Pac-12 Apostles Podcast (10/6/2022): Karl Dorrell Fired, Is UCLA For Real?

On this Episode of the Pac-12 Apostles Podcast, George Wrighster and Ralph Amsden try to get to the bottom of what would make University of Colorado think that Mike Sanford Jr is the right interim coach to take over for the recently fired Karl Dorrell when Sanford’s offense is what helped get Dorrell fired. The guys recap last week’s games, including Dorian Thompson Robinson lifting UCLA over Washington to remain undefeated, and Caleb Williams magician-like pocket presence that helped avoid an upset at the hands of Arizona State. After giving their updated power rankings, George and Ralph preview and predict this week’s games, and Ralph gives an update and opinion on the ASU Head Coaching Search.

Pac-12 Apostles Podcast: 2022 Week 3 Recap, Week 4 Preview

On this week’s episode of the Pac-12 Apostles, George Wrighster and Ralph Amsden talk about how THE PAC-12 IS BACK BABY! Or is it??? A great week of non-conference play should have been the story, but with whispers that Oregon is aggressively trying to negotiate itself into the Big Ten, the guys try to sort through whether or not a week like this one, that featured Washington beating Michigan State, and Oregon beating BYU, is a fleeting moment of success. The guys break down every game result, and discuss Herm Edwards “mutually” deciding to part ways with ASU. Finally, the guys make their pick for the upcoming week, and lament Oregon State being forced to play both USC and Utah on Pac-12 Network.
