    Posted for SeaTac regarding advantageous weather that allowed UW/WSU/UA/ASU to have dramatic turn arounds from losing seasons to 8+ wins the following year.

    Tell that to the teams that had to play AZ and ASU with their 100+ degree weather for most games. Or those that play have to play in the rain most of the time against UW and WSU.

    4 out of 6 home games played on days with a high temp. of 83.3 or lower, and 6 out of 6 played on a day when the average temp. was 79.5 or lower.

    I have no doubt that over the last 20 years you have been attending games at UW that you have sat in the rain many times. But if the average number of times it rains during a Washington game during those twenty years is more than 1 or 2 times per season, I will eat my shoe. It does not rain during "most" of UW's & WSU's games. And many of the times it does rain, it's likely a sprinkle or a quick shower that has virtually no effect on the game.

    Same goes for the Arizona schools regarding 100 degree temperatures. They clearly play in some heat, but it isn't 100+ degrees for "most" of their games. Between the two of them there were only 2 games that MIGHT have been played in 100+ heat, and 3 more that MIGHT have been played in 90+ heat. I say MIGHT because we don't know what the temp. at kickoff was, only the high for the day. And I seriously doubt those schools make a habit of kicking off in the high heat of the day.

    My colleagues don't either but, of course, the candidate is never told the real reason why.

    Old skool.

    I used to be on board with the A, B, C non-conference scheduling approach. One very good team (likely loss), one mediocre team (likely win), and one tune up game against a lower division team.

    That was before I fully realized how difficult conference play is. Now, I think we should take a B-B-B approach. I'd be totally fine with a non-conference schedule of Colorado State, San Jose State, and UTEP...or something along those lines. Every now and then schedule a Michigan or a Oklahoma, but certainly not every year.

    IMO, we can't start conference play already having a loss on our record. We need three wins. We also need decent competition which is why I hope we never schedule lower division teams again. Beating Weber St by 70 does nothing to help our development.

    We play in the 2nd most difficult conference in college football. We will have PLENTY of strength of schedule baked in every single year. We have no need to make things harder with our non-conference slate. That's my $.02.

    • On the internet, there are people called "Trolls" -- not because they look like monsters -- but because they troll around different message boards, throwing out little baited hooks hoping to get a bite from some eager fish. And like any fisherman, the Trolls won't stay very long if no one bites
