    California insisted that USC and ucla play Cal and Stanford every year regardless of division

    They go too and that's your 16 teams

    I have zero interest in anything after that

    Roll Tide and fuck off

    They already have 14, so 14+4 is 18.
    OK that sounds like new math to me

    Good point though

    Still an issue
    If money is what matters, why let 16 or 18 the limit? If FOX is driving this to get back at ESPN, I can see them wanting to bring in other Pac-12 or ACC markets.
    I said last year the two conference should merge. Get rid of some of the bottom feeders in both.

    Not add more difficult out of conf road games against each other to “get back” at the SEC.

    Oregon and Washington should both charter a rocket out to Rosemont Illinois and suck as much cock as necessary to be a part of this.
    You get a chincredible just for knowing the suburb where the BIG10 has its offices.

    She thinks UW will be the tallest midget now and that somehow is a good thing? No way she has actually insider info and is being cryptic about UW following suit.

    I can't wait to figure out what scrub teams the PAC-12 will recruit into the conference. Any predictions?

    If UW and Oregon manage to get a pity invite to the B1G the PAC will fold or become the new and improved MWC by bringing in the top-4 teams from the MWC. Hopefully the LA schools signaled this was coming to UW prior to it leaking or that's a really bad sign.

    Oregon/UW to Big 10
    Arizona + Mountain schools to Big 12
    Stanford likely independent but TBD
    Cal/Oregon St/Wazzu merge with the Mountain West

    ND likely to the Big 10

    Big 10 gets to 20 (4 pods of 5) … 20th program TBD

    I could see Oregon, but the second school would come out of Big 12. Baylor, Oklahoma State, maybe even Iowa State. They're not going to ask Washington to join. There not going to admit a team with a program and a fanbase in a death spiral. Even Utah probably has a better chance of getting in than Washington. We ain't such a big fish anymore.

    On the flip side, if Oregon doesn't get an invite because of us, that'll be our biggest win over them in 20 years.

    Oregon fans, sell me on why a conference wants you? Very difficult stadium to get to, no TV market, track record of negative recruiting and going to throw money at kids to overpay recruits that just drives up the cost for everyone.

    Obviously Phil can buy them in but all his shit just benefits one program and fucks the others.

    Well said. Nike/Knight continues to poison everything that was honest and beautiful about college sports. Oregon is a draw, but their corruption sickens the ecosystem around them. Just do it.

    This seems reasonable. I can't imagine Cal holding onto football for the MWC.

    UW has a media market. That's the only hope.
    14th largest media market in the U.S.
    TV revenue is a huge part of these moves.

    I'm no duk fan but Oregon gives them Phil, Nike, The entire Oregon TV Market, and a recent powerhouse program. It would certainly improve their bargaining power for the next TV contract.

    Define what you even mean by national brand and what it pays off for please?

    Notre Dame is the only national brand that really matters and it becomes more and more of a stretch by year. BYU weirdly maybe is the second closest.


    Anyway, long-term, Washington's two likely outcomes are becoming the Northwestern/Vanderbilt of a super conference or becoming some kind of weird relic in a gloried Mountain West and taking the upper decks off of Husky Stadium. Let's hope it's the first option. Oregon continues to be the Dan Bilzerian of college football basically paying chicks to hang out and take pictures with them.

    The main driver in all of this is TV market size. Waco, Stillwater, Ames or Seattle. Which market is bigger?
