This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back at it discussing the breaking news that Washington State has fired head coach Nick Rolovich and four of his assistant coaches for cause because they failed to follow the state mandate and get vaccinated. They discuss where this Cougars program goes from here and how Rolovich’s conspiracy brain won out over logic and common sense, throwing away his $3 million yearly contract to coach football.
Dave and Ryan also try to make sense of this crazy Pac-12 conference where each week the No. 1 team in our Power(less) Rankings loses its match-up, the latest being Arizona State blowing a 21-7 lead on the road against Utah. The guys talk about that game and the other week 7 contests including the showdown of the century, No. 12 Arizona getting absolutely boat-raced on the road against No. 11 Colorado.
The crew also preview and make their picks against the spread for week 8 with two programs, USC and Washington State, playing out of conference foes and two others, Arizona State and Stanford, enjoying BYE weeks.
And as always they spend time answering all of the questions the listeners manage to send in, including text messages and voicemails!
