and football...)
Until ASU wins the tournament outright, it's NEVER going to look good nationally when ASU is leading the conference in quality. It's not going to be, "ASU is GOOD." It'll instead be, "UCLA is down. Arizona's down.", etc.
