    PAC12 and BIG 12 should have just merged in to one conference.. PIG 20 with PAC and BIG divisions.. It all started with Big East dissolving, WV going to Big 12,etc..

    PAC schools going to the B1G makes no sense.. At least OK and TX are geographically close to the main SEC schools
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    I'm bummed, but Oregon State and Wazzu in the Mountain West is probably a more logical fit these days. not to be harsh.

    Was it you, me, and a few others who went to the Civil War circa 1997 and had D-cell batteries thrown at us in Corvalis?

    All shit talking aside, I hope we can continue the rivalries (civil war, or platypus bowl or whatever it's called now, and the Apple Cup).

    It's going to be absurd seeing Oregon and Washington play the likes of Iowa, Indiana, Northwestern and Rutgers "interleague"...although, selfishly I'm just glad we're not in the Beaves or the Cougs shoes. What the hell do they do...Mountain West is seriously where they might end up. One guy I work with claims they're going to the ACC and they're going to poach Notre Dame. Funny guy.
    Damn shame, throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that

    Pretty ironic after all the bitching by coaches and universities about the transfer portal. Id put teams moving around as a lot more detrimental than players free movement.

    An interesting dynamic will be the absence of "don't go to Oregon or Washington because they're in an inferior conference." In some ways this will be fun to watch unfold. But yeah, these are broad strokes and seem pretty permanent.

    And while I don't know what the divisions or schedule will look like, the Ducks schedule hypothetically could include UW, USC, Michigan, O State, Penn State, Wisconsin--all regular season. That makes a typical SEC schedule look like Division 3 ball.

    This whole thing fucking sucks. College football can go fuck itself.

    UofM fan here and this is kind of my take. Give me Rose Bowl matchups every week and I think it’s awesome.

    Irony here is "we" will likely have a slew of 8-4 teams.

    That felt dirty and weird.

    College sports as a whole will implode in the next 5-10 years where schools start eliminating a bunch of non revenue sports. Only thing left will be football, basketball and enough women's sports to offset the scholarship count of football to meet tital 9 requirements. Travel costs associated for non revenue teams/sports will cause serious financial issues rather quickly.

    There’s 2-4 dozen college football programs that make money, man. Most teams don’t make money, and will exit the small bracket of the young nfl and probball prep, rejoining the place where sports aren’t that expensive. There’s lots going to shake out because college is shaking out, but I don’t think everything going to disappear especially women’s sports because more women go to college than men now - they were 58% of undergrad enrollment in 2021

    As I said in the Pac12 thread, CFB will become a shitty minor league for the NFL. How about using all this money being thrown at schools and fucking solve the homeless crisis in the US?

    I guess I'm glad it didn't fall apart like this when I was a student or still going to games frequently. My son's a senior at OU. My daughter DGAF about sports. But ya the PAC teams playing in the midwest, central north geo and mid south region really sucks for them. Big save for Big12 though. I'm not sure that the PAC teams gained offset the loss of OU and TX.. Imagine if Baylor bails next??

    Big12/16 should see if B1G wants to trade Cinnci for one of the PAC teams... Cinnci playing B1G nakes more sense.. as does USC or UCLA playing Big12/16

    tOSU would never allow Cinci to play in their conference.

    It’s been floated many times over. They like being the only show in town.

    Not sure Oregon or Washington are too weather adverse.

    Did Floridaman create that meme? Do people think the PNW in winter is warm or something?

    FWIW, ive played in all the conditions and by far the worst to play in was the nasty 39 degree rain games. The ball and field are slippery AF, everything is totally soaked and just miserable. Playing in snow is actually pretty fun because everything slows down, and the ball actually has some grip.

    Also, its not like any of those Big10 teams actually practice outside in inclement weather- they all practice in indoor facilities because its more productive. And they also have have their roster coming from warm weather states.

    Oof, apparently Pac10 chancellors tuned down a $30MM per school deal with ESPN last year.
