Default CU to the Pac-10?

Er Pac-12?

Seems that the rumors are flying that the Pac-10 is wanting to expand by adding Colorado (tap into the Denver TV market) and Utah Utes (to get the SLC market). The primary move behind this is to get a Conference Championship game in football, which in turn would be great leverage for the next round of TV contracts negotiations. The SEC has set the standard for conferences, and most are looking into expanding, see Big Ten.


How do Buff fans feel about a potential move like this?

No biggee. The Buffs can lose big games and play no defense on the left coast as well as in the big 12.

Who would replace them in the B12? TCU?

Big 12 is a better football conference. Not sure what CU would have to gain by switching to the Pac 10.

Maybe CSU could move into the Big 12 if CU moved to the Pac 10!

Illinois might be a good choice to move into the Big 12. They already have somewhat of a rivalry established with Missouri...

I have seen CU to Pac 10 Mizzu to Big 10 and Utah and BYU into the B12. Not all impressed by that.

Dunno if the B12 wants them, and find themselves into the same situation as the old Southwest Conference.

Pac-10 needs to expand to 12.

I can see BYU going to B12, and the Utes to the Pac-10.

Trust me the last thing I want for the B12 is another Texas team.

Based on the sources they had and I'm quoting someone from a message board, that is what they had in mind as well. Though they did go on to say they didn't want to break BYU and Utah apart.

Yeah, because the B12 has the Texas TV market cornered.

The only way I see TCU getting added to the conference is if Texas bails and joins the Utes in the Pac-10. That would make the Pac-10 in a very enviable position when it comes to negotiating TV contracts.

BYU will not play any games on Sunday. If they advanced to a national championship game, and it was a Sunday game, they would forfeit. I'm not sure how any major conference would get past that - especially in basketball.

Double check with Bronco Warrior. I am certain he would know...

The Pac-10 Wants CU so they can wupp ass on them, in football and whoops, hahahaha. CU has gone down hill and they can't compete anywhere against anybody. Sad.

But hey, they will get to play USC and Oregon once every year in football. The Buffs will have NO chance against the PAC 10 in whoops though, ever.

CU needs to go to the Mountain West Conference and Utah needs to go into the Big 12. This would make the CU/CSU games relevent and it would give the Big 12 a school that takes athletics seriously.

i agree. although the competition is a lot weaker in the PAC 10 than it is in the Big 12 so they might look a little better

When Neuheisel was coach he was lobbying HARD for this, if I remember correctly.

The Big XII is probably a better conference overall, so at this point it would probably benefit CU to get out of there. In football, USC has sanctions coming, and in basketball CU would be competing for a conference title within 2 years.

Would suck to lose the rivalries, though.

I'd kind of like to see Arkansas take that spot, although it be a lateral move for the school at best. There are at least two established rivalries with Texas and Texas A&M. OU, OSU, and Missouri would be instantaneous interstate rivalries. I hate the GD sooner fans around here.. 90% of which have never stepped foot on any college campus let alone the Norman campus.

You people do realize that conference membership has very little to do with what a football program has done the last couple years on the field and more to do with the geographical and academic match as well as the university mission and that the presidents decide who gets in and who doesn't and not the AD's or football coaches.

Boise State makes much more sense than Utah, but I get CU.
