>>Pac-12 Conference leadership pitched university presidents and chancellors a strategic plan aimed at bailing out the struggling conference and helping it keep pace with its Power Five Conference peers.
The “Pac-12 NewCo” plan was introduced to the conference presidents and chancellors at their mid-November meeting and was subsequently discussed in a conference call in December, per sources. Private investors would own 10 percent equity in the newly formed entity in exchange for a $500 million investment.<<

This seems like an absolutely awful idea lol. We're going to essentially make student athletes and their value a traded commodity? I mean, I guess that's already the case, but giving private entities a 10% stake in the conference seems to be a terrible idea, as their interests will surely have no relation to player well being. Squeezing out extra $ at the expense of the student athletes.

I could think of 1000s of better ways to spend $500 million then to own 10% of a failing entity.

Just curious how you get paid on your 500 million.

Might as well ask for 500million dollar donation.

The Pac-12 is so out of its own depth its incredible. A master class in incompetent leadership.

I - correctly - get on Aresco for stuff, but he's 100x better than Scott is.

Watch Tim Ferrieta take 10%.

@uconnphil2016, I dont see much difference between ESPN or Fox owning 10% of the PAC 12 network and another investment arm so to speak. Both have the same endgame, return on investment.

I’ve been part of some pretty big transactions.

I’ve seen people invent value stories to fit their required narrative.

I’ve never come across anyone delusional enough to pretend the Pac 12 rights are worth 5 billion dollars.

If they took that chart to shark tank - that one guy would offer $80k for 51% to superimpose FUBU on the broadcasts.
