Pac-12 Media Rights Deal: Money Talks, Reluctantly

Larry Scott played coy with exact figures during Wednesday's press conference on the Pac-12 media rights deal, but the San Jose Mercury News got more exact figures out of him shortly thereafter. (Does doing math in public make Larry Scott nervous?) The actual value sticker on the arrangement is, in fact, $3 billion, not the $2.7 billion first reported. Individual schools will rake in an average of just under $21 million, rather than $22 million. And the NBC/Comcast hydra has only itself to blame for losing out on the conference's allegiance. Scandalous!
