This morning I did an interview with a Phoenix radio station and eventually one of the topics was Arizona. I admit I get a little triggered by Jedd The Fisch.
He worked for Pete Carroll and seems to want to emulate him. I said today Fisch needs to be “more than salesman.”
He also had a weird comment at Pac-12 media day when asked if USC and UCLA going to the Big Ten changed his approach?
“I hope what it does when parents are making decisions on wanting to watch their children play,
they don’t have to get on a plane and fly to Newark, fly to Iowa, fly to Ann Arbor. They get to get in a car, drive five and a half hours, and next thing you know they’re at Arizona.
“They can be able to watch their sons play right here on the West Coast, right in prime time television.
We’re hopeful that that’s going to be a huge benefit for us moving forward.”
Does Fisch think USC and UCLA will not play home games?
Does he think parents will prevent their sons from playing at USC because they have games at Ohio State or Michigan instead of Arizona and Arizona State?
I know Fisch is a salesman but what happens if Arizona moves to the Big 12? Those above comments will come back to bite him. Southern California recruiting is his life blood but what would he tell parents about road trips to Iowa State and Kansas State?
- The Pac-12 and Big 12 have a four-game basketball shooutout scheduled for Dec. 18 at American Airlines Center in Dallas.
Here is the schedule:
Game 1 – Stanford vs. Texas (men) – ESPN, 12:00 p.m. CT
Game 2 – USC vs. Texas (women) – ESPN2, approx. 2:30 p.m. CT
Game 3 – Arizona vs. Baylor (women) – ESPN2, 6:30 p.m. CT
Game 4 – Washington State vs. Baylor (men) – ESPN/ESPN2, approx. 9 p.m. CT
So why is it that Andy Enfield seems to avoid these things? Didn’t want to play Texas or Baylor? Of course not.
