AUDIO ON DEMAND: Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott at Sports Executive Speaker Series Event
On May 26th Sports Business Radio and the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center at the University of Oregon brought Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott to Portland for our second installment of our Sports Executive Speakers Series. Our series brings key decision makers from the world of sports before a live audience. Paul Swangard Managing Director of the Warsaw Center and I moderate the discussions. Earlier in the year we had Portland Trail Blazers President Larry Miller join us. Our event with Larry Scott was days before Scott would aggressively set out to change the college athletics landscape by recruting several Big 12 schools to form a super conference - the Pac-16. The prized gem of the recruiting effort was the University of Texas. Scott's bid would fall short (the Pac-10 ultimately added Colorado and Utah to the conference) but Scott won the respect of many with his innovative and aggressive approach.
