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.

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.
