Bowled Over

I set the over/under for Pac-12 bowl victories at 2 so now that we are three games in, should it change? What do you think the Pac-12 will go? 4-3? 3-4 2-5? 1-6? 0-7?
I still think Oregon and Utah are the best bets.

In today’s episode of Pac-12 futility, Washington held Baylor to 67 points in the Alamo Bowl that made defensive coordinator Nick Holt an unpopular figure for Huskies fans. Aside from dropping the Pac-12 to 0-3, the loss served another purpose. It prevented a deluge of breathless claims this game served as a springboard for the conference toward next season. Larry Scott can’t wait for the Sun and Kraft Fight Hunger bowls.

Welcome To The Pac-12

There was an odd ending to USC’s 63-59 loss to Cal tonight. USC forward Dewayne Dedmon blocked a shot and Cal’s Allen Crabbe grabbed the ball and launched a desperation three-pointer with one second left on the shot clock and seven seconds left in the game.
Referee Dick Cartmell called USC’s Eric Strangis for a foul on Crabbe even though there was appeared to be little or no contact on the shot. Crabbe then made three free throws to seal the victory.

For Shame

USC obviously needed to find another radio station with the Lakers game on 710-AM but the selection of 1090-AM was a disaster for anyone who actually wanted to listen to the Cal game tonight. I got horrible reception driving through different parts of Southern California. Someone needs to find additional reception for the next game.
