Default pac 10 to expand to 16 (including colorado?)

This report is out:

Exclusive: Pac-10 set to invite six from Big 12

Chip Brown
Rivals.com College Football Columnist

The Big 12 meetings are reaching their climax Thursday and Friday in Kansas City with the presidents and chancellors from the league coming together to discuss pressing issues, including sites for championships. (Look for the Big 12 title game in football to stay at Cowboys Stadium for the next three years.)

But when it comes to possible realignment, the Big 12 meetings may be premature.

Why?

Because it appears the Pac-10, which has its meetings in San Francisco starting this weekend, is prepared to make a bold move and invite Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Colorado to join its league, according to multiple sources close to the situation.

read the rest here:

http://collegefootball.rivals.com/co...sp?CID=1090747

--------
Not sure if this would be a good move for Colorado. It would be tough to compete in a division with Oklahoma and Texas along with some other solid schools. Is it better to be a small fish in a big pond, or move to the MWC to be a big fish?

the voice of the buffs (name?) this morning on 850 koa reported that Utah has a deal already in place wit the Pac 10 and that they are waiting for Boise state to announce their move to the Mountain West. This will start a domino effect sending Nebraska and Missouri to the Big 10 and then finally CU will probably go to the PAC-10.

The PAC 10 will invite those 6 but I bet they are expecting only to land maybe one or two of those. Kind of like spreading a wide net to catch a few choice fish.

That would be crazy if the Big 10 took 6 Big 12 schools....... are they trying to make a super-conference to somehow respond to the cries for a playoff system? WTF would the Big 12 do with 6 (not that great) schools?!

That's a huge conference. 2 divisions doesn't make sense in football because the East would never play the West until the title game. And a conference that size still only gets one automatic BCS bid, right? So what advantage is there? Would the money brought in to the conference from more lower tier bowls make up for that?

Unless they have a deal for 2 BCS bids, it doesn't make much sense for the top big 12 schools to move right now, they already have the BCS bid.

There are more CU alums in Pac 10 states than there are in Big XII states, the Pac 10 is a much better fit for CU than the Big XII is.

Whats really interesting about this is that the CU AD has been saying for the past week and a half that they're committed to the Big 12. Well, I guess we'll see how committed they really are.

What else are they going to say publically until there's a formal invitation?

Didn't you tell all of us yesterday that this has been dead for months?

I'd like to bring in a couple more to the PAC10.

I would assume the conference would be more of a North and South though, due to how the rivalries are already built.

Pac 10 is garbage.

I'm not sure why the Big 12 powerhouses would want to join that league. Travel would suck.

academically, CU aligns more closely with the Pac 10, but I'm not sure how much sense it makes to invite all those Texas schools as well.

I understood it that Utah and CU were the two big fish, giving the Pac 12 schools instead of 10, allowing them to have a championship game (huge $$$) and an auto BCS bid.

/shrug

Frankly, I'd much rather travel up to Seattle and LA for CU games than I would to Lubbock and Norman.

I miss the Big Eight. Screw the Big 12....besides CU needs some kind of change to get back on track after shooting itself in the ass.

CU AD Mike Bohn says that they've been led to believe the Pac 10 will invite 6 Big XII teams to join the conference

How ****ing stupid are you that you couldn't figure out what school he was a fan of? Let me guess, you're an ASU grad.

I really don't care that CU's ****ty football team lost to ASU, I'd much rather have an education from a school that doesn't accept 90% of its applicants.

Love it. The Buffs will get more than twice the TV revenue they currently get.

Roadies to LA, SF, Phoenix, Seattle, etc. will beat the hell out of Ames, Manhattan, Lincoln, Columbia, et al.

The mid-level Big 12 teams would challenge for that title every year.

If Texas and A&M go anywhere it will be the SEC. They just don't fit in with pac-10 schools.

There's no power in CU's house. They belong in the WAC or MWC
