Tute obvouisly wants the Big 12 to fail because ACC fans believe that saves the ACC. From a business standpoint, neither have anything to do with each other. There is no business rule that supports having four 16 member conferences neatly tied to the four team playoff system. It just coincidence there are currently only four playoff spots. As the power leagues need more revenue streams the playoff will increase to 8 schools.

fighting muskie, I have yet to figure you out. For a person that wants Cincinnati in a power league, having the Big 12 fold would pretty much kill any chances of Cincinnati reaching its goal.


I'm glad a present an enigma.

Truthfully I don't have a horse in this race. My preference would be for there to be 4 conferences of 16 and since the Big 12 is the smallest conference and has the fewest marketable brands they seem like the logical conference to axe. I've advocated a lot of different things on here and have tried to look at things from a lot of different angles. My personal preference is to see the Big 12 take 6-8 ACC schools allowing the Big 12 to stay relevant while also permitting the Big Ten and SEC to each grab a couple programs.

If the Big 12 isn't going to go that route and they want to grab Group of 5 schools to flush out their ranks with a bigger always equals better mentality then yes, I think Cincinnati is the best option due to proximity to WVU and their history of success in the BCS era.

So Let's say that the Big Ten and SEC both hypothetically make expansions beyond their current 14 team alignments at the expense of the Big 12 and ACC.

The Biggest challenge with the Pac 12 tv package is that it's all west coast markets and they can't utilize the noon eastern time slot.

Why not try to grab the best of what's left to build a national television package? The Pac 12 is already built into 3 4-team pods. They could grab 3 more pods:

In the Northeast grab BC, Syracuse, Pitt, and Notre Dame (Notre Dame only has to play its Pod-mates, Standford and USC in football or perhaps they could be enticed to a full schedule that would put them all over the country).

A southeastern pod could include Florida St, Georgia Tech, Miami, and Clemson.

For the last pod take whoever the best Big 12 schools available are.

Shrug.

The Pac-12 is caught between a preponderance of schools being in metropolitan areas, a time zone where networks want them AFTER the nighttime SEC games, and a history of excellence in other sports that, unfortunately, do not move the meters for satellite companies.

I think Larry Scott did very well to find the money he could find. After that, we are in a shrinking market for college sports and don't you forget that.

Agree. Scott got them a bump in revenue a few years ago.

Too many of the schools decided to spend like drunken sailors.

Not sure PAC 12 revenue will "shrink" (maybe it will with cord cutting), but expect revenues to stay relatively flat.

Is there any 2 expansion candidates that can raise the value of the Pac 12? A very long shot(i know) but would the Pac 12 be interested in Hawaii? While not important sports wise they might get the 9 PM slot on ESPN for football and other extra late night games for basketball. The Pac 12 would also gain the use of the Hawaii exemption for both Football and other spots to gain additional games. Would it make financial sense for the Pac 12 to increase the amount of games offered by adding Hawaii and another school?
