How did Rich Rodriguez's speech go? It went on like someone who wished he could take a day off, so he decided to treat Pac-12 Media Day like it was his own personal bachelor party.
Introduction: "I could tell you how excited I am to be here like every other coach, but I'd be lying. I'd rather still be on vacation." Credit: Steven Godfrey.
On new facilities in the Pac-12: "Everybody has new stuff. Oregon changes it out like Port-a-Potties. Every 4-5 years, gotta have a new one." Credit: Greg Beacham.
Skill positions in the Pac-12: "At the skill positions, the Pac-12 is second to none at QB, RB, and WR." Credit: Evan Budrovich.
He especially likes the WR position at his school: "We'll be deeper at receiver than any place I've ever been. We'll have 7 or 8 guys that can contribute." He also singles out Austin Hill as being a candidate for being one of the top wide receivers in the country. Credit: Pac-12.
On starting QB: "Even if I knew the starting QB, I wouldn't tell ya'll." Credit: Reign of Troy.
Then things got weird.
