    Thank God! I was worried about all the extra crime.

    East coast is still going to be crime-ridden. ACC and Big East football can't keep up...

    Would be great for the PAC-12, but not going to happen. The players will fold before August.

    I'll take even one or two games if that is how things turn out. I am not sure if other conferences are discussing the same thing, but I just want to reiterate my love for Larry "Ten-Steps-Ahead-of-You" Scott over Dan "Always-Playing-Catch-Up" Beebe

    Not that we will necessarily be a big draw, but I do not want us anywhere near a Monday night game.

    This.
    The last thing we'll need is a short preparation week coming off a Monday night game with no byes this season. The two Friday games are already a lot to handle, and the Hawaii game may as well be played on Sunday anyhow.

    It would also muck up travel plans for those who have already booked trips to road games (and home games if you're coming to Folsom from out-of-town)...I'd be pissed if that happened...

    That's my concern.

    Our schedule is tough enough without stacking a bunch of short weeks and not being able to get into a routine.

    I guess the other side of the coin is that with a tough schedule, a lot of times a game date that breaks the routines of both teams will generally favor the underdog.

    Given the academic focus of the Pac-12, this could cause some pushback from university presidents if there are a number of Monday night games. That takes the kids out of class on Monday and maybe Tuesday.

    Would be good for the in-state games to be played then, keep the travel shorter and be a "marquee" game that would draw a good audience.

    The other alternative is to have the Pac-12 host team play these schedules against OOC opponents only. That way Pac teams aren't road-weary.

    The Rocky Mountain Showdown or the "revenge" game with Cal would be our only options in this scenario.

    This is the price we'll have to pay for having Larry Scott running the conference. He's going to take every opportunity he can to market the conference and get it's teams on television to the widest audience possible. I'm not complaining, just pointing out that there will be some side effects that come with having an uber-marketer at the helm.

    Isn't the violent crime rate a lot higher in Texas than it is in that northeast liberal cesspool where they don't have the balls to execute the mentally challenged?

    Don't mess with Texas! :lol:
