"Seems like mark. Emery is always in the news. We talked to pete thamel about him. A couple of days ago and since then pitas written Even more talking about whether the winds of change are not already in the thanks for the time. Let's let's talk about your latest on. When i was i was dumbfounded when i read your column because i swear. I rent a comment the other day. Some poo bear in the ncwa hierarchy. That said he was doing a good job and they were happy with him. Well hey it was interesting. Paul like he. There's a little bit like i know. I caught in the stock market. When when when the stocks keep going up they call it the goldilocks effect in in college. Athletics when someone who is perhaps not performing their job at a high level but still gets to keep their job is a similar thing. We're just all the all the factors surrounding them are in place so they can keep on going even if the results aren't there and we we saw you know most recently with larry scott out in the pac twelve where it was fairly unanimous Feeling amongst athletic director certainly in a lot of people out there that maybe it was time for larry to move on and he had a couple of key presidents especially the gentleman at arizona state and they make a crow who were were on his. We're on his side and he kept the job probably three or four years longer than maybe even more than that than than most people in that area would Would have thought he was going to in so the Mark emirate is that he is pretty much lost his constituency on the ground meaning he has lost the commissioners for shore at multiple commissioners going to estimate that least eighty five percent of them would like to see a change in the president's spot athletic directors. A little harder to judge. 'cause you're you're going from university of maine to miami and alabama you know eastern washington. There's three hundred and something in division one and there's d tuned. three as well But it's probably a fair estimate to say eighty five percent there want change as well. I mean let's put it this way for all the stuff that's come out about mark emmer. His anybody stepped up to defend him. I don. I don't think there's i have not heard or seen a you know a single person other than his bosses.

They're good and they're well-coached great get in the business. Everybody knows them but people shouldn't want more about you know, just the respect he has in a business out of it. Now the team they're playing I I just haven't seen wage games and I know they have to be playing while USA, you know, and I know I know God Moberly and but I haven't seen them and and but how about let's just say Larry Scott, you know is he's stuck around town. I mean what Larry Scott right now with all his money all the money that he he basically stole from the Pac-12 of the last however many years and he takes a lot of media setting. He probably deserves a lot of it. Is it football and everything else but right now I'm sure he's starting around town and and it got four teams. It's amazing. What what's more what's more surprising to you that the Pac-12 is 40 G? So that the Big Ten only is one that's got to be done. The latter. I if you go back if people want to go find out things I've written and said the last 3 months as I was jumping off on Big Time too big ten bandwagon and and and you know, how what a deep amazingly wonderful conference. How many teams are I love to watch and it's all true. I did I'm stunned that they are they're all out. And and and at the one who survives is the one I thought was going out first because they lost him one of the tires. Larry. Larry Rivers was Hillary livers who was not rely rest of it back in the sixties, but that's another story for another day Isaiah livers. I worked out just like I got out of college Gillespie never thought filling up would get this farted. I said no better but I'm surprised that degree and and but you know for Pac-12 was given, you know, I mean, I know we're also starting around town my good friend Bill one o the conference's head off. Yes, and I didn't see this coming and I'm a Pac-12 Guy having him. I've nobody saw this, No, but listen, nobody thought Wayne tinkle and Oregon Thursday. We're going to get this far. Nobody thought UCLA was going to be in the sweet sixteen and what makes it more impressive Bob was that the restrictions put in place in California where such that God those those California schools weren't able to like Mick Cronin didn't see his guys in person for like six months after the pandemic kids..
Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott stepping down at end of June
"Last night. Perhaps the least surprising news of twenty twenty one came out that larry scott was stepping down stepping down being a charitable word as the pac twelve commissioner. Nobody better to talk to than jon wilner. Who covers that league. Expertly out there on the west coast john. Great to have you with us and here we go beginning the new year and things are upside down in the pac twelve. What else is new. Good afternoon thanks while yeah There's never a shortage of Of off the field developments. That's for sure on the field. That's kind of the same same story for many years now but but It's it's pretty interesting conference off field. I remember distinctly. It seemed like yesterday although it was many years ago. When when larry was brought in he was brought in from professional tennis everybody raved about him. He did things different. He had media days in new york. He smooths southern at national championship games. And all that out you know. I would contend that he was the right hire for the pac twelve back then two thousand nine to ten and was able to execute on a lot of the high priorities but also argue that he is not the right commissioner for the pack twelve right now and the last couple of years have seen a series of of missteps that have Hurt the conference You know hurt. The brand hurt the football product specifically And just kind of got pulled everything into this. You know Sinkhole how and exactly who will help the pac twelve. Talk some of the candidates that i mean. I've seen at least twenty five names mentioned who is realistic to get this job too. Great question I think the the the the problem is it's hard to know exactly what the patch will presents are going to do because they've got these gigantic media rights negotiations coming up here in a couple of years and so there is some thought that they hire someone from the sports media. industry You know a tv executive basically to kinda head the head the process at the negotiating table But then there's a school of thought that you know they had brought larry scott in from from You know the pro sports world. He didn't have any experience in college. Athletics and and there were problems because of that so they should take a more traditional approach and higher you know a sitting athletic director particularly maybe one that's got You know the football powerhouse so until you know kind of which direction the president's wanna go. It's hard to really pinpoint candidates. But certainly if they'd go a traditional route you can you can figure on some of the top name being being contacted. I would think. I wanna go through every name because i think sometimes i. Maybe i'm dubious of reporters pushing people. But i i've been in that shoe. We've been in those shoes before as you have. But let's talk about a realistic group of people that could figure into this job. Well realistic group You know I was just from from your territory. You know i would think greg byrne If they decided that they wanted to go more traditional route. I would think that there would be some conversations. And they're gonna hire search for him to to do the legwork. I would certainly think that there'd be some outreach. To greg burned you know he He has ties to four different pac twelve schools. He worked at oregon and oregon state We was young He went to arizona state. He was the ada at arizona. Obviously the guy knows college football Which is a big issue for the pac. Twelve right football products gotta get improved. So you know i could see a scenario in which they they at least had a conversation with burnt Maybe even the same thing with g smith you know he. He was the athletic director at arizona state before he moved to columbus I wonder if bob dole's be you know was at stanford before he became the big twelve. Commissioner you know. I i think the actual probably would be smart at least make a phone call and see both i was tired of dealing with texas And ready to maybe move back to the west coast So that those are few names. But i do think that if they go the traditional route. They're gonna wanna have somebody who has been on a pack twelve campus. They don't want to bring in somebody who doesn't understand you know the the culture out here I think that that's going to be important for them. Is is somebody who at least has some ties to the west.

