Pac-12 Media Day means that fall camp is right around the corner and the season opener is just behind that. The event will be televised on Pac-12 Networks. The North schools will begin at 8:30a Pacific and the South schools will begin at 1p Pacific. You can find the exact schedule here although the only thing you can really be certain about is that they’ll end up off schedule shortly after starting. Right now the Huskies are expected to hit the media podium at 10a. Then Chris Petersen and JoJo McIntosh will appear on the TV show at 10:30a with Jake Browning following at 10:47a.
Check back in here throughout the day and we’ll be posting clips, news, and anything else that arises from the event. Football!
7:35am- Washington: Pac-12 Champions?
The results of the Pac-12 Media Poll were announced and the Huskies were predicted to be both the North champions and the conference champions. They received 40 of 42 votes to win the North and 37 of 42 votes to win the conference. USC was picked as the favorite in the South with 22 of 42 votes. Stanford and Oregon each received one vote as the North champion.
This is the first time since 2000 that media voted UW as league title favorite. Huskies were picked to win North last year, but not the Pac-12 title game.— Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) July 25, 2018
10:09- Larry Scott, Leader of Men
Larry Scott opened up Media Day providing a variety of information. You can see the whole video here. Let’s just say that some folks were skeptical.
Scott did also mention that they are expanding an effort to shorten game times which last year in the sample games reduced TV times by 8 minutes.
Larry Scott says that the Pac-12's 1-8 bowl record isn't a "key indicator" of the conference's quality...— Chantel Jennings (@ChantelJennings) July 25, 2018
Because, you know, it's like coaches always say: It's not how you start ... it's also not how you finish because whatev. Everything is fine!
10:13- Bad News for Bryant
Husky fans got confirmation that Hunter Bryant suffered further injury and that he will be out for extended period of time although there is still hope he returns at some point during the year.
Chris Petersen just told us Hunter Bryant will not play vs Auburn. Likely will not play until late October or early November. Could play in up to 4 games and preserve redshirt year. Huge blow for UW.— Dave Softy Mahler (@Softykjr) July 25, 2018
