      Was it internal or did the player want out?

      You are right about Bill.  Wish he’d shut it and let the boys talk. . .  He doesn’t seem to know when to talk and when not to talk. We live for the comments from the players.

      It was due to Cam’s injury. . .  The team wanted him as team captain for a reason and I am sure the coaching staff knew Cam was the man.  He was not fully recovered from his surgery/injury, so they protected him.  Brewer was the insurance policy.   You can see it in the throws he made early, especially against SDSU. He only threw short passes. As the season progressed Cam made better deep ball throws as he became stronger.  In interviews this year he said he was only at aobut 80% last season. I am sure the coaching staff was protecting Cam as long as they could by not playing him earlier and limiting the long ball.  When Brewer couldn’t deal with the blitz they had to make a change. Not to mention the leadership or lack thereof.   Interestingly, BYU never blitzes but they did crazy in the 2021 game.

      This year will be different, we’ll see better accuracy and deeper throws.  Cam is the man!

      Here’s the deal with Rising.  He would have made a huge difference had he played in the BYU game. I can say we would have won but I can say with some authority it would have been different.  It is not about his skillset as a QB, it’s is leadership, he has the “it” factor.  When you find a player with “it” you win!  Look at the San Diego St. game and the rest of the season for reference.  

      My personal opinion is the coaches knew from the begining he was “it”. I think they were trying to protect Cam’s shoulder.  Rotator cuff surgery is very tough at best and I am surprised he could even throw by the time fall camp opened.  If you look at his throw motion compared to the beginning of the season you can see a difference. His surgery was practically a shoulder rebuild. The coaches had no choice but to protect him as long a possible.  It so happened Brewer couldn’t do the job and the team had NO confidence in him.  The demeanor of the entire team changed when Cam was inserted in the SDSU game.  Can’t wait to see him play this year with a stronger shoulder and without reservations.

      It is Pacific Coast sports apathy.  The interest in all sports around the west coast has substaintially declined.  Younger types are just not in to sports let alone attending games.  The only school with a decent following is USC.

      I don’t understand why a conference would consider Pacific Coast schools for expansion. I know they think they’re getting eyeballs but attendance and viewership has faultered.    Even UW is declining. . .

      This is interesting. . .  I saw podcast a couple of weeks ago by a prognosticator who said the BiG 10 commissionor held a news conference stating the BiG would like to obtain the pacific west television market, they have So. Cal.

      The BiG only needs Cal or Stanford to obtain the market (kind of like Utah, TDS).  The host of the podcast might be right. 

      Here’s the interesting part of what he the prognosticator said everyone missed;  the commish also said they want the markets in west and mountain west time zones.  The guy talking said if this is true, the easiest and best choice is Utah over Colorado.

      The information today confirms they are not done yet and who knows, perhaps the Utes are in consideration.
