I pitched a new vertical to members of Vox Media that would focus on covering all aspects of the Pac-12, the Conference of Champions that has the most national championships of any conference. Pacific Takes is charged with covering sports at USC, UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Utah, Cal, Stanford, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington and Washington State on a comprehensive basis.
Pacific Takes debuted on August 23, 2011 as a member of SBNation.com. The site has seen over four million visitors since its 2011 debut. Writers at Pacific Takes have gone on to write for (or have written at) SB Nation, Pac-12.com, Fansided.com, Sports Illustrated, TheScore, numerous student newspapers, work for Comcast Sports, etc. etc.
