Head West, Ralphie, Head West

It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you
without a strong rhyme to step to...

--Credit has to be given to one Mike Bohn for this historic move. Just when CU fans were starting to fret, Bohn was working behind the scenes and getting things moving. He was proactive, (no, he and Diddy don't use Proactiv to clear up their mugs) and aggressive, rather than waiting on the pieces to fall.

--CU Prez Bruce Benson should shut the f*ck up in all of this. The man was no where to be seen when Dan Hawkins was not fired, although he was the driving force behind retaining the miserable coach. Now he's front and center tooting his own horn when it was Bohn (the man he overruled in the Hawk situation) that should be getting all the accolades.

--I will not miss Ames, Iowa. It is a dingy little hole in the wall town where the Old Chicago held the most excitement. Plus their unis look like Ronald McDonald.

--Lots of talk about baseball being added since the Pac 10 is a baseball powerhouse. If the new cash windfall can parlay that into a baseball and softball team, that has to be examined. However, I have always said if you add baseball, the City of Boulder and the Colorado Rockies need to be involved. Find a way to build a small, quaint-yet-funky baseball stadium in downtown Boulder. The Rockies need to be involved to get their rookie league team there. CU baseball through the spring and the Rox minor league starts there in late June.

--The football program has two years to turn this thing around. They cannot go into the Pac 10 as a doormat. If that means canning Hawk this year even if he has a winning year (which is unlikely) then it has to be done. This news is tremendous, but the buzz will quickly be over when we see the product on the field this fall. Nice, I just put "buzz", and "fall" together; that usually describes football Saturdays.

--If the remaining Big 12 schools come to the Pac 10, everyone assumes CU will play them once a year, plus the Arizona schools, then only two games versus the Cali/Oregon/Washington schools., with only one game versus that group. That could mean all this excitement about trips to Seattle/LA/Bay Area could only be one per year and that trip could be Pullman or Corvallis. Yet, Mike Bohn has said he can't comment on the scheduling. CU and the other Big 12ers might have some sort of cross-divisional trips in the works and more trips to the coast. Stay tuned. You know how those folks in Lubbock love their Bay Area sushi.

--Eugene, this is Boulder. I hear you both have a common interest in hackey sack, Patchouli oil, white guys with dreads, craft beer, a love for the outdoors, and weed. Yeah, I knew the two of you would hit it off.

--The whole Baylor PR campaign was stereotypical Texas arrogance. Seriously, Baylor? I mean what are we talking about here? Baylor? You know that loud mouth Texan in The Simpsons? That was Baylor this past week.

--I'll miss Lawrence, Kansas. Definitely a SG Crew favorite and a eight hour road trip worth the drive. An under rated midwest college town that doesn't feel like a midwest shithole (read: Ames.) I will not miss the Coors Events Center being 2/3 full of KU hoops fans. A tough trade, but I'll take it.

--This will be the last and few times in my life that I've said good for Nebraska. They were the ones 15 years ago who warned of a coming Texas-centric league. They'll fit in well with the Big 10 honks and the other schools will learn to loathe them quickly.

I'm excited, I'd be more excited if the Pac 10 just adds Utah and tells the rest of the Big 12 to fuck off. But they won't.

And they really need to add baseball, CU is really missing out on local 2 sport talent without it.

Id really like to see lacrosse added. The talent is here too. However, no Pac 10 Lax league and I think we have to add conference sports first. I think it would draw well too.

From what I've heard through the Colorado high school lacrosse grapevine, CU, along with some other lacrosse programs in the area, is considering adding mens lacrosse as a D-II varsity sport. This could certainly be worked into a PAC-10 wide upgrade and would be a nice westward extension of varsity lacrosse.

Also, how awesome will it be so see Ralphie charging around the Rose Bowl?
