The Best Colleges for Football Tailgating

From ThePostGame.com, USC comes in at No. 2 on the list for best colleges for football tailgating. It is the only Pac-12 school to make the cut.

Pac-12 Network opens by trolling UCLA

13

In the first 2 days of the network, "South Champion" UCLA will be shown getting humiliated in Autzen 6 times (SIX!). That is 12 times total in Los Angeles between the national network and the LA network. Here are the other schedules (most are nearly identical) National Arizona Bay Area Mountain Oregon Washington

Per ESPN Report: Pac-12/Big 10 Scheduling Deal is Off (for now)

13

"ESPN.com has learned that the Pac-12 approached the Big Ten in March and said several of its members had reservations about a mandatory scheduling agreement. The main problem: the Pac-12 currently plays nine league games per season, while the Big Ten plays only eight." While this may look bad on the outside, there is a small little nugget that appears at the end which should brighten the day just a little bit. "With the Pac-12 agreement dead, the Big Ten will consider increasing its conference games per year from eight to nine, ESPN.com has learned. The league announced a move to nine league games in August but decided to remain at eight after the Pac-12 agreement surfaced."

12

Nneka Ogwumike of Stanford picked up her 2nd Player of the Year award in the past 3 years (former Stanford teammate Jeannette Pohlen was awarded last year), her sister Chiney Ogwumike picked up Defensive Player of the Year, and their coach Tara VanDerveer was named Coach of the Year for the 12th time overall and 2nd year in a row. University of Washington freshman Jazmine Davis broke up the Stanford monopoly on awards with her Freshman of the Year honors. Also notable is USC senior Briana Gilbreath's 4th All-Conference Team honor, the only player in the class of 2012 to have done so. For full All-Conference Teams, follow the link.

Pac-12 Network Update

Updated information on the Pac-12 Network

A Stray Thought Occurs:

The Big Ten and the Pac-12 have agreed to a league-wide non-conference scheduling arrangement, effective as of 2017. In addition to cementing the eight-game conference schedule (SEC, take note), doesn't this basically ensure that the tentatively-set 2020 and 2021 meetings between Georgia and Ohio State are virtually assured of not happening? Go 'Dawgs!

UCLA has the second largest college football fan-base among Pac-12 schools

1

"Only U.S.C. and U.C.L.A. have at least 1 million decided fans each [in Pac-12]" yet UCLA very poor performance on the field and struggle to fill up our stadium. The athletic dept. sits on a pile of cash yet they don't know how to milk the cows. I have only three words for them: shame on you! Put on a good AD and a good football coach right now!

NYT: Pitt and Syracuse Talking to ACC About Joining

2

The New York Times is reporting that Pitt and Syracuse "are engaged in talks about joining the Atlantic Coast Conference". Syracuse, if you remember, was on the wish list the last time the ACC expanded, though it obviously didn't end up making it in. The conference and the two schools issued standard no comments. No other information is out there, so it's unknown whether the ACC is looking to be a 14-team league like the SEC (A&M plus one) and Pac-12 (plus the Oklahoma schools) are supposedly on the way to becoming or if this is some sort of preliminary stage for accepting Texas and Texas Tech later. There also is the possibility the conference is worried about losing one or more schools to the SEC, but again, no other information is out there yet. UPDATE CBS's Brett McMurphy is reporting that a high ranking ACC official told him that Pitt and Syracuse have officially submitted applications to join the league. Also, he was told the conference's presidents unanimously agreed to raise the league's exit fee to $20 million at a meeting in Greensboro, NC last week.
