Pac-12 media day always features commissioner Larry Scott making some comments that defy common sense.
Here was Scott on the Pac-12’s 1-8 bowl record:
“A handful of season-ending games are not an indicator of a conference’s overall strength.”
Nine games might be a handful but eight losses are not, unless you are an awful football program.
More importantly, is that Scott’s takeaway from the bowl performances? One year might not be a reason for panic but at least admit it is a huge disappointment.
Do you think the SEC would try to brush aside going 1-8 in bowl games?
It’s not exactly a better picture when you look at the Pac-12 lagging behind the elite conferences in revenue.
“Money is important and we stay laser-focused on it, but it’s certainly not the only measure of success,” he said.
At least there was no progress in the DirecTV/Pac-12 Network situation.
