Larry Scott: We're trying to find what is optimal for us in terms in having the right fit and, as I look across the college landscape, I already see the Pac-10, more than any other conference, of having everything in order in terms of geography, economics and rivalries. The schools are all within four states with two natural rivals in five markets. That connection is very powerful in college, where emotional rivalries matter. That's one of the reasons why there haven't been many changes in the Pac-10. It's a conference that's been well laid out. Now going forward, we're looking at the value of adding two teams, since that is a requirement by the NCAA in order to have a league championship game. We've been analyzing all of our TV possibilities and having a title game is regarded as a high priority. We're looking to do everything that we can to maximize revenue and exposure for the conference. We're going to try to ascertain whether the addition of even more teams would add value to our current member institutions. If there were 16 teams could csu & CU be headed west ? Sure seems like Scott loves the rivalries.
