I have no idea Southie. I’m guessing that she is in the top 3, with the UCLA and Washington coaches!

Maybe they should call Gene Hackman?

More like Harvey Keitel, considering the splattered mess of a program that's all over the back window everyone's trying to clean up so they can see last year's WCWS appearance.

UCLA coach makes less than 200k per year.  I'd say Tarr and Candrea are the top 2 with Candrea JUST getting bumped to over 300k total compensation within the last year or two...long overdue.  The Pac 12 is super cheap.

Trickle down from a terrible TV deal.  I can't believe I still can't watch any PAC-12 games in any sport on DirecTV.  At this point, simply for brand assistance alone, it would behoove the PAC-12 to give away a year for free (the increased recognition/publicity is worth something) in exchange for a long-term deal that puts them on the radar.

I follow SB pretty closely, and I still don't know most of the players on the top PAC-12 teams.

Yeah the Pac 12 Network absolutely sucks.  I can only watch the great majority of games on my phone, even though I am a Dish Network subscriber.  You have to have EACH region in your subscription in addition to Pac 12 national to watch regional games on tv and it is not user friendly to even find how or where to click regional subscription, but you still cannot get them on your computer or your phone.

Yeah, the only time you see the PAC-12 teams on ESPN is during the NCAA tournament. The SEC has ESPN on lock because they are in bed together with the SEC network. The pac-12 network needs to cut a deal with FS1 or something. I’ve only seen the PAC-12 network on Sling tv!

Yes, the SEC is very prominent with ESPN, but with ESPN+, now you have quite a few mid-major conference games available for $5/month.  It's crazy that you can watch all the conference games from schools you've barely heard of, but not the PAC-12.

The PAC (other than Stanford, and certain sports like UCLA and Arizona men's hoops) has always been cheap with coaches' salaries, and facilities.  It was like this way before the PAC network and recent TV deals.

For me, ATT Uverse no longer provides any of the PAC networks in my Uverse 450 package (which I thought was the most comprehensive).  Haven't bother to call them to find out what cost I would incur to view them, or if they no longer have them available at all at any cost.

ATT owns DirecTV, so that would explain it.

Dang that is a slap in the face to Lombardi. Finishing behind Stanford and Cal?

If no Pac-12 Networks, Sling TV ($30) and fuboTV ($45-50) are your streaming options. One option is to drop down to the lowest cable/satellite tier (no sports channels) and add one of the streaming options to get sports and additional programming.

Unfortunately, no one streamer covers all the bases. Sling TV has the ESPN channels, but no BTN. fuboTV has BTN, but no ESPN.

I went through the analysis recently.  Based on my available internet speed, need for certain channels, need for unlimited DVR, the number of streaming devices our family uses, compared with all of the restrictions on the various streaming services and the PITA it would be to try to coordinate among 3 or more services, there's no way I can leave DTV.  Until streaming consolidates, it's a non-starter for me.  The cost difference would ultimately not end up saving me much, but I'd lose a bunch of channels, wide open DVR, and the convenience of everything on one service.

Like I said, no one streamer covers all of the bases. Sacrifices and trade-offs abound. Especially if you want everything available everywhere.

One option that can work for some is to slim down to a non-sports tier/Internet bundle, then add a streamer for sports and additional programming. Incentive depends on how bad you think you're being squeezed and what you're willing to give up.

Base salary, Tarr made $307,000 in 2017 Candrea made $231,000.

I believe Tarr's base was 330k for 2018 from what I saw. She definitely parlayed the Arkansas interest into a raise. Not sure if she did the same with the interest from Texas last year.

Shoot I was off by 35k.

Candrea's extension includes performance bonuses and a raise in his base salary to $345,000, as well as 50,000 units in a master limited partnership that will vest at stages throughout the contract. Candrea's base salary was at $230,000 as of the 2016-17 school year.

They had to raise Candrea's salary cause Wildcat new women head coach Adia Barnes was signed to a 5-year contract calling for 235K per year.

He's not a squeaky wheel... so they screw him.

Life in a nutshell...you have to be a self-serving entity to get paid

One thing...the Oregon softball team is likely to exceed expectations!

There were years when my daughter played when they were projected to finish last.....

The problem that I found is streaming limits. With Xfinity, you're limited to 1TB/month which if you are using something like sling/fubo/psvue etc can go pretty quickly. It costs an additional $50/month to get unlimited which, when you add that to the base internet + streaming costs is about that same as I pay for xfinity tier 2 + sports package. I can't believe in the city the size of seattle, that I can't get more options then that given that I live about 1.5 miles from downtown, but I haven't found anything better (or even competitive) so far.

And also with some services, you are limited in the number of streams at one time.  I think it's Sling that has two packages, and you can get both, but the channels in one of the packages are limited to streaming one channel at a time.  And the DVR options for each service are very different and nowhere near what I get with DTV, and you can't use DVR on some services at all if you are accessing the service through a smart TV (it has to be a Roku or other device for DVR to work).  I just don't have time in my life for the complexities of having to remember which service certain channels are on, which ones we can only watch one channel at a time on, and not having 1TB of DVR space for everything, all in one place, like I do with DTV.  I put together the cost for everything we'd need, and I would need 3 services, have many more restrictions, all the complexity, and maybe save $30 a month.  DVR alone is worth that.

I'll eventually get there - especially once the kids are finally out of the house and there's fewer streamers to worry about - but streaming services just aren't good enough (or targeted to people like me) yet.
