Pac-12 Fail of the Year; Oregon vs Stanford not in prime time


Oregon vs Stanford is exactly what we thought it would be, ever since the Cardinal upset their new rival national title contenders from the North last season in Eugene. A match up of top 5 programs gunning for not just a conference title, but something bigger, something much bigger. A chance perhaps to dethrone the mighty SEC at the end of the season, with what many presume to be an Alabama team vying for a 3-peat.

Some games are not only made for prime time, they demand it. This is one of those games.

Heck, the No. 10 Oklahoma Sooners play the No. 6 Baylor Bears… that’s right, BAYLOR… in the Thursday prime time slot! This game couldn’t even get the best spot for a day when only two other college football games are on the docket, only one of which has significance.

I understand the logistics of Texas being an hour ahead of California or whatever, but you can still understand the point… this is most definitely the Pac-12′s biggest blunder this season.
