    Agree 100%.

    Wow. For someone who understands how to politic, that was exceptionally tone deaf.

    It's time. So much of this would have been so easy. Just move the HQ to Vegas or somewhere else that is cheap. Make big changes in officials and official oversight. Fire the guy who made the replay call in the booth. Easy PR moves that would have won Larry some cred.

    Blaming Larry Scott for the Pac 12's problems is silly. This is like saying we won the Sugar Bowl because of Chris Hill. Blame the coaches.
    One thing I have learned in a long life: that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike -- and yet it is the most precious thing we have.

    The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing, is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.

    Just because he has very little to do with the on-field results doesn't mean that he's doing well at his job.

    To me this looks devastating. How did Woody Dixon keep his job? Read the whole thing.
