    This material was provided by the Pac-12 and is available elsewhere — some, if not many readers might have already seen the numbers and/or the list of names.

    But I wanted to include it for the public record, Hotline-style, because it can help inform the public discussion of program success and coaching performance over the past 10-15 years.

    In all, the Pac-12 accounted for 216 players on NFL opening day rosters. I’ve got all 216 listed — again, courtesy of the conference and the schools.

    First the raw numbers, in order:

    USC 36
    Cal 27
    Stanford 25
    Oregon 24
    UCLA 22
    Utah 19
    Oregon State 17
    Washington 13
    Arizona 11
    Arizona State 10
    Colorado 8
    Washington State 4


    * I would have expected a few more from Arizona State and a few less from Utah, but that speaks to the recruiting/development success by Kyle Whittingham and his predecessor.

    (Can’t recall his name at the moment, but I believe he’s still coaching somewhere.)

    * That Cal, Stanford and Oregon have more current pros than UCLA speaks well of those schools … and poorly of UCLA.

    With their tradition and recruiting base, the Bruins should be No. 2 on the list if they are being managed properly on a consistent basis.

    * No school has underperformed its potential — either on the field or with its NFL pipeline — over the course of the past 10-15 years more than Washington.

    Utah with more pros than the Huskies? Oregon State with more pros than the Huskies? Holy smokes.

    Cal underperformed their talent on the field. Funny Wilner didn't mention that.

    Remember when we used to consistently have 20+ alumni in the NFL? It's been too long, but the Rise is real.

    So Munyer didn't make it? He was one the team late in the year I thought.

    There were several years in the 90s when we had 30-40 players in the NFL. I recall being second only to Miami FL in '95.
