Larry Scott: The Leader The NCAA Needs But Doesn't Deserve [SBN BA]

23

First he revolutionized the Pac-12. Is the NCAA next? (For those wondering what I'm talking about, check out these articles by Andy Staples and Stewie Mandel.) For those not interested with the serious, ask yourself: Is Larry Scott the real-life Batman?

Watch Live: Pac-12's major announcement (Consider this an open thread!)

Watch the stream on YouTube! This should be Scott's announcement on the state of the Pac-12 Network (Which I have dubbed "The Network of Champions"). According to Jon Wilner, it looks like Time Warner will be the partner (most likely). This should be a huge announcement as it will shape the future of College Football in significant ways.

Mike Montgomery Reprimanded For Pac-10 Officiating Comments

24

University of California head men’s basketball coach Mike Montgomery has been reprimanded by the Pac-10 Conference for comments he made about the officiating following California’s games at Washington on Thursday, February 10, and at Washington State on Saturday, February 12, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today. For those wondering about the comments, here they are: "They don't care," Montgomery said about the Huskies. "They foul every time at every position and they aren't going to call it every time. So ultimately you are going to get worn down after a while. They are very physical because they are able to play nine guys throughout the game. They just do not care if they foul they are not going to let you get to the basket.

Pac-12 Cable Network Targeted For Launch In 2012, According to SportsBusiness Journal

Interesting points being made here. *ESPN, FOX have shown the most interest, and the Pac-12 has an exclusive negotiation window through April 30, 2011; Comcast is interested too, and they'll soon control NBC. Three very good possibilities for primary TV distribution outside the potential cable network. *The programming schedule would be filled with over 2500 live events from the conference. It's expected all the Pac-12 football and basketball games not televised elsewhere would be picked up which is what everyone has wanted forever. *It would also contain more "premium content" than the BTN, meaning there could be more marquee high-profile matchups. *Schools would contribute all television and other digital rights to the network. *Industry executives aren't sure if the network will succeed like the Big Ten Network. The biggest impediment could be distribution; how many cable/satellite providers would be willing to include the channel in their digital subscription packages outside the West Coast (and most importantly in California?).
