Pac-12Deion Sanders is inarguably the flashiest coaching hire any College Football team has made this offseason, bringing a sense of optimism that Colorado hasn’t felt in quite some time.

Even if he’s not around for the long haul, it still represents a welcome change for Buff fans surrounding the long-term viability of their football program.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I dive into a busy weekend of news in the Pac-12.

Caleb Williams became the first Pac-12 player to win the Heisman since Marcus Mariota 8 years ago—and he was very deserving of the award.

There are no longer any Pac-12 Football coaching vacancies with Stanford having hired Troy Taylor from Sacramento State to replace David Shaw.

I look at the hire and why the Cardinal likely landed on him as their new football coach.
