    I'm curious if there is a push at some of the PAC schools to just get rid of football at their schools altogether. It seems like that would definitely be the big conference where drastic change could take place.

    I really like a ten team conference but getting the AZ schools in to the fold of the B12 would be pretty cool.

    I see they left out the comparison's to the ACC and Big 12...choosing only to compare to the SEC and BIG. If they had they would have seen that the PAC 12 ranks DEAD LAST. But using only the SEC and BIG furthered even the elitest view that even the PAC 12 has...and continues to sugar coat the dumpster fire that PAC 12 football/basketball is.

    There has been a LOT of chatter in Phoenix and Tuscson TV stations about ASU/UA moving to a different conference. I fully believe that it's a done deal that they'll be in the B12 w/in a couple years.

    "The Pac-12 will get shut out of the College Football Playoff for the second straight season."

    It's worse than that. Their best teams aren't even that close to the conversation.

    You could actually argue whether or not their best teams even belong in the NY6

    It needs more than that. Major conferences should be reset into 8 major conferences, and give the conference champions automatic bids to a 16 team playoff, with 8 at large (or preferably for me, automatic byes, with a 24 team playoff and 16 at large). No conference championship games. Maybe even 11 game schedules if that counters the too many games argument.

    As it stands, we have the playoff games that matter involving 4 teams, and then a whole bunch of glorified exhibition games that don't matter a bit.

    Great article. Wish the author had put in a little extra work and got the Big 12 and ACC numbers included. Comparing only to the SEC and B1G makes the Pac12 look worse.

    No one can really defend Scott, particularly after some of these facts come out, but a big problem that the Pac12 has is that its flagship programs of USC and UCLA are sucking it up in football.

    We hate to admit it, but the Big 12 has more prestige when UT is a national factor. Until USC and UCLA right the ship, the Pac12 will suffer. And that is not on Scott.

    Just think about from a WV perspective: for their fans it’s a really long ride in a Chevy Celebrity or a Pontiac Grand Prix.

    I know there is a huge cost of living difference and there were several other larger monetary figures mentioned in that article, but this comparison caught my eye.

    "By comparison, the SEC is headquartered in a 25-year-old, two-story building in Birmingham, Ala. The rent costs the conference $318,000 a year.

    The Big Ten Conference office makes its primary home in suburban Chicago and also, has a satellite office in New York. Annual rent: $1.5 million.

    The Pac-12 Conference headquarters cost the conference $6.9 million in rent in the last reported fiscal year. They're also carrying $11.7 million in deferred rent."


    Pac-12 is spending nearly 22X more than the SEC and 4.6X more than the Big Ten in rent alone.

    $6.9 million in rent and $11.7 million in deferred rent! Ridiculous.

    I think ISU could hang/beat anyone in the Pac 12.

    Simple things like road trips would become a lot tougher. Opposing teams (football) always have to drive a semi to all the away games for equipment, that’d be tougher. Arizona/ASU flying 4-5 hours (I’m guessing, no idea) the night before a game wouldn’t be particularly fun. I’m not saying these are huge issues worth scrapping it, just saying the geography would make things tough for some people

    We already do that in a much tougher conference.
