    This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back together in studio breaking down what turned into an absolute beatdown week in the Pac-12, with Utah, California, UCLA, Oregon State and Washington State all winning by at least two touchdowns (and most of them by far more than that). By taking down Oregon in bloodthirsty fashion the Utes have vaulted themselves to the top of our Power Rankings and now have to be considered the favorite to take home their first Pac-12 Championship. The guys also talk about the Conference of Champions being shut out of the College Football Playoff for the fifth-straight time, UMass hiring away Arizona defensive coordinator Don Brown, Washington State becoming bowl eligible, the resurgence of the Golden Bears after their COVID-19 outbreak and their push to make the post season plus picks against the spread (both Dave and Ryan went 4-2 last weekend).

UW now joins USC and Washington State as the Pac-12 programs that have fired their head coaches midseason in 2021, setting up what should be a very interesting Apple Cup next week (host David Woods coined the game as the "Application Bowl" on Twitter). Ryan also talks about the poor television quality of Pac-12 games shown on ESPN, the scenarios in which Oregon and Utah can win the North and South divisions this upcoming weekend, which Pac-12 programs are bowl eligible (ASU, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA and Utah) and which ones are eliminated (Arizona, Colorado and Stanford).

    This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods get to talk about something that they haven't been able to in over two years, a win on the football field for the Arizona Wildcats! Sure it took half of Cal's team being out of commission due to a COVID-19 outbreak, but Jedd Fisch got his first win as a college head coach and there is no place to go but up from here for the Cats! Speaking of COVID-19, Cal had 44 players and coaches test positive so its game against USC had to be postponed until December 4, the day after the Pac-12 Championship. The guys talk about that plus big news at Washington where offensive coordinator John Donovan was fired and head coach Jimmy Lake was suspended for a game for pushing his own player after the Huskies lost to Oregon. Oregon State also tossed its hat into the assistant coach firing ring, letting go defensive coordinator Tim Tibesar after giving up 37 points to Colorado. The guys also reveal the double winners in our Survivor Pool, with Sinjin and Dustin each getting $200 in gift cards from Jockey for their efforts!

    This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back with a little pep in their step after combining to go 9-3 in their picks against the spread last week (Ryan 5-1, Dave 4-2). Can the guys keep that momentum going into a full week 9 slate of games with no Pac-12 programs on BYE weeks? Most likely not, but they will for sure give it the minimal effort per usual. Dave and Ryan do have a lot of things to say about that crazy week 8 in the Conference of Champions including Arizona coming ever so close to its first win in over two years, Oregon State flexing its muscles against our previous No. 1 team Utah and Oregon taking care of business against UCLA (before trying to give the game away at the end).

New Conference of Champions boss George Kliavkoff will have plenty of damage to assess from the work of his predecessor and Pac-12 fans are hoping he will be able to push the right buttons to get the conference back on track and on par with the rest of the Power Five. July 1 also marks for the first day that college athletes will be allowed to profit off of their name, image and likeness after the NCAA punted and said schools can police themselves when it comes to NIL. Oregon recently signed an NIL law that also begins on July 1, but states like Washington, California, Arizona, Utah and Colorado with no active law could be better off since there are actually no state laws that need to be followed regarding NIL. Once the clock strikes midnight we expect all of the Pac-12 programs to be out on social media promoting their new NIL plans for their student athletes.

    Could Pac-12 football lose divisions and drop a conference game plus Larry Scott's final gift to Pac-12 fans

    This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods discuss the Pac-12 athletic directors meeting with incoming commissioner George Kliavkoff and how the future of college football scheduling strategy could change with the likely expansion of the College Football Playoff from 4 to 12 teams. The ADs are considering a couple of options to help optimize the Pac-12's chances of making and succeeding in a 12-team playoff world, including eliminating the division model for the conference and dropping the required conference games for each program from 9 to 8. Outgoing commissioner Larry Scott left Pac-12 fans with one final gift before he rides off with his moneybags into the sunset, declaring that the conference approves of the 12-team playoff model but wants to see all Power Five champions get an automatic bid. Dave and Ryan discuss how this makes the Pac-12 look weaker, showing no confidence that the conference champion would finish ahead of four of the Group of Five champions (two G5 champs would have to be ranked ahead of the Pac-12's champ for them to be left out of the playoff). The guys also talk about Arizona State's COVID-19 recruiting scandal mess and how new reports have surfaced that could implicate more people higher up the food chain, two more Pac-12 teams announce full capacity crowds this fall, the NCAA getting dunked on by the Supreme Court plus NIL goes live in one week.

    This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods discuss the breaking and disturbing news surrounding Herm Edwards and the Arizona State football program, alleging that the Sun Devils hosted recruits on campus during the NCAA extended recruiting dead period. According to reports, ASU had dozens of recruits from all over the country on campus from October through February, including a huge weekend of visitors for the Sun Devils spring game. There is reportedly a dossier of evidence that was sent to the NCAA laying out all of ASU's transgressions, breaking protocol during a global pandemic. During this period the Sun Devils miss three games in a row due to COVID-19 protocol, the only Pac-12 program to miss that many games in a row. The guys also talk about what looks like the inevitable expansion of the College Football Playoff to 12 teams, something David calls "stupid." They discuss how this could actually be a positive for the Pac-12, with the potential to host a CFP game on the West Coast plus more money for teams in the conference with more teams in the playoff.
