A) A Pac-12 Network will be started and this will pick up any games not taken by the primary network partners. B) Larry Scott is committed to making sure that every single football and basketball game (men's and women's) is televised in its local Pac-12 market as part of the media package. There are really only 4 platforms that could handle this: 1) The ABC/ESPN package. This is where just about everyone has moved. Tons of exposure and it's the top dog. But do you get lost in all its other programming? If you don't go with them, do you get shorted in its studio coverage? Not a lot to explain here. 2) The FOX package. FOX has yet to commit to college football on its core network, but that could change as it has been a leader in NFL coverage for years. Its FOX Sports Net is already very regional in its coverage, unlike ESPN, so is probably better positioned to televise all local games. FOX also bought the rights to the 2011 Pac-12 Championship game and has been involved in bowl games. Finally, FOX is based in Los Angeles, which puts the Pac-12 squarely in its wheelhouse. 3) The Comcast/NBC/Versus package. NBC does Notre Dame, which leaves it without a game about 5 or 6 weekends every season. Plus, a Saturday Night prime time game featuring a Pac-12 team would be big for them. Since Notre Dame plays 1 roadie at either USC or Stanford every year, that also give the network an additional marque ND game on its slate. Versus is the main home of the Mountain West, so the Pac-12 could push them out in a strategic move. Also, Versus has been sub-licensing about 10 Pac-12 games a year for the past few years so there's an existing relationship. Finally, Comcast is the dominant cable provider in the Mountain and Western time zones so a partnership here would likely be beneficial for getting a Pac-12 Network placed in a basic cable tier within the main geographic markets. 4) CBS/College Sports Network package. CBS does several bowl games and is still king of college basketball coverage. However, it lost its SEC football deal to ESPN this year. If they're going to stay in the game, they need to replace and the Pac-12 is available. CBS could be the surprise entrant into the bidding war. Its CBS College Sports Network recently launched and covers a variety of college sports, including football. CBS may be the player that would allow the most content onto a Pac-12 Network while also being able to step up with top broadcast teams, a lucrative contract, and a major network. Plus, it's not like being on CBS has been hurting the SEC the past decade. Which one sounds best to you?
