Who’s to blame for the Pac-12’s demise?

Traditionally, June is a very quiet month for college sports unless you’re in the College World Series.

Brenna Greene says goodbye to KREM 2

SPOKANE, Wash. — Today is my last day at KREM 2 and I want to take some time to thank everyone who has been part of this four-year journey. I’ve always seen Spokane as my adult home because I came into my own during my time at Gonzaga as a student. I jumped at the opportunity to move back a few years into my career as a sports journalist. Every single day, it was an incredible privilege to serve the region that helped me become the person I am. This has easily been the most fulfilling, enthusiastic and exciting four years of my career in television, and I am so thankful.

I know that Pac-12 football isn’t the greatest thing ever, especially compared to the SEC, but it is to me. I’d rather watch a game between Arizona and Cal then Alabama and LSU. And I’ve never cared if it’s at 7:30 on a Friday or Saturday night either, even if it means less conference exposure on the East Coast.
