PAC-12’s Larry Scott submits Orwell Prize application

Ken Goe has his entry in the Oregonian:

“The health and safety of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports continues to be our No. 1 priority,” Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement released by the conference. “Our decisions have and will be guided by science and data, and based upon the trends and indicators over the past days, it has become clear that we need to provide ourselves with maximum flexibility to schedule, and to delay any movement to the next phase of return-to-play activities.”

    #defundthePRflacks? They may be all that can save the U of O if football collapses. Who wants to go to a school that doesn’t have a nationally competitive football squad? Maybe the flacks can make popular television personalities of economics professors.

      Anonimo, if you choose a college/university based on its “nationally competitive” sport (any sport) … you really should reconsider your life priorities.

      I’m sure all of our foreign students who subsidize the tuition of in-state students come here for American football. As for out-of-state students, Colorado and Oregon had very similar increases in out-of-state enrollment during the period when the Ducks were one of the hottest brands and the Buffs spent several years in the cellar. I’m sure football has actual benefits for branding and enrollment and recognition, but for many students it is a minor factor.
