respect to a large conference with the WAC 16 and with conference networks with the MTN. The Big 10 came along and did both successfully. Granted they had some built in advantages. But they learned from what others had tried to do before.
The PAC 12 didn’t ever dream of going beyond 12. And they got greedy and failed to do their own network the right way. It should have been about distribution and NOT owning the network.
They’re about to blunder their way into having a significant percentage of streaming as a major part of the media deal. Eventually someone else will come along and be the second mouse. But the PAC will surely screw it up and harm their league’s visibility and viability in the process.
