"Will Pac-12 be better than Pac-10?"

"It's not just the money," Shaw said. "It's the exposure we've been able to get by adding two teams, selling our conference. The fact we'll be able to show every single game on national TV, coast to coast. We benefit more than most because we are truly a national recruiter. We can tell parents that if you can't go out to California and see your son play, you're going to see every game in your living room. No special packages, no extra money, just through your normal cable. Easy to find Stanford football games."

That is a very interesting take from a PAC-12 school.

I guess to some PAC schools, "exposure" is important.

"...It's the exposure we've been able to get by adding two teams, selling our conference...."

So Utah will get:

1) AQ/BCS caliber competition
2) exposure
3) eventually...money

All of these without turning Indy-Wacky....What a concept! What a well-done job by Dr Hill and Master Whit!!!

Go Utes!!!!

More competitive? Too early to accurately predict. But better? Championship game tv money alone makes this a no brainer. Yes. Absolutely. Unless you're one of those people who don't think that lots of money is better than some money. If so, I'd love to talk to you about some once in a life time opportunities.
