Talking Washington State and the future of the Pac-2 with Jamey Vinnick from

In this episode of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are in studio and joined remotely by the Washington State football expert Jamey Vinnick from, talking about the state of the Cougars athletic programs as WSU and partner OSU head into uncharted territory.

With the breakup of the Conference of Champions, Oregon State and Washington State were left trying to put the pieces back together, forming a two-team conference under the Pac-12 banner during the two year NCAA grace period. Over the next 24 months OSU and WSU will try and rebuild the Pac-12 into at least an eight team conference and work their way towards the future equivalence of “Power Five” status.

We talk to Jamey about everything that has been going on up in Pullman during this off-season, the latest news and notes from spring practice and the 2024 football schedule with a heavy dose of Mountain West opponents.

They also discuss the opening of the NCAA Transfer Portal this week, basketball coach Kyle Smith heading to Stanford, athletic director Pat Chun going to hated Washington and lots more.

As usual Ryan and Dave end the podcast answering listener emails and questions from the YouTube chat.
