I don't think the odds of this one happening are very high, but I thought I'd pass it along anyway: The Pac 10 decides that the only way to get the revenue bang they are looking for is to be the first mover in the superconference sweepstakes. Here's how it would work: 1. Pac 10 becomes the Pac 16. 2. New teams are Texas, Texas A&M, Colorado, Utah, Oklahoma and Kansas 3. The new teams plus Arizona and Arizona State form one division of the conference with the original Pac 8 members forming the other division. 4. Conference further divides into zippered subdivisions. Something like UT, CU, UofA and KU being one group / OU, TAMU, Utah and ASU the other subdivision within that division. Basically, splitting the Texas schools and the Southern California schools for recruiting fairness. 5. The 4 subdivision champions play a 2 round playoff to determine the conference champion. Basically, this gives the conference revenue for 3 playoff games, dramatically increases the odds of getting 2 berths into major bowl games while taking the best bowl tie-ins from the Big 12, and allowing for a TV network that includes the following markets and should be on a basic tier in all of them: #2 Los Angeles, #5 Dallas-Ft. Worth, #6 San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose, #10 Houston, #12 Phoenix, #13 Seattle-Tacoma, #16 Denver, #20 Sacramento/Stockton/Modesto, #22 Portland, #28 San Diego, #31 Salt Lake City, #32 Kansas City, and #37 San Antonio plus a host of smaller markets west of the Mississippi that are in the top 100 (e.g., #45 Oklahoma City, #48 Austin, #66 Tucson, #75 Spokane, #92 Colorado Springs/Pueblo, etc., etc.). What's everyone think? Anyone heard something similar?
