The time has come for the 2014 edition of the Pac-12 media days. Notice the plural there as the conference has elected to spread everything out over two days this year. Players and coaches representing each team will appear on the Pac-12 Networks and speak to the media present at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles. Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott will also speak and expect the Pac-12 media poll to be released as well.
How can I watch?
Everything will be on the Pac-12 Network, which has unlocked its stream for these two days so you don't have to log in. Mike Yam will host and featured analysts include Rick Rick Neuheisel, Curtis Conway, Nick Aliotti and Glenn Parker. You can watch the stream below:

Anything I should watch out for?
Sometimes the conference will announce new initiatives and potentially new points of emphasis for the officiating crews. WSU head coach Mike Leach can tend to go off the rails a little bit with his answers so he can be fun to listen to. The Pac-12 has two new head coaches, Sarkisian and Peterson so the way they answer questions will be interesting. Brett Hundley has been a name consistently thrown around as a player in contention for the Heisman Trophy so listen to how he fields those questions. On a broader spectrum, you may also hear some questions about the new college football playoff system.
Other than that, just remember to have your headphones plugged all the way into the side of the computer at work. Also try to always have something else minimized so you can pull it up quickly to look like you're working if your boss walks by.
