    Every time I have a negative thought about Larry Scott, I remember how much delusional USC fans despise him for $#!+ that is entirely USC's fault and it warms my heart.

    Utah is still getting less money than everybody else because if Larry Scott demanded it, Utah would have been willing to prostitute itself in the slums of Jakarta for a spot in the PAC-12.

    Utah received 0% of a 1/12 share the first FY, 50% the second FY, 75% the third FY, and is finally receiving 100% of a 1/12 share for the 2014-15 FY. All things considered, Utah missed out on approx. 175% of a 1/12 share as the price of entry, and most of the %175 was income missed before the ESPN/FOX contract went into effect, so it wasn't as much money as it sounds like today.

    If Colorado was offered that same deal, their broke ass athletic department would have very likely said "Thanks, but no thanks. We're staying in the Big 12." For Utah, it was a small price to pay and probably took Chris Hill less than one second to mull over.

    A little something from yesterday...

    This has been a really tough week for me. Yes there have been plenty of stuff going on; but what I found driving my emotional state had more to do with being reminded of my father's passing last June than any other factor. Yes, I miss my dad; and the upcoming weekend, though it only consciously hit me that it was a trigger today; has been playing in the background all week.

    My dad was a veteran. When he was 16 years old, he ran away from home and joined the Army. He served at Ft. Ord for about 9 months until the Army found out he was too young to be there and discharged him. When he turned 18 he enlisted in the Navy. He didn't pick a job in the beginning, so the job he had was picking the rust spots off the ship and repainting them. He did that for about 5 months before he decided he wanted to be a medic. He spent a couple of months learning that job, then got assigned to support a Marine unit that was being shipped out to Korea. The war was still going. While their ship was in transit to Yokohama, Japan, was then the U.S. signed the cessation of hostilities treaty that established the DMZ and ended the war. When dad landed in Yokohama, the Marine unit he was attached to (he was what they called a Navy White Hat) he was given a choice that he could stay and serve with the Marine unit since they were staying in Japan, or ship back out to San Diego. He chose to stay and work with the Marines. They had to mobilize a couple of times to possibly ship out to Korea due to some border flare ups; but most of his time was spent mending training injuries and performing first aid for his unit.

    He had many stories he liked to tell about his time in Japan and in the Navy. As we all remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, please also remember those who served, came home, and built these communities we all enjoy who are no longer with us.

    Enjoy your weekend.

    CU had a buyout cost from the Big12, so in terms of total revenue it was probably a wash.

    No doubt Utah was a better deal in terms of competitiveness, but Denver brings a bigger TV market to the mix.

    Haha. Nothing worse than sports fans from Southern Cal.

    Be it NBA, college, whatever...their sense of entitlement is astounding, and sadly you are no exception.

    So basically you don't like him because he didn't try to help SC after they got caught breaking NCAA rules? That's just childish.

    The other reasons you list are fluff and really shouldn't bother anyone. Even the officiating; it's not like there are some universally well-liked officials out there just waiting to be hired and Larry has refused. Fans of every team hate their conference's officials.

    I couldn't have said it better myself . . . well, at least part of it.

    [A commissioner's job] is to promote and protect the brand.


    I don't think that defending a program that cheated and then played dumb when they got caught is the brand Larry Scott wants to promote.


    Sorry but this isn't the 70s or 80s and USC is not the Pac-12. Larry Scott has an obligation to promote and protect 11 other teams in this conference. If USC did something outside of the rules to GAIN AN ADVANTAGE OVER THOSE 11* OTHER PROGRAMS, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever for him to try to minimize the damage the Trojans were dealt.

    send this to your boss with your regrets...



    You'll know the Utes have made it as a football power when all employers in Utah check the Utah football schedule before scheduling such meetings.

    I know someone that just got green lit for part time @ TSA, 18hrs - 28hrs week, range is ~ $31K - $44K annual. Kind of have to extrapolate from there what full time is. Health insurance is probably Tri-Care but can't say that positively. Others on here can probably expound a bit better than I can.

    RE: Why does this dork make 3.5 million a year?

    And why did Colorado get more $$$ than Utah?

    "Every Pac-12 school except Utah ($16.1 million) received more than $21 million."



    Would you have preferred that Utah play hardball when negotiating for entry in the Pac 12 like TDS did with the Big 12?

    There's that entitlement attitude again. Blaming everyone else but yourselves.

    Just stop cheating. Nobody feels bad for Southern Cal.
