Worth noting that Colorado voted no because Boulder County won't let them practice, they are out for at least the next two weeks. Also barf on Utah, we'd be much better off taking BYU, at least they're a national brand. Utah can take their asses back to the Mountain West.

Yes, lets bring in the weirdo cult and their no playing on Sunday's. 

Particularly so we can send our guys out against 25 year old Sophomores.

No one said they want BYU, dax, Jesus Christ. I know you don't read or retain anything, but I've said roughly 94 times that I don't want to expand at all.

I think he is just full of speculation, as most people are who talk about this stuff. He didn't mention the upcoming TV contract dates, which are a huge factor in all of this.

Yeah, I agree Pete, he's missing some basic concepts here. First of all, there's no way in hell the Big 12 and the Pac 12 will merge/expand whatever you want to call it, there's no reason for the Big 12 to do that. Despite his claims that the Big 12 is behind the supposed big boys, assuming he means only the Big 10 and SEC, this doesn't hold true for UT and OU.

I have given up on my thought that the Big 12 will expand west, the money isn't there. The only thing that could happen is that the two conferences decide to package either part or all of their media rights together with a non con scheduling agreement. This could work but the Pac will either have to ditch their network or improve the distribution.

It's amazing how uneducated most people who cover college sports are about the business of college athletics.

Clams, I think you're on the right track.  Most likely. the Pac 12 and Big XII drop non-con games outside of these conferences.  Also, the PAC and Big XII form a new network contract since it would be a higher quality network then the existing junk they got now. 

P.S.  I viewed/heard this opinion on three different random video/podcasts yesterday about the Larry Scott resigning news.  :whistle1:

Depending on just how much you're into this thread, there is a website that covers realignment all the way down to D2.

That's a classic post right there.

With the talk of having a 12 team CFP starting sometime around '23-'25, there is talk of different conference layouts including conference alignments.  Also talks of P5 & G5 breaking away from the NCAA.  The P5 and G5 conference championships will be bowls and up to two G5 conference champions with a rank of 12 or higher would be required.  All P5 conference champs would be in the CFP.  There is talk about changing the requirements of the CCC(College Conference Championship) game to include the top ranked teams similar to the Big XII.  This may be why these games will be bowls to be part of the CFP.  There is talk of the amount of money to be made could be even larger then NFL playoffs if done correctly.  Interesting times ahead folks.

Saw this idea posted on a Texas board yesterday and now Ubben writing about it... would be fun
Paywall

Yeah, I can't read the article, but I too agree that it would be much better for the Big XII, and better for the success of the arKansas football program for them to go to the BigXII. I don't see it happening because of $$$, but Fayetteville is a fun place.

arKansas is also close in size to most of the BigXII schools, and it's location is closer to Manhattan than any of the other SWC schools that we absorbed.

Plus, if we took them on, we'd have the option of getting rid of Baylor, which still has no business being in a P5 conference.

I'm honestly fine with a new elite division as long as like 8 of our conference mates don't leave us behind

On the upside if we get left behind, we would have the opportunity to become the premier renegade bbs blog of the D2, and that isn't one to take lightly.

That move would put the SEC at 16 with Texas and Oklahoma

That means the Big Ten needs two, and then the ACC/B12/P12 have some shuffling depending upon who.

Initial thought:

Big Ten adds Kansas and Virginia
ACC adds Notre Dame, West Virginia, and one more. (That'd be the hope for ISU to still land P4)
Pac 12 adds four Big 12 schools (Tech, Bay, OSU, KSU probably -- maybe ISU over BU but probably not)

But I don't think the Pac 12 is going to allow that to happen without at least a pitch to Tex/Okla because they'd rather have Texas, Tech, Okla, OSU than the four I mentioned above.

The Big 12 will likely make a counter to Tex/Okla to raid at least the Arizona schools, Colorado and Utah, and maybe more from the P12. A P12/B12 lovechild could develop out of that too.
