    He's said to me several times he can't understand why the B1G didn't grab Stanford instead of UCLA.
    Someone probably ran the economics.

      Ha. That is just about the only way that you could possibly twist that summary.

      To answer your question, I would rather catch a 900-lb bluefin tuna than a few steelheads.

        I agree that USC/Stanford would have been the smarter move.

        And dang it, I don't live in Alpine! I live in Provo. I don't make welder money.

          What fish could I catch that would weight 1,984 pounds?

            Yes, this is pretty much a given. NBC isn’t going to give ND more money on their new contract. In fact, people in the know are speculating that ND will be getting less. Stanford is the natural partner to come with them. Rivals and lots of ND fans in the Bay Area.

            When the music stops Cal and Utah could be left without chairs. The smart thing for Utah to do sooner rather than later is start negotiating Whitt’s exit. They are not going to be able to afford him and there will be a lot of other schools that will. These BYU trained coaches get are worth the money.

              It’s pretty simple… why would the B1G have to choose when they know you are going to have both? Besides USC and UCLA are currently in a B1G island by themselves and may be there for a few years until ND figures out NBC is not giving them more money and they make their move to the B1G with Stanford, Oregon, and UW. Until then USC needs a travel partner and UCLA is prefect.

                I wonder who this mystery person could be. I also wonder if that same person often referred to UCLA as fUCLA. I wonder who objective this person, as a life-long USC fan, could be regarding UCLA's value to the Big 10.
                Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.