Scott Wonky voices of us Mark Johnson Boy will talk the fastball here in a moment it is breaking just moments ago. He was like my phone was blowing up. I wasn't sure what was going on. What the it's being reported that the Pac 12 has agreed to part ways with Commissioner Larry Scott Conference CEO has just finished meeting tonight. National Search for New Commissioner will begin immediately and there are many across the Pac 12 landscape that are cheering right now, with that news big grin on there with a big grin on their face Because the guy who is not so affectionate become known his limo Larry apparently is no longer the commissioner. The fact well Yeah, very tumultuous time. Really of the host of this whole career. Well, yeah, well, finances haven't been good. The TV deals haven't been good. Obviously, there's been a lot of issues internally. The Pac 12 Network has been just bleeding money. And, of course, hasn't been on of direct TV all these years, which is obviously a huge issue. Why six years ago? Exactly Right. So anyway, that's the breaking news right now. The conference CEO has just finished meeting a few minutes ago. This came down at 7 39 Mountains, times their lives. What 15 minutes or so on The Pac 12 agrees to part ways with Commissioner Larry Scott. All right, obviously, it'll develop over the course of the night into tomorrow. But let's go and talk about this ballgame, your thoughts that have to well, you know, some of the numbers look really good when you look at statistics mark, but I feel like we should be up by Maura Guests seem like Washington. In a way, we're not controlling the backboard. First of all, like we should against the team. Mike does that averaging a 10 negative on the boards for the season Buffaloes old eight from downtown there, minus two rebounding are shooting 49% for the field. But Scott and I don't have a turnover at this point time. You're right. I mean, It's just the average number of three pointers. That's another probably nine points for this team, and you're up by 13 or 14 here at the half but also have been getting the ball inside in this ballgame right now, they'd get a sight. Decisive point to the paint advantage on are these scores are big men, but I just don't feel like the bus have kind of held things well when they got.

"To learn a little bit more about the baseball up in the office, the White Sox putting up a few crooked numbers. They're of three zip on the ace with Couple of guys on base till it's in the third. Obviously, the A's the whoever wins moved on, you know, I love I love this game after game after it's so much fun, t. But I don't tell you what I actually really like. The three Game wild card, So I I know it's not typical, but this is is this makes it interesting is supposed to Maybe he just had a bad day. CIA Good luck next year, Right? Yeah. Thie expanded, playoff, said. I mean, I know how How real it is for, you know, continued going forward, but this is kind of cool. I think it's great, you know, because if you just have an off night and with baseball is easy to do that, you know you get a chance to, you know, a little bit more of a chance for the better team to emerge. Not that that always happens. But you know, the White Sox right now look pretty good. The Braves move on. They beat the riot at the Reds could have the poor reds. No, I mean they had a better break yesterday. Barrow was phenomenal. They just couldn't hit. They were one for 12 with guys in scoring position. Terrible. That's horrendous. So they lost. Today's the Braves. Move on. I got the cards in the Padres ST. Louis up one zip there got the Dodgers Brewers Dodgers won last night tried to send the brew crew home and Marlon's Cubs postpone Miami won that first game. So you imagine if Derek Jeter and Don Mattingly bounced the Cubs that mean the Marlins. It's already a big story that they made the playoffs. But could you imagine they went around? BT I remember talking about this. At the beginning of the season member. A tent like 10 games in the Marlins were atop the The least and it was a little comeback. The fall back to where they are. I don't think this is your You know your dad's Mark Lynn's anymore. They've got some athletes, and I remember saying that at the start of the season like this team's not as bad as you think, I don't think they'd be this good. No, but baseball's obviously hum and let's get to college football with pieces before. All right. So Larry Scott we found on the show the Pac 12 commissioner, I guess reached out there on a conference call, and he asked whether or not they should consider expansion and going from four teams to 18 for the playoff here. No based on a way to recoups of lost revenue and to make it more equitable Since the schedules and distorted we might not really know, Four teams might not really be a fair representation, blah, blah, blah. It was immediately shot down and okay, so I'm not really surprised it was shot down on disappointed. It was shot now because you and I raised this issue. Let this issue last week where we thought that this might be a viable way to make it. Ah, little bit more even or a bit more fair. They're not going to do it. But my question for you is Larry Scott and I say This with respect is not held in high esteem is the commissioner of the Pac 12. Well, he's not well, He's not. It's well. He doesn't have the voice that it's necessary to make this be impactful. Now, let's let's be clear the way In all of its member organizations have zero influence over the college football playoff. It's a completely separate business entity. I know that it feels tied, but it's not at all and so they're basically taking a suggestion. What war? They were at least listening and then shot down his feet Deep, probably said Ah, suggestion from a commissioner who canceled his season or postponed his season canceled. Pushed it to the fall. Maybe are the spring maybe Um which, in some ways Hamstrung or took away a a pool of potential teams for the college football playoff to do business with, so it's like We're not gonna play so good luck filling out the council ball playoff away. We're going to play. Can you Can you add us? Can you give us more? You know, slot just in case even just for a year just so we could work groups and revenue. This is this is the college football playoff, basically telling the Pac 12 yet go scratch. You weren't willing to be around to help us than then. Sorry you figured out get your seven game season and hopefully in seven weeks without any disruptions, Which is why I don't think they're gonna make it. Any team's going to be in there anyways. Just goingto have disruptions is that we've seen it already. In college football. A XYZ What teams that have to do is start. So I mean, I I get both sides of this. I get why the Pac 12 wants to have an expansion. Think of all the money that they're losing their programs have law. Stanford Clit 11. No scholarship programs, even though they did have a ton, already, almost double as many as most schools. But still, they cut 11 sports When they do have sports bag, there's not gonna be fans and I'd get ticket revenue. The these schools are in dire straits and the college football playoff could help them because football playoff is not incentivized to help them. Agreed. But you see, I'm stripping away the SEC motivation..

"News is that a new study suggests that Cove it is actually mutating and and that's the good thing. It is probably becoming more contagious, but it is less deadly, so it may be able to find a way around that mask that you've been wearing. But the good news is that it appears to be less less fatal than it was early on in the months that we first found out about it Well, PAC 12 will play football after all. In a statement, the conference said that football team's approved to play by local and state health officials can kick off November 6th. Basketball will begin November 25th. They will get weekly cove in tests for the for the players. The The commissioner Larry Scott, said. This is the result of what we said back in August. We follow the science follow the daily data. It follow the advice from our medical experts. Here's the other thing that Larry Scott was could've said but didn't We watched other conferences play for the last four weeks, and there have been no massive outbreaks or problems associated with Cove in taking down entire football programs. So therefore, maybe there is some money to be made in all of this. Money is clearly the driver in this because they don't want to do without it. It's not just because they feel good and want to give these guys something to do with their time. But they say every Pac 12 team will play the five opponents in their division plus a divisional crossover game. Before a conference championship coming up on December. 18th. Those teams that do not qualify for the title game will play an additional conference game against a squad from the opposite division. That same weekend. They say they're going to release their full schedule of games in just the next few days. The interesting thing to me is that you've still got The counties that house the Pac 12 teams. In trouble. At least L. A county is still in that purple tear when it comes to the face stage echelon levels that the governor put out there in the Bay Area. It would be Palo Alto, I think is in San Mateo County, but either way San Matteo Santa Clara basically the Bay Area is considered in the red tear, which is still substantial. Substantial infection rate for covert, but it does allow some some Openings and re openings when it comes to businesses. We talked about this, though, before Why is it that you see Lion US USC ghetto at the very least, gather I get to gather in the numbers that would be required for people to be a football practice, right? And we've said before that some of the requirements before were that you can't have more than 12 people on the field at the same time or practicing in a group at the same time, and now the assumption is that they're going to be able to be do they're going to be able to do this the way that they I should just do a normal practice along with daily auntie Gin testing athletes will take at least one palling Mary's chain reaction test per week. So that they could determine how and if this thing spreads and even if it does What? What We're going to see. Here you go. We're now into week three of the NFL. This was about the over under that A lot of people were giving the NFL assuming that they were going to be problems with covert 19 problems with infections. And that it was going to be going to have to pull the plug on that season. Zero positive tests. That's that's fan. I think it's because we all had it. We all had it last year. You think we're reaching the point where we're getting that? I feel like sort of herd immunity to it. I don't know. I just I feel like everybody that was travelling in the fall. I eave. The NFL probably had it. It's funny to me that every two or three weeks we seem to be getting a story about O. And it actually wasn't the beginning of February is probably the middle of January that it came here and then, actually, December was probably Christmas time that everybody was starting to get it. All right, coming up next. Jason Nathan joins us from the hot tub with the entertainment report. There's some high quality stuff, he says, streaming this weekend.

