The Pac-12 is still leaving fans in the dark as they have still not reached a media deal to begin next year once USC and UCLA go to the B1G.

The timeline seems to keep moving out, and that’s leading people and media members to get angsty—which isn’t great for the perception of the Pac-12.

Dennis Erickson, Mike Bellotti, and Rich Rodriguez all recently weighed in.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I react to the comments of former Pac-12 Football coaches who are worried about the state of the league.

Plus, I answer a question about NIL going forward and the positive—and negative—effects it will have (and is already having) on the Pac-12.

With the women’s tournament ongoing and the men’s tournament starting next week, Pac-12 Basketball is (hopefully) preparing for deep runs in March Madness.

But first, what’s the most likely outcome for the MBB tournament next week in which UCLA and Arizona are the clear favorites?
