Today, in fun with numbers:
- The Pac-12 distributed an average of $25.1 million to each school in 2014-15. Larry Scott, its commissioner, earned almost $4.05 million in total compensation for the same fiscal year.
- During that same period, the Big Ten paid its eleven longstanding members around $32.4 million. Jim Delany’s compensation for that time was $2.6 million.
I never thought I’d live in a world where Jim Delany was a relative bargain.
