The Pac-12 is staying put, and that means there's a whole lot of confusion going on. Naturally, conversation must be had, so Goodman and Parrish hopped on the podcast with me today. Topics addressed:
- Why did the Pac-12 do this?
- What does it mean for Texas, and can the Big 12 stay at just nine teams? Because it'd be stupid to stay at nine teams.
- Are we really just prolonging the inevitable re: Big 12? No way this league exists by 2017, right?
- How about the Big East deciding to completely abandon football. It should probably happen. When will the presidents and officials in that conference look in the mirror and accept that? Create a super hoop league by inviting Xavier, Butler, Richmond, Dayton, etc.
- Does Jim Boeheim and/or Jim Calhoun ever coach a game in the ACC? We ask because, as it stands now, the Big East is going to hold Pitt and Syracuse in the league until 2014. Supposedly.
- And while having these great schools all in one league looks nice, consider the ages of K, Roy, Boe, Calhoun.
- It's not all alignment talk. Goodman and Parrish touch on Kyle Anderson's commitment to UCLA and why Ben Howland had to go 3,000 miles to get a player. Why's he not recruiting successfully in L.A. right now?
