Basically College Sports just need to consolidate into two conferences and call it a day. Lol this is a joke.

Just merge the rest of the PAC 12 into the new Big 12 in 2024. We’ll have the Mega 22, the old “deuce-deuce”. It would have memeber teams East-West coasts. Media wise it will have exclusive markets like Denver, Phoenix, Seattle, Portland, Houston, but also will compete well in SF, LA, SD. Just go for it and see what happens

That's going to happen. Not the entire Pac 12 but I can't imagine the Big 12 having anything less than 18 teams by 2024.

Arizona
Arizona St
BYU
UTAH

Adding Colorado and Oregon would be great as well.

So here’s my proposal for the Big 12 Conference:

East: West Virginia, UCF, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Kansas State, Kansas, Houston, Oklahoma State, Baylor

West: BYU, Arizona, Arizona St, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, TCU, Texas Tech

Keeps most rivalries intact and works with the geography. Yes, TCU is in DFW but there are so many Californians that attend the school it makes sense. Tech is sort of caught in the middle.

It won't really matter much anyway. They're all in the same conference so they're all gonna be playing each other most of the time.

Big 12 should drop UCF & Houston

A few things I have read is that the PAC 12 survives and expands by taking teams from the Big 12. So who knows? It's pure speculation at this point of time.

Big 12 is in a more favorable position than PAC 12 at this point, I doubt they’re able to canibalize big 12 teams.

Teams changing conferences is all about the Benjamins and the Big 12 losing Texas and Oklahoma hurts the pocketbook. And adding teams to make it a 16 team conference just dilutes the money more. OK State could be poached if made an offer, and possibly Baylor. Even BYU could change its mind if approached, even Houston. And some speculate about Iowa State and the Big 10.
Money not loyalty will drive the decisions made.

They're significantly weaker than the Big 12. No chance.

Total viewership for top five NCAAF conference championship games.

SEC - 15.3mm (8.16)
B1G - 11.6mm (6.21)
Big 12 - 8.0mm (4.83)
PAC-12 - 4.2mm (2.46)
AAC - 3.4mm (2.04)
ACC - 2.6mm (1.53)

That game was without Texas and OU.

Also Big XII is arguably the best basketball conference already. Outside of Arizona and Oregon, Pac 12 is pretty weak. Over the past five NCAA tournaments, Big XII got 32 bids (27 if not including OU and TX). Pac-12 secured just 18 bids and USC and UCLA claimed seven of those 18

I read that PAC is only gonna be making like $30 mil per school now without USC & UCLA whereas the Big 12 is around $50 mil.
