Exclusive interview on "Canzano & Wilner: The Podcast"
At the end of the day 65-7 is still 65-7 and I don’t see any of the remaining big 12 teams (excluding OK and TX) sniffing at the upper echelon of recruiting rankings. In order to break the SEC stranglehold on the sport that’s what’s required. Clemson has the template. I really think some sort of PAC ACC alignment would be enormously beneficial to both and media friendly on that front.
Sorry John, Yormark is a worm! I wouldn’t believe anything he says or trust him in any way!!
People are working 50-60 hours a week, after family, there's a limited amount of time. People don't have the time to watch as often as the media needs.
Dude is slick, smart, and crafty. PAC12 is under the microscope right now. A home run is needed to get the college world to hush up.
There's a lot of BS going around.
Sniff sniff HASNAKE!!! sniff sniff. Oops need to clean my nose.
Thanks, John. But the Pac-20 that should have happened before being shot down by USC's president Carol Folt should already have put the B12 and the hire of Yarmack, whose aggressiveness I admire, to sleep.
We should be living in a Power 4 and not a Power 5 world with the Pac-20 in the driver's seat.
Call me when the Pac deal is done. It is being reported that CBS and Turner have left the table and the deals are in the mire.
Were CBS and Turner serious contenders? It would have been news to me that they were even at the table.
Nothing burgers all over this one.
Call me when the Pac deal is done.
Good interview. My dad always preached to us that the early bird catches the worm . Zig Ziegler was a ,aster at door to door sales and sales training, his motto was timid salesmen have skinny kids. Sadly I think the BIG 12 conference hired the right guy and we didn't. Not only didn't Georgia boy get the worm, he hasn't gotten any worms yet and it's midnight. And his sales skills are extremely questionable to non existent. Brett did what should have been natural for George, understand the landscape, the trends and got his foot and sales presentation in before the sun came up. I would bet $100 that George is being laughed at behind his back by the other commissioners.
You both hit on it in your recap… he is a salesman.
And a salesman who has no interest in selling but himself Of the 35 minute show, 30 minutes was him talking and not till the 20 minute mark was student athletic mentioned…the all important person / people he is forgetting
My take away from his talk is a more polished Larry Scott who will do more slash and burn of the college football landscape. If George got hoodwink by the Big10 taking SC and UCLA… watch out
I don’t think college basketball is undervalued, au contraire, I think it is fairly valued to overvalued. One and done hurts.
I have watched college sports since the sixties. My brother was a Giant Killer and I followed a few years later to “tumble away” with Andros..
I find NIL, head hunting players and teams troubling. Just like Little League stacking players to win or select teams formed to gain Wins vs Losses…
In the end for many schools, 85 football players fund the sports scene at most schools. Baseball suffers, basketball bounces up and down, minor sports starve and the media and promoters harvest the money.
Meanwhile, i will head to surgery to get my 5th joint replaced from dedicating my body for the promoters!
Ha! I love that he thinks they are No. 1 in college basketball. The don’t come close to the ACC. I guess that’s the “sales” part.
Streaming is the future of college sports along with remote broadcasting which I don't
have a problem with, I just want to watch the game. That's what the Pac needs to pursue
and would put them at the forefront of the next generation of media rights.
Still wanting to find out how to ask how to ask a question in the hopes it ends up in the mailbag. I don't tweet, so if that's the only way, l guess l'm SOL
Call him a slick salesman or whatever, but dude seems sharp. He read the market, his programs' needs and got probably the best deal he could for his conference - despite Wilner thinking going early left money on the table. And if you listen to the latest episode of Marchand and Ourand Sports Media Podcast (ep 74) it is sounding worse and worse for the Pac's media deal. Basically ESPN is the only one wanting significant inventory, but they are watching their pennies, and Amazon only wants the top weekly game. Once again it is looking like the bumbling, stumbling Pac is coming up last. Uggh
