  1. I love talking Pac-12 football and basketball. The good and the bad. The state of the league. The coaching changes, the player triumphs and failures. The media contracts, the conference leadership, the financial stability. The fanbases, the traditions, the concerns about competitiveness, and the hopes for the future. But this board, unfortunately, has become toxic. If a post is put in about comparative fanbases or salary structures, or all-conference player possibilities, or attractivenes of Pac-12 cities/towns, it's crickets. Totally cricikets. But if some ahole like HLB (or sometimes dtd) posts some garbage, it generates a long string of noxious discussion, a circular toilet flush. It makes you want to take a shower. I'm going to take a break from this board. Maybe it'll return to a serious and spirited discussion of our Pac-12, with rival fans loving the competition and loving the league, their hearts glued to their dreams, their minds trying to figure how to get there. Or maybe it won't. I hope it will, but as it is, it's driving fans like me away.
  2. Are you masturbating by yourself again while you post? Don't you get the keypad sticky? Why don't you calm down, and maybe find a human somewhere (there's gotta be someone...) who might find you attractive? Anger isn't the best way to start a New Year.
  3. Utes made the conference proud.
  4. USC vs UCLA since 2012 have been 5-5. USC vs UCLA since 1980 have been 17-14-1 for USC. Not the dominance though one might think.
  5. This is from the composite overall 247 point rating. In other words, Utah has slowly been inching up, with most years mid-pack. The 2022 ratings will likely change, with Utah already with 18 recruits, but USC (7), Oregon (10), and Washinton (6) at this point have far fewer, and are likely to jump up. In terms of average recruit rating for 2022, Utah at 87.02 currently is in 6th place.
  6. Utah's recruiting has improved nicely, but it might be a stretch to say that it's typically top half of the conference. From the 247 Composite rankings: 2015: 10th 2016: 8th 2017: 7th 2018: 5th 2019: 7th 2020: 5th 2021: 6th 2022; 3rd (incomplete as of this date)
  7. Up here, we don't equate football with religion. Always seemed creepy. Glad to see you've decided to get on board. (sarcasm font)
  8. So far in bowl games the Power Five has gone 0-5 against G-5. SEC is 0-3 (losses by Auburn, Florida, and Missouri) ACC is 0-1 (loss by Louisville) Pac-12 is 0-1 (loss by Oregon State)
  9. Utah's trajectory is up. This is not going to be a once in a lifetime event. The money-schools (USC and Oregon) are going to be unhappy, because the Utes have their act ongoing together more than they do.
  10. Imagine if we had had a 12-team playoff this year -- #6 Ohio State would have been paired against #11 Utah, with the winner to play #3 Georgia.
  11. Reaction of some Pac-12 fan-bases when (or in some cases, if,) good football things (like a bowl, or a division or conference championship) happen: UCLA -- We're building something, but we never should have lost a couple of those games. The damn Pac-12 refs. Cal -- This is unusual ... does anyone here know how to get bowl tickets? None of us have ever gone... Arizona -- We can't make it to the bowl, the schedule won't allow it. The basketball team plays at Tennessee that week. WSU -- Yes! We showed them! We don't let anybody push us around. USC -- Winning the conference isn't all that important. We're after bigger things. We deserve them. Colorado -- What just happened? This can't be real. It's an illusion -- we're the 21st century University of Chicago. Oregon -- You should see our recruiting class. If the coach doesn't screw it up next year, we'll be in the playoff. Utah -- We told you so (in a voice with surprising smugness.) We've always been good. Oregon State -- I don't care what bowl we're going to. We're all going to head there and party in the sunshine. Washington -- We have the resources. The money. The facilities. We should have done better. Much better. Stanford -- This team is good. They're a nice diversion. A bunch of us might skip watching water polo this week. ASU -- We had a good season. But just imagine what Frank Kush could have done with that talent.
  12. The viewing results: SEC 15.2 million Big Ten: 11.7 million Big-12: 8.0 million Pac-12: 4.2 million AAC: 3.4 million ACC: 2.6 million
