If the almost endless bowl of buffet games we're soon to enjoy is Prince, then conference championship weekend is The Time. Sure, they won't win Apollonia's heart, but they're still gonna do the damn thing. Is this all a flimsy excuse to post this picture of what is quite possibly the greatest cover art of all time? It certainly is! Please note that Charlie Strong is not a member of The Time, which seems like a real shame in retrospect.
This is your morning thread. It's early, so please try to steer clear of Gus Johnson, who is still desperately trying to convince you that UCLA is still in this game against Oregon. MALIBU RICKY NEVER SAYS DIE.
