The biggest downside about the championship game to me is thinking about how absolutely sorry the PAC 12 championship is. Like, why the eff would we want to have anything to do with that garbage?

I've always said it's best to latch onto the sinkiest ship.

Yea I feel like we are in much better shape than they are.  I would think any kind of alliance would benefit them much more.

Put the Big 12 champ into that game and it becomes just ridiculously sexy. It would be what the Rose Bowl used to be.

Exaclty, but maybe since those giant losers are willing to sell part of their conference, maybe we'll agree to this shitty alliance for 10% equity stake in their conference.

As a fan, would love to see an annual Pac12 vs Big 12 champion off.

But yeah probably not great for the conference overall.

It absolutely would be better for the Big 12. Playing the Big 10 champ would be better than the Pac 12 champ, but I really don't want any sort of scheduling alliance with them. There is way too much garbage in that conference.

So, what are the possibilities here?

1. Wefald just has too much free time on his hands and is going rogue and also maybe a little insane.

2. Gee and possibly other presidents are in favor of something like this, Bowlsby and possibly other presidents are against, so Gee recruits Wefald to talk about it publicly in order to move people in favor.

I really hope it is 2. It's weird to me that WVU would be pushing for an alliance with a west coast conference, though.

we (big 12) needs to work from a position of strength. we need to demand the rights to have bill walton call all big 12 basketball games as part of our negotiation with the "Conference of Champions".

that's where this begins and ends for me.

Have to admit, eating a lit candle is pretty awesome.

I think the current proposal easily makes us the #1 conference in America and would solidify the PAC as #2. It's a great deal for both parties.

The team that has been messing up the Big12 for the past decade has been easily eliminated from both playoff appearances. Sure this idea would help in some ways, but suggesting that this "solidifies" the b12 as #1 is crazy enough, but saying the P12 will be #2 is straight bonkers. THE b12 won't even be #2.

We would have the biggest non-playoff game in college football every year. More often than not, the winner would make the playoffs while the loser goes to a bowl game. Pretty much everyone who watches the playoffs would watch that game. It would be far more entertaining than seeing if Ohio State is going to crap the bed against Northwestern and then watching them get left out, anyway.

Why associate with the PAC in this way? They need us more than we need them. We need Walton, plus some other concessions for this to make any sense.

Also, I'm in favor of the thing that gets win the dang day to bowl games, I don't think this proposal helps. I don't like to miss my roadtrips to Memphis and Tempe. We're going to be so barely above average. Get pumped. I prefer to beat Arizona State during college bowl season. Win the dang day CK against Herm under the lights of the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, if that's even a thing anymore, would be grand.

Larry Scott is such an absurdly corrupt villain he may just kick off another round by himself.

What an awful human.  If I were UCLA or USC I would threaten the hell out of him by talking to other conferences publicly.  He would either have to get his crap together or be forced to resign. 

Also, LOL at Pac-12 missing the football playoffs two years in a row and possibly sending (at most) two teams to the 68-team tournament.
