    Just in case anybody needed their daily dose of Larry Scott news:

    https://www.oregonlive.com/sports/john_canzano/2020/06/canzano-time-for-the-pac-12-conference-to-step-out-from-behind-the-pandemic.html

    "The Pac-12 lost nearly $16 million in revenue in the past three months. There were no March Madness payouts, no postseason play, no spring sports season, and the conference was forced to dip into conference reserves to help its members survive.

    The Pac-12 Network laid off eight percent of its staff in April. It froze other positions and implemented 10 percent pay cuts for conference staffers. And Scott, who makes $5.3 million annually, announced he was taking a 20 percent pay cut, although that was an exercise in semantics that was noted by some of the conference’s athletic directors.

    Scott’s voluntary cut was for only three months. It ends next week, at the end of June. He makes $441,667 per month. His pay cut amounted to $88,333 per month, times three.

    Total reduction: $265,000.

    That’s only five percent of Scott’s annual salary. And if he’s not basing the cut off his gross pay, it will be a lower percentage."

    It's time to get back to living. At-risk people need to take precautions as do their family members. Everyone else needs to get back to living, and that's coming from my 88 year-old mother.

    John Canzano is awesome. He's always calling out Larry Scott for his lack of leadership, inflated salary, and especially the ridiculous choice of having the Pac-12 headquarters in overpriced and unnecessary San Francisco.

    When with the university presidents start listening though??

    Yes if living means with masks and social distancing, I agree.

    How much of the Conference's duties could be handled by the schools? Hire an outside schedule-maker, hire an outside adviser to negotiate the new TV deal.

    Who would you find to blow $7 million a year in rent for the Pac-12 Network offices?

    Never forget that a big part of Good Buddy Larry taking the helm was to keep us in our place and like it. He’s exactly what the rest of the PAC deserves. What we deserve is a better (different) conference.

    Yes, hire a schedule-maker and make three firm and non-negotiable demands:
    1) No weekday games
    2) No 8:00 PM kickoffs
    3) No night games in Colorado in November
