I think you will be run out of Texas for your first statement. I do agree with your second statement, though. Anyone who really cares about sports left Dish (or never started with Dish) long ago and is now with DirecTV. PAC 12 fans, though are out of luck with either satellite providers. The PAC 12 network was designed for cable and does not translate well to satellite. Dedicating 7 CONUS transponders to one mediocre conference is not going to happen. It is not like the PAC 12 is the SEC (or even the Big 12 or Big 10).
