Pac-12 commissioner makes bizarre comment regarding advantage his league has with Texas and Oklahoma headed to SEC
This is one way to spin things.
We don’t know much about the new Pac-12 Commissioner George Kliavkoff, who replaced Larry Scott this offseason, but during his first Pac-12 Media Days, the league’s new commish issued a comment that makes us question if he has any idea of how massive of a deal it is that Texas and Oklahoma are headed to the SEC.
Kliavkoff had to know questions about the SEC’s expansion were going to come up during Pac-12 Media Days.
While working on how he would answer those questions, this is the best he could come up with to spin it in the Pac-12’s favor:
Pac-12 commissioner George Kliavkoff: "We believe the move by Texas and Oklahoma strengthens our unique position as the only Power 5 conference with teams in the Mountain and Pacific time zones."

Good luck, Pac-12. Looks like you are going to need it based on this comment.
