March/April). When my children were old enough,
it even became a family affair. We would ride our
bikes to the game, sit in the cheap seats on the
sunny side, and keep the kids happy with snacks
until they were old enough to root for the home
team. We continued the tradition of season tickets (but better seats on the shady side) when
there were just the two of us. Then a couple of
years ago, football schedules changed at the last
minute and instead of playing in the afternoon,
the game was played at night. There were more
TBDs on the schedule than actual times. We
stopped getting season tickets but would take in
an afternoon game when they were held.
Of course, Big Game was sacred and we
always ordered tickets way in advance with a
group of friends. Last November, our group met
for a late lunch because Big Game was not being
held at its regular time of 12: 30 p.m. but at 5: 30
p.m. It was a cold and rainy night. And most
members of our group decided not to attend.

So, maybe it should not have come as a surprise when the Stanford-Cal schedule for 2012
revealed that Big Game was moved to October,
smack in the middle of the season. The Stanford-Cal rivalry is a tradition equal to Army vs. Navy,

Harvard vs. Yale. Stanford and Cal both objected
but lost out to a majority of the newly constituted
Pac- 12. Why? Television. Dollars. College football
has become a pawn of television and the so-
called attention, prestige and dollars it brings.
The new schedule means UCLA does not play
Oregon in 2012 and Washington State and Ore-
gon State do not face USC. Why did they ever
expand the Pac- 10 to the Pac- 12 and bring in Utah
and Nevada and split the conference into north
and south? Again, the answer has to be money.
Alas, the sport has become a big business and
tradition and fans are the losers.
