I’m surprised it took this long to get posted. Very interesting hire. Zero college athletics experience.New commish
Seems really solid on media contracts/rights etc.. Maybe let him make the money and the presidents/AD's do the athletics part? I have no idea, I'm pretty sure he won't be any worse than their last one. He was smoke and mirrors and rode that conference into the ground IMO.
This will end in spectacular destruction. I get why you would lean away from the norm, but typically these kinds of hires at companies with "leadership skills" but don't understand the business almost always ends poorly.
On the other hand, delegating and trusting the people who've been essentially running the conference underneath him might still make this equation work.This will end in spectacular destruction.

I generally agree with that, but moving to the central might get the PAC more exposure earlier in the day. Makes awkward scheduling though.I fail to see the advantages for a conference to have teams in 3 time zones. I'm honestly asking this question. In my view, 2 time zones are tough enough to handle.
Yeah, Pete Fiutak is clueless with his take on potential P12 expansion. With the future of PACN essentially DOA as a conference owned entity. the Pac 12 would be better served by going back to 10 schools. While that likely won't happen and with Larry Scott out of the picture, the odds have increased of Amazon buying PACN production assets for their new TNF NFL deal and also using those assets to facilitate a P12/B12 Alliance or Merger to enhance their entry in CFB production as part of the new TV deals that will negotiated over the next 18-24 months for both conferences.The newest article pushing the Pac 12 to poach Big 12 teams now that they have a new leader. There's so much to disagree with in this article, I don't even know where to start. Situation might be different in the next year or two, though. But something to chew on (and roll your eyes at).
With George Kliavkoff hired as the new Pac-12 commissioner, conference expansion is on the table ... maybe. What schools should be targeted?www.yahoo.com
