    I go once every 4 years to cast a second election ballot and vote for my deceased aunt and uncle who lived there…it’s kinda nice.

    learning that Utah is the single softest Twitter fanbase in America has been a nice perk of realignment

    I wonder how much the awful availability of the PAC12 network plays into those numbers. Seems unlikely that a big state school like Washington with an 11-2 record would have lower viewership than 6-7 Baylor.

    I was gonna use TCU in my example but with the season they had, I figure they picked up some casuals during the course of the season.

    B12 should boot out the three religious schools to make room for more P12 schools. Ostracize the Christians. Make them form their own league with the likes of Liberty imo.

    The recruiting pitch would basically write itself (and ensure some pretty bad recruiting classes)

    Arizona jumping ship without Arizona State feels more likely by the day.

    I wonder how the Arizona Board of Regents feels about that (the governing body of UA, ASU, and NAU). I'm not sure that would be quite as easy as it sounds.

    Wouldn’t be a fan. This only makes sense if you don’t think your conference has a lot of NFL prospects. I don’t think that’s the case with the new Big 12.

    If youre at a school with only a few NFL prospects, you should be a fan of it.

    Generally no single Big12 school is going to have enough prospect inventory to get the amount of scouts/coaches/gm's to show up en masse as they would at a big schools pro day. But if you pool all of the Conference's prospects together, put it in a more accessible location than stillwater or lubbock, youre going to get more decision-makers in front of your athletes = thus enhancing their ability to get scouted and drafted.

    Apparently that Arizona State president is a real snob about PAC academics which is quite great all things considered.

    Frankly I'm not sure the Pac-12 could deal with losing ASU academically.
