    Gawd, what an indictment. Larry ought to run for office--he obviously knows how to run a bloated, inefficient organization while getting overpaid. Sacramento must be licking their chops to get him.

    This is a great article. The Pac-12 needs to do two things ASAP: They need to move out of San Francisco, and they need to replace Larry Scott. You will not see any return to glory without both of these two things happening.

    Also, one area where they really dropped the ball from the get go was trying to make everyone an equal partner. We all know this is ridiculous. The Pac 12 has two national brands - SC football and UCLA basketball. IMO if they took more care to recognize, promote and nurture these two brands, the conference would not be falling into oblivion like it is. They need to forget this equal TV rights payments stuff.

    If they don't do something soon we're going to see something like Newsom's scorched-earth policies for California playing out in the Pac 12. It's getting perilously close.

    The PAC-12 leadership is so egregiously and obviously effed up that the situation is completely unacceptable, but what can be done by the majority of fans/alumni? It reminds me of what is happening at a certain private university in the South division.

    I disagree on the comment on the ties to the Big 10. The Big 10 is mostly what gives us relevance. No one (outside the Pac 12) cares about most of the teams in the league. The Big 10 has big ratings, big alumni bases, big stadiums that sell out and big revenues. We're lucky the Big 10 loves the Rose Bowl so much.

    My read is that this doesn't have to do with scheduling games against Big Ten teams or keeping that Rose Bowl matchup going. It's more the idea that the Pac-12 has watched what the Big Ten has done and then copies it.

    I hear you but can't the Pac12 still lead and be more aggressive in pursuit of a season and STILL maintain a close relationship with the BIG10? Are you saying if Pac12 played and Big 10 did not, it wouldn't help our "relevance" nationally? Of course it would. I think Canzano's point was that Pac12 seemed content on doing whatever the Big10 did. That's weak.

    No, I'm suggesting that the Pac/Big 10 are joined at the hip...and we're the junior partner. Always have been.

    The PAC/Big 10 see themselves as "better" than the other conferences, because of supposed academics, research, broad range of sports (the "Conference of Champions" thing)...so if the Big 10 moves forward, it makes us look bad if we don't also.

    Seen the B1G HQ. It’s in the Rosemont, Illinois which is NW of Chicago. Surprised the annual rent is almost $1MM. I bet you could buy the place for like $3MM.

    Check that, in 2013 B1G moved to a new, built to suit $17 to $20mm building also located in Rosemont, Illinois. One I saw was in 2010 and really wasn’t much to speak of.

    It’s also mentioned in there that the Big Ten number includes a satellite office in New York.

    If the jerkoff did run for office, I am sure it would be as a democrat.
    No doubt this self promotion fool is a leftists. He can't be fired quick enough

    More relevant would be the five things USC admin should talk about but won't.

    Once the conference deep-sixes Larry Scott, anyone know if Sam Baker's dad would be interested?

    The PAC-12 has a severe case of FOMO. Yes I also believe the PAC-12 follows the Big 10, but when the Big-10 cancelled it's season, the PAC-12 knew it wasn't the only one and could make a statement. After the Big-1o switched gears, the PAC-12 could not be the only major conference not playing or else they would cease to be a major conference.
