The Pac-10 has unveiled their new logo, and has a pretty cool football promo video out, in preparation for Media Days this week, starting with the appearance in New York tomorrow, the visit to Bristol, and the ESPN home offices, and then Media Day from the Rose Bowl Thursday.
Watch closely and you will see that Oregon St., Reser Stadium, and the Rogers brothers are all prominent pieces.
There is also a conference promo, with a lot of football history and current action.

Jake's budget doesn't include any of us getting to go to New York or Bristol (email firstname.lastname@example.org to lobby for more road trip coverage!), so we won't be able to quite keep up with the likes of Ted Miller, but we will be striving to keep Beaver Nation informed of all the new moves this week that Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott has in store to get the Pac-10 brand in front of the rest of the nation. And watch for full coverage of the more traditional Media Day, which has been moved this year from the LA Airport out to the Rose Bowl, the Pac-10's signature facility.
