    Preuming this is a done deal and presuming all those five b12 south teams come along. What do u think it means for CU?

    I think from a football perspective we are gonna have our hands full being competitive in the short run. The rumored division is very tough. And even with all that tv money ut and ou and ATM and okie st will still outspend us. All that said, we had to pull the trigger or risk irrelevancy.

    We will recruit well. We will have more cash for everything. We will be with a group of better schools academically for the most part. We will have morr tv appearances too

    Texas will still be a monster. I still hope they turn the p 10 down but there is no way. Well have to hope the power of the conf overall keeps them in check.

    I feel a little bad for ku.

    I'm glad we aren't on the outside looking in. At least if the reports are true.

    It is a huge opportunity for us. This is a very very powerful coalition if it comes together.

    Wouldn't it make more sense if Liver hosted?

    Why would UT want to go to a conference they probably can't control and would have to share their monster money with? If I were UT I would retool the Big12 and continue to rule the roost without CU and NU. Just add a few more schools and shake the conference for mega $$.

    I just don't see why everyone thinks UT wants to go to the PAC. For them, the money can't be that much more than they make now.

    Its a huge chance to bring our program up to the 21st century. Let's not **** it up like we did when we joined the Big 12 and just sat on our hands and did nothing while everyone else got better.

    It means we'll 100% have a new football coach in a year.

    Not only that but the job just got more prestigious. Shouldn't be hard to attract a big name hire.

    The State still needs to figure out a way to guarantee coaches contracts.

    If they win, they get to stay. That's about as solid a guarantee as you'll get anywhere.

    you got it.


    How they celebrated the PAC-West invite...

    I never realized how much Mike Bohn looked like Justin Beiber before.

    We will definitely have a tough time competing against the Texas money (that is why I hope for pods). But CU needs money to rebuild the AD... this would provide it, even if it meant quite a few years of mediocrity.

    Besides that, we should never shy away from playing the best the country has to offer. It will make CU better in the long run IMO.

    We have to play better teams to recruit better players. And coaches when the time comes.
    If we were in the Mountain West, we'd recruit MWC calibre players.

    CU is better than that.

    Again, presuming this all happens as rumored, it is huge for CU to have a seat at the adult's table (and the $$ and recruiting advantages that come with that). We may not be competitive right away, but this gives us the opportunity to get there. The alternative would have been catastrophic.

    This can be huge for CU's recruiting. High exposure every year in both CA and TX. It doesn't get any better than that.

    It means that CU will structurally be set for the foreseeable future and will win a national championship. again.

    I'm wondering about the schedule will work with the 2 game home and away rotation.
    Chip Brown and orangeblood black ops are already plotting.

    CCG will rotate between Dallas and the LA colosium. The ASU and Zona will make a futile bid to host in the desert, but will be forced to drop the University of Phoenix name from the NFL stadium.

    Chip Brown announces CU gets a crappy schedule due to SW conference politics.

    Thoughts:

    1. Guaranteed seat at a super-conference which has ties to Texas and California, our two hotbeds for recruiting & necessities for getting us back on the national stage... sign me up.

    2. Pac X, Southwest division will be tough. No tougher than the Big 8 when Nebraska and OU were blading up competition through the 70's and 80's. We carved our niche there, if we have the right coach, we'll have a chance to do it here as well. I think the biggest difference we have between our teams now and back in the late 90's is coaching along with losing the Texas recruiting. We'll firmly be sitting in that back pocket again, a great thing for CU. Where are you GOING if you have a choice? Lubbock or Boulder? College Station or Boulder? Tuscon or Boulder? I like our odds here if we can add the right head coach.

    3. I don't think Texas gets more powerful in the Pac than it was in the big 12. In fact you have Texas ties squared up on one side, and California ties squared up on the other. This isn't goin to be like when the big 12 north got stranded from recruiting Texas in Boulder, Lincoln, Lawrence, Columbia, Ames and Manhattan. The Pac X, Coastal division is going to have it's own area to deliver talent consistently.

    wouldn't it make better sense if all of us have one california team and one northern team on our docket every other year? Eventually we all have to play the same teams within the 8 years.
