First thing’s first, Myles Gaskin is starting to turn heads. In fact, it more and more looks like MMFG is slowly but surely becoming RB1 in Miami:

Significant given the Pac-12 would need Oregon (and California) to be on board, although given her past comments, I expect Gov. Kate Brown to support a Pac-12 return so long as it’s well thought-out:
The state of (return to) play in Oregon: “As other conferences return to play in other parts of the country, we are watching closely to see if those conferences can deliver on their promises to keep athletes safe." https://t.co/W7rUEDt0dU— Jon Wilner (@wilnerhotline) September 15, 2020
That sounds... less than ideal:
Do good things, don’t do bad things, and bow down to Washington.