"Holdout in the Power five. You just heard the voice of Larry Scott, Pac 12 commissioner who will hear from in just a second, essentially saying they can get seven games in her Joey Galloway there on college GameDay live last night on ESPN and our college football playoff reporter. Had their dinner. So if you didn't hear they hope to get seven games in hope, they hope hope the Pac 12 will hope to play seven games beginning November, 6th and tongue planted firmly in cheek. Usually they follow the big 10. About an hour after the big 10 makes news, the Pac 12 does this time they waited about 10 days. Tio imitate the smart, We're going to make sure everything's okay, really quick out West. Also, we should mention that the Mountain West, which is a group of five league outside of the Power five, is going to play an eight game schedule starting in October. The only reason I mentioned that is people You believe that this season is his topsy turvy, as many think it might be. Because of the Corona virus. This could be could be the first opportunity in the history of the playoff that a group of five team that would be a quote unquote non major five team gets into the play off. Let's hear from Larry's got the commissioner last night on Freddy and Fitz Simmons on ESPN radio, saying better late than never, and only seven games when some teams might play 11 like in the A. C. C. They still have a shot at the playoffs. There's no doubt will be part of the conversation have a chance. At the end of the day. This committee's been selected for best teams, and they look at data and give you the eye test. And all that. Obviously, we're starting later than others. And potentially, we have less games than others. But I'll tell you talking to my colleagues in the other conferences and looking at how the first year weeks ago. None of my qualities could look in the eye and tell you how many games each team's gonna play in the big 12. They see the S e. C. Otherwise noted, name is having to sit out this week, so no one no one knows him again. You're gonna play and there's gonna be a wide variety. Of resumes. That the selection committee's gonna have to look at and decide it was not all play. The same number of games will be superior of eligibility issues and other things and we'll be in the mix. It's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless. Let's go straight to key. Obviously, this is a seven game conference on Ly schedule, which obviously would preclude any nonconference games, which sometimes if you play big boys, a great litmus test to see exactly how you fare outside your league. That's not a possibility this year. But you think for the two heavies in this league including your alma mater, it won't be necessary. Yeah, I don't think so, because college football when when USC is good That's good for college football. It's like Ohio State is the Alabama's The Michigan's They You know, the college football landscape would love to see a USC in the final four in the playoffs or in Oregon. For that matter. I don't think that that really matters. If you look at Oregon last year, they lost early toe, Armand, but they were still right, Vera If they don't drop that, when the Arizona State they're still right there in the end, So you know, seven games, you know, I know I went back and forward on this or I could be a little bit of a hypocrite. As far as this goes. If SC play seven and they get through it, and they're undefeated. Then. You've got to take a look at them being in the college football playoff along with whoever else is undefeated. You different. You see, I don't see a team from the Pac 12, making it into the college football playoffs. And here's why I think it could be interesting at first off. Think this is going to be the most controversial college football playoffs will have probably since the BCS. It is going to be insane. It's going to be so subjective with a lot of these postponements. So let's say hypothetically, a team in the Pac 12 You only play five games, say two games get postponed. Right? You don't Bray volumes. Now, what's gonna happen is in the Pac 12 north organs in a Pac 12 north alone. Right. So if you're playing your division conference games on, Lee, right, Where's the Pac? 12 South? You're gonna have USC Arizona State. They're going to get chance. Let me stop you before you even going to further five games is not enough in general. No matter who you are five games, just not enough number seven games, two more games and five is enough to more games. I would That's two more games is closer to that 8 19 having that some other teams could potentially play. So if Oregon isn't really playing anybody because they're only playing in their division until they get to the Pac 12 championship game and then say they do beat I don't know. Throw it out there. USC who's undefeated, too, Okay, is that resume That's not going to be is that resume could be in the college football playoffs. That's why I'm saying it's gonna be subjective with the eye test, but I really think they're not having part of conference game is going to hinder them where you have look. Eight teams are ranked in the top 25 sec, But teams are in the top 25 A. C. C J will Yes. Every year in the S E C. They hide behind Alabama and l s u tennis seeing no damn good, Hey saying good, but it's to be stating like also, what's on your resume like that? It's also what's in your resume, so it goes very subjective. Just doing items when we haven't seen a Pac 12 team stack up competition Wise three gets out of conference team There's three teams in SEC. That I feel before foreign sec. I feel the dogs. Okay, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and L s u they kind of Florida just got back. Where they belong. Ellis. You obviously zealous you coach. Oh, Alabama, Alabama. George has been doing pretty good of late. Those four teams are always gonna be in that conversation. Big. They're going for the most part high behind Alabama success in the past again when USC is good People want to see that it's a national brand. It's like Ohio State. People want to see it now. Whether or not they're good enough to run the table and do it. That's an eyeball test. You could steal. Take out those Four so games Impaired down. The seven is still see what they are totally. You can. I think you could see a team play nine games in what they are.
Pac-12 football will resume November 6

