    They can support 20 BCS schools if they want to, but only a couple will be good at any given time.

    Texas can support 2 very good football programs at one time. California appears able to match that.

      Coast line is important because? Are they going fishing?

      And NOW population matters? Honestly, I'm having a hard time understanding what you're talking about.

        When did population not matter? I mentioned both the populations of Idaho and Hawaii as disastrous to their case. Dallas/Fort Worth has the population, but adding ANOTHER Texas team to a conference that already includes Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Baylor doesn't do much in terms of TV or recruiting. I'm sure TCU has a pretty loyal fanbase, but are they going to take any fans away from those other teams? Seems unlikely.

        As for the coastline, it only matters from the standpoint that no one can go west of them... or north or south for that matter. It's a built in advantage for the PAC 10 to only have to worry about moving East.

        Outside of the south, the Big XII is competing on all fronts, but that also provides them an opportunity to spread out in any of the other three directions.

          I think Texas vs Texas match ups will always sell.. seats and on TV.

            Check and Check on 1 and 2. New Mexico's plummet in football takes them down the list. Is Central Florida next to go up?

              Nova would be a solid guess iyam, good in football, plays in big east in each other sport anyway


              Saints 2014 draft wish list:
              - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
              - Corner or Wideout in the first
              - No reaching
              - No Kelvin Benjamin

                Well Nova already got the invite, so it's there if they want it. I remember thinking originally that they either had no business being on the list, or should have been much higher. Obviously the latter.

                They are also really helped by the fact that the Big East doesn't want to add any more teams in the non-football sports.

                  SD State is in a rather unfortunate location. They'll probably never get to join a major conference. Also, Houston to the Big 12 will probably be a likely landing spot in the future. If SMU can dig itself out of a hole, they'd be a decent choice, too.

                    SMU has some SERIOUS debt issues. Not sure if that's what you meant by hole, but yeah. I remember that's why they weren't on the list in the first place.

                      Oh I know about the debt, but what do you expect when you charge 45k in-state tuition and a large chunk of your students are on scholarship because so few people could even afford to attend that school? Not to mention, the Park cities do EVERYTHING they can to make sure that it's nearly impossible for students to live off campus unless they commute.

                        BYU already has it's own network on DirecTV and Dish.
