This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods return to discuss the breaking news that Washington State head coach Nick Rolovich will not be attending Pac-12 Media Day in person because he has not been vaccinated against COVID-19. The guys were going through the Pac-12 Media Day release right after it was sent to the media and noticed that there was a note indicating that Rolovich would be doing interviews via Zoom. Neither host knew why but within minutes Rolovich’s statement hit Twitter: “I have elected not to receive a COVID-19 vaccination for reasons which will remain private.”
While the guys have a field day with that news, they also go on to discuss what could be another conference realignment wave with both Texas and Oklahoma having potential interest in leaving the Big12 and joining the SEC. The Pac-12 tried to bring in both of those programs back with the league was the Pac-12, but when the deal fell through added Colorado and Utah instead. They also talk about name, image and likeness deals including Alabama’s Bryce Young reportedly getting close to $1 million in NIL money before he even started a game for the Tide.
And as always they spend time answering every single question listeners manage to send in, including text messages and voicemails!
