    Power 5 Preseason Predictions

    Agreed that would be fairly close given that tOSU doesn't have a P5 opponent on their non-conference schedule (although neither does Utah) but I don't see tOSU getting left out in this scenario. Of course there's always the unique set of circumstances that could work for Utah where Michigan...

    Power 5 Preseason Predictions

    I just have a hard time seeing them get in over say a 12-1 Michigan/OSU or a 12-1 OU/Texas. This of course assumes that the other 2 spots go to Clemson and the SEC Champion. And Utah is already ranked behind all 4 of those teams in the preseason coaches poll, using that as a gauge.

    Power 5 Preseason Predictions

    That's the thing about Utah, if they go 12-1 as Pac-12 champs they're likely gonna end up behind any other 1-loss P5 champ in the CFP standings. And even if they go 12-0 going into the Pac12 title game they'll have to turn around and beat UW a 2nd time or play an Oregon team who is arguably better.

    It also sounds like they will be distributing it out of state to a limited extent.

    Power 5 Preseason Predictions

    Tough to argue that. In his 4 years at Michigan he's only finished higher than 3rd once in the Big 10 East.

    Pac-12 Media Day 7/24

    Good discussion overall and I can definitely see both sides. It's not just about whether TV would pay more for the option to move the games to noon ET but the Pac-12 highlights become part of the barrage of highlights throughout the whole day. As for sacrificing game-day revenue Wilner just...

    True, and it helps that their toughest games aren't until November when the younger guys have that experience.

    Pac-12 Media Day 7/24

    Getting games more onto the national scene would increase national presence and perception. A 1-loss WSU wouldn't have gotten into the playoff last year over OU and that's because of perception.

    Pac-12 Media Day 7/24

    The Pac-12 is lagging behind from a perception standpoint. And fair or not, perception matters a lot in college football. No the noon ET timeslot isn't a highly desirable one but the Pac-12 needs to do something out of the box to help close the gap and this is an opportunity. All these start...

    Pac-12 Media Day 7/24

    That's probably true, but this is a timeslot the Pac-12 could take huge advantage of with their marquee games.

    Preseason Coaches Poll

    I'm not quite as high on Georgia as most everyone else is. Yes they have Fromm, a great OL, and a talented set of RB's but they lose their top 5 receivers and both coordinators. They'll likely roll into November undefeated but the schedule gets much tougher at that point and the winner of the...

    Pac-12 Media Day 7/24

    The Pac-12 can use the noon ET timeslot as an opportunity to showcase their big games where both the competition for marquee games is low but a large portion of the country is tuned into college football. The 2 or 3 biggest games of a given Saturday are usually at 7:30/8pm ET so that's a tough...

    Pac-12 Media Day 7/24

    You're absolutely right that games like WSU-Cal or Oregon State-Arizona aren't games with national appeal, but we're talking about a noon EDT timeslot where the competition will be similar type games from other conferences like Indiana-Minnesota, Rutgers-Maryland, Pitt-GT, BC-Wake, etc. The...

    Kind of ironic to hear the Pac12 talk about the benefits of additional exposure.

    Phil Steele 2019 preview

    I don't know that I'd say it's garbage but a few pretty good but not great teams. Nebraska's schedule happens to work out the best of the 4 contenders in the West which is just the reality of unbalanced schedules in the 12+ team conferences.
