The Pac-12 Network is taking a page from Gruden and ESPN

Everyone that enjoys football, and especially coaches, love what ESPN has done with Jon Gruden the past few seasons. Leading up to the NFL draft, Gruden (the president of the FFCA) sits down with draft eligible quarterbacks to break down their game and get on the white board.

While out to eat the other night, I caught a bit of the NFL Network doing something similar with on the field demonstrations with former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner working with quarterbacks, and Michael Irvin working with the receivers. Now the Pac-12 Network will be doing their own version with Rick Neuheisel called "Under Center".

The first episode airs tonight at 8pm Pacific time with decorated Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion, one of the top quarterbacks in the conference and one of the most efficient and prolific passers in the country. The series will continue every Wednesday night with Neuheisel sitting down with UCLA's Brent Hundley (April 30th) and Arizona State's Taylor Kelly (April 23rd) in the next few weeks.

The sneak peak looks similar to Gruden's QB camp, and I'm fine with that. I'm sure 99% of coaches will agree that we'll take as much of this kind of content as we can long as Neuheisel leaves the guitar at home
