Pretty sure both of those are out of necessity though.

What?

Didn't UM play their first home game under the lights just a couple years ago or something like that?

2011 for Michigan Stadium, yes. However, Ohio Stadium got lights in 1985 and the Cotton Bowl got lights in the '60s, so no those games haven't been at 11AM out of necessity.

:ROFL: at the whining about the 11:30 am kickoff for the Big 12 championship game. My God guys, pull your crap together.
But is it on FS1? That's what the broadcasters of the Charlotte game were implying.

I don't know, maybe :dunno: They could put it there to drive eyes to FS1, but the conference has nothing to do with that. I'm sure MLB doesn't want their playoff games on FS1 but they're there.

UT, OU, & the fair all heavily prefer 11:00 am so their fans don't drink & mix all day prior to the game.  I know a lot of OU people here don't like the 11:00 kick, but also say the later kicks are a disaster & they hate all the problems of drunk fans fighting at the fair.  They all recognize 11:00 is best for everyone.

What he said. The time is dictated more by the attendees than viewers/TV ratings in this case.

That being said, when they're both good they draw monster ratings.  The B12 CCG had a 12:00 kickoff in '05 & no one cared.

When this Pac 12/Big 12 thing happens, whatever it ends up being, I'm going to mush all the fat faces who mocked me two years ago. Oh yeah, the animal is back. I know the dude is hated but he's unquestionably powerful in the world of college administration.

The two conferences are not going to combine into a 22 team conference and I’ll bet you whatever you want on that

Actually, a 20 team combined conference who work out very well.  They could play a round robin and we could too.  Then a very big conference championship game every season would guarantee a spot on the College Playoff Championship.  Also would be the strongest conference of the P4.
Hot time in Kat town tonight.

Do you think I'm an idiot? There is literally no one on this planet that thinks that these conferences will combine to form a 22 team conference. Why would you even say that? I think there are three likely scenarios, not in
1. The Big 12 raids the Pac 12, leaving them to raid BYU and the Mountain West.
2. The two conferences go into a scheduling alliance.
3. They combine for a joint media deal.

If #2 or #3 happens I think they both happen. The status quo will hurt the Pac 12 more than the Big 12 as our issue is simply a perception issue and those are cyclical. The Pac 12 has a geographic issue, they'll never get a media deal as good as the other 4 power conferences as long as they are only in those two time zones. I think the Big 12 should get aggressive and raid them, but I'm sure Bowlsby will try to discourage the UPs from doing that, I don't know how his 6 years as Stanford AD will influence that.

I don't think you'll see an official scheduling agreement or 1 big contract.

However, I think the most likely thing next round is Fox sits down with the Big12, Pac12, & BigTen together and says "If we're your highest paying TV partner, we need some considerations & cross-conference cooperation.  We need to get common language across contracts to give us more flexibility in creating schedules with a bigger picture approach."

I think those things could include:
-Influence in cross conference non-con games & dates
-Ability to work to change non-con match-ups & dates 1-2 years out
-Change how weekend selections are drafted, including common language that gives Fox more flexibility in-season
-Influence on conference scheduling to spread out big games across conferences across weekends

This could include things like encouraging Nebraska & OU to play more often & give Fox first shot at it.  It may force the conferences to take a little less from ABC/ESPN or get creative in how games are flowed to ABC/ESPN to keep everyone happy while giving Fox the ability to effectively treat those three conferences as one big conference from a scheduling standpoint.

I think both conferences need each other and there are in fighting among the PAC 12.   I could see a couple of the PAC 12 schools left out, in the same way the Big 8 & SWC merged.  This could become an painless merger as both original conferences could then play each other in round robins and the top team of each division would play in the largest CCG in the national.  Talk about media bucks.  The CPF would work out great, due to the fact it would always be our conference champion and what ever gets picked from the other three conferences.  Our conference network would also be the most watched, due to it covering an area from eastern to pacific time zones.  Plus it would put a lot more eyes on network games that include the mid to western United States.

THINK ABOUT THAT!!!

It would not be the most watched conference tv network.
