Shutdown Fullback previews the hipster conference that is the Pac-12

The guys from Shutdown Fullback have this Pac-12 preview heading into July 24th's media day in Los Angeles. Jason Kirk and Spencer Hall give the Conference of Champions its due; they win at a lot of things and are generally ahead of the curve.

It's the hipster conference by location and by act. Larry Scott is doing something with the digitals that can send live streams of games to iPhones, so that's pretty cool. But more importantly, football season is staring us in the eye.

A quick, bullet-point list of things to note.

  • The craft beer is better out here.
  • Was the best moment in Arizona football's history Dennis Dixon's knee exploding? I was there so a biased viewpoint would lead all signs pointing to YES.
  • ASU's pitch-fork hand gesture is hardly a pitch-fork hand gesture.
  • The guys give Arizona a No. 9 ranking for mascots because Wilbur, "Could be a feral cat eating out of a dumpster."
