It's up to the conference to make USC's final bye meaningless.

To be honest... I would have been a little vindictive as an AD toward the SoCal schools.

They could have given some of the other schools a better schedule and let them have

what's left.

SC is allowed to play Week 0 but not CU and ASU.

The Pac-12 was fine with ASU/CU moving the game to week 0 but the NCAA said no. Why does the IMPOTENT NCAA have any say at all in regard to how the Pac-12 wants to schedule its games?

SC gets a bye week before the champ game! And SC gets 2 bye weeks! COME ON MEN! How can the conference possibly approve THIS for a team on its way out the door for more money? Is the conference that desperate for a Final 4 appearance before the close to assured playoff participation come 2023?

As to the 'plight' of UCLA? YAWN.

Thanks for the Civil War reference. If you are ASLEEP please do not WOKE up.

Thanks John for the fun read to start the week. Also, thanks for calling the OSU v uo game The Civil War. Lastly, hopefully the Pac 12 TV network will have a bye year, for our viewing pleasure.

Canzano with the scoop and score! Looking forward to the OSU UTAH game that will show off the new West Side on a Friday but bummed that it will be on a night most of the state will be playing High School Football.

Let the enthusiasm begin!!! I predict that College Game Day will be in Eugene on Nov. 11th.

John, what's the chance of interviewing Lee Corso on your radio show? The man is a legend and is the reason I watch College Game Day!

Of course Huskies and Ducks are going to whine. If there was a CFP for whining they’d be top 2 seeds

Sounds like they decided not to be petty and give USC and UCLA all tough road games. But that would have been warranted after USC and UCLA stabbed the league in the back.

I kinda like it. Seems a lot of strategic planning at play here. I would add: should SC get to the title game, having a bye the week prior could be a big advantage. On the other hand, I think their Goodbye Tour is going to be unpleasant and doubt they'll be playing for the title.

John, you previously commented that you were leaning towards favoring Utah for a threepeat of the PAC-12 title if Cam Rising came back. I know that I'm probably getting ahead of myself, but now that he's announced his return (plus also Brant Kuithe and almost the entirety of the defense), do you still find yourself leaning towards Utah? Or, have you seen something since bowl season ended that's made you change your mind?

Last half of season is when all teams knuckle down, and truly bash each other , and cannot wait to get revenge against the Beavers!

Go Ducks!

Thanks for the sneak peak! It let me book hotel rooms for Eugene before prices skyrocket.

It will be a very interesting season.

Washington has the schedule necessary to make a “statement” - DeBoer and company will rock

re: UW/ORE whining - why should this year be any different? Ducks are always whining about something…😎

Let’s hope for an official’s reset this coming season. I’d hate to see things get worse.

GO DAWGS

What I'm very interested is conference game kick off times. Our conference has been screwed for years over the start times.
