The Pac-12 commissioner search: Scott’s legacy, the ideal model and names of potential candidates

The Pac-12 waited 10 hours, then made news of its own on Tuesday. News that was both unexpected and easily foreseen.

He didn’t have the votes. It was time for a change, and ever...

The blame lies with a president who either forgot — or didn't care enough — to finish off the country's vaccination plan, setting the US on the back foot. There are promising signs that this vaccine drive ...
