Mega-mailbag Podcast of Champions

Apparently our POC listeners are desperate for the return of college football season. Despite the calendar reading May, we received a record number of questions this week, ranging from ranking coaches to Pac-12 slogan suggestions to our soccer takes.

We loved this Pac-12 slogan suggestion from Shane: “Pac-12: The Waterpolo of conferences: Athletically super impressive, but hardly anybody sees any of the action, and we struggle to keep our heads above water while getting pummeled in the areas that matter most.”

RESULTS: All-Century Pac-12 Team Draft

A few weeks ago Footahmehkee emailed us asking that we draft an All-Century Pac-12 football team. Today, we followed through on that request. Both Dave and Ryan would have 24 picks, one offensive and one defensive player from each team in the Pac-12. Dave got the first pick, then picks went two at a time until the last pick.

We determined that each would have to field an actual “team”, meaning you couldn’t pick 6 quarterbacks and no offensive linemen.

We talked about our strategy in our latest Podcast of Champions episode. Listen to the show, check out or picks below and let us know who you think picked the better team. Email us pac12podcast@gmail.com or call/text us at (424) 532-0678 and tell us who won!
