The optics make it seem like Pac 12 leadership, including ADs/Presidents, have been having zero discussions with state leadership, have been formulating zero plans and have been 100% reactive.

California is only a bigger problem because, like Oregon, today seems to be the first conversations Pac 12 leadership has really had with state leadership about this process. Can the 4 CA programs request exemption like the Oregon schools did? Sounds like Newsom is just shrugging and putting the onus back on the Pac 12.
She just approved their request, you really think she would do that with no plan from the schools? They need to submit their written plans but it sounds like they have it together and it is more of a formality based on their conversations

Why not get the ball rolling when you got the deal done? The variance can be effective on whatever day the tests come in or Sept. 30.
You don’t know that they didn’t. Also, have you seen you messed up local governments are right now with covid/social distancing/backlogs/etc.? Two weeks for a formal meeting/call doesn’t sound like a bad response time at all. It takes like 1.5 months to get a call from the dmv to register a vehicle right now.

See my last post. Gavin Newsom's office is in contact with at least USC for a variance, but Newsom's office had to make contact with USC in response to the letter their players wrote........not the other way around.

Until I see proof to the contrary (given the Oregon Health Authority said they had not heard from UO/OSU until this week and after the tweet I'm referring to), I'm working under the assumption that the schools have not been in contact with the relevant health authorities until this week, as I think the last thing politicians like Newsom and Brown want is a spat over something like sports RN.

You have no idea what is going on though. First of all the Oregon gov. Didn’t say they hadn’t heard from those schools until today, they said they had t received the written documentation from them and they need that to move on.

second of all, there is a lot more to go through in California in terms of local guidelines. Those schools could have been going through those hoops first, or planning for those meetings, etc. also I doubt newsome is sitting around waiting for a call from university presidents about playing football when the state is on fire. I’m sure there will be more information about the process soon.

If that statement is true in the tweet, Larry Scott should be gone by the end of the day. They have not received any details on the rapid testing program nor any detailed plans from the Pac 12. Are you ****ing kidding me? The so called leadership of the Pac has not engaged with the states they have said are blocking the return of football and other sports. The statement in the tweet basically says they have not interacted with the state level officials in OR. Unreal if true and I do not know why it would be false. This follows a pattern of ineptness by Larry Scott and the leadership int he PAC

"Collegiate sports may only proceed in compliance with all the California Department of Public Health Specific Interim Guidance for Collegiate Athletics."

Not at least in the case of the LA schools. Quoting directly from LA county's guidance.

I can't find anything saying this has been in the works prior to this week. Can you? Again-if the schools got in touch a month ago and these requests have been sitting on Brown/Newsom/insert name of public health officer here's desk-your point's valid. I don't believe that's what's going on though.
Why / How could they have done that a month ago? What would they have said then regarding an exemption.

That’s the way gov work. USC served. Newsome returned. What’s “wrong” with that?

I don’t get what you are trying to say

LA County's guidance is basically if you're following the state's guidelines, you're fine. If USC attempted to make contact with them, they would have likely been directed to Newsom's office.

Apparently a little more to it than you want to believe but keep living in fantasy land.

Same with Oregon. The state is burning and there as mass evacuations during a pandemic. They have bigger fish to fry than college football.
