Just saw your message Robert, sorry for the late reply. You're right, and the point of the article was not a prediction of the future so much as looking at ways the Pac-12 could catch up. But that isn't likely to happen anytime soon, although I do believe with the league strength at head coach there's a chance to make some real noise in the coming years.
That's a good point. That QB battle is really tough to call at this point, it'll be interesting to see how they do in the spring and fall.
Thanks for the feedback. It will be tough to replace the losses, especially at LB. Stanford and Oregon will lose a lot too, so it'll certainly be interesting.
Should be a fun season out west.
