The Pac-12 should take a page out of USC and UCLA's book and stop scheduling FCS opponents. It's not a win-win situation for anybody. Cal is 2-0, but no one cares because they demolished Sacramento State. On the other hand, Washington gave up 52 points to a directional school. At the very least, let's stop scheduling Eastern Washington.

  • Here is the Utah football team getting insanely excited over... a white helmet? That's what they're yelling about? It's cool, I guess, but they just slapped a Utah decal on a white helmet instead of a red one.
