“We are very interested in it, and we’re very far along in planning for the possibility of it. We’ve done a lot of due diligence,” Scott said of a network. “I will stop short of saying we’ll definitely have one. We’ll go into this negotiating period without any encumbrances.”

“We’re going to develop what I think is a unique model,” Scott said. “You’ll see us interested in what’s worked well with the Big Ten, the SEC, and I think we’ll come out with something that makes sense for us where we’re at.”
