Pac-12 Playhouse, 8/31: Wake me up when September ends

September brings with it what should have been a full slate of college, Pac-12 football

The calendar is about to strike September. The fall air will soon be creeping in.

What should have been weekends full of college football action — especially top-notch Pac-12 football action — will be unlike any other weekends in our lifetimes. While the Pac-12, Big Ten, MAC and Mountain West have postponed their seasons until the spring, hopefully, the rest of the country’s football teams will be in action, in one way or another.

We got our first taste of college football action on Saturday night when Central Arkansas defeated Austin Peay in the FCS Kickoff.

And that just got me thinking — what could’ve been. No need to dwell on the past, but at this time, it’s completely appropriate to think about what could have been.

What could’ve been Penei Sewell’s invite to New York for the Heisman Trophy season.

What could’ve been Clay Helton and the USC Trojans taking back the west, finally.

What could’ve been potentially the final season for Chip Kelly at UCLA.

What could’ve been the sophomore sensational season for Grant Gunnell, Jayden Daniels.

What could’ve been for Davis Mills at Stanford.

What could’ve been for the fabulous cornerbacks at Oregon State that we watched grow up on the latest season of Last Chance U.

What could’ve been for new head coaches in Nick Rolovich and Karl Dorrell.

So. Many. What. Could. Have. Beens.

Oh well, maybe in the spring we can reassess those.

Until then — onto the Pac-12 news from around the block.