"That'll go well. But at the same time I start to ramble at the same time. Pac 12 teams, which are gonna have a a more effective testing process than the NFL teams. They can't play the NFL teams air just chugging right along. Real quick. I know what you're spending too much time in this now and let Rod go, But I've got to get back to the September 3rd thing because that jumped out at me and your article saying, And I think that quote was Larry Scott wanted to be the one to announce the fast acting test. What was the deal with not letting teams know that? Hey, we may be getting close because the coaches were mad because they had sent players home. Families are on vacation. All of a sudden, it's like they were going to play. It's like, Well, why don't you let us know when you know so we could kind of start calling people back and getting everybody ready and getting ramped up. So we get ready to play. I mean, that whole thing to me seemed to be 23 weeks. Just poof gone. When Larry's got knew, there's a good possibility this could happen and just kind of kept it to himself. Didn't let anybody know Yeah, There's a lot of conflicting information about how the whole thing came about. I know that the schools a lot of the school's didn't even know till the day they announced it. I'm still a little bit unclear as to exactly when Larry Scott knew the deal was gonna happen, But I don't want to things I know for sure are That because I talked to them. CEO of of Could L. There, the company that's making these tests. I talked their CEO yesterday, and he said that in the summer there was a major problem with their with their supply chain, and they were not in position. A pet for capacity to be able to serve the Pac twelve's needs. Their supply chain issues got straightened out, and things were able to ramp up. The other thing that we know for sure is that after they made that announcement on September 3rd there was probably 10 days. That we're kind of lost, and I don't know it was lost because the conference loss because of the schools, whatever, but but they did not put it in 50 year until at least 10 days after that test, and that was crucial time lost. And what day did the big Pan announced they're coming back? The Big 10 announced on a Wednesday. So whatever that, whatever that wass what, last Wednesday Last Wednesday. Yes, that was the same day Big 10 announced in the morning. And then Newsome announced at his noon press conference that the teams could play games but not practice. So what are you talking about? I'm a great guy. And then, um And then later that night later that night, the school's got their approval from L. A county. Ah, and then the Pac 12 presidents on Friday decided they didn't They weren't ready to take a vote, so they're voting on Thursday, supposedly, if there is no sign off for approval of a play on Thursday. I think they're in big trouble. So we're talking Jon Wilner of the Bay Area newsgroup his back 12 Hotline newsletter and and his Twitter account must treat must follow, respectively. Follow him on Twitter. I wilder hotline. So Conference leadership. Larry Scott, head of the Pac 12, This is a time where decisive and unflappable leadership needs to come to the forefront. Where is it? Considering also, you're paying him almost $5 million a year. Where is he? And all of this? And why is he seemingly been unable to navigate these? These ridiculous political waters and also be relatable to the coaches, the fans, the people who are actively putting football out there, and the people who care about Pac 12 football. You know, I think he did a pretty good job for the first hell. I don't know how long it's been first six months of the of the pandemic in the shutdown in college sports. I think he did a pretty good job of the conference and kind of managing things and, you know, steering them always towards listen to science and being very transparent about their decision to postpone the season. The situation, though in the last 23 weeks. Uh, I don't really have an explanation. I'm trying to get, uh get to the bottom of all. In terms of whether the conference has done everything it possibly could have to get ready as quickly as it possibly could have me. I think they were. They were caught off guard by, I think the big tent Sibling to John Boehner. Last we get John back. Larry, Larry Scott just sabotaged unwillingness phone line. That's a story. That's the kind of power Larry Scott has. Why can you not get college football back? Ah. I could just hear Tom. Just your tone of voice, and it just screamed, incredulous nous. And the political aspect of it. I really I knew about, But I didn't think about in the idea that you have a political Arm to all this. That is just just simply not being helpful. If anything, it's it's being almost adversarial. To get this thing back is unbelievable. John. We just we lost You there. You're saying that you're just you've been trying to To get some answers as to where Larry Scott is fitting into all of this over the last couple of weeks, and it seems to be eluding you. Yeah.

"PAC 12 Commissioner Larry Scott says he is hopeful a CZ well, although he's still waiting on The green light from local governments. The conference remains on pause. But Larry Scott says restrictions in California and Oregon Let's be lifted before the conference could formalize a return to play plan Wednesday, conference officials said they didn't have approval from the states to start contact practice officials in California and Oregon. Telling the Pac 12 that wasn't the case. There are no restrictions against beginning contact practices are holding competition at the state level. Larry Scott says the next step is for the Pac 12 and its member schools in those states to obtain clarification from city and county public health officials. Governor Gavin Newsom, pointing out in California. There is nothing preventing the conference for moving forward. Quote. They can resume football. Nothing in the guidelines that says the Pac 12 cannot move forward. Period full stop. I want to make that crystal clear. Bottom line. Testing or no testing type protocols will lose protocols. There is one thing that does need a buy in For this return to happen. Faith. There's our Bomani Jones. If they have access to adequate testing, and they seem to have access to more testing than they would have when they made this announcement before they've got access to testing and the ability to make this safe, then go ahead and do it. The problem is, I have to trust them that these things are actually true. No, this becomes a convoluted mix. Because part of perhaps there may be access to testing is the fact that the president of the United States offered this swing state heavy conference some of the emergency stack that they have, which is something he probably would not have done with the pack. 12 because those states probably aren't going to wind up swinging, right. That's part of what gets us here, But it takes me to a point I may call the top credibility is like insurance. You don't need it until you need it. And so they're put in some provisions that should be encouraging, for example of a player test positive you're with Hill from activities for 21 days that seems like something that would be good. There are these thresholds about certain number of players on a team if they get them to the whole team can't play. The problem is when you don't trust the people who are doing this, you've gotta wonder since those thresholds. Stringent. Are the schools going to be honest about the fact that guys were testing positive? What's going to happen? We had this happen with the schools in the SEC who wouldn't give us testing numbers? And then you have a guy like those rock come out like everybody had it is that we let you guys know that hopefully they don't get it again. So why should I trust these people when they're the ones that get all the money and the ones that they're sitting out there to do? This are the ones who get none of it. I don't trust a single bit of it. All I can do is cross my fingers and hope that this goes most of us don't know enough to know medically, whether they're doing the right thing. Not. We just got a bunch of people who have not earned our trust. And it is a dereliction of duty for the people who are in our jobs to take the word of the big 10 at every turn and just be like, Oh, yeah, well, they say it's cool. Let's just go ahead and get into it. They deserve a serious level of scrutiny. You a sucker. If you don't give it to big 10 backpack, 12 could be right on their heels. Plenty of college football coming up on Keyshawn J will And Zubin. Our own Kirk Herbstreit joining the show just after eight o'clock eastern time. 8:10 A.m. Eastern SportsCenter all night, ESPN radio. Still many questions to play out regarding the college football season this fall. The ugly already, though, looking to the winter season. Remember when the Pac 12 scrapped its fall season last month. Their decision went even deeper than just the football season kind of buried in there. The conference that it would There would be no competition for the remainder of calendar 2020 That's not just fall sports. That's AH, good six weeks into what is normally the college basketball season as well. But now changes coming there. The Division one council voting Wednesday to delay the start of the men's and women's basketball seasons until November, 25th. The council following its vote, saying no exhibition games or scrimmages could be held before that date. That's the day before Thanksgiving. Senior vice president of basketball Dan Gavit, saying it's a unified approach that focuses on the health and safety of student athletes as they compete toward the 2021. Division one championships. Basketball may not necessarily be as much of a logistical nightmare as football can be ESPN College basketball insider Jeff Borzello, a fewer players on each team makes a little bit easier. Travel. And they're from a bubble in a lot of nonconference events, at least and football. They never talked about bubbling nonconference for any cover any in football, So I think the whole aspect makes it a little bit easier. A little bit more likely that cow's backside might get off without a hitch. Relatively speaking a lot of the November December tournaments, it seems like they're going to be bubbles, whether it's at Disney Mohegan Sun I talked to. Probably people have named about 18 to 20 different bubble locations they're being talked about, you know, not all of them will happen. But you know, there are a lot of plans in place right now, a lot of proposals in place to bubble up a lot of these nonconference events. As it stands now, the college hoops season being delayed about three weeks until Thanksgiving. Check out ESPN Audio at home by telling Alexa play news from ESPN.

