Larry Scott Is Your Pac-12 Commissioner Through 2016

Here's how I imagine this conversation went.

"Hey guys, my contract is up."

"Oh, what, already?"

"Yeah, I've been hearing from all these great places."

"Really now. You say so?

"Indeed, they appreciate the job I'm doing. MLB, the FCC, Starfleet Command. They really think I could do good things if I expand my horizons."

"I think we can make a good arrangement here."

Ten minutes later, extension!

Larry Scott has taken the Pac-12 from the 19th century to the 21st in his two-and-a-half year stead. Scott expanded the conference from ten to twelve teams, created the inaugural conference championship game, created a landmark TV rights deal that will ensure profitability for the teams involved, and will have their own network (both on TV and online) to market and publicize the conference.

And there's still so much more to do. The Pac-12 Network still needs help being distributed on all platforms, has to hire all its new members and find programming to fill its 24 hour coverage. There's a Pac-12 basketball tournament that has yet to be reorganized. There's the road to Asia. So much more for Scott to do, and now he has so much time to do with it.

Now that he's anchored the conference of champions from the past to the present, how long will it take to bring them to the future?
