    wow - so its safe for BYU to play Bama but we cannot. I would tell the PAC 12 to stick it on this one and begin to assert some sovereignty

    Just another step into mediocrity for USC. This time the Conference of Avoidance can be blamed.

    It's also somehow dangerous for BYU to play Utah, an hour away, as the Pac 12 deems OOC games as a crisis to be avoided.

    I think the PAC 12’s view is that the G5 programs have less financial resources to do Covid testing, which makes them riskier games to play.

    My personal view is that the PAC 12 wants to keep the money in the Conference, as Covid is really putting a dent in their member’s wallets.

    I don't think it has anything to do with that. You need to read up on "the bubble" like in the nfl and elsewhere.
    By playing conference games only you have only nine other schools to worry about. If you played, for example BYU mid season you would have no control over what protocol was used with all of the opponents of BYU "before" then

    BYU was Utah’s opening game.

    It’s really all about keeping the $$$ in the Conference during this Covid year.

    It is really about who can yell "REALLY" the loudest and longest about REALLY.
    I attempted to edify you. Henceforth I will not.
