Would you watch a Pac-10 Network?

Due to the current economy and huge disparity between itself and other major conferences, the Pac-10 is considering starting its’ own network.  It would be modeled after the Big 10 network, which already has a deal with Fox Sports Net, the same company the Pac-10 currently has most of its’ TV rights through.

As part of our “sports package” we get the Big 10 Network.  Have watched it occasionally, usually on Saturday’s during football season.  They show some interesting pieces, especially one about the rivalry between Bo Schembechler and Woody Hayes.  It’s also cool to see some of the old game film from the ’70’s and ’80’s.

With the Pac-10 falling $88.62 million behind the Big 10 in revenue for the 2007 fiscal year, anything to bridge that gap seems reasonable.  We would watch, provided it made sure every football game was on TV and most basketball games.  Oh, and they can’t hire Jason Gesser as an analyst.