"States and the schools within them still have to get clearance at the local and city levels from public health officials able have contact practices. They haven't been able to do that to this point now the Pac 12 CEOs meet on Friday. Who knows when they will get that public health clearance or how long that will take. But it is possible if they get it sooner than later that we might see them at the end of October. PAC 12 officials had started the day Wednesday pretty much under the impression that six of its football teams could not begin contact practices or old competition. State officials in California and Oregon. Straighten out that line of thinking, saying That's not the case. Pak 12 commissioner Larry Scott some good progress today, with governors in California and Oregon, sending some strong signals that they're supportive and that state regulations won't be hurdles. This combined with access to daily testing, which we secured, gives our medical professionals comfort that we can Return safely. So you know, we're now gonna figure out what this all means. We still need approval from the local health officials in the counties in California, Oregon, But we're gonna push the envelope are soon I wanna play. Our coaches want to play. Our schools want to do so we could be so safely and today was a big step forward toward that. What's your ideal timeline? I mean best case scenario is six weeks of practice training camp starting end of October early November, But that's still subject Tio County approval so we don't have yet so that that's the best case and we're going to do everything possible to play this fall. If we can play a Pac 12 championship game and have teams Compete for college football playoff. If it's possible. Do you think that it's possible for the Pac 12 to be included in the college football playoff? Given the late start? We are behind the April. There's no question about that. But, you know, we determined earlier on, we were only gonna play if we could do it safely.
Los Angeles - Nothing Preventing USC, Pac-12 Teams From Playing This Season, Gov Newsom
"A very weird day when it comes to PAC twelve football future of it got earlier this morning, the big ten announced they're coming back. They're coming back on October twenty third they they're confident that with their testing and the way that college football has kind of gone over the past couple of weeks at other schools that they can safely bring kids back now you and I both gone on record saying, we don't think it's the smartest thing in the world to play college football. So I'm not saying that I want college football to come back I don't. US He really wants to play their players. All wrote a letter to Gavin Newsom but here's why I'm bringing this up the big ten and outs were coming back Larry Scott the commissioner of the pack twelve immediately she's a statement that says because of the governor's guidelines we are not allowed to practice in the state of California which means USC Ucla Stanford and cal all would be unable to practice about an hour later Gavin newsom the governor California was doing a press conference and he was asked is that true that you won't allow those teams to practice? Here's part of what newsome hadn't his answer quote. I WanNa make this crystal clear. Nothing in the state guidelines denied the ability for the PAC twelve to resume quite to the contrary. This has been a misrepresentation of the facts and quote. What is Larry Scott and the PAC twelve referencing when they say. They can't play because of NEWSOM and NEWSOM says, it's not true who's telling the truth here newsome. Governor ain't Lion Larry Scott I. I've never been a fan of I think he could screw up a ham sandwich. But I but I do think that newsome is telling the truth and I think we're at the point John Now with the big ten resuming along with the SEC in the big twelve and the ACC, I think it is time for the PAC twelve to seriously consider resume or starting the season starting it earlier. They've got access to this rapid testing program. They're able to test players in in very short order really quick tests. I don't see any reason why the PAC twelve shouldn't be playing right now the. Monroe. Saint Brown Graham Harrell Bunch of USC. People have tweeted this letter out basically to goose to newsom saying, please let us play and newsom saying, no, you're you're allowed to play. It's it's up to your it's up to your athletic directors. It's up to your chancellor's I. Think it's time to have a vote among twelve PAC twelve schools and get a season started.

We make very clear, big football fan, okay? Here's the issue. I'm having. If we find out that this studies coming out of the big 10 Are showing that While the number of 32 35% of the athletes who end up with the covert, whether symptomatic are asymptomatic are ending up in long term heart issues. Do you even take the risk that the players could contract the virus in the first place, let alone spread it? I know you've got testing. Gonna put that testing in there. But is there any doubt that playing in the sports is likely to lead to More covert positive results. And are you willing, knowing that you're increasing the risk of contracting the disease in the first place? Are you willing to put the long term health of your student athletes at risk? If I'm the commissioner until we get that sorted out. I'm not doing anything. I'm not moving forward at any of it. And as if as if things couldn't get worse in 2020. Forget Koven. Forget about it.

And then he also said that the he take a pay cut as well. No, he's the highest paid commissioner by far next more than you know, a guy in the SEC or he makes about five times more than him.

And nobody in management at all says that I don't I don't know that. Well, they mean, if you don't have content, it's tough to ran to run a Pac 12 network when there's no factual sports being played, so I understand that, but it's hard. All right, real quick Before we get Teo foreplay this is obviously signify in the Milwaukee Bucks still haven't come out to the court for Game six of the Orlando Magic, and there's been some discussion of the Bucks about a boycott. So that's according to ESPN, which could no shows about 40 minutes outside of hockey. So if there's one team that should not play, I mean, all of them should think about it. But if there's one team that really what it's not a Kenosha issue, it's ah. Planet Earth issue, but you know it's right there. And I know they mentioned that to Mike Budenholzer yesterday when you got the defensive player that your warning It was certainly on the table, So yeah. All right. That was as of about three minutes ago. So keeping up to date if the bucks come out to take on the magic in the meantime, a lot of good stuff today in your foreplay, including if you miss Doc Rivers, Paul George.

"Yeah and you know in many ways like I called Larry Scott Moron earlier, and he knows the math on this. He's really not a moron. He is just a businessman that is trying to run the PAC twelve. Now, we can talk about Larry Scott's other decisions cough cough PAC, twelve network but at the end of the day, that's what this is about this entire. Thing is about money in the money it will cost and I've seen some people bring up the idea of bubbles being a cost that is just something that schools can't really at the end of the day foot and that you know the NCAA can't really even I kinda understand that to an extent but and I know that the TV money is not as substantial. The NBA as it is in college and I know that it's a nine figure expenditure to create a bubble that makes sense and we're talking about having to create multiple regional bubbles given the fact that there are three hundred and fifty seven teams in individual one now versus thirty teams in the NBA or is not even thirty. What is it twenty two that are? Actually in the bubble wrap? Yeah. It's twenty two that are in the bubble. So I get that this is a cost that is going to be insane i. get the fact that there's also a question of title nine having talked to some coaches about it like a lot of their a lot of the people they talked to within their own compliance department I guess or. Athletic Department may be as the better way to put it say that they would run into title nine issues just doing a men's tournament you'd have to do a woman's tournament is well. I. Think that they're probably much more concerned about the men's tournament given that it's the one that makes money. Let's not say that that's right. We should certainly put on a women's Tournament next year, but the end of the day, the one that makes the incredible amount of money is the men's tournament. That's the one the NCAA cares about, and that's the one that they're going to be focusing on trying to get to happen beyond all. Shadow. Of doubt. Now, the problem with all of this is the NCAA has had since March to come up with ideas to make this work..

