How’s The Weather Again In Santa Clara?

Somehow I didn’t see Larry Scott cite weather as a reason for the Pac-12 moving its title game to Santa Clara. Let’s see, there have been three title games and one was in a downpour: At Stanford.

Hope that doesn’t happen this year.

    Wrong…. you hope that it DOES happen this year so that you can gloat about it and say “I told ya so!”……..

      Yup…and when he’s wrong, he changes his tune. He’s never admitted his writing blunders. Remember when he said scholarships shouldn’t be an issue? He changed his tune when we had a walk-on TE, playing only 12 on defense, and the roster down in the 40s for a few games.

        Exactly!….Wolfie doesn’t know the meaning of the word “retraction”…. heck, Scottie doesn’t know the meaning of a lot of words, but that’s besides the point…..what our defense did at the end of last year with only 12 players was nothing short of amazing….and there are some more talented players coming in this year, and the experience that our younger players enjoyed, should pay us big big dividends this season….losing Kennard, Breslin, Bailey and Uko will hurt, but I really like the way our shorthanded defense has looked this Spring….

          Yes, those are big losses. However, I’m excited about seeing a highly improved (and confident) Kevon Seymor, Sua Cravens getting even better, and McQuay’s emergence.

          Who knows…Lamar Dawson might finally live up to the #55 expectations. (not holding my breath)

            Yeah, Lamar Dawson reminds me of a few recruits recently who were more hype than substance… Dillon Baxter and Aundrey Walker come quickly to mind…. the secondary will be vastly improved under the continued mentoring by Josh Shaw and Hayes Pullard….

    Easily the dumbest decision of Larry Scott’s tenure. It is hard enough for fans to drop their plans in the middle of the Holiday season with one weeks notice and show up for a home game in the first week in December. Now both teams have to get off work or school, travel and find lodging at short notice. And at USC our students are studying for finals that weekend, so forget any of them going. It’s one thing to study all day and then go to the game for 4 hours, it’s another to travel up there 8 hours one way and miss all that studying time.

      Sort of agree, but at least you can plan to go to the game in ANY event, like a bowl game. You can get air (gas card in bucket’s case) and hotel (RV park for bucket) months in advance. If SC goes, that’s a bonus. Your argument re: students goes out the window if SC is not the home team. They’d have to travel anyway. Remember, if we find out a week or so in advance, the cost is HUGE. I don’t think it’s that bad, PLUS the Pac 12 will still split revenue from people that commit before the two teams are chosen and then end up getting a stinker like ucla or wsu. I say give it 2 years, then squawk.

        But if Scott kept the old system in place, wouldn’t you expect us to usually be the home team with the best record now that probation is over and the 4 and 5 star recruits are replenishing the team? This is a big slap at us and benefits the soon to be weaker Northern Division, with it being a Stanford home game every year. Having a half empty stadium on a rainy cold day in the Bay Area in December will make the conference look bad.

        • NOBSisdaMAN

          We’ll see. I hope that’s the case.

      I can’t remember, but wasn’t the ASU vs. Stanford game held on a Friday night just like the year prior?

      If I had my way, it would be to keep the game at the team’s stadium with the best record AND have it on a Saturday.

        And during the day, not later in the evening…..
