  1. What are the odds he ever returns to this forum? “[N]ot every injustice or transgression amounts to a criminal offense,” he wrote.
  2. Last year, 'Bama played Utah State, Louisiana-Monroe and Austin Peay, and traveled to Texas (hardly cross country.) In 2021, they played Miami, Mercer, Southern Miss and NMSU, all at home. Skip the COVID season. In 2019, they played Duke, NMSU, Southern Miss and Western Carolina, all at home. Auburn 2022, Mercer, San Jose State, Penn State and Western Kentucky, all at home. 2021: Akron, Alabama State, @ Penn State and Georgia State. I could go on, but clearly you're wrong. This is what SEC teams do. I don't know why the PAC-12 doesn't go back to eight games. Oregon proved you can get Slippery Rock to come across the country for a one and done, if you pay enough money. I say play the game the way the SEC does, which is also BS, but when in Rome. Why should the PAC-12 travel across country every year? Obviously, SEC schools rarely travel across country. I believe Florida plays at Utah this year, which except for BYU, is the furthest they've traveled in decades. Over the past couple of decades, Oregon has convinced Mississippi State and Tennessee to play a home-and-home series. They scheduled Georgia, but the Bulldogs pulled out. That's it. The SEC doesn't leave the south if they can help it. Hell they don't leave home if they can help it.
  3. This is bullshit. The Pac-10 went to nine conference games in 2006 because at the time it created a perfect round robin out of the conference schedule. It had little to nothing to do with travel. After expansion, Larry Scott argued that the nine-game schedule would give the Pac-12 a competitive advantage, which was also bullshit. Tell me, why couldn't the Pac-12 go to eight conference games, and just like most SEC schools, play three OOC stiffs at home every year? It would have no effect on travel at all, they'd just have to lay out another million or two to buy another body bag game.
  4. I quoted you. You wrote, "Speaking for the 80% ... " And yes, inventory is important, and it equates to money. So Mike Bellotti has "an impending sense of doom" and is "teetering on the brink." He also once infamously said following a CW loss: "We didn't lose, we just ran out of time." In case you weren't aware, not all college football games are "marquee match ups." Does a Mississippi State @ Vandy game have more appeal than Oregon State @ SDSU? I think most fans of college football who watch games in which they don't have an emotional investment just want to see an exciting game, I know I don't really care who the participants are.
  5. I'm not sure you can legitimately speak for 80% of the nation, but everyone knows SDSU and SMU don't have the cachet of the LA schools. It's not a secret. What they do bring is inventory, which is important to media companies. SMU is less popular in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex than UT, A&M, OU or TCU, but in the PAC they won't often have to compete directly with those schools for regional viewers, and a 9 p.m. start in Dallas is a solid timeslot. I think they can move the needle - eventually.
  6. About 50K on race day, not too bad for NASCAR in LA.
  7. Strange that you have USC going 13-0 and winning the conference title, but you have no other team in the conference playing in the title game.
  8. The Umpire was the MVP on that play. If he hadn't ducked in time, Nix's pass would have drilled him in the face. But hey, Duck, duck, DOINK worked out!
  9. I find it interesting that you copy/pasted this from Wikipedia, but deliberately left out the following sentence: "Although Musk claims he earned the degrees in 1995, UPenn maintains it awarded them in 1997." This is odd, because Musk claims he was accepted into a PhD program at Stanford in 1995, but decided to go into business instead. The timeline doesn't work. Why would Penn lie?
  10. It's because the other teams in the Pac-12 suck balls, and SEC teams tower above us.
  11. Congrats to the Beavs. Back in the Tebow days, I used to dream of playing those guys, hated them. It was nice to live vicariously through Oregon State's success.
  12. He did answer eventually, but quoted another poster so I didn't see it for awhile. Something about more talent around him and he wasn't that great anyway. In other words, he just dodged it.
  13. In the SEC? Aren't you torpedoing your own argument with that statement.
  14. I was more than a little drunk when I posted that,, but yeah, I guess I was off put by the sort of "little guy" attitude. My apologies. I'll try to avoid posting in a stupor going forward. 😬
  15. I mean no offense, but I'm sick and tired of this "little guy" Utah persona. It's bullshit. You're not WSU or OSU. You have a very strong Pacific Islander connection - mostly thanks to Mormon missionaries - which makes your OLs and DLs incredible. You're in the Pac-12 for a reason, because you're well-funded and well-positioned to compete. Utah should be competing at the highest level of this conference, and they are. Knock off the "We're doing more with less" crap. That's not who the Utes are.
  16. Good question. I haven't seen anything about the injury since the season ended, but the fact that he's playing in the bowl game is a good sign. He tweeted something about "Running into bowl week. Who's ready?" last week. Presumably he's going to be close to 100%.
  17. Just because I've had a lot of family at the house and little time to post, here are a few thoughts on the past month: 1) Kugrdon, I hope you're recovering. While I rarely have seen eye-to-eye with you, particularly with regard to politics, I've always respected your opinion. Be well, sir. 2) Congratulations to the Beavers (and Orange) for the win in the Platty. I could rant about terrible play calls and defensive collapse, You dominated on the ground, and ground Oregon to a pulp. I think you'll pummel Florida, just don't pass the ball - at all. 3) Fuck Washington. The Ducks coulda-shoulda-woulda, but to be honest, I don't know how in the hell we beat Utah between those two disastrous losses. Please lose to Texas so that if we can get past the Tarheels, we'll be ranked ahead of you. 4) College football is dead. Let's just admit it's an NFL farm league, and make the NFL pay its fair share to develop players. The free ride for the NFL should be done - forever. 5) Happy holidays to each of you, including HLB.
  18. Also wishing you the best kugrdon.
  19. Actually, if you look back, you quoted a Ute, not me, so I only stumbled upon your post. You could not be more wrong, but you're obviously too myopic to see your own bias.
  20. So TL:DR you agree? Perfect.
  21. Don't worry about it, you are demonstrably not.
  22. I'm surprised you mentioned those particular SEC teams after South Carolina and Arky "ran through" two of your all-powerful squads. "Trump in a landslide." 🤣
  23. Oh, here's your response. So Daniels is just like Bo then!
  24. And once again, I'll ask you why Jayden Daniels is excelling in the SEC when he was average at best in the Pac-12? You are skilled at false equivalency.
  25. They shouldn't. I don't know what's happened with Ty, but he seems to have zero confidence and he plays like the proverbial deer in the headlights. And I've never seen Butterfield in an actual game. On Monday, Lanning said he felt better about the "health of the team," but he didn't specifically reference Nix, other than saying something about his ankle. I've also seen some knee ligament rumors. Yesterday, Lanning said, "Bo is practicing as if he'll be ready to go," whatever that means. I have a rare bachelor weekend coming up. It's just me and the dogs watching college football all day Saturday. I am very concerned that I won't be able maintain consciousness until 7:30 p.m.
