    Now that the chips appear to be falling with Mizzou and Nebbish, I would love to see the following:

    The Pac extends it's invitation to the six schools. CU accepts, UT hesitates. UT is the king of the Big 12 hill. With CU, MU, and NU all gone, it's even stronger. It figures it can replace those three teams with a combination of BYU, TCU, Memphis, Houston, SMU, Rice and just keep chugging along in the Big 12, which is what it wants to begin with.

    Then CU and UU go to the Pac, which is what we all really wanted in the first place.

    I'd be fine with that. Now change your avatar.

    You got a problem with Stone Cold Steve Austin? He'll kick you ass just for looking at him sideways, son. And that's the bottom line.

    :yeahthat:

    And my problem with Texas isn´t with UT itself, but rather all the baggage that comes attached with UT.

    Dude, I'm telling you straight, UT is a virus. They infect all living organisms around them. They suck up all the energy from their surroundings and then move on to more fertile grounds. You do not want UT in your conference. You might end up with them, but whatever benefits you *think* you're getting will pale in comparison to the massive drama they will inflict on you. Remember, 10 years from now, don't blame CU for what has happened to the Pac. It won't be our fault.

    I don't think it happens without Texas. Texas has the televisions. The Pac-10 wants the television deal. Adding Colorado does add the Denver market - but they don't want JUST the Denver market. They want the entire southwest and west.

    Don't be foolish. Adding CU delivers more than the Denver market. As our newly minted UCLA bruin fan contributor pointed out, it delivers the entire Colorado market, which includes Denver, Ft. Collins, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, etc. into the regional Pac television offering on ABC/ESPN. Adding Utah and CU basically delivers every television west of Kansas.

    If you get suck with UT, you will still be bound by upsetness until, well, forever. They are Herpes, Leafy Spurge, and Voles all wrapped in to one.

    Yes. I'm aware of this. Unfortunately the alternative appears to be AIDS - a slow, awful death.

    And to be honest, I've heard of Herpes, but I have no idea what Leafy Spurge and Voles are. And no, I'm not looking them up on Urban Dictionary.

    But CU has been out there for the Pac-10 to gobble up (alone) for 15+ years now, and the Pac-10 has never acted. I don't think the Pac-10 wants Colorado, and Colorado only, or they would have approached CU a long time ago.

    I think the Pac-10 wants the Big 12 six, and nothing less. There are a lot more televisions in Texas than there are in Colorado / Utah / etc.

    We will all know in a few weeks.

    What the Pac wants is CU and UT. It's by far the most lucrative for everyone. But there's baggage that comes with UT.

    leafy spurge = a weed that gets into your lawn and starts spreading. eventually it takes over...

    voles = small rodents. kind of like junior moles. they'll get into your lawn and tunnel around forever. I have a friend whose cats like them as regular snacks...

    both analogies are very appropriate when it comes to the wHorns...

    I could almost handle going to the Pac with just UT. But UT doesn't want to do it that way. They want to bring along a bunch of their toadies so they can rule the roost. All things considered, I'd prefer to tell UT to go fack themselves entirely, but if it could be worked out to bring them - and only them - then I think they might be able to be controlled and their influence minimized.

    ...to finish it off...

    - UT tries to make the Big XII work and starts to see interest begin to wane from recruits who would like to play in a league that does not resemble the old SWC
    - They try their network and it flops
    - The Pac ? churns out some very exciting football (including a resurgent Colorado team that has found its winning ways) and the new TV deal is more locrative than anyone expected
    - UT is faced with begging their way into another conference on less-than great terms, squeezing into whatever spot may be left after all of the shuffling

    I agree, UT wants power and bringing along their rubber stamp minions gives them much more than going alone.

    I generally go with Sacky on this one. UT is too bloated with self importance and would be better out of the PAC (whatever the final # is) mix.
    Let them rebuild what's left of the big 12 and let's go out west and have some fun!

    I would love it if in exchange for an invitation to join the Pac 10 and the revenue increase we'd receive, they layed certain conditions on CU with respect to investment in it's athletic department.

    I'm talking about things like adding sports, facilities upgrades, investment from the University into the AD, limiting the undersigning of football scholarships, etc.

    I'm not sure if any of this has been discussed, but if the Pac 10 is adding schools, it would make sense that they would have certain expectations for how that institution will operate if given this opportunity.

    To go on my own tangent I would love for us to go in the Pac with some old big 8 members, I want to stay with OU, OSU, KU, KSU and screw the nubs and missou they can go their own way, while ISU meh, not very exciting, drop them for Utah and we are good to go!

    The only Big 8 school I'll really miss is Kansas. There's something about Denver vs. Kansas City that brings to mind everything fun about heartland sports to me. We'll still have it in the NFL, I guess, but that's not quite the same.
