Why would a school leave the Pac-12 because of adding G5 schools, then turn around and join another conference that added 4 G5 schools?

Leave before anyone is added, preferably if the B1G wants them.

As for the Big 12, Those 4 G5 schools are all above the ones being mentioned as possible adds. They might all be dogs but theres differences in breeds.
I don't see much difference between Houston and SDSU. Both were market mitigation adds. At least Houston has some sort of pedigree and history with their old SWC rivals and some of the incoming AAC teams. The value of Houston is the Big 12 is primary market access in Houston. Big 12 games in Houston, every week. They might not add much by themselves, they don't carry the Houston market, but they do ensure the Big 12's presence in that market. There is value to the Big 12 in that.

SDSU could do the same for the PAC in SoCal and San Diego. Unfortunately, there are no LA teams that can be added to recoup LA presence for the PAC. SDSU is a good pick and fit, the real quibble becomes do they go to 12 and if so who?

San Diego St. was Division II when UH was playing UCLA in the Astrodome, Elvin Hayes vs. Lew Alcindor, on national TV.

SDSU is a no brainer to me and definitely a similar add to UH but to be clear they're a lesser version of Houston.

That is why the Big 12 needs to go after SDSU. Create a western division by adding Boise State, talk with Washington State who would most likely bolt as this would be their one time to stay P5 if the PAC folds. Plus Boise State is really close to them. Bring in Arizona. Add Air Force and with BYU would be a fairly strong western division. Then the Big 12 could look at having some late night games televised or streamed. The BIG 12 would become a mega conference.

SDSU is more additive to the Pac than the Big 12. I think the Big 12 just needs to continue to wait on the Arizona schools.

completely agree that this is not just about revenue per team; in the short run survival of the PAC12 is at stake. That is why I suggest adding 4 teams to stabilize the conference - similiar to what Big 12 did last year.

If Im Oregon, Washington or a handful of the others Id leave before stooping down to adding SD St or Boise.

The big 12 added Cinn, Houston, UCF and BYU and it has probably saved the conference and put them in better position than the PAC12!

This. The value of SDSU in the PAC is not the same value of SDSU in the Big 12. SDSU, supported by a western division, however might be worth something. I'm imagining some scenario where the western schools insist on SoCal access. SDSU as part of a division with Arizona/Arizona State/Utah/BYU could work. Having a conference footprint presence in CA/TX/FL (combined with OH/AZ/UT and IA/KS/WV/OK) is certainly an attractive position to take the media bargaining table.

I just wouldn't want to add SDSU before any potential PAC teams. If no one comes, then you are stuck with an awkward fit that doesn't have much in common with the remaining Big 12 schools outside of BYU. I imagine that their fans would be more excited over games against Nevada and BSU than they would be by ISU/KState. SDSU can be an attractive option, but they need stronger regional ties to realize their value in the Big 12.

The PAC, however, already has a lot of regional and historic crossover with SDSU. For the Aztec's, that is a much better fit all around even if that conference crumbles in the future.

I agree. SDSU by itself to the Big 12 wouldn't be a great fit. But, San Diego State + Arizona would be a great move for both the Big 12 and SDSU.
