Larry Scott is having his Pac-12 championship game press conference today and said this about the next TV rights deal:
“We’re sitting on a lot of untapped growth in our value. . . . When our rights come up, like we did in 2011, we’re going to catch up to the other leagues, maybe even leapfrog some leagues.”
Who will the Pac-12 leapfrog? The SEC? The Big Ten? The Big 12?
I think they will leapfrog the Mountain West.
Scott was asked if the Pac-12 did everything it could to help USC in the College Football Playoff conversation:
“I certainly feel like we’re doing everything we can.”
He did give USC a non-division game vs. Washington State.
