Utah athletic director Chris Hill isn't sure if the Utes will receive a full share of the revenue from the Pac-12 Network, but that is a detail he'll worry about in the near future.
For now, he was just thrilled with Larry Scott's latest TV deal.
"Having all our men's basketball and football games on the network is tremendous," he said. "The exposure is going to be phenomenal."
Most exciting to Hill is the prospect of getting all the sports on TV for recruiting purposes.
"This deal is tremendous for the recruiting aspect of it," he said. "Athletes want to be on TV and it's exciting to help grow the exposure. Alums around the country who participated in sports and have a real affinity for their sports are going to be able to watch it."
The assumption is Utah will be a full share member since the network could be considered "new money" for the league, much like the league championship game.
However, Hill was unsure about all the financial details and wouldn't speculate.
"The worst case scenario is we get half a share," he said.&n
