I'm glad the Dawgs are leaving. Pac-12 is a joke, and has been for years.
Ad's turn down 30 million from ESPN, greed and incompetent league commissioner, they countered with wanting 50 million, ESPN walked.
The NCAA sucks.The Pac sure didn't give a rat's ass about us back in '93. Led by clown master, Bill Walsh (yes, I said that), they, the Pac 10 and the NCAA cost us more than just our legendary coach, they prevented us from becoming a dynasty that historically, just might be mentioned in the same sentences as Alabama, UGA, etc etc..
Yet I find myself upset for the Beav, in particular, a team that has really turned the corner here as of late. Building a brand new stadium in the midst of all this could cut deep. The Coug? Little brother lost me with the flag planting and what pisses me off most about that is that I let it bother me as much as I did.
But Stanford can rot in hell (as a football program) for all I care. How many of you Dawg fans recall Bill Walsh, prior to his first game (and ass whupping) at Husky stadium, stepping onto the tarmac wearing a Groucho mask like demolishing our brand was some big joke to him?
Still angry after all these years, and admittedly no more mature today than I was back then. Oh well. Let's go Dawgs.
Fox is generally a free channel. ESPN is going 100% streaming in the next 18 months meaning it will be a subscription service.The TV money is unsustainable, Networks are losing viewers to streaming who are also struggling due to costs for developing content. The Monster the NCAA has created will feed upon itself here in the not to distant future.
