RE: Could the PAC give Texas an ND type deal?
USC and UCLA would never allow it they were demanding $20 million a year when the past PAC 12 deal was being done because of their "market"

and Stanford would not allow it either because Stanford would not be happy with the number of Olympic sports they sponsor while Texas sponsors a great deal fewer and is getting special treatment

then Oregon and Cal and probably UW would not want to feel like little sisters to those three (and Texas) so they would be against it as well

The PAC should do it providedTexas comes in as a full member in 2031.

1) the PAC can go down to a 7 game conference. Zipper the California schools into CAL-UCLA and Stan-USC. Cal-UCLA play the SW schools in even years and the NW schools in odd years (divisions alternate). The California schools play each other annually. The SW and NW schools play each other every other year.
2) reinstate the B1G-PAC challenge (PAC12+UT+Rice versus B1G). Schedule 6 games/year PAC vs UT/Rice.

That brings the PAC up to 9 fixed P5 games (7 PAC, 1B1G, 1UT/Rice).
It brings UT/Rice up to 8 fixed P5 games (6 PAC, 1 B1G, 1UT vs Rice).

In 2031 add Rice, UT, TTU, and UCSD as full members.

They are programs where the supporters are showing up for the institution more so than the product at this point.

There was a time when Penn State was an outsider playing in a 50,000 seater with a chip on its shoulder where it was a fight every week for respect in the rankings.

Now it's just a mega huge program that plays decent football against top flight competition. Championship hunger is no longer there. Fans accept the glory days are in the past but show up because the football is a major event.

It's like these classic names that have raised admission standards which give them the effective talent level of a Northwestern. A Top 10 finish becomes a high water mark when the Alabama's and Ohio State's are laser focused on a national title.

Florida State I feel while past it's peak still has that championship hunger to try and sign the nation's top recruiting class. They'll never take a Northwestern mindset to recruiting.

I'm not sure why the PAC is even considering 16 team setup given the travel 18 should be the goal. I think the money is there for the PAC but they have to build it first

The PAC isn't considering 16. Or 18, or 14.

This is just a "for fun" thread, that someone started to throw it against the wall, for giggles.

But especially not 14.

There is no less reason to expand from 12 to 14 than to expand from 10 to 12.

If there were two solid schools to add in the West, the PAC would've added them.

RE: Could the PAC give Texas an ND type deal?
I'd say the ability to host a CCG was a compelling reason to move from 10 to 12. And getting the ball rolling with CU first in order to try to lure Texas + friends while blocking Baylor also made a ton of sense. The move to 14, however, would force the Pac to make some very difficult decisions about its internal alignment because there are only so many games in CA to go around and the four CA schools insist on always playing each other. 14 is much less compelling unless the two additions are Texas and Texas A&M.

With 14, and 4 in CA, and the remaining 10 demanding a CA game every year, I think you can do that with 10 conf games.

10 is more fair than 9 anyway, as it gives every team 5 and 5 home/away.
