    Yeah, the PAC 12 will remain insignificant and on late night tv.

      In light of Katy’s post this cries out for clarification.

      • By the time the PAC 12 wakes up all the Big 12 table scraps will be taken up by the AAC... the new ESPN P5 conference.

        Four schools should be priority for Pac-12 expansion

        It's no secret that college athletics is at a crossroads and much of that stems from the NIL issue, but perhaps even more important is the power play of the SEC by adding Texas and Oklahoma while nobody was paying attention.

        Now, all eyes are on which conference will make the next move and while the new Pac-12 Commissioner is a blank slate, his background suggests he will be more ambitious than a Larry Scott-type who might look at conference expansion as a great opportunity to add Rice and Montana and call it a day.

        From a revenue sports athletics perspective, the Pac 12 is viewed nationally as a joke.

        • Make more sense than KU and ISU.

          Edit: Hmm... more than just a tweet: https://thespun.com/pac-12/usc/colle...ten-usc-rumors

          The USC-to-Big Ten rumors appear to be real. But the Trojans aren’t the only Pac-12 program that may be having conversations with Big Ten leaders. Oregon, UCLA, Colorado, Stanford and Washington may also be in the mix.

          • This is going to make a great "30 for 30" someday.

                • So the AAC HQ is about 500 yards from the Big 12 HQ... This will make it easy for the Big 12 and AAC to merge. If you look on google street view you can see the flags at half mask at the Big 12 HQ and where the conference will be buried: https://www.google.com/maps/@32.8604...7i16384!8i8192

                  They already have the tombstone.

                  • So, if the B12 just decides to quickly add teams from the AAC or MWC and invites BYU, would the skittish decision makers at BYU accept the invite? Is there too much volatility that BYU would want to avoid?

                        I guess if the big 12 folds BYU could always just go back to independence.

                          Seems like everyone should be a little skittish at this point.

                            But it takes years to set up independent schedules. I assume those schedules dissappear once you join a conference. It's not as easy just to jump back to independence and schedule these games again.

                              Yeah, like last year.

                              Depending on the arrangement BYU could maybe make 3x or 4x more than they are making now.
