And you gotta get to 16 teams like the SEC and B1G will. What four teams do you add?
Well what 5 teams will they add, Colorado would get dropped before they add another.
No clue tbh. Not sure how we get there without adding more California teams unless Larry Scott and co. go after the Oklahoma schools again, and manage to get Texas.
Oh god. I think you have to try to ransack the Big 12. I think that's the only option.
I say Hawaii, Nevada or unlv, Boise st, and someone else
Definitely not UNLV, more than likely I think they should and would take one of the Texas schools.
Boise state can't/won't happen. The school is too shitty.
Well the. Who is the big12 gonna get? They are running out of schools then
The Big XII has the ACC to pick clean. I think that the Pac-12 has less options, but I'm not sure that they need to make a move. 12 is fine and probably better than the slop they would have to take on to get to 16.
I'm pretty sure SEC is getting VT and nc st/ nc
Big12 will expand East. FSU and Clemson will likely be in it for 2014. Miami and Louisville could come next. Just examples.

Yeah, which leaves Clemson, FSU, Louisville, Miami, GT and... whoever. But they have options. The PAC-12 doesn't have any real possibilities unless it wants to add schools in low population areas (BSU), ones currently in their footprint (Fresno St.) or some mid-major Texas school (SMU, Houston). Terrible options.
It's not about the size of the Boise market, it's about the fact that they're literally an upgraded junior college and football is the only sport they can play at a Pac-12 level.
I doubt the Pac-12 ever expands. If the conference dissolves I could see USC/UCLA/Cal/Stanford going rogue as a package deal to another super-conference.
BYU, UNLV, Boise State, New Mexico

BYU, the NorCal schools would nix - no religious schools
They would also say no to UNLV, Boise State, New Mexico - due to academics.

Boise State isn't even in the question due to terrible academics.
Texas, ND, OU, OkSt
That would be ideal, but our commish isn't that competent.
P12 Northwest: UW, WSU, OU, OSU
P12 Cali: USC, UCLA, Stanford, Cal
P12 Southwest UA, ASU, CU, Utah
P12 Midwest: UT, ND, OU, OkSt
It is my understanding that the university presidents said no to the Oklahoma schools.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Scott add Hawai'i to get into Japan's market.
Gotta think big picture.
Love those away games....
The PAC will stay at 12 rather than take any of the current "options". Can't see them overcoming their academic and cultural snobbery to take any of BSU, BYU, Fresno State, SD State et al.
Blows for my school, dunnit? Sigh.
It is what it is.

ND will not join the PAC lol
Hey, I think that's more on the schools up north. I can remember (rather, read) when they didn't want USC because of academics...we showed them!
What school do you represent?
Look closer at my avatar and imagine it without the trollface.
