Pac 12 Conference Financial Problems Are Not

Larry Scott's fault according to this article in USA Today that states the Pac12 is a clusterfuck. In fact, Wazzu President, Kirk Schulz even says "....Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott continues to do a great job for our conference.”

    Todd Turner was great, Mark Emmert was a GOOD President, Ty just needed more time, Pat Haden was great at USC. The list goes on and on of great administrators that anyone with half a brain and access to a computer have put down

    The directv thing is the main reason I think he sucks.

    Night games and crappy slots I don't have a problem with because frankly he recognized the patheticness of PAC fanbases and knew that we would get smoked trying to compete with the big 10 or sec for viewership.

    I dont even care that no one east of colorado can see pac games because no one east of colorado gives a fuck about the pac.

    It's just retarded that bars IN pac 12 country cant show pac games.

    I don't particularly care about the B1G or the SEC past Bama but since I have 4 B1G channels and the two SEC channels along with CBS and ESPN SEC games I end up watching parts of all of them as I whip it around on a Saturday

    The same would be true if the PAC 12 were in everyone's face. Easterners would at least watch the top teams and know something about them

    Yeah you'd get some casual viewers but not enough to make business decisions on.

    Just having PAC on directv out west would be totally fine

    No one here will disagree with that.
    Haden has done more for UW athletics than any AD in the last 2 decades

    Chinese market is about to break through. Have you seen their population and economy? YUGE potential. First 8 years were just bumper crops, you will see.

    I only want easterners that are willing to stay up until 2 am to watch our games on ESPN and BLEED rainbow Pac-12 blood.

    He should have been fired the second he couldn't get OU and Texas. People with a vision rarely have success when they are asked for an alternate path.

    Instead we are shackled to two shitty teams that meant the PNW gets USC once every World Cup, every game that doesn't start at midnight is on a network no one gets, and there is clearly no plan to make any real progress.

    The Pac-12 today is closer to the Mountain West than it is to the SEC. He's doing a great job though.

    Maybe, but neither does ASU and UA...
    WVU has no business in the Big XII, but they are there. Are we arguing that Colorado and Utah are better additions than OU and UT?

    Do you hate money?
