    There's also a debate tonight among the remaining contenders for the Democratic nomination.

    Somebody at the DNC should be fired over this, scheduling a debate on the night of the College Football Championship.

    I have no idea. He's survived so far with all of the scandal talk. Last several years have been mediocre. They could certainly do worse, but they aren't a program on the rise, that's for sure.

    I'd argue that their ratio of TALENT/RESULTS has been the worst in the nation the last 5 years. Isn't that a pretty serious indictment of the coaching?

    They've won an NCAA game in just one season in that time. They've gotten upset by far worse (and much higher seeded teams) repeatedly. Last year missed the tourney completely.

    All while holding a roster of 5* recruits, future NBA guys, and all americans.

    '16 - As a 6 seed, lost in the first round of the NCAA tourney to an 11 seed. At least they won 1 game in the Pac12 tourney.
    '17 - Earned a 2 seed to the dance. Beat a #15 and #7 seed, lost to an #11 seed.
    '18 - Lost first round tourney game to a 13 seed as a 4 seed despite future 1st overall pick (Ayton) and NBA guys Trier and Alkins
    '19 - Did not make NCAA Tourney. Lost first game of Pac12 Tourney
    '20 - W/ a team of 3 first-round draft picks and some 5* upperclassmen, they are 7th in the Pac12. No good wins. Best wins are @ home VS ASU or Illinois.

    Sean Miller has consistently underperformed with the talent that he gets of late. I feel like they need to get someone else in there. The AD and the fan base should be close to the end of the rope with him. They can’t even justify keeping him because of his results, like some could say about maybe Coach K or Bill Self. Scandal aside, I’m not a hater and generally root for them to do well because my good friend is fan, I respected/liked them under Lute, and they are a local team for me now.

    Jazz, would your friend in Moraga coach for UofA?

    I'm hoping it's an Offensive shootout. Hot Dogs w/ a Sam Smith's Winter Welcome Ale for dinner. Hoping the storm doesn't knock out the power before the game's over.

    And Tex, the Des Moines debate is tomorrow.

    Alford at UCLA was significantly worse than Miller in the talent/results ratio, but UCLA moved on. Surely there must be a few others that were worse? Romar wasn't at UW for the entirety of that time frame but he was really bad too (why are all of these coaches from the Pac 12?!). If not for Frank Kaminsky, Sean Miller would have 2 Final 4's and the narrative about him would be a bit kinder.

    The Dr. Pepper "Big Fan" Commercial series is supposed to conclude tonight, Reborn. There will probably be some advertisements for new movies too.

    The Super Bowl typically has a huge line-up of new ads.

    Maybe. Randy’s from PHX and his dad was a coaching legend in the state. But he won’t win the press conference.

    I keep expecting a Pac12 team to make him an offer he can’t refuse. It’d be interesting to see how a guy who does so much with so little can do with a different recruiting pond to fish in. I thought ASU would be a better fit because it would be more under the radar, but my hope was crushed when they hired Christian Laettner’s less likable ex-teammate.

    It's the SDSU game for me. I don't mind streaming a CBB game (I have a Chromecast dongle), but it's always easier when the game is on an actual channel. It will be Eric Rothman and Richie Schueler on the call.

    I agree, Winston is over-hyped. With that embarrassing loss to Purdue, Michigan State's pre-season scrimmage loss to our Zags is also starting to lose whatever lustre it had to begin with, but it "floated our boat" initially here "on the boards", as I recall.

    SDSU game for me as well.

    As an aside, what is a Chromecast dongle? And is it legal to "google a dongle"? Guess I'll find out!

    Google Chromecast is a gizmo (only $35) that hooks up to the back of a smart TV and will mirror whatever video is playing on your laptop / tablet / smartphone. It comes in handy when you want to watch a game on your TV that is not on ESPN / FS1 / CBSSN / whatever.
