    That is a nice divisional format. Every team has a regional rival in the division.

    I'm betting it is 9 to help with Pac 10 network ratings and such.

    Bad Ass!!!

    Once the TV contract and 12-Pac network is formed, the only thing that could top this whole thing is when we make that trip to the Rose Bowl!

    No way! We get a guaranteed game in SoCal every year, also 1 in Arizona, that will help our recruiting big time.

    I will bet it's an eight conf game format. Nine doesn't balance well. With eight you get 4 'n 4 road/home, and it's an easier rotation for the cross division. Since all rivals will be in the same division it would not necessitate a cross-over rivalry game. It's easier to schedule that way and you get four OOC games.

    Too many. Don't beat up your conference teams when other leagues don't go past eight or nine.

    How about 4 home, 4 away, and 1 every year on a neutral site in Las Vegas...that would be money.

    Wainaminnit. You mean California teams don't bundle themselves into an iron clad voting block that is designed specifically to bully non-California based institutions? There isn't some sacrid cross boarder rivalry game between USC and Oregon? Stanford doesn't have a dipsh.it lobbiest on their board of regents who is leading a smear campaign in the California legislature? There is no uprising in Sacrimento threatening to withhold state funding to any California based school that supports a conference alignment arrangement structure that might separate SoCal from NoCal?
    There is no talk of an all-California network based upon some historical conference legacy? Shouldn't SDSU, Fresno, SJSU, and a bunch of religious based football universities be attempting to place the interests California schools above the relationship with a bunch of pathetic square non-California based schools? None of the schools are surrounded by endless miles of prairie? There are state parks, beaches, mountains, and major airports to serve everyone in Colorado's division?

    This sounds too good to be true. Something must be wrong with this arrangement.

    I hope this south division format plays out because of what it could do for our gate revenue and recruiting. I think our natural rival will be Utah but I'm sure we will be able to develop a lot of animosity and rivalry between USC as well. My last year at school they came to Boulder and beat us 42-3 and they must have played "Fight On" 50 times that day. Soooo annoying.

    On another note, outside of the rose bowl, what are the other bowl games the Pac 10 has ties to currently?

    #1 - Rose Bowl
    #2 - Holiday Bowl
    #3 - Sun Bowl
    #4 - Las Vegas Bowl
    #5 - Emerald Bowl
    #6 - Poinsettia

    Actually it was just negotiated a deal to send the #2 team to the Alamo Bowl against a Big 12 team. The payout was increased to over $3MM and the Holiday dropped to #3 in the pecking order.

    This deal gets better and better every day...I think I have a man-crush on Larry Scott for all the moves he's made this off-season.

    so it sounds like a lock that Utah is coming, but we have to be aware that eventually they are going to go to 16 teams and most likely all 4 will be from the south, which would push us and Utah up to the northern division. I wonder if they are looking at TCU at all.
