John Canzano made himself look like a horse's backside during the whole "Few to Oregon" saga, but he has recently done a 4 part series on the misery of the Pac 12 and how its money making sports are really struggling. An excellent piece of reporting and writing:

Part One: Left out: How Larry Scott and the Pac-12 continue to lose ground in the college football arms race

Part Two: A look inside the beleaguered Pac-12 instant-replay command center, where Woodie Dixon is still a central figure

Part Three: Pac-12 loses 'staring contest' with DirecTV, leaving fans in the dark and limiting the conference's reach

Part Four: Closing the door on the Pac-12 Conference headquarters: Is Larry Scott willing to make changes?
