    Match made in heaven...

    How many years before the Pac 16 dissolves? I have a hard time believing that the right wing states of Texas and Oklahoma are going to mesh with the left coast.

    This gold rush of expansion is going to have some interesting unintended consequences.

    You have a point. Maybe they can call their divisions Right Wing and Left Wing.

    You think the super conferences will fold and develop 8 team division across the country?

    I've definitely given this some thought. I wouldn't put it out of the realm of possibility. I just can't see the teams that finish in the middle each year being happy just being mediocre.

    Greed will destroy these super conferences. At some point, the teams at the top won't want to share the pie with the teams at the bottom. The marquee teams won't want to share with the Washington States and Oregon States.

    Beyond a conference TV network, 16 team conferences really don't have a lot of benefits.

    Good catch. At the same time would anyone thought a conference that combined football powerhouses of Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska, Kansas State, Texas AM, and Colorado would implode 16 years later?

    notice what happened to K-state and Colorado after a few years in the conference though. They lost their powerhouse status and ended up near the lower end of the conference.

    KState enjoyed its best years ever while being a member of the Big 12.

    Iowa State also enjoyed it's best football success in the Big 12 too. They never really had much of a shot beating out Texas. It's hard to compete with that kind of program on a year to year basis
