Location: Portland! (and about time!)
Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico (in Mexico City)

Universidad de Guadalajara

Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara

Of course, these may also be closer to Big 12 country... but Universidad Nuevo Leon is even closer!

All four schools, BTW, have futbol teams (or teams named after them) in the professional league in Mexico, three of which are currently first division. Football is apparently kinda big at UNAM.

Okay, here is the correct order for all the Big 12 and Pac 10 schools from Boulder, CO:

1. Lincoln (NU) Big XII: 500 miles
2. Manhattan (KSU) Big XII: 515 miles
3. Lubbock (TTU) Big XII: 585 miles
4. Lawrence (KU) Big XII: 590 miles
5. Stillwater (OSU) Big XII: 660 miles
6. Norman (OU) Big XII: 715 miles
7. Ames (ISU) Big XII: 720 miles
8. Columbia (MU) Big XII: 750 miles

9. Tempe (ASU) Pac 10: 950 miles
10. Tucson (UA) Pac 10: 970 miles

11. Waco (BU) Big XII: 980 miles

12. Pasadena (UCLA) Pac 10: 1,020 miles
13. Los Angeles (USC and UCLA): 1,030 miles

14. College Station (TAMU) Big XII: 1,065 miles
15. Austin (UT) Big XII: 1,080 miles

16. Pullman (WSU) Pac 10: 1,160 miles
17. Berkeley (UC) Pac 10: 1,250 miles
18. Palo Alto (SU) Pac 10: 1,290 miles
19. Seattle (UW) Pac 10: 1,325 miles
20. Corvallis (OSU) Pac 10: 1,335 miles
21. Eugene (UO) Pac 10: 1,360 miles

*Note, these miles were calculated by www.mapquest.com They use the route that is the best route to get from point A to point B and not necessarily the shortest route. For Corvallis and Eugene, they follow I-84 to Portland and then turn south on I-5 to get to Corvallis and Eugene from Boulder. The route from Boulder to Corvallis and Boulder to Eugene, using a non-freeway route via a Boise to Corvallis and a Boise to Eugene via US 20 through Burns-Bend and then over the Cascades to Eugene and Corvallis is a more direct route and less miles, but may take longer. That is why they are both farther on this list than Seattle, despite being more south than Seattle. Either way they are still farther than any and all Big 12 cities.


I wonder what these distances are directly like through the air.

Soccer is "World" Football is "Fútbol" is Calcio (and so on). Same thing.

There is a mystery as to why the Spanish speaking world uses "Fútbol" instead of "balonpie," but I'm not in position to speculate.

The road distances are relevent for traveling fans, though.

Thanks Metropolitan for the explaination. I agree with you on the Colorado points. Intresting to see how things shape out for Colorado in the future.

If Utah can prove that it can have football and basketball success after Meyer and Majerus (which I think it can), then there is no reason for the PAC 10 not to take them.

Utah and Colorado would be the only schools I could see the Pac 10 taking with the wildcard being Hawaii.

Personally I think if the Big 10 gets a 12th member then look for the Pac 10 to get on the expansion trail. Which out west only 4 schools basically fit in - Colorado, Texas, Utah and Hawaii. Hawaii, not in the football sense but other sports which Pac 10 thrives on is very competive. Plus its a good school, travel is the only major problem.
