    [​IMG]The bowl season starts tomorrow. Sweet!Follow the Pac-12 blog on Twitter. Please.J.McAndrew, San Jose, Calif., writes: From your perspective Mr. Miller, why would MacIntyre take the job at Colorado and not California. Or to put reversely, why would Cal AD Barbour hire Sonny Dykes and not MacIntyre. Cal was in better position to win immediatley and Colorado is going to be a major building job. Colorado must have had questions about loyalty after firing an Alum with only two seasons to work with.

    Mac should've known he didn't stand a chance. Job at Cal, opposition is a Dykes, person hiring is a female. Game was over before it began.

    Hate to stereotype, but I definitely think the female AD hired based on personality. Mac is a little awkward and until he started talking about real football I was kind of uneasy watching the press conference. As soon as he jumped into his schemes and football philosophy the awkwardness was gone.

    I don't think Sonny is much of a smooth talker either.

    MacIntyre is a Southern dude. The Cal AD probably got pissed when he called her "Sugar" or "Hun".
