    Condolences to Kristy on an absolute shitty weekend for CO football. Wasn't bad enough that the Muffaloes got quacked up by Oregon, but holy shit.... Traitor Russell & the Broncos had 70 fucking points scored against them??

    Meanwhile up here in Cascadia, the Dawgs continue to dominate the very competitive PAC 12. The conference maybe dead after this season, but it's going out in high gear. Not at all bad when you can take all your starters out of the game for the 4th quarter, let other team pretty much have the field, and still win by 27 points.

    Seahawks ain't doing bad either. Half the fucking team is injured, but they're still winning.

    Oh, calm the fuck down. The Mutts plays Michigan State a football team so shitty they've been known to lose to Pop Warner Leagues.

    If this is what Big 10 conference play is like, fucking bring it on!

    Probably a realignment, I think there are already Big 10 east and west divisions. Division winners meet for championship in Indianapolis. I did read an article in the local rag about the logistics of the farthest eastern teams playing at USC or UCLA, and vice versa.

    Yeah.. that's probably it... since media deals seem to be what's at the core of all this conference hopping anyway. If one school got a decent deal on their own, can't blame them for giving it up. Apparently the Big Ten (or whatever number they go with) is now going to be on NBC & Peacock, so hopefully the Dawgs games will be a little easier to stream as of next year. So... one more season of hunting down the bootleg streams unless it's on Fox or CBS (the only two channels I get on antenna. Fortunately they carry most of the Seahawks games, at least)

    Media is the one thing the Pac 12 has handled really badly. A few years ago they used to stream their channel for free, or at least overseas they did. I was getting the games on Kodi from some app made in Thailand, of all places. They shut that down about the time that Scumcast picked up the cable channel... and put it in their overpriced digital packages. The Pac 12 teams that actually win (Dawgs, Oregon, and USC) managed to get other channels to pick up the bulk of their games, so it's been slightly less chaotic in recent years... though the Dawgs usually find themselves in the late night slot.

    Wonder how that's going to play out, if they're playing "conference games" against teams that are two or three time zones away??

    I think they should have joined the SEC, so they could start the season with Washington, Oregon, USC, and UCLA automatically ranked as the top 4 teams before they play a single game. Because those goddamned polls always favor the SEC.

    Already seeing reports that the "new and improved" Big 10/Big 18/whatever is going to want 10 conference games in a 12 game season, which means one of those non-conference warmup games are going to be lost. Or possibly more than that, if you want to keep that traditional last game of the season against your state rivals. I.e. The Apple Cup in Washington, or the Civil War in Oregon... since the Cougs and the Beavers are now non-conference-opponents. I've seen USC fans making similar comments about their regularly scheduled game against Notre Dame - who have been invited to join the Big 10 on several occasions, but have so far remained "independent" of a conference.

    Pac-12 Conference has always been boring and fucked up thanks to shithead teams like Washington and The Foul Ducks. Good riddance. You can put the Utes in there as well but no one watches the Utes next to say, Colorado and Colorado is fucking doomed thanks that Cowboy hat-sporting Nazi Prime Peon Sanders.



    This asshole will find new ways of drilling CU into the ground better than Lauren Boebert can do by placing her festering gob on a fracking rig. I for one have no hope and excitement for the 2023 season of CU Football. They look like fools and looooooove the media attention. After CU gets their faces smashed on their opener with TCU will Peon Prime either resign or be fired.

    The Dawgs have always started the season with three non-conference games... usually smaller schools like Montana or whatever. So that seems to be a "universal" practice that happens in both the Pac 12 & the Big 10. No reason not to keep doing it... unless the "new & improved" Big 10/Big 18 powers that be decide that with 18 teams in the conference and only 12 weeks in the regular season, you can't throw away the first 1/4 of the season on non-conference games.

    On the other hand, for the Dawgs, "non-conference games" would now include the Apple Cup. And old Pac 12 rivalries which used to be part of the regular season... Stanford, Cal, etc.
