    Walnut Creek, California -- Colorado State University and Bringham Young University have accepted invites to join the Pac-12 conference beginning in 2013. "Those two fine insitutions are a wonderful addition to the Conference of Champions" remarked Pac-12 commisioner Larry Scott in a teleconference announcing the newest additions to the Pac-12 after they added the University of Colorado and University of Utah in 2011. Asked whether there will be two more teams down the road to make it a 16 team conference, Scott was noncommital due to the desire of the four "Mountain" schools which includes Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, and Utah to keep in contact with their west coast based alumni groups. In the meantime, the conference will most likely go to a "zipper" format where each rivalry pair is split up and put in seperate divisions but with the ability to have cross over games against their natural rivals.

    The addition of the Latter Day Saints affilated college in Bringham Young University sparked massive protests at the four California campuses of the Pac-12 conference due to the controvestial issues surrounding Proposition 8 which outlawed same sex marriage in the state of California until the courts overturned that ban. One source from one of those California schools was quoted as having a strong desire to get to 16 teams so the former Pac-8 schools will have their own division and BYU would be in the other division. Another California source blamed the expansion on the Colorado-Utah rivalry taking more time to develop than Scott would have liked. Another Pac-8 source chimed in that there was renewed talk about the Pac-8 schools splitting off from the Mountain schools to form their own conference but that source was reminded about the Pac-12 bylaws which states that the conference holds the media rights of every school memeber until 2024 so a move like that is highly unlikely.

    If this was remotely feasible, who would be more emotional? CSU or CU fan? I know CSU fan would be pulling out the baby oil and a sock.

    CU fans would be dumbfounded along with the rest of the conference so CSU fans. They'd masturbate themselves to death.

    I hope that remains a joke. Utah and CU do have the advantage of being the only conference member within their own states. With the Big 12 being stable once the schools sign away their media rights to the conference for awhile, the Pac-12 just might not expand for quite some time.

    The interesting thing is that if the Pac-12 went to 14 teams with two new schools that don't have quite the connection to California that UA, ASU, CU, and Utah have, could the Pac-8 schools eventually set themselves up to seperate from the Mountain schools once the conference goes to 16? I'm quite thankful UT and OU didn't join last year because with 14 members, I think it would take at least five NO votes to scuttle expansion.
