MWC MB thread discussing Ray Ratto piece(previously posted in another thread)regarding possible PAC-10 raid on the MWC at http://www.mwcboard.com/www/forums/inde ... opic=22877
I actually commented on the Ratto article page about that piece.
Not a fan.
* I think if you're a journalist and writing about Pac-10 expansion, you HAVE to mention Texas. The Pac-10 had discussions with them once before and they might have joined if Stanford was willing to guarantee a Yes vote (vote needs to be unanimous).
* And since Texas is clearly the #1 option, you have to throw on Texas A&M in the discussion. Fact is, adding Texas alone brings you more TV sets than Utah and Colorado (or Utah & BYU).
* BYU would likely get only 7-8 yes votes, not 10
* Rattos' idea of Utah not wanting to leave their rivalry with BYU is laughable. It's like saying Lebron James would have passed on the NBA in order to play in the CBA with his high school friends and rivals. Not to mention there are some of the best rivalries that are inter-conference (Florida vs Florida St, Georgia vs GA Tech, Clemson vs South Carolina...or SoCar as I like to call them
