Pac-12 media day: Your questions?
By ESPN.com staff
Pac-12 media day is July 24 in Los Angeles. Wheee!
Earlier this week, we gave you a primer on all the likely thrills and chills and predictable stuff that is certain to happen.
I might sound a little jaded. This will be my 14th consecutive Pac-12 media day experience. I've outlasted every coach who was there in 1999 during my first one. And then there are guys like Bud Withers of the Seattle Times, who's been attending Pac-12 media day since shortly after Guttenberg invented a printing press in order to get more coverage of his precious Mainz Fighting Miners.
Yet at least a few interesting things typically come out during media day. And, of course, it is a notable and encouraging beacon on the path toward the upcoming football season.
The Pac-12 blog, as you all know, is all about you guys. No, not you in the green shirt, but everyone else. (Most particularly you over there, but ... shhh... don't tell everyone you're special).
So this is your opportunity to tell me and Kevin what topics most interest you. What questions do you want us to ask?
Send your questions here.
I'll put them together, select a top-five, and on Friday we can take a poll to find out what the No. 1 query will be. Now doesn't this sound like fun? Of course, it does.
You can send in questions about the new playoff, NCAA inquiries, injuries, scheduling, depth chart questions or get personal. You can even be quirky. Nothing is out of bounds. Well, other than questions that would cause my boss, Lethal Lauren, to slice and dice me or Kevin.
