Larry Scott makes his move.

The Pac-12 is back in, baby.

The Pac-12 will play a seven-game conference football season beginning Nov. 6, the league announced Thursday.

The decision, voted on by the Pac-12’s CEO group on Thursday, represents an official reversal after the conference announced in early August it would postpone all sports until at least Jan. 1, citing health concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic.

Would the CFP accept a team that only played seven games?  Well, let’s put it this way:  they haven’t said they wouldn’t.  Besides, Larry’s got his eyes on the real prize.

Even if the Pac-12 doesn’t have a team worthy of inclusion in the four-team field, the eligibility component is important so it can be in position to collect the sizable payout. Last season, there was a $66 million base payout to each of the Power 5 conferences.

It’s always a relief when medical science aligns with profit.

    Oh, but there is more!

    The City of Boulder has banned all gatherings of 18-22 year olds, and it specifically mentions no college sports. How is CU going to get ready for the season?

    7 games? The PAC12 winner will most likely be 6-0. Couple that with a 7-0 Big10 champ and you’ll have a playoff shit show.

  8. I said back when the Big-10 and Pac-12 made their original decisions that they were being stupid. Apparently they agree with me.
