Pac-12 TV Deal Not A Windfall For Member Schools Despite Perception Of Fans, Media
Published March 24, 2014
QUACK, QUACK, MR. DUCKSWORTH: The OREGONIAN's Canzano noted the TV deal's immediate impact on Pac-12 schools "isn't as fruitful as the casual observer thinks," which "makes the ADs job harder as fans think all new departments should just break ground and build new shrines." The "bottom line" from the TV deal for the Univ. of Oregon is in the $2-3M ballpark, which is "not exactly a windfall" in the department's $95M budget. UO and other Pac-12 programs are "fighting the perception that they have a boatload of new money under the deal" (Portland OREGONIAN, 3/23).
