Podcast of Champions – Recapping National Signing Day 2021 for the Pac-12

In this episode of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods give their analysis on how the Pac-12 faired out on the recruiting trail, recapping the 2021 National Signing Day for all of the conference programs. The Pac-12 produced two top-10 classes with Oregon coming in at No. 6 and USC at No. 8 in the 247Sports Composite Team Rankings. But the rest of the conference failed to crack the top-25 and many programs could be looking to the NCAA Transfer Portal to fill additional roster needs.

The guys also talk about some of the assistant coaching hires across the conference, rank the best Pac-12 coaches of all-time, read an interesting poem that perfectly captures Stanford’s 4-2 season (and makes fun of our prediction of the Cardinal’s 2020 demise) and lots more!

Podcast of Champions – Larry Scott fired as Pac-12 Commissioner

In this episode of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods talk about a day that was a long time coming, the firing of Larry Scott as Pac-12 commissioner. Champagne Larry was the highest paid commissioner in college football and was also the worst performing, from his failed Pac-12 Networks to officiating controversy to his lavish San Francisco offices that cost over $7 million a year in rent alone.

The guys talk about those and several other shortcomings for Scott, where the conference certainly needs to do better, the role the power programs have in turning things around and what direction they would like to see the Pac-12 CEO group go in picking Larry’s replacement.
