Report: Pac-10 targeting six Big 12 schools

Posted on: June 3, 2010 3:51 pm
 

The Pac-10 is prepared to offer six Big 12 schools -- Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Colorado -- invitations to join its league, Chip Brown of OrangeBloods.com reported Thursday afternoon.

OrangeBloods.com is a site devoted to covering Texas athletics.

According to the report, the Pac-10 would place the six Big 12 schools in a division with Arizona and Arizona State, leaving UCLA, Southern California, Stanford, California, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington and Washington State to form the other division. The report states that the Pac-10 -- possibly under a new name -- would then create its own television network that could lead to annual payouts of around $20 million to each of the 16 members.

What's unclear is whether the Big 12 schools would accept a presumed offer.

Report: Pac-10 targeting six Big 12 schools

Better academics than Stanford, Cal, UCLA, and USC? Stanford and Cal are significantly higher in rankings than any school in the Big 10, other than Northwestern, perhaps. And UCLA and USC are in the top 20's of the rankings.
That is an outrage to bring academics up and side with the Big 10.

Better academics in the Big Ten than in the Pac 10? Are you freaking kidding me?

Stanford, USC, UCLA, Cal...I'll take that over Northwestern, Michigan, Purdue, and Illinois. Good God man.

Kansas (basketball) would be a better choice than Texas Tech, which doesn't bring anything great to the new conference. Somebody should teach BaseFan56 how to write a complete sentence.

Pac-10 boldness

After my initial shock, I think it makes a lot of sense for the Pac-10 to take bold preemptive action.  OK State and Texas Tech would be the weakest additions, but both have made improvements to facilities recently. 

I thought my Sooners would end up in the SEC, but now I'm thinking a view to the west looks pretty good too.  This will be tough when the SEC jumps in and makes their offer.

Yes, because Missouri is bringing so much to the table as a state.  What's wrong?  Tired of getting your tail kicked, sweetheart?

The Republic of Texas

The Republic of Texas should have their own conference. Put all the Texas schools in it sinceTexas does not recognize the rules of the NCAA or the USA.

To make it easier for fans change the school names to numbers. Example:

Texas #7 plays Texas #11 tonight on the Texas channel. The winner moves into a first place tie with Texas #4. Wow! What excitement.

I'm going to file this under "Um, no."  If Stanford wouldn't accept Texas alone back in the day, they aren't going to take Oklahoma, oSu and Tech now.

Oklahoma would be a problem - sexual assualt risk to our cheerleaders, when they visit OK schools, too high.  For our mascots as well...
