Podcast of Champions – Pac-12 football week three recap and week four preview plus Herm Edwards fired

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods bounced back significantly last week in their Pac-12 picks against the spread (9-2 for Ryan, 8-3 for Dave), even with their belief that Herm Edwards was somehow going to cover a 3-score spread against a team that featured actual human beings. Speaking of Herm, HE GONE! Arizona State finally pulled the trigger and let Herm go so the guys spend the top part of the show talking about the move, potential candidates and why they are not expecting the same treatment for Colorado’s Karl Dorrell any time soon.

It was also a great weekend for the Pacific Northwest teams with everyone notching a victory including Oregon spanking a top-15 BYU squad and Washington jumping all over the overrated top-15 Michigan State Spartans (and no we don’t think it was a on the downlow interview to join the Big Ten). This was the first time the Pac-12 has recorded two wins over ranked teams on the same Saturday in 9 years! They discuss those games and how the rest of the Conference of Champions fared as they wrap up the majority of the out of conference slate and turn towards conference play.

Speaking of conference play the guys make their picks against the spread for week four with six Pac-12 match-ups, highlighted by undefeated Oregon State hosting No.7 USC and undefeated Washington State hosting No. 15 Oregon. Please note that undefeated UCLA is going to Colorado but we don’t recommend watching that.

As always Dave and Ryan spend the last part of the show answering your voicemails, texts and emails with questions about Pac-12 football plus lots of other topics.

Podcast of Champions – Pac-12 football week two recap and week three preview

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods have been following this conference for years but somehow both are batting just .500 picking the games against the spread.

The Podcast of Champions – Pac-12 football week one recap and week two preview

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are already in midseason form with their picks against the spread (meaning they are just as bad as they were last year). The guys do what they can to make sense of what happened in week one of Pac-12 play, where the conference went 9-3 overall but 0-3 against Power Five competition including blowout losses by Colorado and Oregon and a heartbreaking defeat by defending conference champion Utah.

The guys also take a look ahead to week two and make their picks against the spread including the first conference match-up of the season when USC hits the road to take on Stanford. They also give an update on the POC Survival Pool where the majority of listeners advanced thanks to the Cardinal beating Colgate, but we did lose a couple contestants including one sicko who took Colorado to beat TCU in week one.

Podcast of Champions – Previewing Arizona State, Utah, Oregon, Washington State, Stanford & Cal

In this edition of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back in studio continuing their previews of the six remaining Pac-12 programs with Arizona State, Utah, Oregon, Washington State, Stanford and California. The guys hear from experts from each program’s 247Sports website talking about the strengths and weaknesses of each program heading into the 2022 college football season.

The guys also talk about the newly released media rights deal for the Big Ten that includes Fox, CBS and NBC and what it could possibly mean for the Pac-12. ESPN being left out of the deal should be a good thing for the Conference of Champions, but with the other three major networks involved in the B1G, there are less available options for commissioner George Kliavkoff to explore. Plus the UC Board of Regents weighed in on UCLA leaving Cal behind and the guys talk about what was said at that meeting (not that either of them went) and if they feel there is a chance the Bruins get forced to stay (walking away from a half a billion dollar Big Ten deal is VERY unlikely).

They also talk about the new AP Poll that has Utah at No. 7, Oregon and No. 11 and USC and No. 14., the Athletic’s look at the past 10 years of the Pac-12 Network plus David thinks about who his POC cohost would be if UCLA stays in the Pac-12 and USC (and Ryan) leave for the Big Ten.

Podcast of Champions – Previewing the 2022 Pac-12 college football season for Arizona, Colorado, Oregon State, Washington, USC and UCLA

In this edition of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back in studio (after a week off) giving a quick recap of what they saw at Pac-12 Media Day with commissioner George Kliavkoff addressing the state of the conference and declaring war on the Big 12. They also start their college football 2022 season previews for half of the conference with reporters from Arizona, Colorado, Oregon State and Washington checking in along with previews from USC and UCLA from Ryan and Dave.

The guys also talk about the latest news on the television market front with ESPN dropping out of the Big Ten’s next media rights deal. Fox continues to be a major player for the B1G but now CBS and NBC will be involved showing conference games as well. This will have an impact on the Pac-12’s media rights negotiations, but no one knows how much. On one hand ESPN now needs more inventory which could be good for the Conference of Champions, but with CBS and NBC no longer on the table there will likely be less competition for ESPN and less incentive to pay more for the Pac-12’s media rights.

They also talk about the slowdown in conference realignment talk and now both feel what we have with USC and UCLA in the Big Ten and the Pac-12 with 10 schools is likely to be the new norm going forward (until something crazy happens and then it isn’t).

Podcast of Champions – Pac-12 Media Day Preview with all eyes on George Kliavkoff

In this edition of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back previewing what should be an extremely interesting and informative Pac-12 Media Day where we will hear from commissioner George Kliavkoff for the first time since it was announced that USC and UCLA were leaving for the Big Ten in 2024. Last year Kliavkoff was on the job for less than a month when he addressed the media, fielding questions about NIL, conference expansion thanks to Texas and Oklahoma announced they would join the SEC and why Washington State head coach Nick Rolovich wouldn’t be attending Media Day in person. We thought 2021 was a crazy first year for the commissioner, but but with two of the biggest brands leaving the conference 2022 says, ‘hold my beer.’

The guys also talk about what they expect to hear about the LA schools bolting, the negotiations for the new Pac-12 television contract, what’s next for conference expansion and what sort of reaction they expect from coaches and players that aren’t leaving the conference (as of now).

Podcast of Champions – Cooling off period for conference realignment

In this edition of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back talking about how things have seemingly settled down on the conference realignment front, two weeks after both USC and UCLA announced they would be leaving the Pac-12 and joining the Big Ten. The guys talk about some of the options out there for the next steps including the Pac-12 merging with another conference, the Pac-12 making a loose alliance with another conference, the Pac-12 raiding another conference, the Pac-12 getting raided by another conference or the Pac-12 standing pat with 10 teams. There could be some big news dropping any moment, but more than likely the college football landscape will stay this way for a while until something else big happens and we start all over again.

The guys also discuss yet another terrible tragedy for the conference with Oregon tight end Spencer Webb passing away after a cliff diving accident. He was 22 years old.

They also talk about which Pac-12 programs have had the most 1,000,000+ viewers for their football games recently (with some surprises for sure), the University of California Board of Regents taking notice of the Bruins leaving California behind, the Big 12 media days kicking off with talk of expansion plus how conferences and television networks view football brand vs. television markets.
