Once again the Pac-12 has smiled upon CGB and approved my credentials for Pac-12 Media Day. This Friday I'll be there to ask questions, take photos, and report back from the festivities. Although he hasn't fulfilled all his major promises, Larry Scott has greatly improved Pac-12 Media Day during his tenure. Long gone are the days when we held it at some hotel next to LAX. Last year's fantastic media day was held at Fox Studios and this year we're moving to Sony Studios. What surprises does the commish have up his sleeve this year? Can he somehow top last year's decor, featuring the unforgettable turf couches? Follow CGB all day on Friday for continuous updates on all aspects of the day's festivities.
Because CGB thrives thanks to its vibrant community, we would like to hear some questions you want asked at Media Day. Cal will be represented by Coach Dykes, Bryce Treggs, and Nick Forbes. I'm also happy to ask questions to non-Cal reps. Bonus points for anyone with a great, tangent-inducing question for Mike Leach: from talking about shooting bears to determining which Pac-12 coach would make the best fishing partner to comparing his players to famous generals, Mike Leach is by far the most entertaining coach at these events (although I'm willing to let Sonny Dykes make his case). I cannot guarantee that I can relay questions to Larry Scott, as he hasn't been available for comment past years. I'm still waiting to ask him about the "unique" nature of Pac-12 officiating...
