Pac-12 Media Days, a target-rich environment.
- The Pac-12 announced yesterday that the 2020 and 2021 host site for the Pac-12 Championship Game will be located in Las Vegas. Gambling, for the win!
- Mike Gundy: “When asked how he would coach his son, Gunnar, if the situation arose: “I told him, if you come to Oklahoma State, I’ll coach you like I do everybody else… If you’re the best player, you’ll play. If not, you won’t play — even though I’m sleeping with your mom.” (h/t Ben)
- “A four-month external review of the Pac-12’s officiating program determined it is “predominantly consistent with best practices in the industry” and does not need a major overhaul.” Of course it doesn’t, bless their hearts.
- Secondary market ticket prices for Georgia-Notre Dame are going through the roof.
- For what it’s worth, Pro Football Focus looks at two Georgia transfer quarterbacks’ futures and notes that Jacob Eason has a better surrounding cast than does Justin Fields.
- Herbie describes Jake Fromm as “arguably the best leader in the country”.
- David Shaw says the move to an eight-team CFP field is inevitable because, in part: “If we can go from 64 to 65 to 68 (in the NCAA basketball tournament), we can go from four to eight. Don’t talk about time, we can make it work.” By that reasoning, there’s no reason to stop at eight, is there?
