Introducing RTC’s Pac-12 Microsite…Posted by rtmsf on October 24th, 2011
Ready for Act IV in our unbridled attempt to never sleep again? We are, as today we’re pleased to announce the launch of our Pac-12 Conference microsite to join its older brothers and sisters, the ACC, Big 12, and SEC. And yes, it’s going to take a long while to get used to writing that “12” instead of “10” — in fact, we’re counting on making that mistake at least once a day for the next two months. Nevertheless, even though the league often tips off after those in the east’s bedtime, the only major conference playing basketball west of Denver appears to be on an upswing.
Sean Miller is quickly revitalizing Arizona into national powerhouse status, and UCLA seems to be on the verge through Ben Howland’s recruiting of perhaps putting together another string of Final Four runs. Washington remains a tough match-up with its line of talented athletes from in and around the Emerald City, and does anyone doubt that Phil Knight’s dollars will allow well-funded Oregon to stay down for very long? The league has already signed a deal with ESPN and Fox Sports to allow more people around the country to watch its games, and with increased exposure comes additional recruiting opportunities.
Like the other three existing microsites, our two staffers, Drew Murawa and Connor Pelton, will bring you daily news, analysis and commentary on the state of Pac-12 basketball. The usual ways to find the microsite are in effect: the little button in the top right hand corner of the site, the direct link, or just add pac-12 to the end of rushthecourt.net/. You can reach both of them via their contact information over on the microsite.
Finally, we’re still taking applications for our Big East and Big Ten microsites. Send us a writing sample and some information about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can. The season is only two weeks away!
