For The Pac-10 to Expand It Should Be Texas or Nothing!

Charleston Duck@@charlestonduckContributor IFebruary 20, 2010

Adding Texas and Texas A&M would add a rivalry filled with tradition and passion, and of course, it would keep the perfect symmetry of the Pac-10 intact.

As for the logistics of the conference alignment, it would be simple.  First divide the conference in two, non-geographical divisions.

Splitting the divisions geographically, would alienate the northwest schools from their main recruiting and alumni base and create some of the same problems that are hurting the Big XII right now. 

For the sake of simplicity, for football, I would put all of the University of _______ schools (UW, UO, Cal, UCLA, AZ, and TX) in one division and their rivals (WSU, OSU, Stan., USC, ASU and A&M) in the other. 

For basketball and all other sports, I’d simply put all of the teams in one division.

You think ESPN would be interested in a possible USC/Texas conference championship game?

Also, adding the Texas schools would make the Pac-10 Network a very viable business opportunity.

With Texas and other Big XII schools (Missouri and Nebraska) openly flirting with the Big 10, it is time for the Pac-10 to call and make its pitch.
