Pac-12 media day is July 24 at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Kevin and I will be there, diligently polishing the bland overflow of verbiage into shiny nuggets of fun and useful information.
But the chief question on your mind is this: Who shall tell you reporters about how offseason workouts were the best IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD and that this team has great chemistry and leadership?
I have an answer, in order of appearance.
Couple of things. First, this is the first time the Pac-12 is bringing two players rather than one. That's good for everyone, particularly with a player representing both offense and defense.
Further, this is the right list of players. Previous years, at least one team would leave a superstar at home, either because he was media shy or because he was too chatty. For example, last year Oregon brought tight end David Paulson instead of running back LaMichael James or even QB Darron Thomas. The Pac-12 blog esteems Paulson as a player and a person, but leaving the Doak Walker Award winner at home was pretty lame.
