I am not from or am familar with the pacific coast but based on what I have read I think the Pac 10 should go with Hawaii and then fresno St. Why have they not been mentioned?
I think that the Utah politics rule both of those schools out. I am sorry but Colorado, Colorado St and Texas are stupid suggestions!
Given the UNLV problems and academic standards I see why they wouldnt be considered. I know you guys have said no more California schools but unless you go to New Mexico I think Fresno St and San Diego St would be looked at.
The SEC years ago when expanded didnt care about TV markets. They did what was best geographically and fan bases. South Carolina and Arkansas arent TV markets but who has the best TV contract? The SEC.
First time poster and would like feedback. Being no westerner please dont bash me if you think my selections are stupid.
Try not to cap on you too hard with this one... ;D
When do you think the SEC is going to consider UAB?
When do you think the ACC is going to consider ECU?
When do you think the Big 10 is going to consider Kent St.?
All about the same time the Pac-10 considers Fresno St. or San Diego St.
Hawaii would be an option, but they don't have a partner.
Colorado and Texas are idealogical fits. The Pac-10 is like the Big-10...lots of attitude which is about idealogy. Both these conferences are less about "markets" than they probably should be.
I suppose S.Diego State could be swallowed if there was a perceived necessity to expand...just don't see it anytime soon. Fresno St....never! (notice i didn't say it was stupid) 8-)
