    Recapping National Signing Day 2021 for the Pac-12

    Recapping National Signing Day 2021 for the Pac-12

    In this episode of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods give their analysis on how the Pac-12 faired out on the recruiting trail, recapping the 2021 National Signing Day for all of the conference programs. The Pac-12 produced two top-10 classes with Oregon coming in at No. 6 and USC at No. 8 in the 247Sports Composite Team Rankings. But the rest of the conference failed to crack the top-25 and many programs could be looking to the NCAA Transfer Portal to fill additional roster needs.
    The guys also talk about some of the assistant coaching hires across the conference, rank the best Pac-12 coaches of all-time, read an interesting poem that perfectly captures Stanford's 4-2 season (and makes fun of our prediction of the Cardinal's 2020 demise) and lots more!

    Larry Scott fired as Pac-12 Commissioner

    Larry Scott fired as Pac-12 Commissioner

    In this episode of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods talk about a day that was a long time coming, the firing of Larry Scott as Pac-12 commissioner. Champagne Larry was the highest paid commissioner in college football and was also the worst performing, from his failed Pac-12 Networks to officiating controversy to his lavish San Francisco offices that cost over $7 million a year in rent alone.
    The guys talk about those and several other shortcomings for Scott, where the conference certainly needs to do better, the role the power programs have in turning things around and what direction they would like to see the Pac-12 CEO group go in picking Larry's replacement.

Bill Walton’s Favorite Podcast

What can be said about this podcast that hasn’t already been said? It’s okay. It’s mediocre. There’s only 20-25 of us that listen to it. I guess that’s all that has been said so I’ll stop there.

But I’ll also keep going. This has everything you could possibly want from a podcast that talks about the premier Power 5 conference. There’s comparisons of coaches to inanimate objects. There are recurring characters that email in and provide analysis despite their school winning 0 national championships in the sport. There’s some chatter here and there about football and Larry Scott’s reign of terror. This podcast has it all and delivers the type of analysis deserving of the Conference of Champions.

A four star podcast

due to the unofficial 3rd host being a yuck (hythloday), but redeemed by the righteous flak directed at recent ‘stepped down’ a year early champagne larry, the personification of a f’ing dumpster fire. Thank you, Ryan and David, for making the last several years more enjoyable.
