Week 3 Predictions and Preview, Player IV Fluids for Hydration, UCLA Free Tickets
George Wrighster and Ralph Amsden break down and dissect all the games from Week 3 of the Pac-12 football season. All twelve Pac-12 teams are in action this weekend. The Apostles believe this could be the most important weekend of the Pac-12 season because all the games are non-conference matchups. The results of these games against Michigan State, Houston, Texas Tech, BYU, and Oklahoma will ultimately be used to judge the strength of the Pac-12 come bowl time. Player hydration has been a major topic this season. Coaches are talking about giving their players IV fluids before the games. Ralph has concerns about it but George sheds some light on how common they really are. UCLA has a significant attendance problem. Only about 35,000 people showed up to the 100,00+ seat Rose Bowl to see the Bruins play San Diego State. They have even resorted to giving away 4 tickets to this week's game against #5 Oklahoma. This is similar to a couple of seasons ago when Michigan gave away free tickets to fans who brought a Coke can.

Should Arizona feel threatened by this week's FCS opponent and their fifth year quarterback? Is Northern Illinois' style of play enough to give Utah a contest? Can Washington's Jacob Eason handle Cal's secondary? Will USC's Kedon Slovis be able to handle Stanford's defense in his first college start? We discuss all that and more in week 2 preview episode of The Pac-12 Apostles Podcast. Mike Leach clearly has too much time on his hands. His twitter feed looks nothing like any other college football head coach.  The Apostles recollect the punch that defined a career on the 10th anniversary of Oregon's postgame brawl with Boise State. LeGarrette Blount knocked Byron Hout out after Boise State beat Oregon. It was a game changer for everybody involved. Did Hout deserve it? Send your thoughts and comments to immad@unafraidshow.com.

Preseason AP Poll, USC Disrespect, Offensive Breakout Players, Most Important Players in 2019, Coaching Hot Seats
The preseason AP Poll came out and it featured five Pac-12 teams but there was still massive disrespect for the conference in the mainstream sports media. USC only got 1 vote while Appalachian State, and Army got more votes. Fans don't realize how big of an affect the preseason polls have on the College Football Playoff rankings. There were countless cases in 2018. Eleven of the top 25 teams in the 2018-19 Preseason AP Poll didn’t even finish ranked. In 2017, nine didn’t finish ranked. In 2016, 13 didn’t finish ranked. Commonly, those early season matchups that were so hyped up turned out to be nothing burgers, but they did affect the CFB Playoff committee rankings. Jeremy McCarthy wrote an article on Unafraid Show about the 12 breakout Pac-12 Players and the Apostles discuss where he got it right and where he went wrong. THE 12: There are many players that are crucial to their team and entire Pac-12's success. We rank them from 1-12. There are defensive lineman, offensive lineman, running backs, a wide receiver, quarterbacks on the list. CASTING STONES: When will media members stop asking about what coaches are on the hot seat and how many wins it will take for a coach to keep his job. USC's Athletic Director Lynn Swann was asked that about Clay Helton recently and of course he gave a nothing answer.

Ep #3 Colson Yankoff vs Washington, Pac-12 Stadiums Ranked, Recruits Leaving Pac-12 Country
In Episode 3, the Pac-12 Apostles deal with George Wrighster's tweet about Colson Yankoff that sent Washington Huskies fans into a tailspin. Yankoff is a former QB for Washington who transfered to UCLA.  Huskies coach Chris Petersen refused to grant a waiver allowing Yankoff to appeal to the NCAA for immediate eligibility at UCLA. Both Ralph and George hate the hypocrisy in the NCAA system. The NCAA claims the players are student athletes who need to be protected, but regularly treats them like employees. It is ridiculous that coaches can move as they please from school to school, but the players have restrictions. (0:00 - 11:59) Recruiting matters in college football. The teams with the most talent have the best chance to win the CFB Playoff and National Championship. There are 64 recruits in the 2020 class with either 4-5 stars who live in Pac-12 states or neighboring states. With the exception of the Oregon Ducks and Washington Huskies, the conference is falling behind in the recruiting rankings for the class of 2020. The early signing period is not until December, but the USC Trojans are ranked between 60th and 68th depending on which recruiting site you like.