On the heels off the Big 10 canceling full sports in the last 45 50 minutes. The word is out about the Pac 12 that we just assume that this was probably imminent. But the Pac 12 according to ESPN, Has also postpone full sports, so the dominoes are now dropping. And, of course, Pac 12 Pretty big Conference here, folks. The Pac 12 CEO group voted unanimously today. Postpone full sports through the end of the year, and we look at options to play in the spring and again. The money that we're talking about the collegiate sports money, especially football. On this level. We're talking billions and billions of dollars. The health safety and well being of our student athletes and all those connected to Pac 12. Sports has been our number one priority since the start of this current crisis. This is, according to the Pac 12 commissioner Larry Scott. Larry Scott of he actually brought it to the Pac 12 when Larry got in. It was packed 10 and Larry Scott, who my family knows from Saint Petersburg, Florida, where you know where from South champ of my kids went to school in ST Pete. And my, uh, my daughter was very good Friends with Larry Scott's son. In fact, I think they both had at a very young age. Little puppy love. I think they both had little crushes on themselves back on each other back in probably 3rd 4th grades. Uh, at school, so we know Larry Scott, and he's got a nice family. He's got a great Southern. My daughter absolutely adored. So in the statement, Larry Scott The Commission of the Pac 12 said. Our student athletes, fans, staff and all those who love college sports would like to have seen the season played. This calendar year is originally planned. And we know how disappointing this is. Impacted Pac 12 student athletes will continue to have their scholarships guaranteed. Same thing with my daughter and I share this with you when my daughter season was canceled my daughter for those who don't know Was recruited. My daughter is set the play Division one women's soccer for a northeastern New England University. And same thing, so their season was canceled. Their conference was canceled about three weeks ago. And it was also made very clear that there still recruited all the scholarship guarantees all of the right money. Whatever was guaranteed is still in place, and they're hoping to play women's soccer. In the full So again all the scholarships are going to be guaranteed in the Pac 12. The conference is also encouraging the two grand students who opt out of playing this academic year an additional year of eligibility. Now there are rumblings and rumors and this is so unprecedented that That should occur. The delay. They ought to just for students affected by covert 19 with this season, they ought to be granted an additional year automatically have had eligibility. This is just unprecedented. This is just never Happened before. According to ESPN last month. In the wake of the same decision from the Big 10 the Pac 12 announced that it would proceed with a conference on Ly football schedule to begin September 26th. And now clearly that has changed. The Pac twelve's decision to cancel the full schedule Tuesday again follows the same decision from the Big 10 which announced that it would cancel full sports About an hour into the Pac 12 CEO group meeting so again following the decision for the Big 10 the Pac 12 has just announced, so the question is going to be what's gonna happen with the other conferences, SEC and go down the list. Water. That is, they are all the dominoes going to drop. Here are all the shoes going full as Faras College sports, and can they pick it up in the spring? Again? The hope for my daughter and I just feel so bad for the college kids, all the student athletes. The non athletes. I just feel awful for these kids. And and what has changed my daughter? Impact and listen, I'm not crying for my daughter. I'm using my daughter as an example off the millions and millions Of students the college kids in this country but also the thousands and thousands and thousands of college student athletes in this country and you look of the kids that just graduated high school. Didn't have class had to do distance learning. My daughter had no prom. A lot of the special things that you look forward to. So on top of these kids having their senior years just decimated. Now their college experience going into the fall. And with my daughter, her college experience and the fact that she should have already been at school 11 days ago for training. Without the Wuhan flu virus, the Chinese viruses, Trump puts it. My daughter would have been with her team 11 days ago on August 1st already practicing. With Scrooge games coming up some I think at a conference Ah, square, which games and then the the in Conference games, and my daughter would have started her freshman year off in college. On a normal footing. And of course, that's Not in the cards that's clearly not happening. But as I've heard a lot of the teams, ooh meetings and I was in on the school wide And my daughter's going to be going to University of New Hampshire, where she's going to play women's soccer. And I was in on this doom call with the athletic director for the university. And this was three weeks ago, and they were just hundreds and hundreds of people on the zoom call..

"Larry Scott when schools could re open campuses and bring the student athletes back I think it's more likely than not that there's gonna be a staggered return to campus I don't know that schools like Arizona state with eighty thousand students or UCLA with fifty sixty thousand students are gonna flip the switch and say it's you know it's it's it's business as usual that one back three kids to a dorm pact signing all packed classrooms so I think the priciest staggered starts that might allow student athletes to start coming back since even that's apart and think about it because I always said college football is going to be pushed back in the fall because you can't play the games until you have classes going on on the campus they could stagger it and that's the way they could spend it to give a little loophole to get the student athletes back once again though I have a tough time seeing even if we're just going to bring the student athletes back and then some yeah let's just open the doors in the fall because what's the alternative the alternative is to sit at home like what I'm doing right now and you'll learn online and do I think even if you let your student athletes back is it going to still be safe right now probably no and you probably just can't only allow the student athletes back had this to nap it's another people.

