The Pac-12 Hotline’s Jon Wilner joined the podcast for a wide-ranging discussion on his work, the recent college football season and the sports business landscape in the Pac-12.
Topics discussed include:
— What Jon’s interested in and how Jon handles the workload
— How social media has changed Jon’s workflow
— Scheduling of Pac-12 conference championship on Friday nights
— Jon gets on the soapbox about Saturday road games followed by Friday night road games
— The Herm Edwards Experience
— Jon having votes in AP’s college football and men’s college basketball top 25 polls
— How Jon feels about the four teams in the college football playoffs (Jon had Ohio State 4th)
— Most frustrating aspect of being a Heisman voter
— Jon’s thoughts on the discussions between Disney and Fox that now reportedly include the regional Fox Sports networks
I’ve been reading Jon’s work for years and it was a lot of fun to finally talk to him.
I’ve started a daily-ish newsletter in addition to the podcast.
