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).

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