  1. I know I'm a solo voice on this subject, but if it were up to me, I'd have the Pac-12 go to an eleven game in-conference schedule, with the one out-of-conference game against either a B1G team or Notre Dame. Big time. Serious. It would give us the most exciting schedule in the country, juice up attendance, increase our contracted media dollars, and tell the world that we take the game seriously every week. As for the national playoff, it'll almost assuredly go to eight teams next year with all cash-starved P5 conferences guaranteed at least one slot, the move taken to help pay for ath
  2. Agree. Arizona would be a highly desirable landing spot for a number of high-talent coaches. Assuming the penalties are just for a one year cycle, I'd swallow, accept them quickly, and do some coach-shopping this winter, seeking to pull in a decade or more of dominance. After this messed-up season (in many ways) is over, it's time for a change.
  3. True, but maybe not in the SEC, where the vaccine protocol has health care and emergency workers second in line, with the vulnerable third ... and SEC football players and coaches (along corresponding individuals from Kentucky basketball) as being the very first in line.
  4. Out of an abundance of caution, Gator officials will limit attendance to 85,000, leaving the visiting section empty and free of any infected LSU fans.
  5. UCF falls to Tulsa. We need an unbeaten 7-0 Pac-12 team after our conference championship. The rest may take care of itself (Texas, Oklahoma, LSU, and UCF have all already said goodbye.)
  6. Pac-11 works for me....
  7. Wilner says early November, given daily testing. The air quality from the fires may say something else.
  8. To all you siblings in Oregon, California, and Utah, hopefully you are safe and have not had to evacuate from the fires. We have had a rough year in many ways, with this fire-season the latest hard hit. Be safe, and be assured that the beauty of your landscape will return.
  9. Apparently (I haven't read it) it's existence didn't result in any serious changes. In what should be a collegial forum, more is done to drive people away than bring them aboard. It's fundamentally more important to address that than to have blue borders for the text-block or snazzy yellow across the heading. There's a way to disagree with people without demeaning them, with facts rather than name-calling. Inexplicably, It seems lost on a board rightly boasting six of the top 40 universities in the world.
  10. If you could redesign it to eliminate a certain set of four-letter words, it would be a great improvement. It's the worst part of this board.
  11. Olson kept west coast basketball relevant nationally when it could have disappeared from view. Hoops fans in Lexington and Chapel Hill and Lawrence looked at him with respect. He created a totally engaged basketball fanbase (which still exists) in a league where fans are less than rabid. He made his mark and made it well.
  12. Gotta pay the bills for the conference offices and Larry's mansion. Pac-12 priorities.
  13. Thought to be as low as $10 a test, easy to administer, and results back in something like three hours. It's apples and oranges compared to nasal swabs. You may be able to test your entire team for less than $1,000 a day, do it daily, and quarantine/contact trace all within the same day. It's the type of direct response that's needed to move the California schools into accepting a controlled risk.
