LOOKS LIKE THE CONVERSATION IS BEING BROUGHT UP AGAIN!
 
Formation of a Pac-12/Big-12 Strategic Alliance Deemed “Very Likely”
UCLA isn’t going to become the Big-12’s 11th member, but one former Big-12 athletic director deemed the eventual formation of a strategic alliance between the Pac-12 and the Big-12 – on tier-one rights (as was first discussed back in ’12) – as “very likely.” The move simply makes too much sense for it not to happen. 24 schools, spread across 4 time zones, would generate the leverage needed to ensure future growth in the value of their collective media rights; and the addition of several new opponents on each school’s home schedule would help to solve college football’s attendance problems (at least in the short-term).

 :dance:
Since we're valued at X and they are valued at X-Y and Y is a positive integer, I'm not sure how this will work in our favor if weighted equally between our conference members and their collection of also-rans.

Isn’t that math pretty much like every merger ever?
