I have never visited Eugene...but, can say I am thoroughly impressed with how freakin beautiful the scenery is up there, while watching the Olympic trials. The pics and views around the track and field stadium are breathtaking. It must be an awesome place to go to school.

If the Pac 12 is really desperate to expand their footprint and gain some tv sets in a populous state like Texas Houston could be a step towards achieving that. the trouble is I really think you need a pair of Texas schools to cover the state and the other non-Power 5 options--SMU, Rice, UTEP, etc aren't in the position to move up. The Pac 12 would probably have to add a school within their current footprint like San Diego St or BYU or stomach adding a school with weak academics like Boise St. I'm not sure that the Pac 12 are willing to make either of those moves just for a Texas toe hold.

Pac-12 blew it by not taking the Oklahoma brothers when they had the chance. Now their best candidate is clearly BYU or heck maybe Kansas if the Big Ten doesn't want the Jayhawks in 2025.

Yeah, if and when the PAC expands, I think it's going to have to be to 16 (keeping the old PAC-8 together in a western division).
They could grab BYU, Colorado State, SDSU, Boise State, Hawaii inside their footprint
(they currently have the FBS "ownership" of the Pacific and Mountain time zones)

But to increase their PER SCHOOL revenue, they will likely need to penetrate the Texas / Oklahoma markets.
So if they were to expand, I see the PAC adding 4 schools to a division that would include AU, ASU, Utah, and Colorado.

If they sit still too long, Big XII could penetrate THEIR footprint and grab BYU and Colorado State.
PAC might be smart to think about making a move...

If the big xii goes to big xiv
While not going to 16, I can see the pac xii going to pac xiv to keep up with the other p5 conferences

Options will be limited
I don't see BYU even if the big xii don't take them, as BYU doesn't really fit
Nor does Boise State fit
Nothing left in Texas

Either doubling down on Colorado and Utah with CSU and USU
Expanding into fresh territory with Nevada and New Mexico
Maybe Hawaii?

I think the key part is looking at what the Pac-12's biggest disadvantage is vs the other power conference. The west coast isolation.

I think pushing east and into Texas should be their goal.

I think personally Hawaii is a good pick for at least a network perspective. For football it allows the Pac 12 to start the season a week early:
http://hawaiiwarriorworld.com/warrior-b ... d-special/
(i don't know if this has been reported before here but mentioned on the MWC forums)
http://www.mwcboard.com/index.php?/topi ... -expanded/

It allows teams playing in Hawaii to play a extra game a week before the season stars. The Pac 12 can have a early season games to themselves. Teams in the Pac 14(in this case) can play a 13 season regular season with the same amount of bye weeks. Though it could have some teams potentially playing 16 games a year should they play in the conference championship game ad win out through the playoffs. About the only question would be who would be #14 school. I'm under the assumption that the Pac 12 already has the Nevada tv stations so maybe New Mexico or NMSU would be the way to go to get into the New Mexico markets.

I agree that the PAC12 blew a great opportunity to grab Oklahoma, and Oklahoma St. Where do they look now?
Hawaii is travel expensive for all other sports but football.
U. Nevada would be a good pick as would Utah St.
For football - a must have is Boise St. (yes I know academics suck but their team is good!)
Maybe add New Mexico for market and eastward expansion.
It gets really tricky when trying to decide which G5 school to add. Any thoughts?
