With the 2011 college football season almost here, the newly designated Pac-12 embarks on its first season since welcoming Colorado and Utah into the fold.

Oregon and Stanford, each coming off a BCS appearance last season, are expected to compete for the North Division title, while USC is predicted to battle trendy pick Arizona State for supremacy in the South Division.


But while the Pac-12 media poll offers an idea of what to expect between the lines this season, it overlooks questions of great import such as these:

• Which Pac-12 university has the most attractive cheerleaders?

• Which Pac-12 university has the best mascot?

• Who's the best dressed coach in the Pac-12?

So to settle these matters of global significance, Page 2 went directly to the sources by interviewing each of the conference's head coaches during their recent visit to ESPN headquarters. Be sure to check out the extended interviews in the links provided below.

Without further ado, we proudly present Page 2's Pac-12 Coaches Questionnaire:
