So the PAC 12 thinks they can take on the rest of the country in the other time zones? I totally get that late night ratings stink, but I don't see them pulling audiences away from their local favorites, even if, say, you're talking about ranked USC and Oregon teams facing off when the AAC, ACC, B1G, Big 12 and SEC rivals are playing.

AAC take note...look no farther than the state of Colorado, if you are gong to expand westward

I read an article about this awhile back, and some of the comments were interesting. They showed how clueless people who live on the West Coast are. Many of the fans were complaining that kickoffs are at 7pm PT. They would prefer 5pm, because they said 7pm means you get home from games approaching midnight. Makes it hard to bring kids to games, etc.

Hello! What do they think ALL THE REST OF THE COUNTRY has for night time starts? Around 7PM local time, which means you get home approaching midnight. Why is that ok for the rest of us, but so difficult for West Coast people?

c'mon, ya know the answer...they live in Kallyfornia..home of Hollywoodland, and they are entitled..... they believe that people from all other states, not named New York, are clueless deplorables, who should bow before their every command.....The people in Oregon and Washington, especially on the western side of those states, are just as bad... I will miss not going back to California and Washington for the Golf events each year, but I will use the money that would have been donated to buy another Car
