    Default Great Canzano Series On the Pac 12

    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. Some of this basketball related, so I am going to post this in the basketball forum too:

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

    https://www.oregonlive.com/sports/or...out-part1.html

    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

    https://www.oregonlive.com/sports/or...rt_river_index

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

    Birddog - it looks like both of us will be dead and gone by the time the Pac 12 Network strikes a deal with DirectTv. That is, if it even continues to exist........

    Thanks for the links CDC, I finished all 4 segments. That really is quite an indictment on Scott and his regime. He probably has a secret algorithm that guides his decisions.
