Cougars Look to Dethrone Ducks

The Ducks will be meeting the Washington State Cougars this Saturday in Seattle. Athletic Director for Washington State, Bill Moos, joined the Bald Faced Truth with John Canzano to discuss this upcoming game.
The Cougars know the kind of team they will face this Saturday, and they are going in ready to be the underdogs who dethrone the kings of Pac-12.
"I think we are doing a good job of building an infrastructure to have a successful program. I am a believer that you build a strong program, and it will produce winning teams. Oregon is certainly a great example of that."
The new Pac-12 TV deal has earned smaller income schools such as Washington State, an income with which to balance the support the Ducks get from Nike Head Phil Knight.
"While we don't have anyone with the means such as Phil, what we do have is the new TV money. I have told people that average of $20 million a year is far more than Phil and Penny were giving us back in the day. We need to invest it wisely, and utilize it."
Bill and John go into detail on the income the Pac-12 is receiving from the television deal, and what this income will mean for the success of the conference as a whole. Listen below:
