The SEC and ACC have taken their turn in front of the media, and now it's the Pac-12's chance to take center-stage. Here on the West Coast, we'll be doing things a bit differently, with a rapid-fire media day in front of reporters before the groups depart to New York for the second annual bi-coastal media day. The tour ends in Bristol, Connecticut, home of ESPN, on Thursday as the Pac-12 coaches get put through the car wash.
It all begins at 9 a.m. as Jeff Tedford and Marvin Jones take the podium and ends just after 12 p.m.. with one of the two new members, Utah. Each team gets 15 minutes, and will be ejected from their chairs if they go over. Larry Scott don't play.
Of note, the schedule is in alphabetical order by division, with the North occupying the first half of the times and the South taking up the second. The Oregon Ducks are second and, no, Chip Kelly will not talk about Willie Lyles. Expect quite a few "no comments" and blank stares as reporters engage in fun-filled banter with Kelly.
Washington and Washington State are bringing up the rear in the first half of the scheduled times, with the Huskies set to take the podium at 10:05 and the Cougars at 10:20. Below is the full schedule.
