Live chat with Pac-12 coaches

With the football season right around the corner, it the Pac-12 blog thought, "Wouldn't it be great if all the great Pac-12 blog readers got to chat directly with their favorite -- or un-favorite -- Pac-12 coach?"

So I called my bosses and demanded you get that privilege. After being whipped and forced to endure all sorts of sophisticated psychological torture, they relented, noting the superiority of my karate with grim nods.

The Pac-12 North Division coaches will be at the ESPN offices Wednesday.
