Pac 12 isn't the same without California
Sat Dec 05, 2020 9:50 am
  • In California, the SIP is coming. If not from the state than from the counties.

    The whole Bay Area (minus san mateo) signed on to what Santa Clara did, so that knocks out Cal.

    LA County and its region is projected to go into March SIP-type regs per the state as of Monday or Tuesday. That knocks out UCLA/USC.

    Santa Clara waited, ironically, until the day after the Cal/Stanford Big Game to announce. Stanford won. Stanford has taken some steps to play its "home" games at other stadiums and practice at Humboldt, but the SIP is coming to far norcal just like everywhere else.

    There was no apple bowl this year.

    This is all such bs. It's a war of attrition and local governments and luck of the draw as to who gets to even get six games now, esp in the Pac 12. Any championship this year is meaningless really.

    You obviously were not paying attention, when they had to manipulate the schedule and delay the start, switch up who everyone played given a week to week scenario it was meaningless from the first practice.

    This is purely training ground for most and for others a chance to at least get on Film for the draft.

    It is a distraction for fans, the Universities are simply trying to keep players and their program viable thru TV moneys. If they can squeak by this season and have convinced the players it's meaningful and set up prospects for the draft etc it is considered a win for the schools. Lots of the Sports and other aspects have been shut down since they don't get a lot of revenue and create logistics issues due to the virus.

  • Chris, I was paying attention from the start. Pac-12 schools differ widely in their circumstances and how their governments are handling it. It was a farce from the beginning to #letthemplay for an actual competition when in fact, fairly, it's a bunch of exhibition games at this point.

  • How many threads on California's restrictions do we need?

    Chris is right. This pac 12 season was always more of a training camp.

  • Ah, Si, you don't like California threads but as the saying goes "so goes California, so goes the country" lol.

    Stanford won over the Huskies btw. Cal won too over Ducks. Watching to see if the Beavs lose to Utah, because that'll mean that every team above Stanford just dropped one putting Stanford in an advantageous position.

    Apparently there's only one more week of this before the playoffs, and hopefully Stanford is well situated to pull a 49ers move and figure out somewhere out of state to practice since, well, even Humboldt will probably be under the SIP by then.

    Pretty sure I saw somewhere that Stanford will be spending the week in Oregon to prep for their game against Oregon State.

    Are the beavs letting them use the practice field or are they going to a hs or another school up there?

    They're staying in Corvallis, but the article doesn't say if they're sharing facilities with Oregon State.

    It's almost as if they didn't deserve to be there...or that they have a head coach with a .500 career record. Thankfully they locked him up for six years lol.
