    Washington State is now sighing with relief as they may get out of last place in the pac-10 for football.

    Isn't Colorado broke or something? How are they going to be able to pay it?

    The Pac 10 and Colorado sure did get punked on this deal. The Pac 10 won't be getting their own network, and CU is screwed.

    I wonder how they're feeling now. Anyone been on their board to check? Maybe they're just happy that they can wear their Birkenstocks in Berkley now.

    A bunch of pot-smoking hippies from Rocky Mountain land is about it. Certainly not a football team...

    Nothing. They were being used by the Pac 10 to get Texas to jump ship too. It didn't work, and now both the Pac10 and CU are in rough shape. Especially with USC being irrelevant for the next 2-3 years. CU actually makes that conference weaker. And bringing in a Utah won't help either at this point.

    That is why you lay low in these situations... like JP and GG did. What if we had jumped ship to the MWC right away when things looked bad?

    Nothing as far as I can tell. Denver will add tv sets if the PAC-? Is ever able to build a network. Without a network CU is just taking from the revenue pot while contributing nothing. Buffs have wanted in the PAC-10 for years tho so they are probably happy. Seems like a better fit culturally...read 'icky libs'.

    The best part is that they don't have to pay it, we just don't have to pay them.. Essentially the Big 12 will garnish their "wages."
