It would be a pretty sick football conference, but Im not that into 16 team conferences. I think 12 is perfect, with 16 too many teams dont play eachother.

Maybe I'm completely novice in thought here, but why is everybody trying to expand? The big 12 is a fantastic and competitive conference, why are we changing that? If the pac-10 wants to expand and pick up teams like Boise, BYU, Utah, than go for it, but why are we tearing apart conferences?

I've been feeling lately that Utah, BYU, CU, KU, KSU and someone else would join the PAC 10. The other big 12 schools would join the big 11, and SEC. SEC would basically become an even bigger football conference with UT and OU. Then the ACC would get UConn and the likes from the BE to become a super basketball conference.

BYU will never be a pac-10 school because of religious affiliation and they never play sunday games

Boise doesnt have the academics

I'd love to see my wildcats take a crack at u$c every year, but it really doesn't make sense. The time difference may have an impact on a tv deal. Plus, for smaller sports, the travel costs would be a lot higher.

Plus, I just don't see KANSAS state in the PACIFIC 10 haha

Birgeneau said that expansion is a real possibility in the near future, and that the Pac-10 is seriously considering "a couple of schools, at least one of which meets the academic standards of the rest of the Pac-10."

I've heard Texas A&M is considering the SEC.

Texas, I read, won't join the SEC because the academics aren't up to their standard.

======

The Big 10 is really screwing up the college landscape. Missouri and Nebraska will jump ship right when offered. This in turn will motivate Colorado to move to the Pac-10. With these guys gone, I imagine TAMU will jump to the SEC.

I wonder what will happen with the rest of the teams. I can't see OU, OSU, Texas, etc, joining the Pac-10. Maybe they'd form a new conference?

Here's the quote from several news articles today.


Aggies athletic director Bill Byrne spoke at the Big 12 meetings about the option of joining the SEC if the Big 12 breaks apart.

"It might be,'' Byrne said, pausing. "You know what? It might be.''


But like you said, I can't image Texas and TAMU leaving one another.

$$$$$

The big 10 is making a killing with its network. A big 12 network would not be viable because of the lack of major markets (the big ten has chicago and philly markets), and how small the kansas and oklahoma markets.

A pac 10 network would be more viable with more schools.

Plus, with "super conferences" the schools have more bargaining power with the tv networks.

Being from lubbock and being a Tech fan this is kinda flattering that all the other conferences want to cherry pick our big 12. What they dont know is Tuberville is creating a monster under everyones noses here at tech and within the next few years Tech will be the school to beat in the big 12. Yes i was upset with Mike Leach getting fired, but who wouldnt be? The mentality here is quit being a pussy and having your daddy fend for you, be a man and fight your own fight. That is why everyone was pissed about the situation. Now that Tuberville has come along it has calmed everyone down cuz Tuberville is a class act, a proven winner while with Auburn and there are swirlings that Texas Tech and Alabama will set up a agreement to play every year Tuberville is coach due to Tuberville defeating the Tide 6 consecutive years in a row at Auburn.

That is the concern most fans have. For a majority, the confrences are set up very well by region. I would like to see how easy it is for Texas fans to be traveling to the north east alot during football season if they did join the big 10. It will be expensive and IMO not worth moving to that conference. At least with the big 12, all their big games with OU, OSU A&M and Tech are less than a 5 hour drive.

as for this.. I wouldnt mind seeing Nebraska, Mizzou, Colorado and KSU leaving.. This means we can bring in BYU, Houston, TCU and possibly Arkasas, from what i hear on local radio is considering a move back to the big 12 to kindle some rivalries from the South West Conference. Right now the big 12 North is the division coaches would want to be in, the Big 12 south is a nightmare.

Not really a matter of "getting better" than the SEC. No doubt that's part of it, gotta keep being competitive with top athletic conferences, however it should be pretty simple to see that expansion is not just an interest of the Pac-10. We have heard expansion talks among almost all major conferences since last season ended. So I would think the incentive to expand has mostly to do with the current postseason system.


lulz no matter who brings in who the Sec is still gonna be dominating.

lol if the proposed expansion actually went through, in no way would the SEC would still be "dominating" unless they, too, expanded. No matter which conference expands first, you can bet your ass that the other conferences will follow suit shortly afterwards.

I would actually like to see it expanded but I fear with more expansion means less OOC competition until bowl season. However 4 BCS Conferences with 16 teams each would defintely set up for a real nice national championship tournament. And if that were to come from all these super conferences then I am all for it

Yeah the rivalry is not really competitive these days i agree on that, but back when the big 12 started Texas and A&M agreed to stay together and where ever they went Baylor and Tech were to follow suite.. but these days with politics and money involved i doubt baylor or tech would get that opportunity, but a&m would have 2. btw, with all this conference shifting i learned this from a espn radio analyst lol.

Every single Pac-10 school is a "high-research" university. I think that's one of the main requirements they desire, hence why no Boise or Fresno.

How many are AAU? I know a lot of them are, but not all. AAU is top tier of research universities.

This would be awesome. They are saying it would be divided into two divisions

west-SC,fucla,stan,cal,oregon,orst, wash, wash st

East-UT,A&M,tech,oklahoma,okst,colorado,arizona,arizona st

-Each team would play the other in its division, then 2 games (1 home, 1 away) against the other division teams, then 3 OOC games which most teams do now anyways
-Pac could get its own network showing a lot more games nationwide and bringing a lot more interest to the confence.
-More revenue for the conference and its schools
-this conference would put out some awesome games during the year with potential of SC vs UT or oregon vs ok, etc and still keep the rivalries like ok/ut, and all the other instate rivalries in the pac that now exist

I think its all up to UT, if they go expect the other teams to make the move. I see it happening and it's the best possibility if the conference is to get broken up. The other teams would join the big 10 (nebraska, missouri) , and the rest possibly the MWC

This move would be great for the mountain west. Boise State is getting an official invitation on Monday and if the Big XII broke up they would get the scraps like Kansas, K-State, maybe Baylor, and Maybe Nebraska if the Big 10 snubs them and the 6 teams bolt for the Pac 10.

The sooner conferences consolidate the sooner we will see a playoff system.
