NET GAIN: Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott noted there has been a "focus on the money that we've generated from our ESPN/Fox contract," but said from his perspective the "longer-term benefit from fans is not just going to be the national exposure we get." Scott: "It's going to be what we are able to do with launching our own network." He added, "What our Pac-12 network is going to allow us to do is make sure that every football game and every basketball game will be on air. ... We're going to have a home for Pac-12 sports" ("Chronicle Live," Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, 5/24).
