The Pac-12 is mulling expansion, and they do so as they attempt to negotiate their new media rights deal that won’t feature much of a presence in the L.A. television market.

Is there cause for worry for Pac-12 fans that a deal has still not been reached?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I react to the news—or, rather, lack thereof—on the Conference’s media rights discussions.

Plus, I share insights as to how the media rights deal looks from a play-by-play announcer’s perspective.

San Diego State and SMU appear to be the leaders in the clubhouse to join the Pac-12 with USC and UCLA gone.

Are those two teams enough on their own to help the league stay alive?

Plus, I provide my thoughts on Pac-12 basketball.
