No one knows more about the Pac-12 than Jon Wilner - journalist for Bay Area News Group whose Pac-12 Hotline column is syndicated throughout the West.

He and AJ discuss what happens behind-the-scenes when a conference is choosing a new commissioner, how NIL will change college sports as we know them, and the relative importance of exposure versus money when negotiating a media deal.

Jon is also a voter for AP Top 25 for football and basketball as well as the Heisman Trophy. He breaks down how his thought process differs from other voters.