LeBron James continues fight against NCAA, announcing support of 'Fair Pay to Play' Act
"College sports yes you're listening to caspian los angeles lebron james has this thing called the shop right this show on HBO and gavin newsom the governor of california has been talking about newsome awesome was a baseball player at santa clara yes so he knows that they monetize student athletes all the time so you do you have this i do okay this was newsome with lebron maverick carter on the uninterrupted deciding whether or not to sign a bill that would allow college athletes to be able to monetize their name and likeness and to be able to make endorsements our cash here's gavin newsom i don't want to say this is checkmate this i don't want to say this checkmate but this is a major problem for them to be brought the maverick carter put pen to paper right now what is going to change and what's it gonna do it's going to initiate initiate dozens of other states introduced similar legislation and it's going to change college sports for the better by having now the interest finally of the athletes on par with the interests of the institutions now we're rebalancing that power arrangement let's do it let's do all right so he actually signs the bill on tv cowboy this this is this is number one reason reason why we've created this platform to be able to have moments like this where we got the governor of california signing a bill to allow athletes in college in here's a little bit more from lebron sure i don't wanna say this house opinion about it went off to any one of these big time colleges where i'm pretty much that twenty-three jersey would've sold all over the place without my name on the bag but everybody would have known the likeness my body would have been on the NCAA basketball game two thousand and four and the sosthene center would have been sold ought every single night there so coming from the this me and my mom we didn't have anything we wouldn't have been able to benefit at all from it and the university of neighbor to capitalize on everything that i would have been for that year or two or whatever so understand and with those kids are going through i feel for those who've mcguire that's wild personal in that obviously was today at training camp mason and orland ESPN LA lebron james there you heard from gavin newsom to me this is the silver bullet solution to paying college college athletes it is well first of all let's make a point here though this particular bill does not authorize colleges colleges to pay athletes what it allows is for them to make money off of their name and outside agent and to be able to be due to endorse somebody or something like to endorse nike if you're a top-flight athlete and this to me is a very fair way to deal with compensating college athletes because those athletes with a high profile will make a bunch of money those athletes without a high profile won't necessarily make anything so to me this makes perfect and complete sense if you are as he said lebron james at the collegiate level last year if you were zion williamson you could have been a nike endorser by the time you were a freshman at duke and it would have been totally okay the biggest stars would make the biggest money and and that's the way college sports should move forward this is insanely overdo it should've happened a long time ago ed o'bannon was in the room and ed o'bannon was the guy hi who originally filed a lawsuit against these guys because he was the face of a video game that made millions of dollars and he got zero from it when when he when the national championship at UCLA the NCAA which if you listen to the show you know i think a bunch of phonies and i wish the whole organization organization will go away but the NCAA makes billions with a b. often these kids billions and as brand points tout the kids often in the case of of some of these inner city kids come from poor households come from single parent households could really use a little bit of what all this money that they're making and and let's make no mistake here when lebron stock would not allow us ed oh man manning is an example when obama was at UCLA they sold a number thirty one UCLA basketball jersey in the student store that sold out as fast as they can get it in their UCLA was ranked number one in the country ed o'bannon wore number thirty one and they were all wearing it at the games how do you make the argument that that's not his name and likeness of course it's his name and likeness and if he is being marketed and sold like that he's entitled to a percentage uh of the prophets and the funny thing was mace they wouldn't put his name on the back so his actual jersey would say o'bannon by the students store would just be number thirty you're just get around paying him and lebron's one hundred percent right yep that that this is something that that should happen a long time ago i'm glad that gavin newsom here's some stake in the lead on this and your next thing's going to be well the NCAA is threatening to keep teams from california out of let's say the college football the playoffs are out of the NCAA tournament the way this bill was written first of all it doesn't come into effect till twenty two twenty three correct so nobody that's a student now is going to benefit from it it's it's gonna start in twenty twenty three and they've written the bill in a way that the NCAA can't do that can't can't single them out that's how they've prepared the bill how's that we'll read it read the LA times article today it explains it in detail they've written the bill which basically soclean prohibits anyone from in indemnified these kids from being ruled eligible for this for this specific so campaign NCWA keep a school out if a player is making money i don't think they can well that's what that's what the NC double a. threatened has threatened to do but the way this is written is that it would make it illegal for them to i would compare to the donald sterling case donald sterling when he sued the the NBA his shelly had already indemnified the the sterling's from being able to so he was an essence ensuing himself off the NCAA if you read the times article today it lays out in detail how the NCAA can try they can try and and do this but the way the bill has been written is it would not threaten their eligibility now the NCAA rules they try and change the rules but andrew how they're going to do it with new awesome i think this is going to it's going to force the other states to what is it going to go on like i i can imagine a world where if california's by itself and california schools i would imagine since he NCW becoming an advantage owns the college football playoff and runs the NC double a. tournament i can imagine them being excluded however this bill is now picking up steam in south carolina it's which would affect clemson it's picking up the contrary very to you know dabo sweeney who says the day college athletes get paid he's gonna walk away so this guy with one hundred million dollars guaranteed state of new york is now pushing this legislation nation i think the reason why twenty twenty three why in five years this goes into effect is to allow other states to catch up to the state of california when you're which by the way other states are always catching up to the state of california right well think about it if the other states don't follow suit it gives the the state of california a tremendous advantage in recruiting and other stuff they have to follow suit or their kneecapping their own teams is the the interesting thing to me is that so many people at the NCAA we are now trying to say no no no this this is a bad thing it's a bad thing because of course they're going to say that it puts them out of business it takes money out of their pocket but you know what you watch all the conferences are gonna come out and they're going to say they're disappointed the twelve does say they're disappointed in the past passage of SP SP to a six believes it will have a significant negative consequence for our student athletes and broader universities in california well of course they're going to say that larry scott by the way makes five point three million in dollars per year and he's not good at his job now he's terrible terrible it is a job okay so the bill and it was the person who brought it to the due to the floor was a state senator named nancy skinner she's a democrat out of berkeley and here's what i was talking about with you before present sound too liberal prohibits hits the NCAA from barring a university from competition if it's athletes are compensated the university of california system the california l. a. -fornia state university schools stamford in USC all opposed the bill saying they feared it would increase costs to ensure compliance with the law and lead defines or expulsion but the bill specifically prohibits the from barring university from doing that so let's see how it all plays out now he's newsom said that that presidents and boosters urged him to veto the bill let he felt strongly the state needed to address the racial gender and economic injustices

"And when I'm talking about is the Pac twelve run by Larry Scott that they. Been involved in this or they tried to ameliorate the situation or are they are they lone, man out. No, it's my understanding that people from the pack twelve and from Pac twelve schools have spoken to stay legislators. I mean, during Senate floor debate about this. There was reference made to conversations that state senators had had with athletic directors from schools around the state. So I'm assuming that Pac twelve would be among those that would have been reaching out, you know, so there's been effort made. But, you know, again listening to the debate that was had, which is available on on video. And if people are interested, you can find it on the California legislature website. It's still available through to be viewed, you know, there's just a, you know, a lot of feeling among those folks that athletes ought to have this to have this ability to, to make money in this way. And they are willing to risk this run this risk. The state of California in the hope that they can force broader change by the NCAA, which is something that California legislators have done on a variety of issues, nationally, not just, you know in college sports. So they've been they've done this in college sports as well. But, you know, for example, the car emission standards, that are in place in California, sort of set the standard for the entirety of the country. And this is being fought over now. You know with the Trump administration. So this is not new territory for legislators in the state of California to try to force change nationally based on their own sensibilities of what's right. And what's not, then there's always a political aspect, or the usually as a political aspect of everything in this case is there is there a way for these two sides to find any common ground, or is the incidentally, so dug in on, on his basic principles on this subject that you're not gonna see an accommodation. I it's hard for me to see where there's a point of compromise, when you're talking about the issue principle, and the and the principal issue. For the NC double A at this point isn't necessarily defending system in saying, okay, well athletes, you know, shouldn't be allowed to make money off their name, image and likeness. I, I don't think that's what Mark Emerton has said, either Amherst has said that he would, you know, he's fine with this conversation being had within the membership of the association with the association gets dug in about is the notion that these association that is the member schools should be given the ability to make the rules themselves and not have the made not have the rules made for them..

"And just talk about the league itself. Because I mean, it's hard to find an article on the Pac twelve that isn't negative in a no this maybe picking on them. But it starts with Larry Scott the Commissioner at you know, a lot of investigative work out in Oregon that has been done on him in the league. And and they're, you know, forget the scandal. That's going on with Shawn Miller. I mean that's been going on for a while. But it just doesn't seem like this league can really catch a break and on top of that you had the UCLA basketball. Coaching search which was both comical and tragic all at the same time. So where did the Pac twelve overall before we even get back a football, go wrong? Yeah. I think there are two buckets here. And there's some stuff that definitely lands on Larry Scott desk. Listen, it goes back to the the TV deal, which was three well, cutting off three billion dollar deal way back in two thousand twelve and it was revolutionary, and it was enormous stuff. Both for conference that was a power five conference being run like a mom and pop shop. It was transformative. They've created a yellow in network, but you know, stemming back from that they made some mistakes as far as not partnering with another network or having a partner in their in their conference network to help monetize it. So that's held them back a little bit. And what was one say revolutionary TV deal has sort of been passed. And now the gap between the Pac twelve. And the other power five leagues as far as revenue was growing. And you can throw some of that on Larry Scott desk, then you could throw some of the leadership issues, he sort of cut out the more of a, you know, Commissioner to president model, and that chased a lot of a dis, and he's made missteps as far as just overall leadership, and and sort of perception things, you know, the way he goes about as far as his own salary and moving the league and sort of opulent spending. So a lot of that is fair criticism of Larry Scott net land on his desk, but they've also had campus level issue. Larry, Scott is not responsible for the fact that USC has been a dumpster fire Ray in just a in many ways, and Larry Scott is not responsible for the fact that UCLA in football and basketball has had a hard time getting out of its own way. And if those two programs are are are are floundering along that's going to be a real problem for the Pac twelve. You know, listen, there are also issues, and he talks about it all the time. You know that that are not conference related that are not Larry Scott related. They can't do anything about the time zone. They have an issue as far as recruiting base out there being two centered on California, they could use a bigger footprint. Those aren't Larry Scott's problems. But all these things are now hitting at once. And I it does it creates a bad narrative for the league. But a lot of this could be cured Paul if they just win some more, football and basketball games talking to Ralph Russo. Speaking of some of the dumpster fires. I'm sure you saw the story yesterday. Reggie bush. Not that he's got credible. But still he's a pretty famous name campaigning for urban Meyer..

