      Would rather see them in the Big Ten. Stanford at the least.
      Someone needs to take a time machine back before all these 14-16 team conferences got formed over TV money and strangle it in the cradle, because it's gotten just stupid now.

        Stanford/Cal in an Atlantic conference makes no sense but really neither do they in a Midwest conference so really what do words even mean any more?

          It makes approximately 50% more sense to be in the big ten.

          words are meaningless. Math is universal.


          well, at least in the span of human existence within this universe.

          • Larry Scott has to go down as one of the worst sports commissioners of all time. How much money did they waste on the whole PAC-12 Network that never went anywhere?

            I do see why they rejected the potential Apple deal though. College sports’ audience is older and likely more adverse to streaming only.

              The real question is why we haven't invited them.

              On a side note, it was interesting to see Saban talk about this. He sounded bummed that it's becoming about money, but that's super easy to say when you are in the top 3 in earnings all because of football. He's personally swimming in money, and his school is swimming in money, so accept that other schools want part of that pie, too. And they are better *schools* than Alabama will ever be ( I have a lot of respect for P12 schools, and I also know that even B1G schools I hate are far superior than Bama is).

                  I'm wondering the same thing. They're perfect fits in this new big ten

                    I mean, the SEC is how this mess all started. They raided for South Carolina and Arkansas back in the early 90’s to start the SEC Championship Game and it’s been all shuffling and defections since then.

                    • Apparently the proposed PAC 12 deal with Apple was tiered.

                      23 million per school to start
                      30 million per school if they reached 2.5 million subscribers
                      50 million per school if they reached 3.7 million subscribers


                      For reference, Sunday Ticket only gets 2.4 million subscribers. Granted that’s slightly different because that’s either for NFL super fans or for those living out of market, while this would’ve been exclusive. Maybe this deal could’ve worked for the SEC with their super fandom, or the Big Ten with multiple national fan bases plus huge alumni pools. But of the remaining ten schools in the PAC, you were really asking to get that from eight schools because Stanford and Cal weren’t going to pull in much.

                        Not sure of it's accuracy, but one quick search shows that B1G schools get $58M from BTN. Which makes the change from the P12 to the B1G a pretty obvious choice. And adding LA, Seattle, and Portland, the numbers should stay pretty steady with the additions.

                              In an actual comparison, MLS Season Pass is sitting at 1 million plus subscribers so it’s not hard to see something like college football, even the PAC-12, hit 2.5 million subscribers.

                              I’m curious to see what will happen with the B1G as cable subscription numbers continue to fall. The bubble has already burst on the RSNs and it’s starting to at ESPN as well.

                              • One of my favorite things to speculate on with these conference realignments is the impact on the non-football sports (because this is all done purely for football).

                                Basketball probably won’t change much with the PAC schools. Yeah UCLA and USC but they’re not as good as people think.

                                B1G volleyball just turned into a murder factory by adding USC and Washington.

                                RIP to any track athlete who just signed on with a current B1G school. Things were already looking bleak with USC and UCLA coming in and now they’re adding Nike I mean Oregon.

                                Also RIP to B1G softball, UCLA and Washington will be continuing their conference championship rivalry.
