  1. I can see why Franklin would be interested, and I think he is a top 10-15 coach. but I would be shooting higher if I was USC. Matt Campbell or Luke Fickell for instance. If USC gets one of those two, they are going to stomp. **of course i thought UCLA with Chip and Nebraska with Frost would stomp as well

    man, just when i was about to adopt Utah as my Pac12 south team ...

    It is pretty obvious that the guy has no idea what he is doing.

    Charbonnet for Heisman ... start the campaign now. Why not?
  5. Yeah. Everything is up for reevaluation now. UW could lose to anyone and everyone. Biggest surprise i have experienced as a UW fan.
  6. Decent effort by Adidas, but they put the panting dawg logo on the helmet instead of just sticking with the W. Brings the grade down to a B-, unfortunately. Very correctable though.

    Zach Charbonnet for Heisman. Wanted to be the first to say it.
  8. But, there is no downside to the Alliance. It also communicates to ESPN and the SEC that an agreement to block a lame 12 team playoff may easy to arrange. Also, any boost in out of conference scheduling is a positive IMO.
  9. Apparently BYU has graduated a bunch of starters? Would love to see the wildcats start the season with an upset win.
  10. Fair point. I think that 10-2 is the “realistic” best case. Every game on the schedule is objectively winnable, but stringing together 11 or 12 wins is rare without a dominant team, and I don’t think UW will be dominant.
  11. Well, I’m a moron. I thought we were in for another slug fest with Utah, but we dodge you this year. That actually improves their chances a little.
  12. 8-4. I feel like UW might be underdogs against Michigan, Oregon, ASU, and Utah. Beyond that, i can easily see UW tripping up against Cal, Stanford and UCLA.
  13. I haven't read up on the census data. What are you seeing that would support a decline of football?
  14. Well, maybe we have a different understanding of the term "regional." What i mean by regional is local, geographically contiguous and familiar, like the northwest schools (UW, WSU, UO, OSU). If some of this realignment goes through, we will have Texas and OK in the same conference with Florida, USC/UCLA in the same conference with Rutgers, Oklahoma State in the same conference with UW ... those are no longer conferences based on regional relationships IMO.
  15. Me, if we can preserve some form of the Pac in our own half of the new conference, or in divisions, so as to avoid a ridiculous amount of travel. Andy Staples had an article in the Athletic yesterday which proposed these ridiculous pods: Rutgers, Penn State, Maryland, USC, UCLA Ohio State, Michigan, M State, Cal, Stanford Iowa, Northwestern, Nebraska, Oregon, UW Wisconsin, Minn, Indiana, Purdue, Illinois GTFO with that
  16. Yeah, it kind of is, with the SEC hyper greed and realignment, transfer portal and unpredictable results of NIL, it is going to be unrecognizable in the near future. Personally, I have no interest in watching an SEC super league. The regionality of CFB is what made it so interesting. It feels like we are about to lose that with super conferences.
  17. By the way, George Kliavkoff has a difficult job. May the force be with you, sir.
  18. I guess if we (selected Pac schools) had a choice between becoming a West division of the Big 10, or adding a new East division for the existing conference ... I think there are pros and cons for the two strategies: Joining the BIG: better branding; better existing tv exposure; better tv revenue now and likely going forward; competes with the SEC on paper; worse travel; would break up the existing Pac12 and lose some schools; unclear how divisions could be created logically Adding a Pac12 East: keep all Pac12 schools in the fold; retain history and tradition; improve access to recruiting hotbed in TX; no immediate bump in revenue?; would not compete with the SEC on paper
  19. I think the Hail Mary for the Pac12 would be to go to 16 with 4 new teams from among Texas AM (have to try), TCU, OK State, TTech, Houston, Baylor, Kansas, KState. The key would be creating two divisions. The West would be comprised of the original Pac 8 (preserves tradition, history, CA schools together, academically similar schools). The East is geographically contiguous, opens up Texas for recruiting and viewership, and is wide open in terms of a dominant school. That would be a fun conference, IMO.

    unfortunately, the song kind of sucks, but the slomo video is excellent.
  21. You know that is what's coming. And, the CBS article says P5 champions won't even be guaranteed a spot. I will be watching for the the first opportunity to leave out the Pac12 champ. This 12 team setup seems significantly fishier than the straight-forward 8 teams would have been.
  22. that is some bullshit ...
  23. sure does not feel like it.
  24. Even the Oklahoma coach thinks UW was underseeded:
