Not big, but very east.

Fun fact:

Despite their names, Saint Mary’s University and  Saint Francis Xavier University are Public institutions in Canada.

Perhaps they should be better at submitting to the bosses around here, aina?

We can only hope the new Marquette message board promised by the letter writers is full of lawlessness and less moderation

Matt Brown reported yesterday that both Oregon and Washington have met with B10, but it doesn't look like an offer is forthcoming. Said that the conference might be out ahead of the presidents on this.

This would be a good reason why the networks are opening up talks with the B12 early. The PAC12 is too unstable to commit 100's of millions of dollars to. Substituting SDSU and UNLV for Oregon and Washington would be a game changer for the networks.

I feel bad for the PAC12. Yes, USC and UCLA screwed them , but it also sound like the last commish, Larry Scott, was an overpaid 'do nothing' leader and the schools are responsible for that.

But they also have to step up and perform. Two top ten teams in action this weekend. Utah lost at an unranked Florida and Oregon got absolutely trounced v Georgia.  The P12 would be more valuable if they actually played better football. 

BTW hiring a 36 year old coach who previously was DC at Georgia was probably not a great choice.

Yep. Larry Scott was a bust. Pac 12 network never took off and it really hurt the conference. Huge mistake.

I mean, their last great coach was a guy in his early 40s who spent his entire career in the Northeast at FCS schools except for a single year as the OC in Eugene.

Georgia went from an offensive/QB mind in Mark Richt to a 40 year old DC from Bama in Kirby Smart.

I don't know if Lanning is the guy, but its not like he's some coddled legacy SEC hire.  He was a D2 player who went from HS coach to coaching for one of the best FCS schools within 4 years.  And then position coaching at UGA another 4 years after.  And he coached OLBs and that absurd defense at UGA.  And was one of the highest ranked recruiters in the country.

He may not work out but I don't think it was a bad hire at all.  And getting thumped by one of the 2 best teams in the country has little bearing on that, IMO.  They had to replace their QB, 2 of their top 3 RBs, and a couple WRs, not to mention Thibodeaux

Probably had to leave more because they aren't getting big CFP money if they don't, particularly if the P12 gets left out at any point. They didn't leave because it will make the football program better, but rather because they have a big enough brand to do it and the money they get will allow them to continue even if the football program is mediocre.

That’s part of it but the biggest reason the PAC-12 stinks is because USC has been garbage for a decade.

It’s not the PAC-12’s fault USC has been cheap and made bad hires since Carroll left. Kiffin, Sark (drinking issues were known at UDub), Clay Helton. They’d been pretty mediocre since John McKay and John Robinson left (the first time) until Carroll was hired…a hire that was universally panned by sports media.

Larry Smith stumbled his last 2 years before Robinson came back but he won the Pac-10 3 times and finished top 20 4 out of 6 years.

Other than Paul Hackett, USC never went more than 3 years without winning the conference and finishing in the top 10 between Robinson first leaving in 1982 and Carroll arriving in 2001.  Were they contending for Nattys?  No.  But they weren't mediocre like they have been post Carroll.
