    The Hotline has devoted thousands (and thousands) (and thousands) of words in the past few months to off-the-field matters involving the Pac-12, in the form of news and commentary.

    (It’s darn close to a billion-dollar-per-year enterprise, when you account for all the athletic-related revenue, and 10 of the schools are public universities. The more discussion of business and other off-field affairs, the better.)

    Given that, it seems like providing links to the recent Hotline material in one-stop shopping form would be helpful to some readers.

    Please note, what’s listed below does not include my early-summer preview of the ’16 football season. (Those links can be found here.)

    Also note that I haven’t included a link to every item published in this space on Pac-12 issues, only those that seem the most relevant.

    Here are 11, in chronological order:

    My radical suggestion to help solve the football schedule dilemma and increase exposure.

    Data from the latest Academic Progress Rates.

    Spring game attendance figures and how they compare (poorly!) to the SEC and Big Ten.

    Larry Scott, the Guerrero incident and changing dynamics within the conference hierarchy.

    Pac-12 finances and ominous revenue comps with SEC and Big Ten.

    Results from the spring meetings and reduction of night football games.

    Kickoff times and a Pac-12 Networks breakthrough with Comcast

    Larry Scott talks Asia/Pacific Rim.

    Larry Scott believes Pac12Nets the “optimal model for us”

    Larry Scott on the revenue gap with Big Ten, SEC

    Larry Scott on expansion (or lack thereof), staff salaries and night games.
