Media Day Part 3: Utah, Arizona State, UCLA, USC
CULVER CITY, Calif. -- The final installment of our three-part podcast extravaganza recorded at Pac-12 Football Media Day at Sony Pictures Studios wraps up with Utah, Arizona State, UCLA and USC.
Kyle Whittingham and Jake Murphy settle in alongside Mike Yam and Ashley Adamson to kick things off on part 3 to talk all things Utes (1:30), and Jake Murphy waxes poetic on the influence his father has had on his life. Media day might be the time to sell your program, but it’s not going to stop Whittingham from getting in a workout at 5:45 in the morning.
Arizona State settles in next (11:40), and Todd Graham goes on and on about his first kiss thanks to his spin of the “Wheel of Fun,” but not before quarterback Taylor Kelly talks about his comfort level leading the Sun Devils into the 2013 season.
UCLA gets the penultimate spot in the podcast (24:36), and it’s a good thing media day was held at Sony Pictures Studios because Jim Mora just loves celebrities. Yam seems starstruck as well, marveling at how big Anthony Barr is.
Last but not least, USC brings us home (37:24) with Marqise Lee forgetting to wear the right socks with his khakis (you can never go wrong with white tube socks), while Lane Kiffin tells the crew that Lee is too good to stay for his senior year (he jokes, he jokes; he kids, he kids).
