    Presidents can’t act quickly unless it’s a PC matter like SC prof saying a Chinese word that some black students said sounded like an American slur. He got suspended right away. Now they need another week to widdle their thumbs. Jerking the players around. Didn’t SC say no players tested+ for 2nd week. PAC deserves being laughed at by other conferences

    I'm sure these bozos have no idea that this is an existential issue for the conference in terms of athletics. The prior decision to not play already gave the SEC and other conferences moving ahead an advantage. Don't you think Korey Foreman noticed? If the Pac12 uniquely doesn't play or more likely offers so weak-ass, watered down late season schedule, the other conferences will raid our backyard even more so. Maybe make plans to go Ivy League for the California schools. This is bigger than football. it will be used in basketball as well. Why are we so special out West? Is it just because we are morally superior and care more? BS

    I have never been in favor of SC going independent or leaving the PAC-12. I am too much of a traditionalist. However, the way college football has so radically changed over the past few years, tradition is the last thing anyone thinks about anymore. Maybe I should get on board. Now these idiot presidents and of course the lead idiot Larry Scott, can't make a decision or be bothered to clear their fundraising schedules to make such an important decision NOW. Then again, maybe it's simply not important to them anymore. That's why I'd be OK with SC leaving.

    I would have to believe that it's the CEOs of Cal and Stanford, since they are not approved by their local health departments to practice, that are the holdouts. The Pac-12 CEOs are famous for wanting to make unanimous decisions. It's an all or nothing view in their eyes. Also, nine of the Pac-12 schools are members of the AAU, so they are definitely prone to over analyzing things.

    Lots of talk from reporters this morning that several Pac-12 schools are ready to play Oct. 31 and several are pushing for later, with UCLA as one of those pushing for a later start.

    Not surprised about UCLA. The UC President is going to "encourage" the UCLA Chancellor to support Cal-Berkeley Chancellor if they want to delay since they can't yet practice.

    Is USC one of those "October 31st" schools?

    If it’s November then don’t even bother

    Just doesn’t work

    Maybe the university president's could hire an consulting firm at 2 million to help them figure it all out? I am sure the firm would report back to them no later than December or January.

    I remember seeing months ago that we would have 15,000-17,000 fans max in attendance. Is that still the plan?

    The Pac12 should get on the ball and approve a tentative season.
    The Pac12 is loosing credibility as a major conference if they don’t act. All the major conferences are on board except the Pac12.
    And they can always stop if there are problems
    But to not act shows poor leadership.

    Right, but it’s not like that’s new territory for them.

    Agree. Get all the necessary folks together and make the decision in time to allow Pac12 teams a shot at the CFP.

    To simply sit around and watch the clock run out on a meaningful season (if an end-of-October season start could be achieved) would really put the conference on a hole both this year and even potentially for years to come.

    Guessing SpaceX doesn’t have to worry about recruiting Rocket Scientists @ Clemson

    Let’s NOT be like these other idiots rushing to play.

    given USC’s current liabilities, a COVID death tied to football activities could send the university to BK proceedings.

    You mean, these current liabilities? https://wearesc.com/forum/index.php?threads/usc-reports-zero-positive-tests-for-second-week-in-a-row.73271/

    And straight from the mouth of the parents and players: https://wearesc.com/forum/index.php?threads/a-season.73327/#post-1104368

    Get over it already. People are done with this. Normal needs to return, and CFB has the chance to lead the way... and then there's the PAC12...

    No, I mean the financial liabilities due to previous mis-management from the president and BOT.

    Of course the players want to play.

    With students NOT on campus, running student athletic programs is non-sensical.
