  • PAC 10 Expected To Invite 6 Big XII Schools

    http://www.dailycamera.com/top-sports/ci_15222068

    Here and a Rivals site have both reported that Pac-10 is preparing to invite Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State. There is no timetable yet but it is sometime "in the near future". If this happens, and those six teams accept, it would dramatically alter the landscape of college athletics.

      I think the biggest chance to accept would be Colorado, but I don't see it happening with any team.

      If only Boise State, Utah or BYU would get a Pac-10 offer. Or TCU to the Big 12...

      If Texas ends up going independent or to the Pac-10 or whatever, then TCU would be a lock to the Big 12 then right?

        The reason for the discussions have stemmed from previous talks between the two conferences discussing a merger of sorts so that they could share revenue and tv rights. This move would just consolidate power making them one of, if not the, elite conference in NCAA football.

        I think the Big XII schools will definitely consider a move over. If that happens the Big XII would cease to exist and you could all but guarantee that the Big 10 would then go after Missouri and Nebraska, which those two would no longer have to pay the exit fees. Only Big XII teams left then would be Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, and Kansas State.

        This is definitely a situation that will need to be paid close attention to.

          If they do, it only confirms that Nebraska and Missouri are going to the Big Ten.

          This certainly makes sense with all the talk of expansion, the PAC-10 and Big XII seemed left out, so why not just join together and make one super conference to compete with the new Big Ten and the SEC

          I don't think it's gonna happen, but it would make sense.

            I hope the MW keeps the nucleus of Utah, BYU, and TCU whether or not we get Boise.

              I think the PAC-10 is trying to go big, but if this thing doesn't work, the Mountain West is next.

              The question to me is if the Mountain West gets Boise State, do they think they are better and potentially more profitable than the PAC-10?

                I think we become better. I don't know about more profitable. Los Angeles really puts the Pac-10 over the top. USC is the professional team down there.

                  Rather have Boise State then Colorado in the Pac 10, That is of course if Colorado accepts.

                      The Pac-10 would not invite Boise. Their just not big enough for what the Pac 10 is looking for. If the Broncos accept an invite to the Mountain West then I don't see why any of the MWC teams would bolt for the Pac 10 if both are BCS conferences. Doesn't make much sense then.

                        I really don't see this going down. I think the Pac-10 is hoping for at least 1 school to accept but preferably two.

                        However, the only two I see with any chance of joining are Colorado and Texas Tech. These two teams have a lot more reason to bolt than the other teams.

                        Texas and Texas A&M seemed to be tied at the hip (IIRC, that is what ruled out A&M to joining the SEC if they expanded), and I only see them leaving if 1 of two things happen:

                        1.) The SEC expands and brings both Texas and A&M

                        or

                        2.) Texas creates their own network, becomes independant and A&M leaves for the SEC.

                        However, while I think Texas probably does want to become independant, they are probably hesitant and want to see if there are any changes to the BCS where independant teams are hindered.

                        This **** gets too confusing.

                          Something is off about this rumor. There may be something to it, but not in its current form.

                          The Pac-10 requires unanimous consent to add anyone. Stanford and Berkeley are not going to sign off on adding crappy academic schools like Texas Tech and Texas A&M. How do I know? They tried to do it in 1990 and it was voted down.

                            Money, prestige, television contract, and who said the MWC was going to be a BCS conference?

                              I've never heard anyone ask this question. Where in the world would this profit come from?
