I believe that the PAC is stuck until the Big XII GOR is no longer in effect.
. . .
That could be another 13 years. So in the meantime, what if the PAC invited Boise State and BYU as football-only affiliates? Although Boise, ID and Provo, UT aren't great media markets, both schools have strong football programs with national reputations. They would help attendance and TV viewership for PAC home games (i.e., PAC network).
Boise State is already a PAC affiliate for wrestling, as are Cal Poly and CSU Bakersfield, so I don't see any real issue there. Affiliate members do not vote, and usually do not get invited to conference meetings, so the snobbish PAC presidents would never have to rub elbows with the BSU and BYU presidents.
Also, affiliate members don't necessarily receive full shares of media revenue; they get what they are able to negotiate. I suspect that a half share each would be far more than either could get under current arrangements, so this could be a really good deal for the PAC.
BYU olympic sports are already in the WCC, so the only real issue would be working out a deal with BYUtv for football games.
Boise State could perhaps put their olympic sports in the Big West or WAC, if they haven't permanently burned those bridges. Actually, I think the WAC would take anyone they can get, and having BSU might also help persuade Idaho to stay.
From the BSU/BYU point of view, this would make far more sense than being in the Big East or the Big 12.
