This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods dive into spring football in the Pac-12 with Arizona, Arizona State and Stanford all hosting their spring games over the weekend shown live on Pac-12 Networks. To be fair, David hates spring games so it is mostly Ryan giving his thoughts on what he saw from the broadcasts, read in the recaps and heard from the players and coaches who talked about how the spring session went. Arizona and Stanford combined for just four wins in 2021 but there is still a lot of optimism on both campuses that these programs can turn things around and have a winning campaign in 2022. Arizona State went 8-5 last season and lost more than half of its coaching staff and its star quarterback Jayden Daniels, but there is optimism in Tempe as well with talk of more team chemistry than ever before for Herm Edwards’ squad.
They also discuss the lone upcoming spring game for the Pac-12 this weekend, the Oregon State Beavers which will be live on Pac-12 Network on Saturday at 11 a.m. PT. Speaking of the Beavers, they missed out on the top remaining quarterback in the NCAA Transfer Portal, former USC and Georgia gunslinger J. T. Daniels. West Virginia won the sweepstakes to land Daniels, so Oregon State will either stick with one of the quarterbacks on the roster or find someone else from the portal before the beginning of May deadline.
Which Pac-12 school has the best tailgating experience? A listener wrote in with his thoughts so Dave and Ryan chime in talking about what they like to do on gamedays at the various Pac-12 schools.
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.
