Podcast of Champions – Updates from Pac-12 spring games and spring scrimmages

This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods have spring football updates from several schools around the Pac-12 including the spring games for USC and Utah and spring scrimmage updates from Arizona, Colorado, Washington, Washington State, Oregon and Oregon State. While David tends to nod off when the topic of spring football comes up, Ryan dives in to talk about all of the virtual sacks accumulated in the spring, the plethora of quarterback transfers across the conference and each team trying to get more physical on defense.

The guys also talk about Arizona finding its head basketball coach in Tommy Lloyd, the Boise State assistant that will be getting his first chance at being a head coach in Tucson. Speaking of basketball, we field a question about how good Bobby Hurley is at Arizona State and if the Sun Devils need to move on from him to make it to the next level.

And as always they spend time answering every single question listeners manage to send in, including text messages and voicemails!

Pac-12 commissioner search rolls on while UCLA goes from First Four to Final Four

This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are yet again doing the unthinkable, talking Pac-12 basketball! It was a historic run for the Conference of Champions with three teams (Oregon State, USC & UCLA) in the Elite Eight with only the Bruins punching their ticket to the Final Four. After starting the show with the UCLA fight song, David pontificates on how the Bruins could topple mighty Gonzaga and Ryan wants to know if David would rather have UCLA get blown out by Gonzaga or lose a close title game.

The guys also talk about the search for the Pac-12 commissioner (thanks to more great reporting by Jon Wilner), discuss the tanking Pac-12 Network and what the new commissioner will need to do in order to salvage it, give a few updates on spring football from across the conference, host another theoretical Pac-12 mascot tournament battle plus lots of other topics that have nothing to do with conference athletics at all (like why everyone should pay their credit cards off, then we wouldn’t see terrible Capital One commercials with all the A-list celebrities in them during the tournament).

Podcast of Champions – Asinus ad lyram plus is Jayden Daniels the top returning Pac-12 QB?

This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods didn’t know what the theme of the episode should be, so they went back to the subject line of Hythloday’s email from last week, ‘Asinus ad lyram.’ What does it mean? It really doesn’t matter, right? It just sounded cool so that is the direction the guys went this week.

As far as Pac-12 football topics go, the guys get into the new naming rights deal for Washington State’s football field, Alabama inside linebacker Brandon Kaho transferring to UCLA, USC quarterback Matt Fink hanging up his cleats, more offensive attrition for the Washington Huskies and if Jayden Daniels is the top returning quarterback in the conference.

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!
