Quick check on Larry Scott:
Because that's what he did. Yes, don't get me wrong, safety is the number 1 priority. But when you're the only major conference to randomly decide to go ahead and push back the start date of the season to January 1, you're an idiot. Then again, it's Larry Scott. Raise your hand if you knew how to find the Pac-12 Network. I'm guessing your hand isn't raised. That's the type of commissioner Larry Scott is.
The Pac-12 is open to reconsidering if the start date is closer to Jan. 1 for everyone else. The latest start date thrown out there right now is December 4. How it should actually read though is the Pac-12 is open to reconsidering if they realize they are about to lose out on money and get fucked with the NCAA Tournament bids. Why lie? It's a money game. The Pac-12 is one of the 6 major conferences in college hoops, even though they haven't won a title since 1997. Imagine being the only one not to go ahead with the season like everyone else.
So yeah I hope they bully the Pac-12 into playing.
