    [​IMG]The Big 12 and Pac-10 never fully consummated their relationship after Texas balked at an offer from Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott. But what if they did?

    And made it a full merger, which was one of the options Scott discussed with his membership prior to moving forward?

    How would that league rank by overall prestige? ESPN's leaving that up to you.

    Minus Utah -- the Pac-10's newest member -- you can rank the 21 programs in order. Of course, anything like this is going to be weighted toward recent results, but here's how the fans see it so far:
    1. Texas

    2. USC

    3. Oklahoma

    4. UCLA

    5. Oregon

    6. California

    7. Texas A&M

    8. Stanford

    9. Oklahoma State

    10. Kansas

    11. Washington

    12. Arizona

    13. Texas Tech

    14. Missouri

    15. Arizona State

    16. Oregon State

    17. Kansas State

    18. Colorado

    19. Baylor

    20. Iowa State

    21. Washington State​
    What do you think? Go rank them yourself, or you can send me your thoughts. I can't say I'm sure what I'll get from you, but if there's enough humor or insight, I'll post some of the highlights here later on.

    UCLA at number 4 pretty much invalidates this entire thread.

    Tech below UW? is it about recent results or overall.....author states "weighted towards recent results" makes this another example of invalidation. Stanford had their best year in a while (since Ty?) and lost to a 5 loss OU team in the mighty Sun Bowl but are also ahead of Tech who has been in the Cotton Bowl (no?) and won the Holiday over Pac competition....one time was it Cal who was whining they were left out of the BCS and got waxed by the Pirate?

    Missouri and Tech and maybe OSU should be ahead of UCLA, Stanford. This is silly.

    i got to start thinking like a Pac fan, though, now.
