Conference Realignment: Pac-12 CEO's want to stand pat?

With all the action coming out of the Big 12 over the past few days, we really haven't heard anything about what the Powers that Be in the Pac 12 want.

Jon Wilner of the Mercury News brings us this interesting angle.

*** The Pac-12 presidents and chancellors do not want to expand. Their strong preference is for Texas A&M-to-the-SEC to implode and for the Big 12 to remain viable — essentially, they want the status quo for as long as they can get it.

Why? Because they have everything they want.

The conference has stability… it has a football championship game … it has the richest TV deal in college sports history … and it has a wholly-owned network(s) to serve its fans, provide unprecedented exposure for its athletes, promote the league’s academic mission — and generate millions of dollars per school annually once it attains maximum distribution.

Interesting...

Make sure to give this article a full read...lot of interesting stuff in there.

I read somewhere over the weekend, I forgot where, that the conference bosses turned Larry Scott loose to do the dirty work of cutting these deals and then slinked back into academia.

Problem is, you turn a guy like Scott loose and its hard to put the Genie back in the bottle.

Scott smells the blood in the water so he is going for it.

With the SEC big wigs meeting in Atlanta tonight and about to offer Texas A&M, rumored to be within the next 24 hours, Scott wants to be ready at the drop of a hat to get the ball rolling.

The fun is about to begin!
