Washington has a lot of returning Ayers and a favorable schedule. Peterson finally has a capable QB and the team should be really solid. They will probably go 10-2 in regular season with no one from PAC 12 making playoffs.

What are Houston's academic standards? I don't think they are that tough but I could be wrong. If they're not high enough there is no way the PAC 12 will come calling. The PAC 12 could have already had a stronger program in Boise state but they passed. Makes no sense for PAC 12 to do this outside of the market. I don't buy it. Houston should be happy with any invite to a Power 5 because Tom won't be there forever.

Became a season ticket holder of the Cubs last year after spending 15 years on the wait list. Must say it has been great seeing them win. Hopefully this sticks through the next 5 years. The only unfortunate piece is that I dont get to see them as often as I would like.

Eddie Lacy can barely hold on to his role with Green Bay. Id hardly say he has been a success. He has had one good year, been injured and been way out of shape/overweight. We will see if his work during the offseason will pay off this year.

Soler has a ton of upside and will slide in there. This also gives Baez more opportunities to play whether it is at 3B or LF.

Which island? If Maui, the road to Hana is cool but make sure you stay in Hana because that road is long and windy. On the way to Hana there are two restaurants I'd recommend in the Paia Flatbread Company and Mommas Fish House but I'd go to these separate from your drive because you want to get to Hana by 830am. The latter is really expensive but really f'ing good. All fish is caught right off the coast. Another restaurant to go to is Star Noodle in Lahaina. Places to stay are Wailea, Lahaina and Kaanapali. No matter where you go get some shaved ice. Best in Maui is ululanis. Add a macadamia nut ice cream scoop to it for a special treat. The tide pools north of Kaanapali are really cool and I'd recommend those. Chilling at the beach is also GREAT! Oh and make sure you get Poke from the Supermarket, a Loco mocof from a local spot, and spam musubi. They have a whole foods type market there and it is great for Poke. If you need to get supplies (food, water beers/liquir) upon landing there is a Costco near the airport. Enjoy your trip! You can be as busy or as relaxed as you want.

Man what a match at heavyweight. Great win by Snyder! That was one of the better matches I've watched especially at heavyweight. The last two matches were pretty good.

Throw in Garrick McNeil as well and they are doing very well with the coaching staff. It will be interesting to see how this impacts the area in this recruiting cycle. There is a lot of NFL blood on those sidelines and a good mix of old and young.
