Pac-12 source: "We are very confident to beat that number."
I agree that the PAC 12 Network has high quality production capabilities. All Amazon or Apple would have do would be to bring in the play by play and color commentators and sideline reporting.
If Kliavakoff or one of his staff happens to be reading this comment please consider pushing for the game announcers to actually attend the games. It will be a better experience for all of the PAC 12 viewers.
No one can justify remote broadcasts as we exit the Pandemic.
OREGON VS UTAH? I love the UTES and am rooting for them but Oregon looks scary as hell.
This is being hailed in media as a triumph for the Big12. It's all relative though. It's a triumph when you think that the Big12 almost died a year ago. It's a triumph to get money at all for a conference headlined by TCU. But this is less than half of what they are getting in the Big10 and SEC. This firmly cements the Big12 and Pac12 as second tier conferences.
The main hope now for Oregon, Washington, Utah, and maybe 1-2 Big12 teams is to be good enough to be included whenever the "haves" break off from the "have nots".
If you love offensive line play watch LT tackle Braeden Daniels at Utah.
How about those Trojans barely escaping
Arizona!!! Utah crushed ASU but Arizona will give the UTES some problems. Utah’s defense looked like USC ‘s defense against USC.
AT THIS MOMENT IS CALEB WILLIAMS THE BEST QB IN THE COUNTRY?
doesn't the Pac need to decide who, id any, new members they can invite in?, Doesn't ESPN need that information?
I’m hoping to see all in with Amazon or Apple including an agreement to simulcast a few games of the week on a lesser broadcast network like the CW. “Amazon College Football on the CW.” Everyone with cable gets the CW and I’m fairly sure most with antenna only do too. Be done with ESPN and FOX, except for Amazon/Apple advertising its games on those channels like they do for Thursday Night Football.
It would be nice to be proactive in the future regarding all this media B$
Enough of that -

Friday’s game should be a war💥
Yormark's deal won't look like the the Deal of the Century when the Pac12 emerges stronger than ever. Your move, GK.
I agree, the Pac is sitting pretty for any streaming service because of their media
production platform is already in place. Plug and Play if you will...
IMO getting to the finish line first reduces some of our leverage. I appreciate you and others are "hopeful" to exceed the bottom-line. Hope you're right and thanks for all your excellent reporting.
hey everybody. I know this is off topic but oregon state is #24 in this week's poll! This helps PAC 12 brand!!!
The devil is always in the details. Read somewhere that ESPN has a significantly bigger piece of this B12 deal than FOX. Probably an indication that FOX valued B12 for the Oklahoma-Texas game more than anything. It would also seem to indicate FOX will have no interest in re-upping with the Pac (to the extent that they ever did). For ESPN, this means even less space available for Pac games.
I got kicked off the Athletic for arguing with ASU and USC fans. Admittedly, I was trolling them and having fun. Not swearing, not being vulgar , just getting under their skin. I think I pissed off the USC, ASU and Huskies beat writers. The homerism of the writers on the Athletic makes them hard to take seriously. Especially the USC dude
I sure hope they go with Amazon over Apple. I'm not going to add *another* streaming service, and Apple TV Plus (or whatever it's called) makes it a slight pain to sign up without an Apple device, and they don't have an Android app (which is ridiculous for a streaming service).
There are way more people with a Prime subscription than there are people with Apple TV's streaming thing.
Sounds like a solid plan for Amazon to use the Pac 12 streaming set up. like to see them add SDSU to the mix. I see no reason to have 12 teams in the new format. That could add three or four tier 3 games a season as well.