"Let's bring in Ralph Rousseau Ralph. We've had quite a conversation about this new proclamation from the pack twelve as we say Hello to you. Give us the backstory on this. And and we know they're not going to change. But we're does it really matter what they do out there. Well, I mean, it matters to them. They were becoming less and less relevant on a national stage. Least lately now that could be cyclical, and and we'll see what happens in the upcoming years. So will you say does it matter? I I don't know how much you would should matter to the big ten in the SEC. And folks of major college football teams around the country back twelve is sort of isolated itself a little bit by not being as good in the last couple of years now again, these things are cyclical looks like off Oregon could have a pretty darn good team. And we'll see what happens at Stanford, and there's all kinds of issues going on with the LA schools. But yeah, I mean, ultimately, they can complain all they want about. Well, we played nine games, and we don't really often schedule ex US schools, and because we play nine conference games. And it's well game in a twelve team conference. We are really sort of the numbers are stacked against us. We're going to accumulate more losses are good teams are gonna play each other are going to be more likely to play each other in crossover games. You know, that's all true. But what you do to fix that. Is you have one of your really good teams? Be better pay. No, you win more non conference games. You win more bowl games to sort of set the stage for your reputation and things along those lines. So yes, they have some issues as far as equity and and conference scheduling things along those lines. But they're bigger issue is their teams have been good enough. What's till the camera back for a second and just talking about the league itself? Because I mean, it's hard to find an article on the Pac twelve that isn't negative. And I know this maybe picking on them, but it starts with Larry Scott the Commissioner at you know, a lot of investigative work out in Oregon that has been done on him in the league. And and they're, you know, forget the scandal. That's going on with Shawn Miller. I mean that's been going on for a while. But it it just doesn't seem like this league can really catch a break and on top of that you had the UCLA basketball. Coaching search which was both comical and tragic all at the same time.

It was transformative. They've created a yellow network, but you know, stemming back from that they made some mistakes as far as not partnering with another network or having a partner in their in their conference network to help monetize it. So that's held them back a little bit. And what was one day revolutionary TV deal has sort of been passed. And now the gap between the Pac twelve and the other power five leagues as far as revenue was growing, and you can throw some of that on Larry Scott desk, then you could throw some of the leadership issues he sort of cut out. The more of a, you know, Commissioner to president model, and that chased a lot of a dis, and he's made missteps as far as just overall leadership, and and sort of perception things, you know, the way he goes about as far as his own salary and moving the league and sort of opulent spending.

For Cal in the Big Game, its always maybe next year
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. For Cal in the big game. It's always maybe next year. There are times when a habit never grows old Stanford's football program nose. The feeling no matter how often the cardinal beat cow, and that's nine street wins after Saturday's twenty three thirteen victory. There's an exhilarating freshness to carrying the axe around the field, and it's all the sweeter. If it happens in strawberry canyon. There wasn't much to say about the game. Not with the bears. Simply refusing to accept the golden opportunities coming their way, there were no trombone players on the field. No mud-soaked miracles or fond farewells Trump beloved coach, none of the vivid developments that have characterized the big games history. And it's not such a crushing development for the bears. Seven five who will feel better about things when they're bowl game to be determined. Sunday comes around later this month. Still nothing discuss Cal sporting community. Like the site of Stanford winning this game with the student section big. Sunlight people. Were in. No rush to leave not even after Paulson debates. Forty three yard interception return setup. Stanford's final score in the weaning minutes. This had been terrific day for attendance to the point where the announced figure of fifty seven thousand eight hundred fifty eight actually seemed a few thousand short making a pleasant. Contrast to the desolate Levi stadium Friday nights Pac twelve championship game, oddly, the only disappointing attendances you was on Stanford's end of the six sections set aside for the red-clad visitors in the stadium southeast corner. Some were notable for their vacancy, but the voices were loud and proud backed by the ever ninety Stanford band, and those people got a mighty reward at game's end heading their way trotting joyously across the field. We're seniors Jake Bailey. JJ Sega Whiteside and Ryan Beecher toting the weighty impressive acts as so many Stanford players have done before in a rivalry carrying this much tradition. You'd like to think they trade the thing off on occasion. But. This trophy has become strictly farm property. It's always maybe next year for cow. Always a sense of envy and regret. Nobody expected the bears passing game to even approach Stanford's high-powered attack led by quarterback cage Acosta. Hello and our Sega Whiteside who entered the game with fourteen touchdown catches. And yet the chances were there and roundly blown in the second quarter with Stanford leading ten three quarterback. Chase Garber had Jordan Dunkin open in the end zone on a third and five pass from the seven yard line. But overshot him Dunkin barely getting a fingertip on the ball the bear settled for another. Greg Thomas field goal wide receiver. Jeremiah Hawkins had a couple of nice catches on the day. But he'll mostly be remembered dropping a perfect pass along the right sideline in the third quarter costing the bears about a twenty yard play and killing Dr. Then there was a deebo spectacular end zone. Interception early in the fourth quarter. Notable by the fact that the intended receiver MO ways was nowhere near the ball. All when garbs finally connected on a touchdown. Throw an eleven yard Dunkin. There were just ten seconds left in the game. He's a younger player, and he's got to continue to improve coach Justin Wilcox that have gardeners. I thought he took a step forward. One hundred ninety seven yards passing to Custos two hundred thirty seven even though there were some opportunities. He would love to have back. You're going to have a tough time beating Stanford if you're not scoring touchdowns in describing the mood of his post game locker room Wilcox said everybody's kicked in the gut. And as the regular season ends that could apply in large part to the entire pack twelve aside from the lamentable TV contract and ever do be officiating. The championship game is an ongoing disaster Levi stadium with a contract running through next season and an option for twenty twenty beyond that it's likely to find a more lively neutral site home in Las Vegas. But if anyone's thinking clearly that game should be returned to the home fields of top seeded teams as it was in two thousand thirteen. In Stanford overcame, a hostile setting to win at Arizona state. Then again, it's tough for anyone to think clearly when packed off Commissioner Larry Scott seem so consistently misguided even the Washington and Utah fans were booing Scott during Friday nights postgame ceremony. But why so many reasons I'd start with the fact that college football, and especially the Pac twelve needs an eighteen playoff. While Scott preposterously insists that four is absolutely the right number as for the lingering mood after Saturday's big game. It was a time for Stanford's Victoria's chance and Cal second thoughts. There's nothing you can tell our guys right now that will make them feel better said Wilcox. There was deep appreciation. However for a home crowd that finally resembled a big time collegiate atmosphere gazing into the jam-packed eastern stands. I just stood there at enjoyed the moment said senior Maliki McMorris the rumble. In stumble in fullback who provided a few choice moments during the game, you see videos all the time of how the police used to be rock.
