PAC-12 boss claims he wants money for athletes, not "Sweat Shop" and coaches

8/9/2013: From an extensive interview with Larry Scott by former UO student Allie Grasgreen, in IHE:

There’s obviously already a big concern, especially among the academics we write for, about the escalation of spending and the so-called arms race, and Oregon’s new football building is a good example of that. Would you see that sort of spending shooting up even further and faster under a new division? 

I would not…. To the contrary, I would like to see more of the available resources going to support student-athletes, less going to buildings and coaching salaries.

Because you would have different ways to incentivize students? 

Precisely. Right now you’re limited on what you can do, therefore the available resources go to other places.
