    Perhaps a full Merger with the Pac 10

    Wash. AD confirms 'full merger' of Pac-10/Big 12 is on the table | CollegeFootballTalk.com

    Send Mizzou to and Nebby to the Big 10, and you have the makings
    of a 20 team super conference.

    Put it this way, perhaps this a compromise, Stanford may say, okay if we have to take a school
    like OSU, we want a research school like ISU..

    You keep both in their separate divisions and champions play for the conference. Brilliant. You get the TV deal, the revenue and you don't have different travel.

    I like the way you are thinking here. The Big Pac 20

    Re: Perhaps a full Merger with the Pac 10

    This is and has been the best solution yet. You form 2 ten team divisions (P10 Division and B12 Division). You play 9 conf games (everyone in your division) in FB + 3 non conf games. You play 18 games (everyone in your div twice) in BB.
    Then you have a true conf championship game of two teams that have yet to meet in FB and BB would have a two bracket conf tournament with the winner of each meeting for the conf championship game.
    Huge, huge, HUGE power in this conference.

    This would be without a doubt the best outcome, with the exception of a B10 invite, which is VERY unlikely.

    I am a master of reading between the lines.
    Actually it makes sense because if the 6 teams bolt they have to pay a penalty to the Big 12 remaining members.. No athletic department is going to want to shell out several million bucks right now.

    Brilliant idea, plus most TV sets west of the Mississippi.

    Re: Perhaps a full Merger with the Pac 10

    I'm sure people will stay in the doom and gloom threads though...LOL.

    ISU will be just fine. This may not be the answer, but we will have a place. I continue to think we come out of this with much, MUCH more money for our AD.

    Let it play out folks.

    But this doesn't involve panic and fear, so I hate it.

    Re: Perhaps a full Merger with the Pac 10

    BTW, I think something like this would be pretty cool, at least at first glance, all the way around.

    Is there a good way to balance playing your own division of this with getting the variety of the other teams? It would be fun to see some games with those other schools.

    Re: Perhaps a full Merger with the Pac 10

    okay so if were thrown into a 10 team conference with all the Texas schools could we ever win our side of the bracket? we think winning the north is tough... what if texas, ou, okie state etc.. were all in north... umm...

    i guess who cares, this is still best option.

    OWH says the football recruiting staff is telling prospective recruits that there is more than smoke for Nebrtaska to go to Big Ten. They have also called up previous applicants for jobs to see if they have experience recruiting in Illimois, Minnesoata and Michigan. HMMMM. Sounds like their truck is poacked at Lincoln.

    We did not know that the 9-7 defeat would cause such a reaction to their faithful.
