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).
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.
