    did you guys sign Gary Bryant? I assume it's not being announced until the all star games.

    Bryant Jr will at least give you 1 of the Top 25 prospects in California.

    Sad to see what the future holds for this incredibly talented freshman QB. Program is in shambles.

    While CU hiring someone like Dorrell technically makes life easier for us, it’s hard not to feel like the PAC-12 as a whole isn’t permanently slipping away from relevancy in cfb... Not saying every once in a while a team can’t get hot and make the playoff, but it’ll be like UW a few years ago where them losing to an SEC team feels like an inevitability... just a thought..

    Any Pac-12 team losing to an SEC squad feels like an inevitability. Has for more than a decade.

    Really wish we could’ve had an Oregon/Alabama matchup circa 2012 when Oregon had Mariota and Alabama still had dog shit quarterbacking.

    Maybe the PAC 12 schools should stop letting all your good QB's leave the conference in recruiting

    The Pac-12 problems are more than just losing qb's.

    Not so long ago I still believed we could bounce back and become competitive with the top SEC dogs or Clem/OSU, but now I’m not so sure. It’s like a tectonic shift happened around 06-08, cementing the power center of the sport into the SEC. And since then everyone else has been frantically trying to catch up.

    I’ll just say what I feel: you can’t hope to be a regular contender if your athletic dept. is determined to run a clean program free of bagmen & vitamin S while the other big boys do the opposite...

    Because one program is at the lowest it has ever been in recruiting just one year after having top 5 talent in the country is not a reason for concern. The PAC 12 has pumped out plenty of talent the past decade at the QB position (including a 1st rounder that was a 3 star with no offers). Florida loses way more talent to out of state programs on a regular basis (past 10 years) than California does and they have 3 major in state programs whereas California only has 1.

    Well he mentioned the PAC as a whole. Not CA. Rattler was from AZ. And Buchner is going to ND. So he has a point.
